Frequently Asked Questions
*Warning - Some of the competition uses words like "strong and durable" in describing their sprinkler donuts. The truth of the matter is many retailers don't ship them, they are in-store pick up only, even-though they ship other products. This is because they are so fragile, they often break in route when shipped. They also neglect to tell their buyers that their sprinkler donuts don't hold up well in states that have freezing conditions in Winter months. There's a variety of similar products found in big box stores and local hardware stores here in my home state of Florida, made of concrete or hard plastics. Keep in mind where you live when selecting a sprinkler guard or sprinkler donut unless your selecting the Sprinkler Buddy, made from a flexible (TP)Thermal Plastic, that has you covered with confidence no matter where you reside.
Q - Does the Sprinkler Buddy hold water?
A - The Sprinkler Buddy Does Not hold water, six pin size holes are created by installing the Sprinkler Buddy to your sprinkler head by the nature of how it installs. Allowing rain water etc... to seep out.
Q - UV stability, are they going to break down?
A - The Sprinkler Buddy is made with the highest UV protection package I could put in this material. It will hold up in All Weather Conditions for years to come.
Q - Can I install it without removing the sprinkler head?
A - It is easiest to install by removing the sprinkler head. While it is possible to install without removing the sprinkler head body/shaft, I do not recommend it.
Q - How does it keep the grass out?
A - The Patented insert design, combined with the shape and material used all play a part in keeping the grass from covering your sprinkler heads.The ability to custom fit this indicator to your specific sprinkler head body diameter prevents grass from growing between the indicator and sprinkler head itself. The 7" funnel like shape helps force growing grass away from its center. The material being light weight, flexible, and durable allows it to NOT sink in the ground, even when accidentally run over by tire, etc... it will rebound back to its original position. With minor maintenance one can keep their sprinkler heads visible to avoid accidental damage by mower tires, etc... for years to come.
Q - How many do I need?
A - Every yard and need will be different. If you want to keep those that get broken often visible to avoid future mishaps, just get that many. If you want to know where they all are get one buddy for each sprinkler. That's more a personal question for the user. Personally myself, I would just put them on those that tend to need replaced year after year or those you are having to constantly adjust because they are being hit or pushed out of their intended positioning by mower tires, etc... Those are the ones that lead me to think of this invention. "With a little help from Upstairs"
Q - Do they come in different colors?
A - At this time they only come in one color. If a certain color keeps being requested, RyRo, Inc. will come out with the most popular request in the future. (Florescent orange has come up a few times.)
