What do you all use for a wand? Store bought or are you just throwing something together with copper and a valve?

    I have one that I made it’s basically just a 1/2 ball valve x hose adapter w a 1/2 male adapter x copper and then a female adp . I use a combination of lengths of 1/2 copper w male on one end and female on the other so I can adjust the length what size boiler and some times to the limited space . I have a bunch of spray ends that screw in easiest Is just a simple 1/2 elbow w the outlet end crimped to about 3/8 of a inch . Good luck clammy

    Thanks Clammy. Any chance you have some pictures so I can get an image in my head when I run over to plumbing supply tomorrow? Thanks!

    You can use 1/2" copper and smack it down with a hammer to make it spray. Make a straight one and one with a 90 degree elbow on it to get into tight spaces
