MLVOC Garden Hose Sprayer Review

MLVOC Garden Hose Sprayer Review

My garden hose sprayer broke back in April, which really bummed me out because I have a number of gardens that I water regularly. I personally prefer sprayers with multiple settings so that I can choose the best spray for each type of plant. I was therefore excited when recently offered the opportunity to review the MLVOC garden hose sprayer in exchange for my honest opinion.

Price

The MLVOC garden hose sprayer currently retails for $15.95 on Amazon. I paid around $10 for my previous sprayer a couple of years ago, and most other similar sprayers retail for $8 to $16. My old spray did not have a soap attachment, just the nozzle. I therefore consider the price of the MLVOC sprayer reasonable.

Design

With two modes, the versatile garden hose sprayer from MLVOC allows you to choose between plain water and water mixed with soap. The nozzle features eight water spray patterns for maximum flexibility: jet, center, flat, stream, rinse, cone, mist, and shower. The convenient pistol front trigger switch allows you to turn the water on and off easily with a squeeze of the hands. The flow remains on or off until you press the trigger again. The rotating button on the top of the sprayer allows you to adjust the flow from water to foam, and you can adjust the water-to-soap ratio. The MLVOC garden hose sprayer is made from high quality ABS materials.

Performance

The garden hose sprayer from MLVOC is made to fit the MLVOC expandable hose but also fits other garden hoses. To place the sprayer on a regular hose, unscrew the lock ring from the bottom of the handle and then screw the sprayer onto the hose. At first I could not get the sprayer on my hose tight enough. Water leaked at the connection point. Luckily The Monarch Mommy saw my initial Instagram post about the problem and suggested a rubber ring, which solved the leak issue. Installing the MLVOC garden hose sprayer onto a hose is easy, but definitely have a rubber ring on hand in case the connection leaks water!

Once I added the rubber ring, I was quite pleased with my MLVOC garden hose sprayer. The eight settings allow me to control the water spray. I personally like to use the shower setting when watering my flowers. Jet works great for washing windows and siding. Rinse is perfect for rinsing off soap and for filling up small watering cans. Switching between the settings is easy. With the water turned off (or on if you do not mind getting yourself a little wet), simply turn the dial on the front nozzle of the sprayer. I can easily switch between the eight water spray patterns. With the knob on the top of the sprayer, you can control the flow from water to foam adjust the water-to-soap ratio. While switching between the nozzle settings is super simple, the knob on top is a bit harder to turn. When my hands were wet, I could not get the knob to move. I had to try my hands and the sprayer and then grip the knob hard to switch to the soap setting. While I like that I can control the ratio of water to soap, I wish that the top knob were a little easier to turn.

After getting past the difficult-to-turn knob, I found the MLVOC garden hose sprayer quite easy to use. First I filled the screw-on soap dispenser with some Palmolive dish soap. I like that the dispenser is easy to use. I can simply remove it from the rest of the sprayer and add my soap inside my house without having the drag the hose around or drag soap outside. After reacting the clear plastic dispenser to the sprayer, I selected my desired water-to-soap ratio using the knob on top of the sprayer. Then I turned on the hose and went to work. I cleaned some of my windows and the siding under the awning at my side door. The soapy mixture sprayed on well, and the rinse setting blasted away grime and dirty water. My home looks sparkling clean thanks to my garden hose sprayer from MLVOC.

Final Verdict

If you are shopping for a new versatile sprayer that attaches to your hose, definitely check out the garden hose sprayer from MLVOC. With two modes, the sprayer allows you to choose between plain water and water mixed with soap. The nozzle features eight water spray patterns for maximum flexibility: jet, center, flat, stream, rinse, cone, mist, and shower.

The rotating button on the top of the sprayer allows you to adjust the flow from water to foam and the water-to-soap ratio.

I also recommend having a rubber ring on hand because I found that the sprayer did not securely connect to my hose otherwise. Overall, I am pleased with my new MLVOC garden hose sprayer.
