I love the concept, however it just doesn't work and it's messy. When switched to feed mode it just clicks. I tried to prime it but that just causes the liquid to spill out of the seams (not around the bottle but around where the the housing is connected together). Lucky I bought this at a retail store so I can take it back. I really like the concept so I'm hoping another vendor makes one.

      I have tried all the ideas in the other reviewers gave and the ones other people have tired. Even the things the company said. I have the original bottle plus another four I purchased at the same time.

          Been using miracle products for over 25years. Big fan. Just not a fan of the liquid feed universal product. It's plastic. Faucets are metal...hose endings....the good ones are metal..... universal product....all plastic. Plastic....to get good seal....beyond hand tight...no leakage from faucet... You have to use metal pliers....metal/plastic don't mix....fitting gets stripped......and once the inside plastic threads get stripped....good luck getting the universal piece to attach securely to your faucet. Have 6 bottles left. If I can't find a way to work it.....I'll do the math and dilute solution myself,....and use 1 gallon watering containers. Just not a fan of this product.

              Bought 4 liquid fertilizer to use with my old feeder. It did no T work. Cleaned the old feeder still did not work. Went out to buy a new feeder and saw the faucet feeder. Bought that with4 more bottles of fertilizer. Still nothing works. Have attached all in various modes. The new feeder clicks but no fertilizer comes out of the bottle.

                it worked perfectly until after two uses it stopped working. this is despite cleaning after every use. it is also impossible to fix. waste of money. however - the fertilizer does work. the problem is the feeder.

                        I have used Miracle-Gro for years; I am a fan of the product but not this dispenser. First, it makes a loud clicking sound but is not dispensing product. Second, from the end of my house (50ft) I cannot tell how much product has been dispensed (in my case, none). My garden store didn't have my handy spray dispenser so I bought this one instead. I should have tried another store.

                            Like most other online reviews of this product, it stopped dispensing after just 1 use. Why would you continue to sell a product that you know to be defective?

                                I first used this product several years ago and it worked well. The next season, the liquid didn't draw and the couple of bottles I had stored within the temperature range indicated had caved in a little (like from a vacuum), so I bought new bottles and when that didn't work, I bought a new dispenser. Nothing works! In one of the replies to a negative review, the company said the dispenser will click if it's dispensing. Mine does not click, so I guess it's a dud. I wish they'd post a mix-it-yourself recipe so I could mix the liquid fertilizer in a watering can and use it that way. I have several bottles and hate to waste the contents.

                                  Out of the package and it sprayed solution for about 1/4 of the bottle and stopped. I changed bottles and still would not spray solution. I sent comments to company and they ignored them -- no response. DO NOT BUY!!

                                    Seems like a great idea .... but, in practice, the units we've bought seem to last - at best - one season, which is really not long. Just replaced last year's model (our 2nd one) with a new one - worked for about 2 weeks - BAD VALUE.

                                          Went to use this product for the first spring fertilizing after using the previous year. The green clamp for the clamshell design was cracked around the entire circumference. Went back to the old end of the hose design dispenser. Not as handy but no design failures.

                                              I bought this unit last year, because it makes for fool-proof fertilizing of plants, shrubs and bushes.

                                              Granted, there are some cheap plastic parts (connections for the faucet and hose), but the unit still works great.

                                              The biggest upside is there is no mixing of the messy powder, and no waiting for the powder-filled sprayer to mix, which can take several minutes.

                                              And with the new Liqua-Feed fertilizers (i.e. the acid-loving formula that takes the place of the Mir-Acid powder), I now have instant fertilizers for every outdoor plant, bush, shrub and tree.

                                                    I love the concept of this unit. I have a much better wand than the one in the handheld unit so like this one that attaches to the spigot. I have great water pressure and went through the first 4 bottles in about 20 minutes each (watering a large area). After that the unit continued to click but stopped drawing fertilizer (no bubbles). I did all the FAQ suggestions (squeeze bottle etc) and even changed to several new bottles. But the unit never drew any fertilizer after that. I did the live chat and they promised a refund right away (very happy with that). I hope they come out with a more heavy duty unit because I now have a lot of unused liquid feed bottles.

                                                        We planted our tomatoes as we do every year and they were just so so. We purchased your liquid feed and used it as instructed. The plants are still yielding fruit and are well over 6 ft tall.

                                                          I've attached this to my drip system just before the shut off timer and it's worked fine for 3 months. But the other day I found it broken and spewing out water from the inlet. After removing it from the system I found the inlet broken. I expect the water pressure from being constantly under pressure and the joggling it endures when dispensing the plant food (it happened while I had it in "FEED" mode) combined to eventually crack the plastic housing. It would be nice if Miracle Grow would make a unit with brass fittings instead of plastic. Until then I'd recommend placing the unit on the outlet side of any shut off timer to keep the water pressure at zero when off.

                                                              The product worked great while it worked. After about three months it started spraying when I turned the water on and then broke off and landed on the deck. Great idea, but VERY POOR design and quality. Not at all surprised by all the negative comments. How do I get my money back . . .?

Disconnected from hydrant and put it away. Went to go use it about a month later and it will not take liquaFeed from the container. I have the lever over to feed, I tried flipping it over and back to feed several time.

There is a plastic band around the middle of the units that cracked open. Water sprayed everywhere from both the units. Great idea but very poor quality.

                                                                            I am long time gardener and have used Miracle Gro products for years. I was very pleased when they finally released a device like this universal feeder that lets me use my hose extensions or hook it to sprayers etc. It makes the job very easy and it works great. I just wish that there were even larger refill sizes available as the small bottle only last about 10 minutes. Also, a tip for users and the writers of the instructions: some reviewers have complained that the device doesn't work. In my experience, it can be tricky sometimes but the KEY is to make sure that you see bubbles coming up in the bottle, if there are bubbles, then it is feeding--sometimes they don't start right away when the bottle is attached and the water is flowing but be patient--typically in less than a minute bubbles will start coming and you will be good to go. The instructions do not state this and they probably should. In my experience so far I have to fiddle with the bottle and squeeze a bit to get the bubbles going about 20% (1 out of 5 times) but once one knows it really isn't an issue. I love the ease and all of my plants, particularly now that I'm using drip and saving water by spot watering here in Oceanside California really look great. Highly recommend--just remember about making sure the bubbles start to flow!

                                                                                Extremely disappointed. I originally had the feeder that attached to the end of the hose and was very happy with that. However, when I bought refill bottles this year, I got the wrong ones apparently, as they would not work on the end-of-hose attachment that I had. I was not aware they were different. So when I went back to the store, I realized that I had to buy the new gizmo, which I did. But it didn't work so I am returning it. I am still stuck with a 4-pack of bottles that don't fit anything since I threw away the packaging when I first got them. Really don't want to go back to filling a watering can and adding fertilizer to each can as it takes many cans to water my plants. Did I say I am extremely disappointed with Miracle Gro at this point since I cannot locate the bottles that work with the end of hose attachment?

I could not remove it. I had a man loosen it. The product kept leaking no matter how tight I made it. I also would like to have the bottle to be reusable. Using a new bottle for each use is a waste of plastic. I normally like Miraclegro products. This time, no.

Problem is that it doesn't work at all. The full bottle I added prior to watering was still full after 45 minutes of watering. I tired a different bottle and still didn't work. It is installed exactly as directions state, after all, it's not rocket science. Yes, I had the dial set at feed.
