Backpack Sprayer 16Ltr 16Ltr
This is not an expensive sprayer but, even taking this into account, it is very a poor quality item. The main problem is the lever used to pressurise the tank, which is flimsy and its pivot is very weak and loose, threatening to break off at any moment. The instructions say to pump the lever up to six times to pressurise the tank, but this is impossible: after a couple of pumps the resistance is such that you're unable to do any more. As a result, the sprayer remains pressurised for only a few seconds as you use it, requiring you to pump it constantly in use. The resistance was such that it was impossible to pump it while it was on your back. The only way we could use it was to place it on the ground, with one of us pumping it constantly while the other did the spraying. Had the job we required it for not been urgent, I would have returned the item for a refund. Instead, it's going in the bin after a single use. To be fair to Screwfix, this is the first product I've bought from them that was so unsatisfactory.

great value sprayer
Have used this a couple of times now, and for the price its pretty good value. Quite comfortable to wear, strong spray and with all the spares it comes with, hopefully it will last. One thing I found is that you have to keep pumping while you spray, as it doesn't seem to hold much pressure.

Bought this after buying and returning a so called similar item on eBay. What a difference in quality. This is strong with sturdy metal connections and comes with a choice of nozzles as well. Looks like it will last a long time. Buy one while you can just for your garden toolkit. You will not buy better for the price.

What a Bargain.. easy to use and so far has been reliable.. and comes with spare parts and extra different spray nozzles too..
Recommend you use black perma pen to make the level markers more prominent as they are hard to see. This being same issue as all other sprayers I have ever used..
Buy Now before they run out !!!!
