Remote controlled candles are the best idea. I can scatter them around the pool and patio, and quickly operate them from the comfort of our deck chair. No need to walk around and "light" each one.
This gives me more time to concentrate on opening a good bottle of wine to enjoy with family and friends.
Pros: Quality, Appearance, Durability

Does anyone have an issue with the "1/2" hose pressure-wise?

No problem with it, but I also did not want a heavy hose that i needed to have "fireman arms" to reel it back in.
I own 3 of these in various areas of my garden, and love them.
However, for my gardeners, I have separate hoses that are strongr and put out more pressure.

How do I keep the hose from automatically retracting?

Successfully installed and mounted. However, whenever I pull the hose out it retracts immediately.
once it is out as far as you want it, pull it a bit further and give it a good snap.
that ought to do it.

Timer on the remote

I bought these candles (I LOVE them) and have lost the directions to the remote. I've tried using the timer buttons but the candles don't turn off automatically. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks
Change the batteries, would be my first step.
Then manually turn the candle on, and then shut it off with the remote.
It should work that way. All 30 of mine do..

Is there a rain water wand that works with this?

I really love my rain water wand that I had been using to water my plants. Since I switched to this hose with the smaller 1/2" diameter, the water just trickles out from my rain water wand and is not usable. I think it must be because some water pressure has been lost from having switched to the smaller diameter hose. I do have the recommended nozzle for this product, which works with various adjustable pressures but does not produce the same kind water flow as a rain water wand. Does anyone know of a rain water wand nozzle that will work with this 1/2" diameter hose?
google to find one that is the correct dimension.

Do I need a remote for each candle?

I didn't buy any remotes because it said that the candles had timers (most of my electric candles have timers as an option on the switch). What I didn't realize is that the timer only works if you have the remote.
The battery operated flameless outdoor candles that i bought all work with 1 remote.
i have about 30 of them in various sizes in different places inside and oout, so i bought a couple of extra remotes, but you could get by with just one.
Don't forget you need to put batteries in them - they are not supplied by Frontgate.
I live in the Palm Springs are where it can get above 100+F, and I've had the candles outdoors in the sun, and they still work perfectly.

Can this item be mounted on a brick wall?

I don't see why not. Just make sure to purchase extra heavy duty, long bolts to go into the brick wall.
