It would be a 220 mate we use the small ones at the min so I suppose you have to dose the barrels first? How do you carry on spraying and keep the water topped up?

We keep an eye on it ,when it runs low ,fill it back up with the accelerator, only takes 5/10 minutes depending on water pressure from the main

thanks Keith have you had any problems etc and what accelerator do you use?
To be honest ,if you can keep the walls dry ,we sometimes nail old tars to them ,you will have no problems ,but with a accelerator ,it is always a bit hit and miss ,all depends on north / south facing ,you know Dave . Trying one from @UKPlasteringmachines as it is clear and a good price ,before that we used wicks :RpS_blushing: did the job ,but not clear :RpS_blushing:

Thats ok if you want to carry them in your van ,one is fine mate
If we get a big job they'd just be left there mate, we've had 3-4 lads on jobs so try and spray a few metres, if we can switch butts it would help if not it's not the end of the world
 
It's no major problem switching buts, best way is to use a suction hose, these have a non return valve on the bottom so it's just a case of as each barrel empties then just drop it straight into the next one, we can make these up for you mate. If not its just a case of re priming the water each time you swap over
