An environmentally friendly way to water large trees and shrubs by delivering water directly to their roots underground.
The Hoselink Root Waterer & Soil Breaker attaches to your hose via the free Hoselink connector. As you start to depress the pole into the ground, press the trigger to release water. This will help the pole easily go into the ground to water roots.
By watering the roots of plants, you'll avoid wasting water through evaporation and ensure water is delivered directly to the roots.
You can also use this method to break up hard soil, making the removal of weeds or plants much easier.
The Root Water & Soil Breaker comes pre-fitted with a Hoselink Accessory Connector (12mm) for a quick and easy connection to your Hoselink fitted hose.
Special mention: We'd like to thank James Watkins for inventing this product.

A wonderful piece of garden equipment
By: Tom Bradley Verified Buyer
I have been using my Deep Water and Soil Breaker for a couple of years mainly establishing my lawn that I started with runners. I have plenty of water from our own underground supply. Some areas of clay soil were a little higher than others and I found that those areas lacking in moisture when using my sprinklers because of run off. I experimented with the Deep Water tool placing a number of watering holes on the high area. Problem fixed, after a short time I was able to just use the sprinkler, the water was not running off the high areas but down the holes that I had created. But another use that I have proven so great is the watering of small and large trees. I have a council park at my back fence with some well matured trees of about a third grown but struggling for water. I have also been planting some Queensland Bottle trees, here again absolutely wonderful. With the established trees first I developed about six holes about a meter from the trunks, those holes are now the full depth of the Deep Water device, approximately one meter deep, It is a hard mix of clay silt and black soil, dumped by council over about fifty years By the third watering the holes had reached the full depth of the tool, just with a little gentle movement of the handle of the device, but no real pressure. I also have found that if you start a new hole by 20 cm and just leave the water turned on when you come back in twenty minutes the probe will have found its way down to full depth, with very little water on the surface around the tree. Most of the trees now can be watered from one or two holes as the water has now found it way to all holes around individual trees. We have experienced weeks of 40 degree heat wave conditions and all small and large trees are responding so well. I water them once a week and have mulched them well, this also covers any of the holes and prevents the loss of moisture. A wonderful, wonderful Tool.

Can't do without it!!
By: Rachel Verified Buyer
This is the best for hot weather watering as it gets water straight to the roots of the plants - I already notice a difference with the vitality of my hydrangeas. Thanks!!

What a product!
By: Mark Di Fiore Verified Buyer
I have been looking for something like this for years! I live in an area with poor soil quality and the water never quite gets to the roots with a traditional trigger sprayer. This enables you to get to the roots of the plants but is also very sturdy and has no leaks. It's that good that I have purchased a second for my place and also one for my father. Highly recommend!

Amazing Garden Product
By: Patricia Elson Verified Buyer
I purchased the Root Waterer and Soil Breaker for my Husband. Mainly to save his back from more pain. Well my Husband is over the moon with this. He calls it his miracle machine. Other comments are FABULOUS/SO EASY TO USE/HAS NEVER EVER SEEN ANY GARDEN IMPLEMENT LIKE THIS IN HIS WHOLE 70 + YEARS. He even takes friends into the garden to show off his new toy. Thankyou Hoselink for developing a garden implement that disabled people can use without any worry of injury

I use this product for Garden Beds and Large Pot Plants. It gets the water down at the roots instead of sitting on top of the soil and soaking down. Definitely saves on water through lower evaporation. I was concerned about the strength of the product. Once opened I knew this was not going to be a problem - sturdy and well made.
One word of caution - make sure the holes at the bottom are at least 1" down before turning water on to avoid soil being sprayed everywhere in a muddy mess. I wasn't looking at what I was doing - I'll blame the dog for distracting me.

Root waterer and soil breaker review
By: Darren George Verified Buyer
I don't know about being a 'soil breaker' but as a root waterer, it is fantastic, so good I bought a second one for my daughter for Xmas. In my clay-plagued area, my plants need all the help they can get in dry times and I need this watering tool to force the water into the roots and pass the hydrophobic barrier that dry weather creates. The waterer leaves holes so you can use your hose the next few times until the holes need re-establishment. It is so good, one would need to be careful to not water too close to the actual root ball. Thanks all and I don't know why there isn't more of this kind of product around in these hot dry times.
