  • I replaced my CP "plastic" lances with 10mm stainless tubing............. you can pick it up very cheaply on Ebay in all different lengths. Lances will never break again however much stuff gets thrown on them.... they might get bent sometimes but can be straightened in seconds.   As for storing them, you're right, it's a pain.... similar to backpack blowers I reckon.

  • I store two sprayers at the side door of the van one above the other. They are fixed to storage hooks on the end of my shelf unit, and the lances clip into these https://www.ebay.com/itm/191973938535

    I've put tennis balls over the nozzles to stop drips and also protect them. You've got to be organised in this game!

    • if you've the "anvil" type nozzles, an easier and less bulky way to protect them is to push a short length of fuel pipe over them.  Saves the kids getting cross when you cut up their tennis balls :)

    I changed the plastic lances over to the brass ones and never had a problem since, also make sure the lance is pushed through the loop at the top of the sprayer so the nozzle does not rub along the floor.

    Tie wrap a piece of guttering down-pipe longer than the lance vertically just inside the side door by the wheel arch and slot the lance in to it, with the sprayer body bungee strapped to a corner. Cost effective, convenient and protects the nozzle.
