I admit to having doubts about this. However, take a look at the ff. references:

rainbow arc

hi wilf

i found so many references to products and companies with "rainbow" in them, that there were still thousands left when i had whittled it down to pages also containing "light" motor" etc etc.

i hope this is what you are looking for - perhaps inputting alittle more of your context into the search you can get to it - something tells me that "arco de lluvia" is probably a translation itself (no comment on how good or bad) of the term "rainbow" in english......

hope this is on the right track

saludos y sonrisas,

álvaro :O)

by the way confidence rank 3 out of 5 could be called "i am wondering" or "wandering" even"!!!!

as to the motor driven bit, which i didn\'t get to mentioning - i think it\'s a question of checking out whether there are many of these items which are driven by any other mechanism

agree  DonQuijote: Patricia: Where in this dictionary? Is it under "Arco de lluvia motorizado"? If so, I must have an old version (March 78). I didn't think they changed the contents!
3 hrs
  -> I havethe last version, and together with Collazzo`s technical terms only the term "waterfall" is entered, certainly not"motor" which is my coinage, I did find motorized though, yet I did not particularly fall for it.
