1Spray Away Elite II - Motion Activated Sprinkler - 2 Pack is rated out of 5 by 14.Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from My Dogs bark at the gate to my back yard I placed this right next to the gate, which my dogs would constantly bark when anyone waked by. The dogs no longer go near the gate. If they do on rare occasions, they immediately leave and quit barking.Date published: 2015-06-17Rated 4 out of 5 by option58 from Very effective The deer were a big problem before I bought the first sprinkler. But it was so effective, I bought two more for complete coverage because the deer were starting to figure out ways to get around them or eating unprotected plants.Date published: 2015-06-09Rated 4 out of 5 by Sentinal from Looks Ugly, Works Beautifully I have just had it for a week and find it very functional and easy to use. It saves me the bother and expense of fencing my vegetable garden. The only problem I encountered was getting sprayed when I walked into the garden while forgetting to turn it off first.Date published: 2015-05-24Rated 4 out of 5 by spkerer from They've worked for my pond. I have a smallish backyard done. A couple of years ago I got a single one of these motion activated sprinklers. It performed very well and I didn't lose any fish. Through my own fault, I knocked that one off the base I had it on while it was full and it cracked the base. That's completely understandable because it holds a good amount of water when full (that's good cause you don't have to refill it as often). Since I broke that one, I wanted to get a replacement and took advantage of their 2-pack deal. With two of these and the shape of my pond, I can aim the two of them such that the provide full coverage for the pond but don't "cover" the area where my patio is closest to the pond. The only reason I've given them 4 stars is that one of the two units was DOA. I spoke to customer support and have already sent it back via their return shipping. I expect that soon I'll receive a working replacement. Things like that happen, and as long as the replacement process is quick, I'd go back to 5 stars.Date published: 2015-05-20Rated 4 out of 5 by SaraNJ from Working well, but one drawback We ordered one Elite II Spray away, and liked it so much that we ordered a second unit. It has been working well to repel the herds of deer that frequent our backyard, and there has been no damage to the plants that are sprouting up this Spring. The only drawback to the unit is that it does not detect as far away as advertised. After many times attempting to reset the detection field, the units only detect as far away as 5 feet or less.Date published: 2015-04-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Faye from Deer Sprayer This product works very well. It is solar so no need for batteries. You just have to fill up the water container every so often. It detects deer from a good distance away and they leave my roses alone and I have had it turned off for a while now and they still don't come back. The ones hooked to the hose don't work. You just have to remember to turn them off if you have guests coming or UPS man etc.Date published: 2014-10-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Very Cool, Effective and Well Built What it does:The Havahart Spray Away Elite II is designed to scare off critters that come to eat your garden vegetables. It does this by spraying a jet of water to startle the creature. When a creature ventures into the field of view of Spray Aways sensor, it activates and fires a jet of water. The intensity is similar to a garden hose with a nozzle being turned on at about 75% of full blast for about 5 seconds. The water jet sweeps a few degrees and makes a startling noise. Spray Away does not directly target and shoot water at animals (unless it gets lucky). It detects heat and motion at a distance of 30 feet from the front of the unit. It covers a 180 degree angle. It can't detect animals coming from directly behind it. The solar powered battery can fire about 5 times a day. There's no need to hook up a hose like some other similar models. It has 2 led lights which flash when water is low or the charge is low. The LED lights are not bright, but are visible even in bright daylight. Maintenance is rather minimal, only requiring twice a week water fill up (but this depends on how many animals cross its path) and wiping the solar panel and detector surfaces clean. Fit and finish quality are high.Set-up:I found the set up very easy. You fill the tank with 3.5 gallons of water. Choose the sensitivity from a dial and turn the unit on. The sensitivity setting is not well defined in the instructions, but I assume it's based on the size of the animal you are attempting to deter. Strangely, instructions do not tell you exactly what a 'large' or 'small' animal is in terms of measurements. The higher the sensitivity setting the smaller the animal the unit will detect. A very high sensitivity may produce false activations. For example, a tree limb moving in the field of view or a butterfly might cause the unit to spray. Therefore, you may need to lower the sensitivity a bit or move the unit to a different location. I have mine set on 8 out of 9 to deter pesky rabbits. I have not experienced any false alarms. You can adjust the spray jet to travel about a maximum of 25 feet. The spray head also rotates during squirting so that the jet of water is always firing somewhere different. This keeps the unit from becoming predictable to animals and losing its effectiveness.Conclusion:My only major complaints are the instructions and the indicator lights. The manual says to set the sensitivity values based on "small", "medium" and "large". Large what? I assume animals? How big? Not sure. The indicator