Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a Christmas Life Saver After many Christmas trees dying year after year, I stumbled across this product. My wife thought it would be a gimmick, but against her advice I ordered it online. Boy was she happy when we started using it. Although we thought drilling the hole might harm the tree, this device is ingenious. Ease of watering, a visual water level on the bottle, a clamp to make it easy to refill the bottle. Heck, even my cats couldn't drink the water. By the way, the "christmas present watering box" I bought the year before... now it sits in my storage closet collecting dust. (The picture attached has them sitting next to each other, it was the first year I bought the Christmas Tree IV, 2008.) I HIGHLY recommend this product!!! October 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great idea that works!!!!! I have use the IV for 3 weeks now and my tree still green with no needles falling off. Easy to install and easier to refill the jug. Wish I had this years ago.... December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by You need to read this tip! I have used the tree IV watering system for several years and only one year did it fail me. Which was actually a user error. My wife was on my case on how to use the IV and we'd had such a successful year the year before so I figured there wouldn't be an issue. Well, if you don't keep the water level above the tube in your water bottle or you knock the tube out of the water bottle, you can't just stick it back under the water. This makes sense, of course, because air bubbles will get in there and inhibit the flow of water. Which is what happened. My wife was so frustrated because she had reminded me that you needed to re-siphon the tube if that were to take place, and I figured it wasn't a big deal and I conveniently ignored her. Unfortunately she was right again… Whoops. I have a suspicion that the review where the person did not have good success with this watering system may have had something like this happen. It truly is fool proof if you follow the guidelines. The couple times this year I knocked the tube out of the water (again) I trying to shortcut it, again. My wife got all sorts of irritated and went and looked at the tube which was filled with air bubbles that would have eventually made it to the hole in the tree and dried it out causing it to stop absorbing the water. My bad. She fixed it and all is well. I like to say I'll probably listen better because every time we've done it as directed, at her insistence, it's worked perfectly. But after 17 years I'm not sure that I will remember to listen. LOL December 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will never do Christmas again without the Christmas Tree I-V! We really enjoy getting our Christmas tree right after Thanksgiving, but it often dries out quickly. We've tried all sorts of tricks and ideas online, and some have helped a bit, but nothing like the Christmas tree IV. This provides a steady continuous water supply to your Christmas tree, and the first couple days we had, it our bottle emptied very quickly. Our tree was very thirsty! It was so easy to use and keep continuously watering, that I thought I would never go without one again. In addition, we had purchased the Christmas tree stand by the same manufacturer, and I won't do Christmas without that either. I had the great pleasure of actually having contact with the owner and designer of these products, before they hit the retail stores. I know the integrity and character of this inventor, and would recommend purchases of his products without hesitation. This receives my complete 100% recommended stamp of approval. Let your Christmas morning be filled with a vibrant, lush, beautifully green Christmas tree. This also helps guard against fire hazards when you have a tree that is still alive and well. One more perk, very few needles to clean up after Christmas. This in itself is worth the purchase. So, buy this without hesitation. Have a vividly beautiful Christmas, with a fragrant, lush, gorgeous Christmas tree, thanks to the Christmas Tree I-V! (You'll thank me for the push to purchase, I'm certain!!) (And get the stand too! It miraculously made our crooked trunk look perfect, and the stress level at our house last year was almost at a zero!!!! Get the Standtastic Adjustable Christmas Tree Stand!!! Don't spend another frustrated Christmas struggling to set up your tree!) October 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only way to water a Christmas tree! This is only my second one purchased in 23 years, yes it lasts!......I love this product! You don't have to "get on your knees" to water the tree! Love, love, love it! December 10, 2013
