I had the same problem and had to take apart the handle portion and found that there was something in the line at that point. After cleaning it I had the same pressurse as when it was new.

Mix about 1/2 cup of Dawn soap and water half way in the sprayer as it might have a little oil in it from fungicide liquid or anything else with oil content that has been in the sprayer. Once you have sprayed the sprayer for about 10 min. let the soap soak in the tubing for at least a couple hours or overnight is better. Rinse out good and try spraying just water and see if it works. Also,be sure to check for air leaking you should be able to hear it if you put your ear up close to the sprayer after pumping it. Another thing is make sure the handle is in its full locking position. On the side of the tank there is usually a little release valve be sure it's tight and if you find that it is loose and or leaking screw it out nice and easy and wrap some white plumbing tape around it and screw it back in just not to tight as you don't want to ruin the thread on it.
I hope this helps and fixes the problem without having to buy a new pressure sprayer. Good Luck!

I am confused. Your driveway weed killer says 1 quart per one gallon of water, and the dial n spray has just ounces on the top up to 8 ounces and up to 32 ounces to be filled on the side of container....


Hey, sorry for the confusion. Actually Ortho GroundClear can not be used in the Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer because this sprayer will only dilute up to 8oz per gallon. This dilution rate is not enough for the product to be effective in keeping the area clear of vegetation. Hope this clears it up.

Can I dilute Scotts Miracle Grow for use in my Ortho dial spray bottle?


Yes, you can use Miracle-Gro Water Soluable Plant Food in the Ortho Dial N Spray hose-end sprayer. Simply set the dial on the Dial N Spray to 4 ounces. The label rate for Miracle-Gro All Purpose Plant Food is 1 tablespoon per gallon of water. To make 8 gallons of finished spray, measure 8 rounded tablespoons of plant food into the Dial N Spray jar and fill the jar with water. Mix thoroughly. Set the dial at 4 ounces. When you have sprayed until jar is empty, you will have applied 8 gallons of properly diluted spray. Hilary@Scotts

What setting do I use on my ortho dial and spray for fertilizing plants and vegetables outdoors? Thanks


If you are using Miracle-Gro Water Soluable All Purpose Plant Food in the Ortho Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer, follow the directions below :

  • Set the dial to 4 oz
  • The sprayer can make up to 8 gallons of spray. Add the correct amount of product to the jar for number of gallons you wish to make. (Example - The dilution rate is 1 tablespoon per gallon, and you want to make 8 gallons, put 8 tablespoons of Miracle-Gro Plant Food in the jar.)
  • Multipy 4 by the number of gallons you are making and fill to that oz line (Example - If you are making 8 gallons, 4x8=32 so fill to the 32 oz mark with water).
  • Prior to spraying, mix product around in the jar until granules are dissloved.
  • Spray until the jar is empty.When it is empty, you have sprayed 8 gallons of product.
If you any questions or if you are using another product, please give us a call at 800-225-2883, and we will be happy to figure out a setting for you!

Using Ortho weed and crabgrass concentrate... what setting do i use on my Ortho hose end sprayer


Here is what they say at their site:

{ ...
How do I use the Ortho Dial 'N Spray Multi-Use Hose-End Sprayer?
Pour product into jar, and set dial to amount indicated on product label and begin spraying. This sprayer siphons product and mixes while spraying; it does not mix inside the sprayer.

Which means it is not determined by Scotts, but by the product you want to disperse with the Dial N Spray.

And here is an exact description of the settings:

{ ... There are 14 settings in all and they range from 1 teaspoon per gallon up to 8 ounces per gallon. You will find the dial at the on the top of the sprayer. ... }

"The instructions on Ortho Garden Disease Control (Daconil) give directions for use in the dial and spray. Set dial at 4 Oz. Add 1 TBS Daconil and 7 TBS water for each gallon you want. I am using the dial and spray and don't see as much residue as when I was using a pump spray.

Instructions for using ortho tree sprayette


The Ortho Tree and Shrub Sprayette has a fixed mixing jet set to a 24:1 ratio. 5.3 ounces of spray concentrate in the jar will mix to produce 1 gallon of diluted spray. The jar has a capacity of 42.7 ounces, so you can spray up to 8 gallons with 1 filling. If you look at the side of the jar, you will see two filling scales. On the left is the diluted spray capacity, and on the right is the concentrate scale. So you will see 8 gallons opposite 32 ounces, for instance.

You must dilute concentrates to the 24:1 mixing concentration. So if your concentrate says 1 ounce/gallon, and you want to spray 6 gallons, put in 6 ounces and add water to the jar to the 32 ounce level.