lights are positioned on the front of the unit. If you forget to turn off the unit and try to read the LED lights, you will get hit with a jet of cold water. Also, the top of the sprayer is a place where birds like to roost and, of course, poop. The poop lands on the solar panels. Hopefully, on the next re-design of this product, the Havahart engineers will make that roosting spot a little pointy so that birds will avoid sitting there.So far Spray-Away has been very effective. Rabbits devouring spinach and lettuce were our problem last season. I have not seen one rabbit (or any other varmint) in our 25' x 30' garden area since placing the unit on the perimeter. They actually seem to be avoiding the garden. We left some "bait lettuce" in the garden for a few days as a test and so far it is completely uneaten. I have had no problems with inadequate charging of the battery. It always seems ready to work.I think the Spray-Away is worth the extra expense. It's actually fun to use and is a much better alternative to applying chemical deterrents (especially in an edible garden). If you have a huge garden, you will probably need additional Spray Aways and of course, this could be costly. Also, if you expect many animals to be crossing through your garden, you may want to get the version with attached hose, as you don't want to have to fill up the unit with water constantly, but remember that animals will eventually learn to avoid the Spray Away's path and therefore, it should spray less and less.I highly recommend this product if you have a garden munching animal problem and a little extra money to spend.Date published: 2014-10-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Very efficient! So easy to use This is my third product from Havahart and I'm very happy with all of them. I have problems with stray cats, dogs, racoons, and possums. Havahart animal repellants take care of all of them, and without chemicals or anything dangerous.The Havahart Spray Away Elite II is very easy to use and really does the trick! The unit weighs 11 pounds empty, so it's easy to carry. I fill it with a bucket, since it's easier to carry a bucket of water than a full Spray Away unit. Once it's in place, it works very efficiently.The unit is solar powered, so I never have to worry about dead batteries. I love the eco-friendly aspect of it.We had a lot of fun testing it out! It detected our movement every time and gave us a quick blast of water. This will be perfect to put in the far corner of our vegetable garden this summer, where a water hose won't reach. We won't have to worry about stray animals messing up the garden.If you have a lot of animals to deter, you'll probably want to use the model that attaches to a water hose so you'll have continuous action. The Spray Away Elite works well with occasional problems, unless you want to fill it up every day.Date published: 2014-10-17
Does the unit need direct sunlight, or will the battery still charge on cloudy days?The unit will recharge best in direct sunlight.Date published: 2015-07-24
Can you adjust the time of spray duration?The distance can be adjusted to spray closer or farther from the unit, and the width of the arc can be adjusted as well. The duration of the spray is not adjustable.Date published: 2015-07-06
..can the sprayer be adjusted to a very narrow target width?The plastic tabs on the sprinkler head can be adjusted to contain the spray to a smaller area.Date published: 2015-07-08
Does existing plant height interfere with the equipment being able to see the bunnyFor best results, the unit should be positioned with the sensor eye clear of any plants or other items that will block it from being able to sense movement.Date published: 2015-06-05
Where is the best location for my Spray Away Elite II?You can place your Spray Away on any surface in the area you would like to protect. Face the sensor in the direction of the animal activity. Make sure that unit has enough exposure to sunlight.Date published: 2015-06-05
How many activations will I get from my Elite II with one basin-fill of water?One full basin of water will last up to 35 activations before needing a refill.Date published: 2015-06-05
How long does the solar-powered battery last on Elite II?If exposed to direct sunlight, Elite II’s solar panel will constantly be charging the unit, so you should rarely see the “Low Battery” light come on. If there is little sunlight or a very high volume of animal activity, you may experience a low battery. Without sunlight, a fully-charged Elite will last approximately 30 activations before needing re-charged.Date published: 2015-06-05
How do I test Spray Away Elite II without getting wet?Spray Away Elite II has two LED lights above the motion sensor eye, which illuminate when Spray Away detects movement. • With your water basin empty, stand in front of the Spray Away at the furthest distance you want to detect. (Max is 25 feet away from unit). • Wait 10 seconds (remain still as it calibrates). Spray Away does not sense for 10 seconds after an activation. This means when testing the coverage area you will need to wait (remain still) for 10 seconds before moving again. • Staying the same distance from the unit, walk back and forth to test if the unit can see you. The indicator Light will blink if it sees you. • If Spray Away does not see you, select the next highest sensitivity level (Higher number = higher sensitivity level). • Continue to select the next highest sensitivity level until the Spray Away sees you. Once it sees you, your desired coverage area has been set correctly.*Please note: When Elite II activates too many times in a row, it could drain the battery. Be sure not to activate it too many times when testing your sensitivity.Date published: 2015-06-05
