  1. Hello, I found and purchased a item called the ring a lawn sprinkler, it works amazing I would like to know more about the W.D.Allen and if any other items are available for purchase.

  2. I am a restorer, and antique/vintage sprinkler expert….by proxy. My collection and data-base of all sprinklers, pre-dates the web. Before eBay and Google, I was gathering printed matter. Now, I have everything there is about these old marvels. I re-condition the past, for the future owner.

  3. I have a W.D. Allen red arrow lawn sprinkler. The arrow measure 18 inches and the sprinkler is 18 inches in height. I never seen one that big. I would like some information about this sprinkler.
