You fill the cannon by pulling out the plunger and sucking up water into it - it does not have a discrete reservoir - the barrel is, in effect, the reservoir. It is harder to store whilst full of water, as, unless you keep it upright the water is inclined to drain out of the nozzle - it seems designed to fill and fire on demand. The amount of "fire" you get out of a fill depends on how forcefully you push the plunger in when firing - you determine the pressure and duration of the shot, and, therefore, how long a fill lasts. I would suggest however, a fill will only last two or three strong shots at most. The range is impressive providing you have the strength to ram the plunger in hard, and, I think I've managed about 40 feet, although, up to 60 feet is claimed to be possible. The result is also inclined to be a burst rather than continuous stream of water albeit of considerable volume - it will soak the opposition if you hit them.
This is not really a toy (even though Amazon classify it as such) and it is suited to teenagers (recommended for 14 upwards on the pack) and adults. Apart from any danger from misuse, I don't think a child would have the strength to operate this cannon effectively. It is certainly great fun to use with a long range and considerable "soaking" power.Read more ›
This morning, one of the neighbours three cats was leisurely cleaning herself and sunbathing in the garden - totally unconcerned by our presence. My husband stalked his target - she stood her ground unconcerned, knowing she could run for it at the last minute thwarting any kind of retribution! Well - things were very different this time - he didn't need to get too close! He took aim and pushed the plunger. A strong stream of water shot from the gun and was bang on target. Success - first time. Her exit over the garden fence was satisfyingly rapid having received a good soaking and, I suspect, a bit of a shock! The nice thing about this method of control is that the cats are not harmed. However, using a cognitive/behavioural approach (entering our garden brings about an unpleasent soaking) we hope to reduce their attraction to our domain for toiletting and garden wrecking purposes! One success and we are feeling much more confident that we can achieve this! Fantastic product - husband loves it already!
I agree with other reviewers that the range is not as good as claimed by the manufacturer. However, my gardens are not too deep and I have found that I can easily reach over the first 30-40 feet from an upstairs window. (Not sure what my neighbours think I am doing, though!)
It does dribble water from the exhaust hole when filled, but holding a thumb over the end while transporting the cannon and aiming isn't too much of an issue.
The item came with a sticky lubricant (Vaseline?) on the mechanism, and unlike some reviewers, I have had no problems with the item jamming. Just need to remember to completely empty it after use.
Tip: When on cat watch, keep a bucket of water ready to load and fire and, if possible, keep a suitable window open so that the cat's aren't warned before you fire.
I recommend this for those wanting a pro-active cat deterrent, and one that does no harm to a cat other than scaring it off the premises.

A very effective humane means of deterring a cat that has been using my garden as a loo and wild bird killing ground. Well made and robust. Delighted with this excellent product.Published 5 days ago by Phil Harding
Your advert claims a 60 feet range. I have not achieved more than 30 feet so am somewhat disappointed by this incorrect claimPublished 13 days ago by brendan moss
