    Im looking to buy a pump pressure vessel (like a garden sprayer) to pump inhibitor into radiators.
    I’m unsure which one to go for. Has anyone any experience of using one for this purpose and Can anyone recommend a good one please?

    Dan :)

    Why don't you just use the rapid dose stuff?

    Well first of all I don’t like using too much packaging especially airosols. Also I can use the pressure vessel for dosing caravans with anti-freeze and also blowing water lines out for the winter :)
    I’m also working on a theory that I could use the pump vessel to start a syphon effect to drain a hot water cylinder :)

    One like this? I have the old manual version with the two braided hoses which I love.

    No problem mate. Looked at one for myself. But old faithful is still going strong.
