Havahart Spray Away Elite II Review
The Spray Away Elite II is only one of two hose-free solutions available for motion sensor sprinklers. The other one is the Guardener A 201 Animal Repellant. They are similarly priced, but the Guardener only received 3/5 stars on Amazon with numerous complaints about the quality of construction and lack of customer service from the manufacturer. Havahart on the other hand has 3.5/5 stars from 111 reviews, and responses from the manufacturer on complaints! They even re-shipped and reimbursed customers for malfunctioning units.
In short, if you need a hose-free solution to your critter woes, the Havahart Spray Away Elite II is the way to go.
The unit holds a total of 3.5 gallons. You get a total of 35 sprays per fill. For infrequent sprays, you can probably get about 5 days of use. One user reported that on a windy day, which can cause leaves to activate the sensor, you may have to fill it daily. It will really depend on your home and number of unwanted animals you need to keep out of your garden or yard.
One other thing to consider is that this is a solar powered sprinkler. The upside to this is that you don’t need to install or replace batteries, and can basically put it anywhere in the yard, regardless of distance from the hose. The downside is that it needs to be a sunny place.
