    iwanttoknow - I tried using my garden pump sprayer and ran into the same problem you mentioned. I didn't think about removing the tip! A sprayer would be the ideal way to go about it since you can control the water flow through the wand. Thanks for the info!

    UberMensch and Ckbrew - If I would have seen this a few years ago when I first started to grow, I would have most definitely made one for my use. I have used several different methods of reaching the plants farthest to the back, including a long funnel from the auto parts store. Just prior to the current grow I did see a very helpful advise of using a small pump type sprayer, typically used for spraying bugs and weeds outdoors. I did remove the small misting tip as the watering process was just too slow, I now get a nice smooth stream of water from the 1/4" or so wand of the pump sprayer.

    Ckbrew - I put the cap on because I felt it would diffuse the water flow helping the water absorb better into the grow medium. I tried it out today while the plants are outside the tent and I think it is going to work nicely. Thanks again.

    I thought of the cap with holes in it. Tried it with out and never needed it.

    More simple tips.

    I put together this tool for reaching into the rear of the grow tent to water plants, based on a chat with Ckbrew. It cost near nothing since I already had the 1 1/2" PVC laying around the house. It doesn't leak a drop, even though the joints are not cemented. That will allow me to shorten it later should I decide to do so.
