Upon opening it, I was surprised to find that the reservoir is a red brick pattern, not the solid green currently shown on the item page. I think I would have preferred the green, but I can live with the brick.
Keep in mind that you need to supply your own two-liter bottle with this thing. You only get the reservoir and the tubing.
The first time I put a bottle of water on the reservoir, about two cups of water came rushing up around the bottle and splashed everywhere. The second time I was a lot more careful, but it still did it. I tried inverting the empty reservoir onto the upright bottle and turning them over together, but water still rushes out. This problem has been mentioned in a few reviews, so I know I'm not the only one who has this problem. But the majority of people say nothing about it, so I have to assume that it's not an issue for most people.
I used to load 60-pound 5-gallon glass water jugs onto coolers without spilling a drop, so I'm perplexed as to why I can't pull this off. I've tried over and over again. Why does the water initially rush out of this thing? It's a mystery. Maybe my bottle is too squishy and I inadvertently compress it a bit as I'm placing it. It tends to suck in and collapse quite a bit as it drains throughout the day (rather than drawing in air), so maybe that's a clue. In any case, for these reasons, I wish this setup just came with its own rigid bottle, maybe one a bit bigger than two liters.
For now, I'm getting around the problem by putting my whole rig into a large container before upending the bottle so that the overflow goes in there. This is a hassle, but it works. After that one big whoosh, everything is fine and the tree is very effectively watered.
A built-in overflow tray would have been nice (this would also relieve my fear that the hose is going to leak where it joins the reservoir, as some people have experienced). I also really wish it came with a longer hose. By the time you curl ten inches of the hose around the bottom of the tree stand (as directed) and go up the stand and down the outside, you don't have a lot of hose leftover for locating the waterer out of the way.
When the bottle is full, the whole contraption is still stable (in that it's not going to fall over by itself), but it's very tippable, so make sure you put it in a place where it won't get jostled (especially if you have animals or little kids).
Overall, I'm glad we have this device, and despite the hassles, it DOES make it much, much easier to water the tree. I think there are several design flaws and places where it could be improved, but I haven't been able to locate a better product (short of rigging up my own siphon device, which I might eventually do).
If you're going to have a live tree (and don't want to build your own siphon), I recommend that you get this product.
