Works great, but whistles a little with very low pressure like when twisting to shut off. Does not affect performance, plus it has the Craftsman waranty. Take it back if you need it replaced. It's brass, so it should last a long time. I have two of these.
This really is a SOLID BRASS nozzle not one those aluminum ones that are made to look brass. It works great and will be buying another one for the back yard hose!
Best nozzle made!
No probs with rusting, or corroding. It will change color, but that adds character! I've had several of these over the years, and I usually replace the hose before the nozzle!
