Dramm Touch N Flow Sunrise 30-inch Rain Wand
The Dramm Rain Wand has been a favorite because it impersonates a good rain. The water-breaking nozzle waters quickly, thoroughly, and well, without disturbing soil and plants. The new Dramm Touch N Flow Sunrise Rain Wand is even better -- more comfortable and user friendly. The easy-to-grip handle has levered shut-off valve and metal clip to keep handle in place for continuous flow -- impressive. The blueberry and raspberry handle brings a smile. The 30-inch Sunrise model 12806 with a lifetime guarantee costs around $22 to $25.
