Great for trees and large shrubs
See it in action! Watch a video featuring this product to learn more.
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.

This is the main item I brought from my friend because it is so much more effective than spraying the surface and hoping the water will get down to the roots. This way you know it does.
I love the root waterer. No more water wasted on watering foliage or mulch.
The product works great. I'm very happy with it -thank you! My only slight annoyance is the the following regarding the product advertising. I am new to Hoselink and unfamiliar with the Hoselink exclusive connector system. When I read on the product page "The Hoselink Root Waterer & Soil Breaker attaches to your hose via the free Hoselink connector" that sounded like something that enabled me to connect it to my existing mainstream hose attachment straight away (like I could a standard spray gun) not that I also needed another part (now I know to be the Hoselink hose end connector OR acquire a standard 3/4″ (25mm) Bsp male thread hose adapter to fit my existing attachment) to do that. After reading your customer reviews and seeing the one from the person who believed the same as me and needed to wait until their next pension payment to get the hose end connector plus Hoselink's response, I worked out I could unscrew the 3/4″ (25mm) Bsp male thread bit from my mainstream spray gun. I would have bought the hose end connector in my original shipment had I known it was needed but i'm not prepared to pay for it plus shipping in a second shipment. My suggestion for the product page is to have a statement that clearly states that the order does not include a hose end connector and that the intended user will need to either have a Hoselink hose end connector to connect to the provided connector or a standard 3/4″ (25mm) Bsp male thread hose adapter to connect to existing standard hose attachments. I think it would really avoid customer confusion.
So far so good. Easy to put together and to use.
I bought this to replace a Gardena root waterer that broke as it had a top plastic handle. It had a strong aluminium shaft with a digging spike at the end with the water coming out the end sides. The hoselink one keeps blocking up as my soil is quite hard. The shaft has also slightly bent.
Th e water probe is truly amazing...just sorting out bamboo sticks to mark the hole for the probe..maybe you could market the medium sticks...for me cutting the sticks has been a challenge as I no longer live on a farm and hence no tools...not a major problem ...however the probe is fantastic and keeping me smiling during this awful time....many thanks.
It was a gift for my mum, she was so happy to receive it.
In looking for a root waterer, I found other vendors no longer offer such a tool. I have a number of Hoselink reels, connectors, etc. so it was an easy choice. It works well enough. I do find that I often have to change location to avoid small stones in the soil as it stops progression downward. Occasionally, I get a piece of mulch in the tube that can be tough to dislodge. Having said that, I have many shrubs and trees that appreciate the attention.
This is a great product for deep watering , and I’ve used it on all my trees. You have to be gentle when pushing the rod into the ground and move if you hit a rock or root , but it is easy to use. It might be the saviour of the trees and deep rooted shrubs in my garden in this hot summer
Fantastic, an extraordinary product. Works so well and saves so much water. Quality construction too.
