Nozzle Woes

Horsekeeping

Lucky enough to have a horse

 
Awareness of the outside world. Am aware of the date. Torn between holding my breath and can’t believe we are having this conversation.

Our new hose nozzle is built backwards. You turn it on by flipping the handle forward. This is wrong. Also, you can that a handle?

Firefighting nozzles release water when you pull back on the handle. This is so that your instinctive reaction, i.e. to pull back, will add water to a situation rather than suddenly deprive you of water just when you might be needing it most.

This is good and proper and the way all nozzles should behave. Even mini-me versions used in pastures. [New Toy]

I had not realized how indoctrinated to this I had become. It feels awkward every time I use the new one. I may need to buy a correct nozzle.

Stay safe. Stay sane.
