Product Info

New colour now available!

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 product comes with a Hoselink connector included for quick connection to your Hoselink-fitted garden hose.  If you are new to Hoselink then you will need to either convert your hose to Hoselink no-burst fittings (we recommend the Water Wise Starter Kit) or alternatively you can unscrew the Hoselink connector from this device and replace it with a standard click-on style male connector (please note we do not sell these).

Very handy

Yep, it does what is says in regard to deep watering, soil breaking etc but it’s also really handy for watering pot plants accurately with out spill, or in any location where you need a directly flow of water in a precise spot. The review comment that swung me into buying this product was from a lady who said it’s handy to fill up the chooks water bowl through the mesh. It’s just a really handy watering tool - you’ll find lots of uses for it in addition to deep watering.

unusual but very effective item

Just fantastic. In recent dry weather the ground (mainly clay) has split/cracked in various spots in the garden. This root waterer is fab...just push waterer into cracks (a few centimeters) & water till water overflow from cracks. Replace mulch.....watering done! Eventually cracks are closing back to normal. Well done Hoselink.

What an Amazing Device!

I bought this when I purchased some new sprinklers. It was spur of the moment, but I have loved everything I have bought from hoselink, so I thought why not? We are in the Wheatbelt of WA which is pretty temperate, but we have some long hot dry spells and a really gravelly soil. A couple of my citrus were not looking the best and I decided to try the deep watering unit on them. Best thing I ever did and the most handy item in my garden. I also use it to refill the chickens and aviary birds water as it slips through the mesh nicely and saves me opening doors and fending off birds. I'm eyeing off the pressure unit and the gutter cleaner now. Hoselink has made my life easier and my garden a more beautiful and easily managed space.

Root waterer/soil breaker

I have a patio with pot plants. I think this device is meant to use in a standing position, for gardens with large mature trees. I intend to take it to a metal worker and shorten it to make it more useful for me. My suggestion is that you offer it in two different lengths.

Root waterer

End got clogged with dirt



Hi Colleen, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Sorry to hear your root waterer has become blocked with dirt when using it. We would recommend removing the silver wand from the handle and then running some warm water through the shaft to dislodge anything caught inside. Kind regards, The Hoselink Team

Deep watering tool

Fantastic product easy to build fun to use we have passion fruit vines that have roots that go down 18 to 24 inches so no way my Reticulation can adequately meet their needs. But with thus amazing tool I can just insert it deep under the surface and give them a much needed drink every week.

Root waterer.

Once again, Hoselink has developed a superior product. Try this and you'll be just as impressed as I am. strong and reliable. It won't fall apart after a few uses. Ideal to get down through clay.
