    Looking for a good quality spray lance. Had a cheap Aldi one that always leaked and now stopped working on most of the spray patterns. Need something like this:

        But that's not available for delivery and there's none in stock for click and collect.

        I've noticed loads of stuff I want from Screwfix isn't available for delivery, and if it is there's a £50 min order.

        So I'm now getting what I need from Toolstation with free delivery on orders of £25 or more, everything I've wanted can be delivered, and they use Parcelforce (same as Screwfix) who give 1 hour deliv slots notification to mobile on your account and app tracking.

          Thanks @Scrungee I hadn't spotted it was "No Delivery" and even if there was stock for Click and Collect I would not risk standing in a queue in a tiny collection area along with a dozen or so builders.

          Seems it is sold out everywhere or ridiculous prices online. I can manage with my hand held spray gun for the time being.

            Plenty on Ebay but at a higher price than Screwfix. The leaky one will see you through this season.

              That's why I now use Toolstation.

              I thought I had one of those lances that's been sitting unused for many years from the days when elderly neighbours needed one on a hosepipe to water our highish hanging baskets when we were on holidays, found it this morning, but it's one without the fancy spray nozzle on the end.

                Think quite a few people are doing the same Scrungee. Our local toolstation opened a concession inside Wickes and a year or so later have outgrown it and have a purpose built store just opened... next to Screwfix!

                  @Loofah Toolstation was started up by the same guy who founded Screwfix then sold it to Kingfisher (B&Q) - so there is a lot of rivalry between the two chains. You will find them very close together in many towns.
