The above contraption is what
you get when you combine a submersible pump with a sprinkler and a
timer and a large trash can filled with water and scented soap. The
finished product is what I'm calling the StinkMaster
smelly sprinkler experiment, and its purpose is to provide a means
as to which an area just outside of the garden can be subjected to
repeated sprayings of an unnatural scent.
It's too early to know how
effective it might be, but the area it sprayed last night is rather
stinky with the smell of Irish
My first observation is that
soapy water clogs sprinkler heads.
Maybe a liquid fabric softener
or concentrated perfume would be a better choice that would stink
enough without clogging the sprinkler mechanism? I even tried swapping
out the clogged sprinkler with the above hand held shower sprayer. It
managed to spray out most of the can last night, but I think the
clogged holes put a strain on the pump.
