Hozelock Aquastorm 17 Oscillating Sprinkler 2974
Hozelock Aquastorm 17 Oscillating Sprinkler 2974
Price: £22.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Pity it didn't work for long., 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Vert smart - just like the old one that had broken down after many years hard work. Had this just a few days - about half a dozen watering sessions and then it stopped - oscillating I mean. Unbelievable!
Anyway all credit to Amazon - who would not replace - as if I would have wanted to! - but gave an instant refund and I have dropped the thing at the local 24 hour filling station that does the returns.
Amazon is truly amazing, especially when there is a problem.
I see from the reviews that others have had similar problems. I should have read the review before ordering of course.
Anyway I have an old spit and hiss that does quite well and as the season is nearly over, i'll leave it till next year but will ask Hozelock for a comment before buying another one of theirs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really brilliant, 10 Aug 2013

Problem - how to deter birds from flying into open doorway during hot weather. Solution - cheap and very cheerful indeed!
Splashes reflected sunshine al around the room too - like having a sea at your door.

5.0 out of 5 stars smart!, 12 July 2013

Excellent value - smart and hides hideous braces. Only one snag - the pockets are fake - pity because that's where your thumbs go.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ecellent clicker!, 25 May 2013
"Clicker" = a device that clocks. I think the origin might be in the leather working trade and the sound that of the device, knife or spike, as passes through the material to strike the anvil below. Anyway this is a nice little tool; very handy when adding a hole to a belt to make room for natural expansion or simply to start a small screw. Remember to drive it steaight in and don't wiggle it about; that would bend it and render it useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value but not exactly deafening, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap and cheerful no doubt but not really as loud as powered receivers. Hard of hearing I had to buy and extra headphone,
Unlike more expensive models, you cannot predial before lifting the hand set. Otherwise is has all the other features, preset numbers and redial facility that make modern phones more user friendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A necessity for radio keyboards and mice, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although some keyboards and mice turn off when not in use, eventually you need a new pair of batteries. Keep a pair on charge ready for immediate changeover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spread yourself, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just spread yourself around - this is a generous pad at a reasonable price. It seems durable and, unlike smaller versions does not curl up at the edges so easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars There need not be smoke, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is unusual in that it has a slight taper and is mounted on three feet thus ensuring stability. Don't expect it to last for ever. It would not break the bank to replace it after a couple of years. The lid with its chimney is needed only when there is a danger of fly ash and vent holes ensure that combustion is fast and furious with little smoke.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you are serious about cookery, you need one of these, 21 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cuisinart CBT700U Stainless Steel Jug Blender not cheap but a robust job. This is the last of four blenders that have failed one way or another. This has stood up to daily use without a hitch - except, and this is common with blenders of this kind, eventually it leaks through the bottom seal. At least one can replace the sealing ring without difficulty. Different programmes for different jobs - and an alarm to say when a programme is finished. Robust and easy to use.
