Mine went bust and I need a new one and have no idea what to get. The one I had was too short and I felt like I had to bend over to use it-kind of defeats the point, and hurt my lower back, plus it leaked everywhere. So, I'm just wondering what everyone else is using? I'm looking for something with some length to it but not too heavy, and doesn't leak. It doesn't need a dozen spray patterns just the basic few are fine. Any ideas?

This may be too small in scale for what you might be looking for but, I had something similar to this but instead of getting water from the sink, I attached it to the faucet on side of house and used it to water succulents. Water wand had only 2 settings: fine mist or sharp stream of water. Hose was not that long but it reached far enough for me to water pots placed alongside the house eaves. I say "had" because it developed a hole in the spot where hose met wand so hard to fix. I've been looking at this one by Gardener's Supply because it looks to be very similar; good luck in your hunt!

it is too small, I am looking for something to water a large garden using a regular garden hose, I am 100 ft away from my water source so unfortunately have to drag the hose around w me.

I like the Dramm water wands: http://www.dramm.com/html/main...

They seem to be bullet proof, lots of different heads available for different conditions.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

@crawgarden I like the idea of customizing your hand water wand parts. From from the Dramm site posted, you have to order by the case. Obviously a commercial site? I guess I am going to have to start shopping around for this brand. I like the many features. I tip my hat to you.
