I was given a tool yesterday that drills a hole for you, with water! I couldn't believe it until I tried it!

It is just a pipe, threaded at both ends. One end has a connection for a hose. You attach hose, put the other end on the ground, and it begins drilling a hole! Caution, it will kick spatter out mud at first, so dress with that in mind! LOL.

I do not know if one can do it for larger holes. I have to do most the work related to my horse habit, so it saves me hiring someone to pound in T-posts. Just thought I'd pass it on.

What is the name of this tool? How deep of a hole does it dig? How wide?

Honestly, I don't know a lot about them. It is a very common tool, but I'm sorry, I don't know what it is called. If you describe it, I am sure someone at a hardware store, will know what you are talking about.

Any small steel pipe that is threaded on both ends will work. You just need to have a connection for the hose to screw onto, at one end. In other words, the hose does not become a permanent part of the pipe.

The one I have is about 1 inch in diameter. I don't know if they make them larger-my guess is, with a larger diameter, there would not be enough pressure to "drill," the hole. The pipe is about three feet long. I don't know exactly how deep it will drill. I believe a foot or more.

I'm going to play around with it later today and will let you know my results.

Ah, I was interested because I am running approximately 1,400 linear feet of new fencing this week (remember my crazy neighbors? Well, they are the reason. I don't want to EVER have to see, hear, or deal with those people again!).

But anyhow, I was interested because I have the good ole clamshell diggers and post pounder in my arsenal. UGH!

Sounds like a good plan. I'm sorry you have to be subjected to such obnoxious people.

I am planning to go out and pound in a fence post or see if I can, after drilling the hole with this thing. However, I'm a bit on the sleepy side right now! Have been busy all day, then relaxed and ate and now all I want is a nap! LOL

I had to put up a section of chain link fence for my mother, so I put the hose down the center of the pipe post and pushed them in to the ground. They were pretty tight in the ground. Now if I can get my mother to driver her golf cart and trailer through the center of the gate opening life will be wonderful.

I never thought of trying if with a wood post, would it work with wood post about 4" in diameter?

When I was 4 yrs old I was playing with a hose, drilling it into the ground. I just kept pushing it in to the ground further and further it was so easy. When it was about 20 feet in the ground I got busted, the neighbor turned the water off, told my mom, got yelled at. But it was worth it, watching the adults pull for all it was worth on that hose. They ended up cutting the hose off at ground level, they didn't have the sense to turn the water back on and ease the hose out.

Spring loaded? Cool!

Heather, I enjoyed your story. 20 feet down? Amazing!

I didn't get time to drill my bigger hole Catherine. Sorry. Probably will get it done tomorrow and will let you know.

I hope you are finding this tool without a name! I found out it is used to "drill" holes under concrete.

I used it in dry, clay soil and it worked great! I put in 2" pipe and so made a few little holes into a big hole. Loved it! You have to be patieint though. Don't need to apply a lot if pressure at all. It WILL give and you will have your hole. And it will continue to get deeper if you let it. Hope this helps.
