This is not a commercial

No, I PROMISE I don't own stock in this company nor will I receive kickbacks or free samples after I post this blog entry. I simply decided that I'd like to share what has come to be our favorite water hose nozzle. Trust me, we went through PLENTY of nozzles over the years. We used to use those long-stemmed watering wands with a dial on the head that you could turn and choose the spray pattern. Those lasted a year or so, then they broke. Grrrr. What a waste of money. 

Then, after researching online and reading plenty of reviews, I decided to try out a hose nozzle that I'd spotted on Amazon. BINGO! Meet our Bon-Aire Original Ultimate Aluminum Hose Nozzles. I purchased our first one in April 2011 and our second one in February 2014. I don't even remember which one is the newer one, and you can't tell by the photos either. They've held up beautifully, and we don't bring them inside during the winter either. 

It's that time of year when we have to water just enough to help the plants survive the hottest summer heat. This year, we didn't start until late July, thanks to the recent rains and not-as-searing-as-usual temperatures. Every other morning, we get up at sunrise and head outside. I take care of the back yard, and James does the front. September's just around the corner!

Thanks for the info. I invested in the lightweight, non-kinking Water Right hose. Not cheap but I can lug it around without getting a hernia. A plug for Friends of Balcones, if you order through Amazon Smile .5% of the purchase will be donated to us.

Thanks for sharing this Sheryl! I think all gardeners have been through a lot of nozzles trying to find just the right one. (Just like Goldielocks!) I'll give this one a try too!

I sent a link to The Hub - he typically claims having the final say on all thing hose and hardware. I did note some reviews stating their water pressure was low for this nozzle and ours often is - I'll let you know (if we get one and pressure is an issue) so we can spread the word. Thanks!
