Stuff We Love

The Family Handyman - - CONTENTS -

Well-de­signed wa­ter­ing tools, a por­ta­ble in­fla­tor, and a handy tool for pre­vent­ing drain clogs.

I’m not a huge fan of yard work, es­pe­cially wa­ter­ing grass and gar­dens. So I pay at­ten­tion to prod­ucts that make it eas­ier—and Gil­mour has come out with two prod­ucts that do just that.

The Cir­cu­lar Sprin­kler with Spike Base (No. 3203) has all the fea­tures you want and need, and its de­sign makes it in­tu­itive to op­er­ate. You sim­ply slide col­lars to ad­just the spray pat­tern or pull up the top for full-cir­cle wa­ter­ing. It has a sim­ple lever for ad­just­ing spray dis­tance and an on/off switch to min­i­mize back-and-forth trips to the spigot. Two sprin­klers can be linked in se­ries.

The Thumb Con­trol Wa­ter­ing Noz­zle with Swivel Con­nect (No. 4312) feels solid and has an easy-turn outer ring for ad­just­ing the spray pat­tern. The vol­ume is con­trolled by a slid­ing thumb lever—no squeez­ing or twisting to ad­just the wa­ter flow.

The hose con­nec­tion on both the sprin­kler and the noz­zle ro­tate in­de­pen­dently, min­i­miz­ing kinks and twists. They cost about $15 each. Learn more at gil­
