Having seen your profile picture I agree with your wife

I've got a few backpacks that need spraying, so this will come in handy.

Don't forget to check that they're the right size. This is for spraying 16L backpacks only.

With or without the backpack.
I'd recommend ramming a bit of dowel down the pump handle if you buy one, preferably BEFORE it snaps

I will indeed ram something down my pump handle prior to my next squirt.
I ain't afraid of no weeds!

I bought that sprayer from Screwfix a few years ago. £11.99 is a good price but the pumping mechanism is poor. I got so fed up with it and did some research and bought a different design. HERE Available in 12l, 16l, and 20l. The build quality is not quite as good as the Screwfix one but the pumping action is so, so much better and I expect to get many years use out of it.

They look the same to me. Spend 10x more and get a CP sprayer

You need to look closer at the pump priming mechanism. The ebay ones I linked to have the pump primer fitted through the base - just like the CP sprayers. Makes for a much smoother action. The Screwfix one is awful to use in comparison.

Now I look closely I can see

One thing to be aware of on those is to make sure the top hose is properly tightened. I used one a few years ago and ended up with about 5l of glyphosate mix down my back

Do you know if you can connect a tap connector/hose to it. Hard to explain but I'm wanting to feed 'pure' RO water to my pressure washer for car and window cleaning and would want to link this tank via short hose with hozelock connector to the pressure washer
Bought this sprayer and as the other reviews on the site the pump mechanism locks up.

I asked on the other sprayer thread so might as well ask on this one: are these any good for washing (wet) mud off bikes?
Cheers.

Hi. No it doesn't have a connector. These type of sprayers don't have a pressurised container. It's the pump action of the handle that creates the flow.
