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).

Hi Juanita, thank you for review. Sorry to hear that is the case - definitely not a common problem. Was the ground hard/clay like? We would be more than happy to discuss options with you and hope to hear from you soon. Kind regards, The Hoselink Team

Collar did not fit

Unable to use, collar does not fit, expected a little more from a quality brand, surely you do some kind of test before packaging ready for sale?

Brilliant Watering Accessory

The root waterer and soil breaker is perfect for getting water under mulch and straight into the root system. Saves on water as there is little evaporation from the surface due to the water being applied under the mulch layer. My Lemon trees love it.
