Root Waterer & Soil Breaker
Great for trees and large shrubs
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 (we recommend the Quick-connect Garden Hose Fittings Set).

Works great! Exactly what I expected.
My Root Waterer and Soil Breaker is great! Sometimes takes a little effort to get it in the ground deep enough, but waters my new trees and shrubs at the rool level. My plants are healthier and happier!
Thanks for your review! Happy and healthy plants, that is what we are here for :)
This is a must have!
I tried this out on regular soil and pots, of which I have many. It’s very easy to use and lightweight. Concentrates the water exactly where u want it and I am sure it saves water. Pistol hand grip with a large plastic quick connect fitting, which really, really, really helps in quick change outs of different types of hose tools. Hoselink customer service has been great! Sure hope it stays that way! Would highly recommend for ppl who have back issues and can’t bend repeatedly, for those who want to save water and for those who like functionality and ease of use.
Thanks for the review. Sounds like you are getting some good use out of the root waterer!
The root waterer works if your soil is soft enough to penetrate but with my hard soil in So. California, I had to drive an old golf club shaft in the grass first then poke the root waterer down for it to work. Took some time but got a 20 sq. ft. area done in 25 minutes.
I just purchased a Hoselink system with a Root Waterer. I have only used the Root Waterer twice in the last month but have already noticed that most of the plants that I have watered with it are looking so much healthier and putting on new growth. This leads me to believe that the drip watering I have been using wasn't actually getting to the root zone. I am thrilled with the improvement on these plants in such a short time.
This attachment is absolutely fantastic! I’m short so I can use it standing up straight (5’2”). It help me conserve water because I can target where I’m watering. So great!!
It's been great to break through the surface crust to inject water down for a new transplanted fruit tree.
