Has anyone ever bought one that DOESN'T leak? I have 4 of them, one I purchased from Gardens Direct[it leaked from the get go], 2 I bought at walmart, same thing and I can't remember where I got the 4th one. I just know that they all leak.
I haven't had a hose nozzle or watering wand that doesn't leak in the past 15 years... says something about the workmanship today.
That really does stink! I bought all 4 of them about 10 years ago and I paid a pretty penny for them.
I agree about the hose nozzles, too! I can't stand it that I pay almost $10 for a hose nozzle at walmart and it LEAKS. I would stop buying them, but they do help alittle when I have to walk a long distance with my hose to water my flowers.
Same here. Every one I've ever had leaks.Sure is frusterating
when you bought them did they have a little rubber circle attached to them? did you put that in the attachment to the hose end before adding it to the hose? I used to ignore that part to, before I realized that is a rubber washer to stop the leaking. it needs to be added to the hose attachment before putting it on the outdoor faucet. if it's gone, you should be able to find a bag of washers at the store, I did. that should stop the leaks. it did for me. also the obvious one make sure it's as tight as it can get to the hose, & faucet.
I've put the washer that came with all of them in where they showed me at the store. I connected one of them last night. DH put in another washer to see if that would stop the leaking. I didn't tighten it that much, but DH took it away from me and tightened it more...It started leaking again. I've resigned myself to the fact that nothing I can find will not leak.
Then I must be very lucky. I have two and both from the dollar store. One is a short wand and the other a long arched one. Both are several years old, and "cross your fingers here", still work very well without leaking. The arched one has a dial to determine/control the flow of water, which I love...perfect for hanging pots and delicate plants.
Sorry that you are having such problems with yours.
We have one that doesn't leak, too. Had it for several years and no idea where we got it.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
i used mine today just so i could answer your question. like FFG and ve.. i've had mine for years and it does not leak. i have a cheap yellow plastic on/off adaptor between it and the hose and that doesn't leak either. guess i got lucky.
You might try some teflon tape on the threads. I don't have a wand but the nozzles don't leak and some are really junky plastic ones. I don't like using them but they don't leak.
