    Thumbs up

    Your tree funnel is a great idea, BUT someone beat ya to it and is making $$$ off of it. You can buy them at your local hardware store. I got one at Daman Hardware 3 years ago. BUT, it doesnt look like a candy cane...so yours is still better
    I'm a ghost...email me if you have any questions on my old setup

    FYI: I sold my 96 4Runner and bought a 1985

    Thats what I thought too, I remember seeing it as a project dating back in the early 80s. This one is just a generic plant waterer...well I guess you can use it on xmas tree too. The design is different but the idea is the same, Im sure someone must have sold it then.

    Good luck with it anyway

    When I was in the 6th grade I made these things out of PVC pipe and went around selling them to neighbors for 7 dollars. You can't really patent it and it is so simple to make. I am hoping that people will like the idea and then want to buy a Tree Green because that is a little more novel and goes along with the idea. I want to try to get the search engines to get the craft idea while pointing people to the tree green that they can buy...

    Soltronix is building 30,000 of them and I need to move them!

    Mine involves a length of hoes and a funnel the candy cane is nicer than mine however I just leave the funnel zip tied to the back of the tree so it doesn't matter. This year I have no space so I'll be doing an above head setup at my parents house. I'll get some pics if I ever Finnish.

    OK. In that case how about wiring that low level alarm up to a solenoid so that it dumps water down to the tree until it fills up. You could either use a hose (not in most homes but in my house) or a bucket that could be filled with say 2~3 gals of water.

    What do you guys think?
    We could always gust try and get a cute girl to bend over and water the tree that would be fun also.
