Asked by: Russ
Apparently it is obvious that you threw away the instruction manual/warranty card/replacement parts reorder form leaflet for your Ross Root Feeder instead of keeping it in a safe place. Contact them in writing: Ross Root Feeder Dept. c/o Easy Gardener Inc., P.O. Box 21025, Waco, Texas 76702-1025 or by telephone: (800)327-9462 or (254)753-5353 or by fax: (254)753-5372 and request a "new" parts replacement list/warranty registration form/instruction manual leaflet: RF-39494.3 and try not to throw away the new instructions manual leaflet when you receive it and store it in a safe place. But first make sure the flat rubber gasket washer or "O" ring is clean and free from any/all dirt and debris as well as the lid, body screen and body seat should clean before using it.

This is an excellent product which I have used successfully for many years. Left my last one behind for the folks who bought our house to help save the hundred year plus maple tree just a few feet from the house. You will likely need an iron bar to make a hole so it can fit easily.
