When entering the warmer months, the number one goal is to water smarter, not harder. What we mean by that is to find methods and approaches to watering that require less manual work and go a little easier on your water bill, all while keeping your plants well hydrated throughout the season. Get summer-ready with this round-up of Hoselink’s ultimate watering products.
Retractable Hose Reel
Starting with the best, there’s really no better way to water your garden than with a Hoselink Retractable Hose Reel. You won’t find a single gardener who enjoys the coiling, kinking mess that a standard garden hose presents during and after watering, and that’s where this tidy hose storage solution comes in. Thanks to the specially designed ‘stop-anywhere’ locking mechanism, you can walk the hose out and secure it at any length you desire, which eliminates excess hose to prevent kinks and tangles. Once you’ve finished watering, give the hose a light tug and you’ll engage the automatic rewind system and the integrated self-layering mechanism which, combined together, allow the hose to neatly coil within its shell as you walk it back. By the way, did we mention that the Hose Reel comes fully equipped with a set of pre-fitted no-burst connectors and a Comfort 8-Pattern Flow Control Sprayer? They’ll let you get watering straight away and even switch between your watering accessories if need be.
But it doesn’t end there... the Retractable Hose Reel’s integrated carry handles also make it a portable solution for a larger yard, allowing you to easily test out different locations or dislodge and transport for your own needs. It’s even furnished with UV-stabilised casing, which increases its durability and allows it to handle any tough weather conditions that Mother Nature throws its way. With two colours and three sizes to choose from, you can completely customise your watering experience without compromising size or style! You’re in for a real treat with Hoselink’s Retractable Hose Reel.
Superflex Garden Hose
When it’s all said and done, Retractable Hose Reels aren’t for everyone, and some gardeners may just want a standard hose that works the way they’re used to without any technical features. With that being the case, we’ve ensured that our regular 20m & 30m Superflex Garden Hose is kink resistant and as durable as can be!
Specially designed with strength and durability in mind, the Superflex Garden Hose is best characterised by its three-layer material knit and ‘thick wall’ design that eliminates the kinks and twists more prevalent in thinner hoses. Thanks to its high-quality assembly, which has yielded it an official kink-resistance rating of 9/10, the Superflex Garden Hose is designed to make manual watering as seamless as possible for many years after purchase.
The Superflex Hose has been pressure tested to 500psi (pounds per square inch), meaning you won’t have to worry about it tearing or breaking under high water pressure. On top of that, it's thicker construction and high abrasion resistance also protects the hose’s outer casing from the damage caused by dirt, debris or rubble hitting or sticking on to your hose.
Like the Retractable Hose Reel, the Superflex Garden Hose has been designed to retain its structure through Australia’s most brutal weather conditions, with the hose being suitable for climates ranging between -5°C to 50°C, with UV stabilised material used to prevent damage specifically from the harsh Australian sun. The Superflex Hose provides a dependable watering solution that will remain flexible across all seasons.
Compact Nozzle Starter Kit
Every great hero needs a sidekick and the Compact Nozzle Starter Kit acts as the perfect Starter Kit to accompany your brand new hose. The kit includes:
One of the more mystifying parts of purchasing a hose can be working out what fittings you need to get started, and that’s why we designed a kit with EVERYTHING you’ll need to start watering right away. The kit also includes our new and improved Accessory Connector with built-in swivel function, allowing you to turn your spray gun without tangling your hose. Every hose fitting is designed to never leak or burst off your hose too.
The ergonomically designed ‘point and twist’ fittings make it easy to attach or switch connectors with ease, no matter what your age, strength or gardening nous. To keep it super simple, the face of each fitting has been specially designed to look the same, meaning each and every component of Hoselink’s hose fitting ecosystem is 100% interchangeable. You can connect taps to hoses, hoses to accessories, and even hoses to other hoses without worrying about needing extras or spares.
Sprinklers; they’re one of the few ways to water without doing any work at all, and this one allows you to do just that and more! Taking all the manual work away, Hoselink’s Oscillating Sprinkler has been specifically designed for watering large portions of your lawn or garden beds, even if you suffer from low water pressure.
The Oscillating Sprinkler delivers a rectangular spray coverage that can water an area of up to 15m x 12m and offers a wide range of adjustable settings, allowing you to customise the saturation level and variety of spray pattern. The flexibility and reach of the Oscillating Sprinkler’s coverage mean that those spots that would normally be hard or awkward to reach with a hose can be watered with minimal effort.
