One of our technicians managed to bend this wand...I don’t know if he ran it over or if the dehumidifiers weren’t strapped down in the box truck and crushed the wand. Is it worth trying to fix or should I buy a new one? How should I go about fixing it?

You could heat it up, and lightly bend it (semi) back.

You can cut the bent part out and head over to a hardware store/ plumbing supply then tap plastics.

Buy a section of poly carbonate 1 1/2 tube, and some fernco couplings and youll have an awesome wand with sight tube.
