    How to do it:

    Unscrew the lance on the pump and attach pole hose to the trigger. Attach the John Guest connector to the other end of the hose. Feed hose up the pole. Trim the Nerf gun bullet with a Stanley knife and shove it in the resi neck. Feed the lance through the hole in the bullet that is now snug in the resi neck. The reason for the bullet is to stop the lance spinning round. Attach the lance to the John Guest. Attach Unger swivel pad to resi neck. Attach micro pad to the swivel pad. Pump up the sprayer, press the trigger and Bob's yer uncle :)

    Nice work. Got any jobs lined up for it? Il be interested to see how that nozzle get on. Does it twist to allow a mist rather than a jet? On my first cleaning did I was getting the odd drip even from a mist because I had to apply more water given the dirt levels.

    Yes, the nozzle will turn to make a mist. Only problem I can see is it dripping on the micro and getting it wet possibly. No work for it ATM, but it's ready to go if needed. The trigger worked a lot better than I thought it would, as the water had to pass through 25' of hose.

    I had water collecting on the back of the dragonfly pad. So if you get that it's no different to the off the shelf product / version. So does the sprayer maintain a decent pressure so that you can release a squirt of mist without going back to re pump every time?

    It's in its infancy Luke. I've only tried it spraying for a short time. The spray bottle will have to be carried with me and will only be a couple of feet away if I need to pump it up a bit more anyway.

    I reckon it'll do the job :thumbsup:

    Going into mass production soon :cool:
