Flexi Blaster Secret Tip
In spite of what they say on the website and in the infomercial, Flexi Blaster will very likely be at your local retailer that has an “As Seen On TV” Aisle. Fun fact: Telebrands makes 90% of its sales through retail outlets, where it’s often sold cheaper than the price advertised on TV.
Telebrands is one of the largest “As Seen On TV” companies in the industry; as such they have their ups and downs (see our article on the History of Telebrands). In August 2014, the state of New Jersey sued Telebrands for violating their Consumer Fraud Act. The attorney general said they have received over 340 complaints from consumers claiming to have been billed for products they didn’t order and had difficulty getting their money back. Telebrands denies these allegations and the lawsuit is still pending.
Telebrands recently settled a class action lawsuit with consumers who bought the Pocket Hose, due to “false and misleading advertising” and selling a product that was defective.
Alternatives to Flexi Blaster
There are a great many different nozzles to choose from, including so-called fireman’s nozzles as well as gentle rain misters. We have to tip our hat to a website called The SweetHome that has spent long hours trying out many different kinds of garden nozzles, and their conclusion is the Gilmour Full Size Zinc Pistol Grip Nozzle is the best because of its versatility and durability. The classic Gilmour seems to prove that at least in the world of hose nozzle designs, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
