    A friend has asked me to help identify her old hose spray gun. It has no name on it and a bit of googling failed miserably.

    I've attached a couple of photos which I hope will help. I did try to suggest that it might be best to go to Wilko and buy some Hozelock stuff but I think she's quite attached to her present equipment. So, if anyone can identify it and say whether it's actually possible to buy a replacement, I'd be very grateful.

      Might sound daft, but that one in the picture, metal body etc. lasted me about two years.

      I've had a hozelock plastic one for the last 5 yrs.

      I bought this one recently, and I must admit I am delighted with it.

      The build quality is really impressive, and it can be 'serviced' too if it starts to get drippy - the spray face simply unscrews (got to watch the wee spring clicker thing doesn't fly out when you take it off) and you can replace the O-ring; they even give you a spare O-ring just in case.

      The way the trigger grip works is great, as you can very easily control the flow just by altering how much you squeeze - way better than the Hozelock one it replaced.

        Many thanks for the replies.

        @Scrungee. I must say that except for the hose fitting it does seem very similar. It also seems quite a bit cheaper than Hozelock at Wilko. I'll have to check on the hose connection bit but I'll pass on the information.
