Works a treat by Happy fence painter

After my Ronseal battery powered sprayer failed on only the 3rd time in its 4 year life span requirement, went for this basic unit. It works a treat used the ronseal Medium Oak and a very good result achieved.

Good sprayer bad paint by Disappointed

I have no complaints about the sprayer - it works well however, the paint is rubbish. I went for mid oak and the colour is more redish than brown. Have used Cuprinol in the past and their colours are a lot more true. Basically, I have just wasted the cost of the paint and the time.

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.

Preparing the Sprayer

The Sprayer is supplied fully assembled and ready to use, but please ensure that all connections to the sprayer and hose/wand are hand tightened.

Filling the Sprayer

Shake the pack of the Ronseal Sprayable liquid thoroughly. Push down the handle of the sprayer and rotate anti-clockwise until the pump pulls out. Fill liquid to the desired level . The unit is designed to hold 4 litres of liquid, which is indicated on the unit. Do not exceed this limit.
Once filled insert the pump and turn the handle clockwise to fully tighten.

Pressurising the Sprayer

Place the unit on a flat surface to ensure stability and begin pumping the handle up and down. Pressurise the sprayer until the pressure release valve opens, a slight hissing noise should be heard.


Ensure timber is clean and dry. Remove any dirt, moss, fungal and lichen growth with a stiff brush. Always observe any additional instructions supplied on the Sprayable product pack.
Adjust the spray nozzle until it is vertical and in line with the trigger. To obtain the best results use the nozzle at a distance of around 25cm away from the surface being sprayed. Start spraying by squeezing the trigger.
Spray the edges of the timber first followed by any vertical struts before spraying the middle of the timber panel.
To avoid any overspray, mask off surrounding areas and cover plants, paths, patios and grass, etc. Do not use in windy conditions as this will result in excessive overspray.
Use long sweeping arm movements rather than short wrist movements to ensure the distance between the work piece and the nozzle is kept constant. Overlap each pass by 50% to ensure even coverage.
After a period of time the pressure will decrease resulting in a narrow spray pattern, restore pressure by re-pumping.
Refill with Sprayable liquid as required, ensuring that any residual pressure has been released by lifting the pressure release valve.

Clean up

To empty the sprayer, push the pump handle all the way down and lift the pressure release valve until no “hissing” can be heard. Once the pressure has escaped, unscrew the pump unit and tip any liquid back into its container. (Alternatively, spray the excess liquid back in to its bottle before releasing pressure). Remove as much product from the sprayer as possible before cleaning, some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings. Do not empty into drains or watercourses. It is important that the sprayer is cleaned thoroughly after use. Failure to do so may render the unit useless. Do not leave sprayer filled with product when not in use or overnight. Rinse out the sprayer several times with clean water, then refill with clean water. Re-pressurise and then spray through the nozzle until the water runs clear.

Cleaning the wand filter

Unscrew the wand handle from the trigger and thoroughly clean the filter and housing with clean water.

Cleaning the nozzle and nozzle filter

Remove the nozzle and white filter and clean with warm soapy water and an old toothbrush or nail brush. Do not use a pin or other sharp object since this will damage the nozzle and destroy the spray pattern. Reassemble the nozzle taking care to assemble the parts in the correct order.
