The Dynatrap ® 1250 Insect Eliminator lets you take back your yard without the need for added chemicals, pesticides, refills, and no zapping or buzzing. Odor-free and safe inside and out, this insect trap is engineered for 3-way protection against mosquitoes and other flying insects. First, a UV fluorescent bulb generates a warm light, attracting insects. Then a second lure, an exclusive Ti02 titanium dioxide-coated surface, produces CO2 that's irresistible to mosquitoes – enticing them nearer. Third, a powerful yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan sucks insects into a retaining cage where they will dehydrate and die (usually within 24 hours). Safely eliminates mosquitoes and nuisance insects, including moths , in a half-acre area Effective against the aggressive Asian Tiger, Giant Gallinipper, Culex and Rock Pool species of mosquitoes; view West Nile Virus map Quietly works without added chemicals or pesticides Includes one replaceable UV light bulb (approx. 3,000 hours life expectancy) Metal stand, wall-mounting bracket, and cleaning brush included Use the large capacity net (sold separately) instead of the included retaining cage for high volume insect control Learn how it works Read our Dynatrap FAQ 10-ft. cord NOTE: We recommend that placement of the Dynatrap unit be made as early in the warm weather season as possible to ensure a more effective control and elimination of mosquitoes.

I used my hose for the first time today, and I cannot ge it to retract. What do I do?

That is very bizarre. I have never had a problem! Were you careful when you extracted it or when you returned it? Perhaps you have a tangle? I always hold the hose when releasibg it back (while depressing the handle) so it doesn't whip in there and get tangled. I am always careful and baby my stuff and it always lasts a long time. Did you depress the handle of the hose to return it?

Here is what i would do - take the hose all the way out (if you can) and slowly control its return by depressing the handle and holding onto the hose - if that does not work return the hose and ask for a refund or a second hose, Good luck! This is a great company so you won't have any problem either way.

Hose reel retraction problem

My hose reel will only retact half of the hose and will not take the rest in. I have tried pulling it all the way out to the yellow as directed but it still will only reel in half of the length of the hose.
send it back I don't have this problem, that would drive me nuts!

How is the post installed in the ground?

Should it be mounted in cement or can the post be driven deep enough to handle the weight?
I would use cement or have someone really good install it

Install location and mounting plate

I just bought this hose and it's much larger and heavier than I thought it would be. I have two questions.
#1. Can the hose unit be mounted on the side of my house where my old hose was located. I have plastic siding. I'm not sure the thickness of the wood beyond the siding.
#2. The black metal mounting plate has a flat side and a beveled side. Which side goes against the house?

Thank you.
consult a local handyman to install it properly
