Water cannon delivering volume
Reviewed in the United States on July 14, 2019
I bought the stream machine to keep dogs and rabbits out of my garden. It's the best thing I have going for pest control. The dogs are my own, the older one is deaf and the smaller one goes nose blind, the stream machine can get their attention from 30 feet or so which is enough to keep them out of the vegetable garden. The rabbits are a bit harder to hit, they're fast and they react to the water stream before it gets to them, but they don't like being harassed and they've been scarce since this thing arrived.
This is more of a water cannon than a water gun. It's basically one shot, a large plug of water, that has to be aimed in an arc for distance. The 35in model is a bit unwieldly, doubling to maybe 70in when the plunger is pulled back all of the way, but the added capacity gives heavier shots which gets the dogs attention. The advertised 70ft range is optimistic; 40ft is more reasonably attained and 20ft is probably maximum target distance for soaking rabbits. I keep mine next to the rain barrel as you need a bucket or pool or some easy water source to refill from as you're pretty much blasting the full barrel with each shot.
At the very least, there's some cathartic and vengeful value in startling animals in the garden with a large plug of water.
