How to successfully install and choose a lance or pistol?
To install your watering system, you first need to be interested in the watering connection. It allows you to attach to the water outlet tap your garden hose to which you connect a quick coupling in case of a mobile connection.
Attention, make sure the right size of step to choose your nose tap! You can choose between 15 x 21 mm; 20 x 27 mm and 26 x 34 mm, ie 1/2; 3/4 and 1 "(inches) The most common are 15 x 21 mm (inside diameter 16.1 mm) and 20 x 27 mm (inside diameter 21.7 mm).
Your hose connected to the water supply point and equipped with fittings, you can then choose your watering accessory. There are many:
- Single sprinkler, jet stick or sprayed;
- The multijet lance , different pressures and forms of jets;
- The high-pressure lance which, as the name implies, concentrates a high pressure jet;
- The traditional spray gun with watering through several nozzles.
All of these equipment can benefit from options like trigger locking to control the water outlet. Dedicated materials are most often made of plastic, brass or lacquered steel, of varying quality and finish depending on the price.
What fitting to use to connect his watering lance?
Spray gun, water lance and high pressure lance
It is the best friend of gardeners but also landscapes budding! It allows to vary the flow and the pressure of the water to adapt to the use - in a gentle and delicate way on the flowers or the young shoots where it passes in fogging mode. You can opt for a stronger flow in order to water large areas, trees or plants. Guns with up to 10 different jets are available. It has on its handle a trigger allowing a better comfort of use . Some guns may have tanks to allow the diffusion of additive products (cleaning).
High pressure lance
It is an accessory that makes it possible to compensate the use of a high pressure cleaner. You can connect it directly to the hose and benefit from a high pressure jet ideal for cleaning the exteriors and the car. The high-pressure lance lance has a water-stop system that avoids running to the tap to stop the flow. Its handle is generally 60 to 80 cm long, thus reaching hard-to-reach places - such as the interior of the wings of cars. Be aware that there are also high pressure lances with tanks to allow the diffusion of additive products.

Starting in 2006, in the South-West, I helped people with renovation or contruction projects. My expertise and my curiosity led me to look further into innovative ideas for myself and my clients.
Indeed, to live your passion is also to transform the space you live in and the objects you use daily. My family love my creations and ideas that I bring into their lives!
My favourite thing to do: use colour to brighten up interior space. But also tips to hide away clutter. Your home is just never big enough, is it? It is thus a great pleasure to share my tips with you, so that you also can take as much pleasure as I do when starting up your next project!
