Can anyone suggest how I can loosen the hose front he wand sprayer? I forgot to take it off during the winter, as our winters's are always freezing, I would use it now and then to water plants. However, this one doesn't want to come loose.

    I just had to use wrench to undo mine.

    Thank you DeMarie, I'll try it and hope I have enough strength to loosen it. -)

    Try hot or warm water on it or spray it with a little WD40 oil before using a spanner or wrench??

    Vise grips and pliers. Lubricant helps.

    liquid wrench
  • I would say WD-40 and a couple of wrenches. Before putting them back together, wrap the male end with a bit of teflon tape. This way, it will be easier to take apart!

    Pliers work for me

    Looks like the plastic is smooth. Wrench will not grip. If soaked on boiling water didn't work sounds like a hammer will have to come into play. Make sure to lube the hose end when you put new sprayer on.

    Liquid Wrench. Follow the directions on the spray can to leave it on for awhile before trying to take it off. Sometimes I apply it twice first. Use two wrenches and keep them on the medal part of the hose. Just keep working with it, it will eventually unscrew.

    Same thing happened to us. My husband used a product called Pb, available at auto part stores or even Walmart. Apply, let it sit for a while to penetrate and use two pliers to unscrew. Good luck

    If all else fails, cut the hose and attach a new end!!! (I don't think it will come to that!) :)

      @Anna Ibarra i'd cut the hose just a tad from the nozzle.. a replacement end is at the most a couple of dollars..if that.Be alot easier than buying some other things that was said.

    Ok thank you all, lets see what happens when I try one or all suggestions. Will get back. Wish me luck.

    Two channel locks used in opposite directions should get it off.

    Soak the connection in either viniger or coke for 24 hours to loosen the thread

    Just wanted to say, that I got the hose loosen and unscrew the sprayer wand. yippee! Thank so much. I did the hot water & lubricated it, then I use the wrench to unscrew it. Came right off. Not sure even if I need to use hot water, i'm wandering if just using WD40 would have been enough. I also lube both parts and added the tape before I put wand back on. Again, thank you all, and Hometalk. :-)

    brake fluid also does the trick on any nuts, screws or connections

    POUR OWER PEPSI COLA
    • Capernius Capernius on Jan 26, 2016
      @Basia Not Pepsi, Coca-Cola. the acid in the coke is stronger than pepsi. pepsi will not remove the corrosion from a car battery, Coke will. so if Coke will do that, it should help to loosen the connection.

  • Debbie Machmer Debbie Machmer on Apr 19, 2014
    this happened to me a year or two ago. cut the hose, put on new connectors and will not forget to take the sprayer off ever again!
  • Capernius Capernius on Jan 26, 2016
    Lady Anna, to keep this from happening again, go to an auto supply store & buy a tube of "anti seize". what this does is, it creates a barrier that allows for a good solid connection(meaning it won't leak) yet it also will not let this happen again. If you buy the expensive brand, it will set you back about $5 - $6. cheaper brand = cheaper price but just as good as the expensive brand.
