    Pun intended on "burst your bubble"? Ha Ha. Not sure what you mean by garden hose attachment is cheaper. The point here is that what would normally be discarded as trash or thrown in a recycle bin can be used as a garden hose nozzle to deliver a gentle shower to plants. I paid for the kit as water balloon fun. In return I receive 10 hose nozzles that I will be able to use or give away to friends. Good Day...

    Thank You! That is a very good idea! I now see why it is cheaper than a hose attachment.
