it is useless. I purchased this for one job only
on 2 June 2017
I hate to leave any negative feedback, but I could not find a way to contact the seller.
As always, I read through the comments for this item before purchase and since the reviews were overwhelmingly positive, I chose to ignore the negative ones.
More fool me!
As many have suggested, the air valve on this item is extremely poorly made.
I have had this item less than 30 mins. I opened up the delivery, unboxed it. Added the solution I wish to spray (woodworm killer), primed it 15 times (it states between 10 and 20) and IMMEDIATELY heard air releasing through the valve. So much so that it was depleted within seconds.
I primed again after checking it was securely fastened.. again air escaped.
I did manage to pull the trigger once before the pressure dropped too far and the jet from the nozzle was not focused at all (I had set to that). It had a weak central column of fluid and several offshoots in various directions. Definitely not what you want when spraying chemicals.
To conclude, unless the seller or manufacturer can give a solution to this issue, do not purchase this item, it may be cheap but even then it is unfortunately not worth it if yours has this issue, it is useless.
I purchased this for one job only, hence not spending much, but I now have to locate another as I am sure I cannot return it after filling its belly with nasty chemicals.
