M16847 - Water in Motion Decorative Copper Finish GardenSprinkler
I love this sprinkler
Please bring this back, I want another one, also one for my neighbor.
I use it on my front lawn, and people have stopped in their cars and stared, and it does a good job watering my lawn, it is so decorative, I just love it, it's unique, so many people have asked me where did I get it.
Looks great in the garden and works wonderful!!
I purchased 2 of these sprinklers and they both work great had them for almost 2 years now and never had any issues. Copper finish still looks brand new. I live in New England so I do stow away in the winter months in my shed. I can't say enough about the beauty and the water show when you turn it on. Works great and looks great even when it is not on!!!!
Better than the other
This sprinkler works great. My yard is not huge but not small either. My neighbors even asked for me to turn it on. Its nice to watch, the kids love to run through it and it spreads a great distance. The new one online now is another version. I ordered it because this one was is no longer available, thinking it would do just as well. To my surprise.........Yes the new one looks good but doesn't reach as far as this one. I am not happy with it (the one with the gazing ball). Could be the one I have is defective, I don't know. I do know I would much rather have this one for my back yard. I rather have the item that works good, not the one that looks good.
I bought this 2 years ago for me works and is pretty. The only reason I give it 4 not 5 stars is that my spray is only about 12 feet not 30 like they said and we have great water pressure. This is its 3rd year in the CT garden and it hasn't lost its copper color like others although I bring it in for the winter. And I'm one of the lucky ones as mine doesn't wobble or have spike problems. I think with these sprinklers after reading reviews you have a 50/50 chance of getting a good or bad one. I bought a different pattern copper sprinkler off QVC last year since I was pleased with this one and no matter what I did the inner or outer circles never moved but i tried it after my 30 days so was unable to return the other one.
Works for me
Despite low water pressure I find the sprinkler a welcome addition. I have a small yard in the back of my house and I can move the sprinkler in many positions to reach everything easily. Yes it is made of aluminum. Yes copper paint is available at big box stores if needed. Be glad you have adequate pressure and if you have problems keeping the sprinkler in the ground, bend coat hangers and put them over the legs for additional strength.
I love the way it looks but thats it. It broke after a week.
I was surprised by all the negative reviews on this. I have had my sprinkler for over 2 years and it is just as beautiful and works just like the day I got it. I leave mine out all year. Even the mega snow we had in VA this year did not affect it. I think that one must put it on level ground, make sure the bolts are very tight and adjust your water pressure. If the water pressure is too high it will wobble. Just turn the hose down a little and wow what a pretty display. I too use well water so my water pressure will fluctuate..ex. when the pump is on the water pressure will spike and there will be greater spray as opposed to when the pump is off and the pressure is lower with less spray. I adjust for the lower pressure and leave it be and it works just fine. I also run about 100 ft of standard 5/8" hose to it. One should also note that length of hose and diameter of the hose will affect water pressure. So you may need to adjust accordingly. I use it more for decorative purposes than to water my garden. Oh and the birdies love when the spinkler is on low. They just flock in and out of the spray and just chirp away! This is one of my better purchases from QVC.
Beautiful....but cheaply made!
As other reviewers have posted, this sprinkler looks wonderful....unfortunately, it just doesn't hold up. We had ours about 2 1/2 months before the welds came apart. The sprinkler is now in a landfill.
I purchased mine over a year ago and have had many hours of enjoyment watching this sprinkler in my front yard and many times have had neighbors/passers-by stop to comment on how delighful it is to watch. Came back to purchse one for my dad and saw the recent poor reviews. I'm sorry- but I disagree. i have never had any mechanical problems. Went together and stays together perfectly. As I said, it's enjoyable to watch. And more effective as an actual sprinkler than I had anticipated.
HORRIBLE! FELL APART!
My grandmother bought this sprinkler in the spring of 09 in hopes that it would make her struggles of watering plants go away.
needless to say it just made it harder!
The welding of the sprinkler came undone completely within 2 weeks of buying it.
She was not hard on the sprinkler and used it as it was shown to be used.
She thought that it would look pretty in her yard but jsut became a complete mess.
I would not recommend this to anyone! Unlike other products from QVC that i have been statisfied with, this was not one of them.
Once again, going back!
I loved the look and idea of this sprinkler/sculpture so much, that I tried it again 2 years after my first time purchasing it. I thought after two years that they may have improved on it. The very first time I turned the water on, the copper tubing and sphere shot up in the air, leaving the prongs in the lawn attached to the hose. Very disappointed, because it's quite nice to look at when it works on TV. I'm surprised it's still being sold, having not been improved upon. Thank you to QVC and their return policy though. They took it back again.
Beautiful but flimsy
I purchased my 1st one earlier this summer and used it a few times before the midsection broke apart. My husband put a band on it to secure it but I must say it broke easy. They are beautiful to look at and even more amazing when they are working... everyone enjoys watching it. If you put it into the ground DEEP so it doesn't wabble and don't keep moving it around ~ I think you would love it. Don't try to pull it by the center bar and secure deeply into the ground. Sorry QVC ~ make it stronger and I'd give it 5 stars.
