    I need to get Virosol and Algoclear to fascias and top of house wall.
    Has anyone used the Gardiners battery sprayer

    Gardiner 8 Litre Mini Battery Sprayer - Gardiner 8 Litre Battery Sprayers - Portable Systems - Pure Water Systems - All Products Gardiner Pole Systems

    or the backpack
    Gardiner Pure Water Backpack V3 - 22 litre - The Gardiner Backpack - Portable Systems - Pure Water Systems - All Products Gardiner Pole Systems

    for this kind of job?


    I've never used ''hypo'', would this be ok to use in these sprayers?

    Thank you

    I have a Gardiner 8ltr mini use it for hypo. Not bad for spraying decks, patios ect but pump can't handle buildings or and spraying at height work.

    For virosol or ubik a gardiners backpack is fine
    Or a 7l pump up sprayer from asda
    If it is too high for the lance to reach then connect a bit of small bore hose to a pole from the sprayer to reach the fascias etc

    Personally i just mix ubik with water in a 25l drum and use my diy trolley and wfp to spray it on everything then swap drums to pure

    this is where i'm doing it the roundabout way, i'm just spraying ubik with a mix of eco cover and pure onto the brush, some of it drips off the pole. pump is built into the backpack- could i just put ubik into the backpack? or will i get too much ubik on everything i rinse? i need something seperate surely?

    Then refill with pure to rinse

    Yeah I fancy that Benz nozzle
    Is it much better than using brush with big fan jets ?
