Difficult to rate an item like this when we have only used it for a short period. It's construction is very sturdy and it's well made. But it's difficult to get it to hold pressure, unless we tighten everything with a pair of monkey grips! We ordered this as an alternative to Hozelock, they only survive on site for a short period of time on site before the seals go and they gradually break down. So I could assess this sprayer better after a year or so!
