5Nice to have something that works
By D. Solberg
A lot of life is dealing with little frustrations - the leaky faucet, the door that doesn't close right, the sink that wobbles, the refrigerator that sometimes freezes food.

That's why I felt compelled to write a review about a shut-off value. This value will be one of those things that just works simply and easily, and it's made so strongly that I suspect it will always work. Simple, dependable, and made in the USA to boot.

5Finally, some quality!
By Chamomile
Just received the Dramm HD brass shut-off valve and am very impressed with the quality. I have a high-flow hose for filling large watering troughs and I've gone through a LOT of cheap plastic hose-end shut-offs over the years. I usually buy 2-3 a year. They work great for about 2 months, then work lousy for 2 months, getting progressively worse until I eventually get totally disgusted, throw it away and run out and waste $10 to buy another of the exact same piece of junk that I had before because that's all that's available at the local Depot of Homes.

I reserve judgement till I use it for at least a year but the Dramm looks good. I tested the flow: I filled a 5 gallon bucket in 24.0 seconds with nothing on the end of the hose, it took 24.5 seconds with my new shut-off valve. Not bad!

UPDATE:
Okay, here it is two years later and the Dramm shut-off valve works as well today as the day I received it. I figure it's already paid for itself 2 or 3 times over. I use it a lot, it's great for anything from watering horses(full flow with 75 feet of 3/4" hose)to washing cars(restricted flow, a spray with lots of pressure)to trickle watering a new tree. I'm thinking of ordering another.

5The best shut-off valve available today.
By Jeffrey Caban
I have tried several shut-off valves from Nelson,Gilmour,& Sears and while some of them worked OK, none of them had the flow or the robust construction of the Dramm.
I use it around the yard for my sprinkler as I don't have to run back & forth to the spigot to regulate water flow as I move the sprinkler across my odd shaped yard.
I recent have been using it for my pool slide as it is extremely fussy to regulate the flow of water with the spigot which is over 30 feet away.
While it is more costly than the previously mention valves it is also hands down the best made.
It is a premium piece made in the USA weighing in at over half a pound. It flows better other valves due to it's 12mm inner opening.
What I like most about this valve is the extra large on-off switch located on the side of the valve, with most shut-off valves you need two hands to turn it on or off, not so with this Dramm, just using your thumb will accomplish the task.
If you are looking for a quality piece to purchase just once Dramm is the answer.
