Re: water woes


I've got several types of spray heads for specific jobs, all with quick
connects to pop on and off easily.  The wand is especially important for
watering lots of pots, good reach.    Just like all in one printers, I don't
like all in one sprayers.  None of the componenets are ever as good as the
individual items would be; each suffers to accomodate the others.
