I am sure this is a good deal but I find the Ronseal Fence sprayer quick but expensive. The sprayable stuff costs more and there is a lot of mither in cleaning the nozzle as it starts to spit rather than spray. It also spashes a lot.

I have spent about £100 on the spraylife and the fence didn't get finished. It is a big fence, big garden, big house etc.

Obviously!

I bought the Ronseal sprayer for £8.99 from Home Bargains and the 3 x 5 litre containers of the preservative stuff for £3.99 each.

I then read such bad reviews on the Ronseal device that I took it straight back for a refund before opening it. Going to fall back on my pump action tub :-D

Anyone know their sprayers? Is this any better than something like the Earlex HV190 at Screwfix for £30 less?

I use the £13 electric sprayer from Screwfix for doing my fences along with some ordinary creosote stuff and plenty of white spirit.

I use a similar thing but find that it's quite heavy having it all in one unit and drips quite alot as it starts to get clogged. I wondered if a better system might be a little better for jobs where I need a bit more control.

No better than the Earlex

The £12 titan/Screwfix and creosote option is certainly the cheapest. And for the price of the sprayer I suppose it's disposable (I hate creosote though - not exactly the keen gardeners' friend).

The more expensive the Earlex the greater variety of liquid that can be sprayed - ie thicker ones. the hand held all in one jobs don't hold much paint, so my tip would be to get one with extensions pipes that you can dunk into a larger container of paint - this is just plastic tubing, so you can usually 'convert' a cheap sprayer easily if they aren't included.

The thing is with spraying you will lose more paint with the overspray than with a brush method - so it's a balance of time v materials cost. I've been using Dulux primer which is about £50 for 5 litres - so i brush apply as I don't want to waste it. For the final colour coat I'll probably spray a a very thinned down colour & probably have to do it twice - I've 27 x 6ft x 6ft panels to do so you can sort of see why it makes sense.

One other consideration - brush painting is a bit messy, but you can stop, wrap your bushes, call it a day and come back to it. The sprayer requires mask/goggles and ear defenders with the sprayer needing to be cleaned or it'll seize. Even if you're using thin preservative/stain it's a good idea to sieve the medium as if you don't any bits will clog the nozzle and you'll be swearing every five minutes. For me this involves ladies tights, a funnel, patience, and a certain amount of prep.

You've been warned! The smaller the area, the easier it is with a brush.

I read this and found my mind wandering to other matters.

Then you sir, have a very base sort of mind.

:-D you found your mind wandering, I had to pay for a funnel and ladies tights at the same checkout. It's a good job they didn't sell the light oil you also need for keeping the piston from seizing.
