Hose Spray Guns Buyer’s Guide
Of course, the amount of water produced by your spray gun will depend on your water pressure to some extent. However, some spray guns make the best of even low pressure to give you a good spray and a wide range. If you have very high water pressure it is worth choosing a spray gun that you can adjust so as not to blast your delicate plants too hard.
The best garden hose spray gun will feature a range of spray patterns that will make it easy to do a variety of jobs from watering delicate plants and seedlings to washing the dog to cleaning the car or patio.
If comfort is important to you, then choose a hose spray gun with an ergonomic handle, comfortable rubberized grip and an easy to use lock-on function. If you choose an all metal handle it will not be so comfortable and will be very cold to the touch so I would recommend using gardening gloves when using this type of spray gun in winter.
Ease of attachment
Most hose spray guns are simple to attach to the hose with a click on connector. This makes it easy to change attachments whenever you need, perhaps to attach a sprinkler.
No one wants water dribbling from their spray gun and trickling down their hands and legs. For this reason, you want a nice secure connector that will create a nice tight seal. Plastic hose spray guns tend to leak after a season or two so choose a solid metal body for a longer lasting, leak-free spray gun.
How do I attach a garden hose spray gun?
The best garden hose spray gun for the UK market will use simple click connectors. The gun will come with a connector at its base. If you have a suitable adaptor on you hose you can just click the different attachments such as spray guns and sprinklers into this connector. If you don’t have a connector on your hose these are easy to buy, just search for gun/sprinkler connectors. They are available in plastic or brass but the brass ones tend to be more durable and less prone to cracking and leaking.
How can I stop my hose spray gun from leaking?
If the leak is coming from the actual spray gun you may need replacement O rings or washers. You will need to dismantle the gun to replace these, but it is not too difficult to do. If the hose is leaking at the connection, then you may need a new connector. If your spray gun is plastic, then it may have worn out beyond repair and need replacing. Plastic hose spray guns rarely last for more than a couple of years without wearing out.
