  3. Don't forget you can always change the cache container to something else....I would hate to see a bunch of caches get archived
  4. I've placed one sprinkler head container, but it was in a place where there was no sprinkler system, so there was no chance of damage. I think it is more an issue with the manner people use to look for caches, rather than the method used for hiding caches. A thoughtless searcher can tear up almost anything. Of course, inviting people to look into places where they really shouldn't be isn't helpng much either! Without the invent of this type of hide, I doubt people would be breaking sprinkler heads! Not only is that position undefendable, but it hasn't been shown that real sprinkler heads actually broken by cachers is a widespread phenomenon. Personally, I have never found a broken sprinkler head while looking for a cache. I've seen them personally. Maybe not even widespread, but I'd hate to see it become widespread since this would certainly become a problem with landowners and the caching community. Undefendable? Maybe, maybe not...how many cachers do you suppose would bother with a sprinkler unless they thought the cache could possibly be there?? If hiding a cache somewhere near a real sprinkler head, you could always post there's no need to look in the sprinklers! You can't put something on the cache page and really believe that every cacher is going to see it, can you? How many time have we talked about the fact that so many people hunt caches without reading descriptions? I'm not saying don't put the info on the cache page, just don't think that it alone will protect the sprinkler heads. Exactly!! Our cache was disabled and yet someone was out there days afterwards trying to find it, they didnt read the cache page at all-obviously. The key to hiding is location......
  5. Ironically enough, we have used the sprinkler hide technique twice, back in SRQ where we 1st started caching and it was the 1st one of it's kind in that area so it was a great success-never had a maint issue or a problem. 3 years later they are everywhere so we thought we would try it again-MISTAKE!!!! We just had an issue with the sprinkler cache being burried and there a question about whether or not the cache had actually been found by a new non-PM. They logged a find after the cache had been disabled for several days. Once I saw the email notification that someone found the cache I ran right to the cache site to see what was going on: what we found was a brand new working sprinkler in it's place that was torn apart and laying all over the ground-cant say who did it, but someone did and I am glad I was there to put it back together. All the other sprinklers were intact around the whole fountain area except the new one that was right next to GZ and our cache sprinkler head was nowhere in site. I was ever so kindly informed that my sprinkler was burried-BURRIED i questioned? sure would have been nice to know that the day they found the cache (a needs maint log would have been helpful or hey maybe even a personal email stating/questioning/complaining the cache was burried), so once again we went back to the cache site with shovels in hand-NO CACHE. Unfortunately this turned into an exculated situation that has since been resolved. So in order to keep down on the traffic to that area and to make sure no one takes apart the working sprinkler heads in our neighborhood that we pay for, we have made the series of caches for PM only and replaced the cache with a different container. We will NOT be using sprinkler heads again. Shame it had to end up this way because it was a neat idea, we had gotten great reviews about it in the past, and now there is just too much destruction... Those of us that do good and follow the rules definitely dont need a bad name nor does geocaching as a whole RIP sprinkler caches (Mrs) Team CeDo
