    If it's WCW backpack then it'll be the cheap chinese pulse width modulator that's failed. You can replace it with one of theirs or buy something decent from amazon for £6 and fit it yourself.

    They won't as they can replace the failed part. And if it is WCW they'll probably want you to pay for it - shocking customer service from them.

    My issue was spoken about to your staff a while back, lets just say I wouldn't buy anything from you again after the shocking service I received over both of my backpacks that have each had at least 3 speed controllers each in the last 12 months, back pack warranty elapsed 2 weeks after fitting 2 new speed controllers and you refused to honour the warranty on the NEW speed controllers.

    Well that says it all about the quality of those cheap china made backpack sprayers being sold as wfp backpacks at a ridiculous inflated mark-up :Image16:

    I agree, when the electronics die in my 2 I will be re making them myself how they should have been done in the first place. No IP in something that carries water/liquids is ridiculous.
