Don’t touch that dial: Rain Wand on ‘Home Factory’

June 12, 2015  By Dave Harrison

June 12, 2015, Manitowoc, WI — The Dramm Corporation, a family-owned manufacturer of high quality watering tools, is in the national spotlight for making an eye-catching product.

“Our Grandfather, John G. Dramm, a florist by trade, invented the Water Breaker in the early 1940s to provide an efficient and even flow of water for flower growers,” said Hans Dramm, third generation owner of the Dramm Corporation.

“This was the beginning of the Dramm Corporation and the foundation of the beautiful Rain Wands you will see highlighted in our Home Factory segment.”


Dramm’s Rain Wands allow you to apply large quantities of water quickly to the plant base, where it soaks deep into the soil. The 30″ ColorMark Rain Wand is equipped with a shut-off valve to reduce overall water consumption.

The Home Factory production crew shot a segment showing the process of making the 30″ ColorMark Rain Wand from start to finish.

“It’s going to be a very fun and educational feature. Viewers will see how we handcraft the 400 AL Water Breaker, how the colour is added to the Rain Wands, the components that go into each wand we make, as well as the extensive testing we do to insure they are durable,” said Dramm.


“The Canadian-based crew from Home Factory was great fun to work with and very professional to boot,” said Heidi Dramm Becker, third generation owner.

The segment will air on FYI Network’s Home Factory premiering on July 25 at 9:30 p.m. CST. Check the FYI Network website for repeat airings of the episode titled “Talking Trash.” (The episode was named for an additional segment featuring a garbage can manufacturer).

A two-minute sneak peak of the segment will be available on soon.
