    Out of interest, do you take the handle apart when spraying it?

    I did, since it allows you to get a better coverage in all those hard to reach places

    Agree with Geoff, it's much easier and you get better coverage. Plus the handles are really easy to take apart. Give it a 3yr old and it will be apart in 5 mins
