M14146 - Spray-N-Grow Power Sprayer and Spray Bottle
LOVE this sprayer and use it every season, throughout the season. It's a workhorse. I have 2 at home, and just bought another 2 at the reduced price. Throw out the batteries it comes with and use good batteries... it is SO MUCH easier than the hand held manual sprays that are so tiring if you have a number of things to spray. Great purchase at the original price... but this last clicks price is fabulous. Highly recommend.
Poor performance, great idea
This item would be wonderful if it would only work after several uses. The battery chamber builds up rust and even though I would remove the batteries after several uses the product just refused to work. Naturally, this happened after the 30 trial period. Save your money and buy a regular sprayer. A word to the wise should be sufficient.
I have owned a similar product to this which didn't last long, so I was reluctant to make this purchase. I'm so glad I did!! I have purple martins and I have to spray their nest gourdes (16 of them) every couple weeks to control the mites. A pump sprayer was so difficult to maneuver up into the gourde openings, and my pump finger would need a rest every couple nests. This wonderful sprayer would get the job done in under 5 minutes, and could reach into places my hand-pump sprayer could never reach. And I could cover much more territory because my hand wouldn't get tired. The batteries don't last long, but considering the convenience of this sprayer, I'll not complain. Now I'm using this sprayer in the garden to combat webworms, and it does a great job reaching into tight spots. My spray nozzle is highly adjustable -- I was using a mist on the birds, and now I'm using a stream on the webworms. Love this thing. I'm ordering a couple more! I will warn readers that the bottle stains if you leave whatever you're spraying inside the bottle, so if you're picky about appearances, empty the bottle when you're through spraying.
Easy on the hands-works great!
I love using Spray n' Grow now that I can spray it so easily. No problems with clogging, & my husband was eyeing it for other chores.
Buy you a case of Battiers
The Spray and Grow Bottle works very good.One problem it eats up your Battiers.They don't last long.While they are working the sprayer is good but it don't last over 2 complete spraying.
Worse purchase ever
If you are thinking of buying this, just take the money it would cost and throw it in the trash, because that's what you'll be doing with the sprayer.
Batteries do not last at all and sprayer head won't adjust to different type of sprays no matter how much I try.
I've given many good reviews on products here, but this product is a pc. of junk.Save your money.
I LOVE this product and use it regularly for spraying all my roses and other plants. Having Arthritus in my hands I can not use a regular spray bottle. This one is GREAT. I make sure that I rinse the bottle and then fill with clean water and spray through to clean out and have used mine many many times and had NO trouble. I have gone through many many sprayer but after this one.... if it doesn't have batteries and sprays by itself I will NOT buy it........ I would highly suggest this sprayer.
I too am disappointed because after the first time using product, the sprayer died, even with fresh batteries. Don't waste money on the sprayer but like the Spray-N-Grow.
Dies after a few uses
Even with fresh batteries, my sprayer died after just a few uses. It was as though it was not getting a connection or something was just worn out. It was too late to return it although I should have kept it and returned as defective. LOVE Spray N Grow but think they should stick to what they know as the sprayer is a waste of money.
Year old - still great
I just finished using my sprayer this morning and realized it is still working really well after a year of regular use (in season). After reading the other reviews, I'm not sure if there is a quality control issue for this product or not, but I have never had a problem w/ clogging or spray strength. I use it on my peach and plum trees (8-10 feet tall) as well as my ornamental pears and it sprays all the way to the top. I run clean warm water through it and let it dry before I put it up and have never had a clog. My plants have never looked better and my hands feel great.
A real time saver
I was hesitant when I read the reviews on this product, but using spray and grow for a while I thought hopefully it would make it easier to apply.And It did, all I had to do is adjust the sprayer head for the spray I wanted and go. I have used this spray 1 to 2 times a week and never had a problem. would I recommend it YES, makes it so much easier and less time consuming to apply the spray and grow
I too was excited when I saw this battery powered spray bottle as I have hand problems and thought this would be the answer. I used it several times the first month I had it and, although noisy, it worked OK. The next time I went to use it, it did not work. I changed the batteries, rinsed it thoroughly (which I always did each time I used it) but to no avail. It was dead as a door nail and I could not get it to work. It was too late to return it. I was very disappointed that it did not last and I was out the money.
