Heavy duty watering wand
« on: February 28, 2018, 09:02:54 PM »
Iím tired of buying a new watering wand every few months. Either the fittings break or start leaking soaking my shoes. I have a graveyard of wands. Anyone have a recommendation for a wand with preferably all brass fittings?  The box stores and local nurseries sell the same junk.

loupgarou,

I went to Google and searched for commercial grade watering wands and found several wands. Brass fittings or aluminum. Haws makes one but I am not sure what your intended use will be. If you are watering plants on shelves you may need only need a 24" wand. If you are watering rows, you may want a 36" wand. They are out there and most I saw looked to be around $75. Best of luck to you.

I found this one at Tractor Supply for $19. Not the most ergonomic, but the only plastic is the handle.

Build one, use a 3' piece of pipe, ball valve, shower head and a couple of fittings. Might not be the "cheapest" but will be the last one you'll need.
