Ronseal Precision Finish Power Sprayer

Before You Start

Before you start, make sure it’s a warm dry day. Then mask off any areas that you don’t want to spray. Don’t spray in windy weather otherwise you could end up spraying more than just your fence.

First, you need to unclip the sprayer from the tub A by pushing the clips down, you’ll find the trigger, wand and nozzle inside. Screw the wand onto the trigger by tightening the locking collar, do this by hand. Then attach the trigger to the spray hose. You don’t need to put the nozzle on at this point.

Using Your Sprayer

First you need to pour your Ronseal One Coat or Fencelife Plus+ liquid into the black tank. Don’t put any solvent based liquids in your sprayer as this will damage it. But before you start spraying you need to remove any air locks that may be in the pipe work, otherwise the liquid may splutter out. Grab a bucket or something similar and spray into it for at least 15 seconds. This will remove the trapped air. You can then pour the liquid back into the sprayer later. Finally, screw on the nozzle elbow and check the nozzle is in a vertical position. You’re now ready to start.

1. Accuracy: The smallest fan setting for fiddly spaces. Turn the dial to setting number 1, the blue light will come on. You can use this setting to outline the edges of your fence panel as it gives less overspray in those hard to reach corners. Make sure the nozzle is no more than 15cm away from the fence. Pull the trigger to begin spraying. Start in the middle of the panel and work towards the edge. There will be an initial build up of pressure that will cause a larger fan pattern. Tip: Work faster when using this setting.

2. Control: For larger areas Turn the dial to setting number 2, the blue light will come on. This is perfect for control and precision when filling in the gaps. When using the control setting, stand with the nozzle around 25cm away from the fence. Use long sweeping arm movements rather than short wrist movements. You should slow down your arm movements when using this setting. When moving down the fence overlap part of your previous pass by 50%, this’ll make sure the whole area is covered with the correct amount of product. You should keep the nozzle vertical when using this spray setting.

3. Speed: For getting the job done fast on large areas Turn the dial to setting number 3, the blue light will come on. This will give the widest spray pattern allowing you to finish the job fast. There’ll be more overspray when using this setting, that’s why you should use setting 1 around edges and this wider fan for filling in the gaps. Use the sprayer in the same way you would for setting 2.

Clean Up

Cleaning the sprayer

Sprayers aren't cheap, so if you want to use it again, you need to clean it out properly.

1. Pour as much unused liquid back into its original container. Fill the tank with warm water. Give it a good swirl out, the tank needs to be clean for the next steps. 

2. Fill the black tank with clean warm water and clip the sprayer on. Hold the unit straight and give it a shake, this will clean any liquid from the dip tube and the bottom of the sprayer. Then unclip the tank and throw the water away.

3. Finally refll the tank with water and clip the sprayer back on. Turn the sprayer on and spray the water into a bucket until it runs clear, this may take a couple of minutes.

Cleaning the nozzle and nozzle filter

You’ll need to give all parts of the sprayer a good clean to stop it from clogging up. Unscrew the wand, handle and the nozzle. You’ll need to take the filter out of the nozzle too. Soak this all in warm water and scrub with a toothbrush until it’s clean. Don’t be tempted to shove a pin or anything sharp into the nozzle, it’ll ruin the fan pattern. Let all the parts dry then screw it all back together. Before you put it back in the box, take the batteries out of the sprayer, if they leak it could damage the unit.

Product reviews

brilliant & inexpensive by Tim Bates

A pleasure to use. I believe I am quite critical, but this sprayer does exactly what it says on the tin (box actually)! The nozzle did tend to clog after prolonged use (3 hours), but that's probably my fault. Easy to clean!
