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 included 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 Male Hose Connector 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) or you can unscrew the provided connector and attach the Root Waterer directly to your existing hose using the standard threaded end.

This was a bit of a surprise as I believed I had ordered something else and yet found it useful the first day out of the box!

Buy it! Root Waterer

This root waterer gets down to business! I felt like I was wasting time watering the mulch around my newly planted greem giant arrbs. This tool is a dream come true. Stick it down into the soil at the rootball and pull the trigger. No run-off of wasted water.. The water goes directly where its needed. I swear I can see and hear my hot, thirsty trees slurping up the water. It's very satisfying.

I don’t top water plants or shrubs.
The route waterer is perfect. It can be used in so many different ways.
I have always wish that one of the settings on the hose
spray gun was just a normal stream of water and now we’ve got it. Thank you.

Michele Stark
great accessory to have

Sturdy and great hose accessory makes it so one doesn't have to stoop over to water and avoid getting the plant wet. Though a star off because when not in use it is awkward to store too bad it doesn't come with a holster.

Great Company

I love my root waterer/soil breaker as well as my retractable hose reel. They are great quality and shipping was really fast. My root wand was initially bent in shipping and they replaced it immediately after I notified them about it.

This works better than I expected

Root Waterer

I purchased the root waterer to use to water bushes, etc. I don't think I focused at all on the 'soil breaker' part of this. But OH BOY is this awesome for weeding out those long tap rooted weeds that are 10+ years old! We've save a ton of $$ in chiropractic bills! I'm working now on finding a gentle way to use the waterer that will make my tomatoes happy without disturbing the roots. Pretty sure it's possible and now that our dry summer PNW weather has set in, I'm identifying a bunch of applications... hydrangeas, viburnum, dahlias, roses, etc.

Not strong enough water pressure

I don't have a problem with sprinklers or any other products but the dribbling of the water out the root waterer isn't enough.
