Mighty Blaster sold by Telebrands claims to be a spray nozzle modeled after the kind firefighters use that cost thousands of dollars. They boast that if you attach Mighty Blaster to your garden hose you can shoot a stream up to 30 feet that has 50% more power than a traditional hose.
How Mighty Blaster Works
Mighty Blaster is what’s known as a “Fireman’s Nozzle,” a special attachment to an ordinary hose that they state is similar in design to the ones they use on fire trucks. However, it should also be noted that fire trucks also use special high-pressure hoses and are designed to shoot much farther (and use more water) than an ordinary garden hose.
Mighty Blaster is said to be made from aircraft-grade aluminum, high-grade stainless steel, and comes with a handle to reduce arm fatigue. To use Mighty Blaster, they instruct you to attach to any garden hose. Then, turn on the water and adjust the nozzle; they claim the Mighty Blaster delivers everything from a fine mist to a powerful stream.
They add Mighty Blaster uses 40% less water and 50% more power than a traditional nozzle. Mighty Blaster boasts you can do everything from wash the second story window to mist your flower garden and it will be the only hose attachment you ever need to own.
Mighty Blaster Cost:
$27.98 for one Mighty Blaster (billed as $19.99 plus $7.99 S&H). You can add a second Mighty Blaster and a Pocket Host Ultra for another $12.99 in fees making the total $40.97.
Telebrands has a 30-day money back guarantee for Mighty Blaster but this only is for the initial $19.99 and not any of the added-on fees or products. You must also include a “detailed” explanation with your return, otherwise your request could be refused.
Bottom Line: Is Mighty Blaster a “Hot” Hose?
Spring has sprung and a product like Mighty Blaster seems especially tempting to clean away winter’s dirt and/or water the yard. We’d just like to point out a few things.
First, while Telebrands may try and convince you this is a brand new idea in hoses, the reality is that there are many different Fireman’s Nozzles on the market. And, while aluminum and steel may sound like solid materials for a nozzle, some manufacturers claim that chromed brass is better because it is stronger and won’t corrode.
There aren’t very many customer reviews of Mighty Blaster, but those that exist do not paint the picture of a sturdy nozzle. Over at our sister publication Highya, consumers complained Mighty Blaster merely changed the pattern of the spray, not the pressure, or simply didn’t work at all. The Pocket Hose Ultra also gets “hosed” by consumers for poor construction, popping leaks immediately or within a few uses.
If you are interested in Mighty Blaster, let us let you in on a secret: even though they claim the offer is not available in stores, it most likely will be (and at a cheaper price): Telebrands makes 95% of its money off retail sales, not from the phone or web.
