Product Info

Connect the Fertiliser Spray Mixer to your hose and quickly and conveniently dispense commercial fertiliser or weed spray on to your lawn or garden. The easy-to-use trigger spray is ideal for those who suffer from arthritis and are unable to use a pump-style bottle.

Tired of ill-fitting connections to pre-mixed fertiliser spray bottles? Due to strong demand, we've introduced the Fertiliser Spray Mixer so you can enjoy a reliable connection between your Hoselink-fitted hose and the Fertiliser Spray Mixer - no more leaky fittings!

How to use the Fertiliser Spray Mixer

  1. Add concentrate to the bottle, no pre-mixing required. *Please ensure you read the instructions on the fertiliser bottle as this may vary.*
  2. Set dilution ratio by turning the selector dial until the desired number is aligned with the brass knob on the side of the dial.

    To work out the setting required for your own brand of fertiliser use the table below:

     
  3. Attach the Mixer to your Hoselink-fitted hose using the included Accessory Connector.
  4. Turn water flow on. Squeeze the trigger and spray on to your lawn or garden as required.

Installing the flow reduction

  1. Unscrew the bottle and remove the siphon tube.
  2. Unscrew the brass pin from above the selector dial.
  3. Push the flow reducer into the top of the siphon tube. Top tip: place brass pin on a hard surface and push siphon tube down until flush.
  4. Put siphon tube back in place firmly and reassemble the bottle.

How it works

The selecter dial draws a measured amount of fertiliser up from the spray bottle and mixes it with water flowing through from the sprayer. Dilution rates are printed on the outside of the bottle for convenience. The benefit of this system is it allows for an even spread of fertiliser.

A note about the Fertiliser Spray Mixer

This product is suitable for use with Hoselink fertilisers and our car cleaning range as well as commercially available fertilisers or weed sprays. If you are using a product from a pre-mixed spray bottle, simply tip it straight in. If you are using a concentrate please follow the directions on the bottle (it may recommend diluting with water before use).

Not suitable for low water pressure or use with water tanks.

It is not suitable for use with compost or worm farm liquid as the sediment in these liquids will clog the spray outlet.

Clean and reuse! Fill bottle with water, set dial to 10 and spray until empty. This will prevent the contamination of multiple fertilisers/cleaning products.

Bottle holds 450ml.

This product comes with a Hoselink connector included for quick connection to your Hoselink-fitted garden hose. If you are new to Hoselink then you will need to either convert your hose to Hoselink no-burst fittings (we recommend the Water Wise Starter Kit) or alternatively you can unscrew the Hoselink connector from this device and replace it with a standard click-on style male connector (please note we do not sell these).

Q. How can I achieve an exact measurement?

A. In reality, you cannot achieve an exact measurement as there are many variables including your water pressure, how much concentrate you use, which brand you use, what type of product you are using.  You can vary output by increasing or decreasing the flow rate, or by increasing or decreasing the concentrate used.

Q. What Setting do I need to use?

This will depend on what type of fertiliser you are using. Recommended dilution rates will be on the back of the product.

The dilution rates detailed on the mixer are per litre of water. Hoselink fertilisers will indicate a per litre setting on the back of the bottle
Other brands often use a dilution rate based on a 9 litre watering can. In these instances, to work out the per litre amount, divide the dilution by 9.

Use the Table Below to work out the required dilution rate:

 

Once you find your dilution rate, refer to the table on the back of the mixer to find the closet setting to achieve that dilution rate.

Q. How much fertiliser do I put in the bottle?

You can put as much fertiliser as you want in the bottle. The amount in the bottle does not determine how much fertiliser is being used. This is all based on the dilution rate setting.
It’s often easier to put in more than you need.
Any unused fertiliser can always be poured back into your fertiliser container when finished.

Q. My fertiliser bottle is filling up with water, how do I fix this?

Generally, if the bottle is filling up with water it indicates that water pressure is lacking. Try turning up the water from the tap or checking for leaks.

Q. The sprayer is not drawing up the fertiliser, only water is spraying out. How do I fix this?

Check there is enough fertiliser in the spray bottle to reach the siphon tube. Feel free to put more fertiliser in than you need as it always can be poured back into its original bottle if not needed.
If using a reducer, the dilution rate may be so great that it does not appear to be drawing up much fertiliser, and won’t be visible to the naked eye. Not sure? The best way to test this would be to fill the bottle with water, reduce the dilution rate to setting 10, and turn the hose on. If the liquid is sucked up, then you will know that the mixer is functional.

Q. When should I use the reducer?

Looking at the dilution rate table printed on the spray mixer;
Only use the reducer if the you cannot get the dilution rate you need without its use.
The reducer is designed for products that require a very high dilution rate. So that only a miniscule amount is used per litre of water.

Q. How do I use the reducer?

To use the reducer; remove reducer from top of selector dial. Unscrew the bottle, take the filter off the bottom of the siphon tube. Place the reducer (Thread side up) into the siphon tube and replace the filter. Screw bottle back on to spray head.

Q. Why are there 2 dilution lists on the bottle?

The two lists show the difference in dilution rate, with and without the reducer in place.
The reducer should only be used to achieve a very high dilution rate ( as per the instructions on your fertiliser)

Q. What Fertilisers / concentrate can you use in the bottle?

Most fertilisers are fine to use.
Granulated fertilisers, when used with the reducer, can cause blockages

Q. Do you have larger bottles? or spares?

We only offer the one size bottle – 450ml.
Spare bottles will be available late 2020

Hi. I am having trouble with it. It will not **** the fertiliser up. I would like to know what I am doing wrong. I had trouble with the first one I purchased and you kindly sent me a replacement one and it does the same Regards Phil

Hi Phil, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We have experienced this problem when the water pressure is not strong enough. The way the Spray Mixer works is when the water flows through the system it creates a suction and distributes the fertiliser. We would recommend trying the system without the brass flow reducer in place and seeing if this makes any difference - this has been the savior in the past. If you continue to have problems, please let us know. Kind regards, The Hoselink Team

The only mixer to use.

Excellent gadget, makes fertilising enjoyable & results show in 4-6 weeks of weekly routine. Make sure u set the fertiliser/water ratio correct (as indicated on fertiliser bottle). I add a little Hoselink soil conditioner to spray mixer. All one has to do is connect mixer to hose, spray where fertiliser is needed (clean mixer well after each time). After 4-6 weeks, all plants will be flourishing....more flowers, fruiting & generally a very healthy garden with plenty of earthworms. Enjoy

Replacement spares

Recently I required a ball and spring assembly located in the head of the unit. Hoselink were unable to furnish any spares and imagine to my surprise when I received a whole new Fertiliser Spray Mixer Well done Hoselink on a fantastic range of after sales and quality equipment. Cannot speak highly enough of the quality and service. Many thanks

Best gun money can buy!

Great for not only using fertiliser mix for the garden, but put a cap of wash shampoo for your car and you have a suds gun to use straight onto your car. my Car washes are done in 25mins it's that easy. Does a magnificent job highly recommend!
