Normally, when you attach a hose to the spigot, you join the female end of the hose to the male opening of the spigot and screw the hose on with four or five twists of your fingers. Hose connectors simplify this task. There is a connector device already on the spigot and a connector device already on your hose. When you want to connect the hose, you simply push the hose up into the device on the spigot and the hose is attached, no leaking! These devices come in brass or plastic. They are very handy if you have a need to move a hose around from spigot to spigot. They also help in attaching or detaching a spinkling device from the end of the hose. They save time and scraped knuckles.

The nozzle is the device you put at the end of the hose to apply the water to your target in whatever form you desire. Nozzles can be adjusted to give a long course spray or a fine misting spray. Wands are not usually adjustable but offer excellent reach and easy application of water to containers, flower beds, and any other place where you want to get the water to a specific spot.

Spigot Extension Devices
What happens if your home has only one spigot for watering and it is located by the back door? That means you must either buy enough hose to reach around to the front yard, or you can by a spigot-extending device to make that switch a bit easier. There are a number of products on the market that allow you to set up a remote spigot in your yard. You will have to have a feeder line to that remote spigot, but for folks with a quarter of an acre or more, these devices deserve some review. Often the feeder line is buried under the sod. The other option of course is to hire the plumber to come and give you a spigot in the front of the house. The comparison in price between the device and the plumber is not worth even mentioning. Plumbers are expensive.
Hose guides are only important if you have a need to move your hose around the yard as you are taking care of your routine watering tasks. Hose guides are designed to solve that problem when you pull you hose to a new spot and inadvertently pull the hose right over the spouse’s favorite flower bed. Guides are placed in the ground at strategic spots to keep the hose from rolling over delicate areas such as the spouse’s favorite flower bed. Guides can be functional as well as decorative depending on how much money you want to spend. If you want to save some money, you can make perfectly effective hose guides with strong bamboo stakes or metal rods of some kind, driven into the ground at key spots in the yard.
Hose Storage Devices
Perhaps the most frustrating part of using a garden hose, not counting kinking, is finding a way to store it easily so it will be easy to use again next time. There are all manner of hose caddy designs on the market, and the problem is that you can’t usually test them until you buy them and bring them home.
The most important criteria in making your choice is buying a device that will hold the amount of hose you wish to store. Some devices store 50 feet while others hold 100 feet. That can be an important difference in your decision.
Hose storage can be some device attached to the wall that allows you to simply coil the hose on it until you need it again. Then we have the traveling devices on wheels that are designed to help you get your hose where you need it before unwinding it. This device assumes you have a number of faucets.
In the end, this tool becomes a personal choice. Our advice is to see how a particular storage device really works at a friends house, or in the store before you buy it.
