Too right!
Watched the reviews til I got blue in the face...
So parted with my dosh for Grainfather..
TBH I'm chuffed I bought it! No matter the cost...a few brews under my belt and being one handed it's a god send tbh!!
Like you say we get what you pay for...

Likewise. Wanted to do AG and looked at a lot of reviews. Saw nothing but good things about the GF so I went for it. No regrets.

Run the hose from your garden or from inside your house via an adaptor that fits a hose fitting on any tap
