Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel - better spray?

Hi.
I have just purchased the BH Auto Wheel and really love the product.

The spray bottle it arrived in does not have a wide 'spray', it is more like a jet. With no way of adjusting it.
Also, it tends to leak all over your fingers when using it.

Can anyone recommend a good spray trigger which will give good coverage/no leaks?

Chris

I'm also interested in hearing more experienced peoples suggestions.

I purchased several cheap garden spray bottles from Homebase. I think they were less than £1 each. They have an adjustable nozzle and can create more of a fine mist that I'd be looking for in certain situations, such as applying QD etc.

Worth checking out maybe - if you want to try something cheap.

Maybe this type will provide more of a mist:

Has it just been a bad nozzle? I've had a couple of bottles of Autowheel and never experienced what you describe. The spray IMO is decent and I've never had any product leak over my fingers.

I've had issues as you describe with previous spray bottles including H2GO and also tardis which I'd decanted into a spray bottle without a chemical nozzle

No problems though with Autowheel you could try phoning BH they might supply another spray head. Any time I've contacted them for advice they've been great

I have never experienced any problems but I take to product straight out of that ugly shaped bottle!

I have my AutoWheel in this bottle:

All you need though is a decent chemical resistant spray trigger like these ones.

I've used the same spray head to go through around 10 litres of the stuff over the years. The only problem that I have occasionally noticed (even when new) is that rarely it will tend to come out like a jet and not spray/mist as you've said. I've always put this down to it not being mixed up properly. Now and again, I tend to give it a good shake but just not right before I intend to use it.

Might be a completely stupid point but I'll mention it anyway.....

Does the nozzle in the spray head have two different settings? A lot I have bought recently come with a square nozzle. Two of the sides of the square (opposite sides) say 'Off'. A third side will say 'Jet' and on the side opposite that, the fourth side says 'Jet'.

Might be way off the mark but a thought?
