I used the garden hose for the first time this year yesterday, and discovered the nozzle had split in such a way as to drench the holder amusingly.
I got a new nozzle today - this brass one was on special offer and I thought maybe it would last better than the plastic one I had before. It's not going to. It's off back to the shop at the next opportunity. It seems to spray water in random directions and the spray is very uneven. No use at all. No wonder it was on special offer.
I think I'll just pay the extra 50p for a plastic one...
