@iphlawns - iphlawns | Grabbed one of these at Bunnings for $109. Normally just use the cheap ones but thought I’d step up to something a bit more UV resistant. This one has lasted three uses despite being ‘Pro’. Leaks air from the handle and doesn’t get any pressure to spray. Cleaned out the centre pump area, still leaks. Always stored indoors. 
Anyone used one of these before? Are they known to be rubbish? Flogging a dead horse? 
I’d expect $109 to last ten times as long as $10.90, not one tenth as long. #Silvan #Bunnings

Worth noting that when i removed the pump plunger, the sealing diaphragm is a hard plastic ring and not a soft o-ring. the insides of the piston shaft were scratched and gouged. all through normal use three times. i’d say that either this is a strange anomaly, or a very common occurrence given the absence of a soft ring for the piston.
@justmowit
@iphlawns have you seen our sprayer range mate?
@iphlawns
@justmowit not yet mate. i’ll have a squiz tho.
@true_lawn_care
Buy a hardi.
@justmowit
@iphlawns will msg you the link mate
@iphlawns
@justmowit cheers guys. got it.
@iphlawns
@true_lawn_care they look pretty robust. i prefer the hand sprayers. 11l is the perfect size for me which is what i had in the silvan. i have a backpack sprayer and haven’t used it in over a year. just don’t have the need for it.
@iphlawns
@justmowit thanks. i’m keen on hand sprayers. i like the 11l size or thereabouts. pretty much does everything i need it to. i have a back sprayer already and i rarely use it.
