    Lucy, I have one of these in my front yard! My company made the machine that currently makes these sprinklers at 130 parts per minute!!!! Tha machine works so efficiently that they shut down all their other machines and just use that one! Nice article! I have some of these that I will bring to the next meetup so you can plant one as well if you would like!