Constructed from metal, you won’t need to worry about the Oscillating Sprinkler tipping or blowing away with its sturdy and stable structure allowing you to relax indoors or by the pool without having to check on it. It even features a built-in cleaner and protective mesh filter that catches any dirt or debris and prevents it from damaging the sprinkler. This sprinkler also comes pre-fitted with a Hoselink Accessory Connector (12mm), streamlining your tap to hose and hose to sprinkler connection.
Sticking with sprinklers, Hoselink’s 9-Pattern Sprinkler distinguishes itself by offering 9 different spray patterns – the most customisable watering tool in our range!
Not only is the 9-Pattern Sprinkler great for watering oddly shaped gardens and getting into all the nooks and crannies, but in the process, you’ll save water as it only waters where you want it to, something that can be hard to achieve with high water pressure and movement across the yard.
The sprinkler is also extremely easy to use! Simply turn the dial on top and align it with your desired spray setting for a watering experience that matches coverage with garden type. Its solid metal base also ensures it remains stable while in use.
Total Misting Package (Kit + Timer)
Hoselink’s Total Misting Package is the ideal all-in-one water cooling solution for your patio, balcony, terrace or greenhouse. The mister works to emit a fine spray that delivers a cooling, dampening effect across any desired spot within your outdoor space and also serves as a cooler for pets and their kennels or places of rest throughout spring and summer. The best part is that, with the included misting timer, you can control the frequency and rate in which the mist is released.
You might be thinking that with all the different components, you’ll be restricted in where you can set up, if at all. But the Misting Kit can be secured to walls, beams or underneath your roofing using the hanging snap clips provided.
Did we mention that this kit comes with a specialised misting timer too? The timer works in five-second intervals and offers multiple frequency options for controlling the spray.
Shower Spray Wand
Hoselink's Shower Spray Wand makes watering in those higher, hard-to-reach spots a breeze. Perfect for hanging plants, the wand’s uniquely designed metal shower head extends up to 50cm, meaning you’ll have extra reach to direct water to where it’s most needed.
Its quality lightweight construction and soft grip rubber handle, make it comfortable to hold and easy to use for long periods of time without sore hands. What’s also great about the wand is that the on/off flow control lever offers total command over the power of your spray with one simple push of the thumb.
Constructed from aluminium and with a high resistance to corrosion, the wand can remain protected and rust-free for years on end. You won’t have to worry about dirt or muck gathering in the wand either, as the attachable shower head can be removed so that the small holes in the spray mesh can be cleaned.
8 Pattern Spray Wand
The Hoselink 8-Pattern Spray Wand offers the best of both worlds combining a multi-function sprayer with a variety of settings that allow you to customise your watering and long length to reach those inconvenient spots.
Built with a 270-degree pivot head for a top to bottom watering experience, the water can even be turned on or off through the twist mechanism at the handle.
The wand also comes pre-fitted with a Hoselink Accessory Connector, so you can hook it straight up to your Hoselink Hose without a fuss!
Brass High Pressure Jet Nozzle
If you’re after a sprayer that’s got a bit more power behind it, then this is the one for you! The Brass High Pressure Jet Nozzle was custom made for jobs that require extra pressure like washing the car, cleaning pavers or blasting off mud and other hard-to-clean stains from surfaces like brick and concrete.
With a spray that can reach a distance of up to eight metres, those pesky muck and grime stains won’t stand a chance! The power is all in your hands.
Simply twist the head and when completely open you’ll find that it projects a strong, powerful jet spray, but can also be twisted to produce a strong mist.
Fertiliser Spray Mixer
Hoselink’s Fertiliser Spray Mixer allows you to reap the benefits of a Hoselink-Fitted Hose and the no-burst, no-leak fittings that go along with it, all while dispensing your liquid fertiliser cleanly and perfectly concentrated. That’s right, Hoselink even has a role to play during your plant’s meal time!
You’ll notice that on the top of the sprayer, a selecter dial can be set by the user to determine any measured amount of fertiliser to be pulled up from the spray bottle and mixed with the water flowing through from the sprayer (don’t worry, dilution rates are printed on each bottle of Hoselink Fertiliser for your convenience). With this system, fertiliser is distributed evenly and accurately. In fact, it’s so easy to use, even the trigger won’t tire arthritic muscles and joints like a traditional pump bottle would.
This product is suitable for use with Hoselink fertilisers, which include:
3-Day Green Lawn Fertiliser Concentrate
Organic Plant-health Seaweed Tonic Concentrate
Super-grow Garden Fertiliser Concentrate
- Organic Soil Wetter Concentrate
You’ll also want to clean the bottle regularly to avoid any residue build up. Simply fill your bottle with water, set the dial to 10 and spray until empty. This will prevent the contamination of different fertilisers or cleaning products you may use.
