This is the one I used:

Was great for citrus degreaser which is what I used it for. It broke during a house move but lasted me for five years before that.

I bought one of them for £6 off amazon when they got posted on here a while back, had more leaks on it than Wikileaks, put ptfe tape around every joint & connection, worked okay for a couple of weeks but started dribbling outa lever you press for spray delivery, now have a Hozelock 7ltr Pro Pressure Sprayer 4807 £45 personally wouldn't opt for anything for a couple of quid unless you wanna be disappointed, I may just have had a bad one though, hozelock pro has viton seals & 3 year warranty

I have two Spears and Jackson 5 litre ones.
I even use one to spray moss killer in the garden.
Great in my experience.
But for the car, I use it at the petrol station jetwash to apply Power Maxed Jetwash and Wax. Although it's good I have gone back to my 2 litre pump sprayer from Asda as it is enough to coat my car and is just more portable.
My Asda one has been going for a couple of years now and was only a couple of quid so will be buying another when they stock them again in the summer.

I have one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00X2LBV70 - seems pretty robust and can hold a lot of solution (even though overall capacity is 5l it can do 4l without a problem).

I'm not overly keen on sprayers with brass lances and nozzles. The one I've currently has and the lance was easily bent and there was always the risk of accidentally catching the nozzle on the bodywork if you;re not careful.

If anyone was interested in the sprayer I mentioned I picked it up today.

Here are a couple of pics and the hose can be seen more easily. They are quite compact and have a decent pump as well, I had one at a similar price which had a very thin shaft which felt like it could easily break, this is solid in that area.

They should all be good for TFR. I use them for citrus degreasers.

another vote here for the spear & jackson one, i've used PM TFR in mine every week for the last year and is still going strong! brilliant piece of kit and looking into buying another for the wheel cleaner too.

you can usually pick them up on amazon for around £7.50-£10

Have you used it yet?

I got one myself today went to use it and it doesn't keep pressure very well. Air keeps escaping from the filler funnel despite it being tightly screwed on.

Will take it back tomorrow but if the replacement's as bad then I'm going to stop wasting money on cheap sprayers and get something decent.
