Dial N Spray - Set it and forget it!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Always the right concentration, easy to use with Ortho products

Cons:Some non-ortho products might not have the dial settings.

The Bottom Line: If you need to spray chemicals and use Ortho products, then the Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer is the way to go.


I don't generally apply chemicals to my lawn. I have a dog and kids and don't like the idea of contaminating the lawn. But sometimes, the weeds get out of control and I have to use some weed killer. In this case, Weed-B-Gone and applied with the Ortho Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer. Does the sprayer do the job? Does it make applying the stuff easier?

Read on, dear reader...

•• What it is ••
The Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer is a product used to mix water with chemicals and spray them on your lawn or garden.

•• Features and Commentary ••
The first thing to do when using this, is to look at the directions on the chemical you want to spray. This will tell you how much to put in the reservoir. The reservoir is a large tank that sits on the bottom of the sprayer. It can hold a pint or so. I've never had a situation where I needed to fill this tank. At most I use a few ounces for my entire lawn. How does a few ounces cover my lawn?

I'll tell you!

The point of the Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer is that it accurately mixes the right combination of chemical and water. On Ortho products (and many others) the instructions will tell you to put X ounces of chemical into the reservoir and set the dial on top to a specific setting. This is the "dial" in the name of the product. You turn the dial depending on what the instructions tell you and what level of concentration you want. Then you attach the sprayer to the end of your hose and tighten it. The unit is all plastic, but the seal has always been tight, even after a few years of use.

When you use the Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer, you might expect the tank to fill with water. But it doesn't. Only the amount of chemical you put in remains. And that depletes at a rate determined by the setting on the dial. This assures that the chemical is never diluted over time and retains the proper amount of concentration. To spray the stuff, simply press the trigger, much like a normal hose end sprayer. The trigger is firm and never leaks. Again, remember this thing is plastic so I wouldn't expect a super high quality product. But the sprayer has never leaked.

While there's no front end nozzle to adjust the pattern of the sprayer, there really isn't need for one. This sprayer has a single application - to spread the mixture evenly over larger spaces. Thus, the spray pattern is a flat plane at a lowered angle. This sprays the mixture wide and at just the right downward angle.

The sprayer is quite easy to use and sprays a nice even coating over a fairly good sized lawn. You'll need to keep an eye on the level in the tank and since the tank is not very clear, it might be tough to tell how much liquid you have in there if the liquid isn't dark. A minor annoyance, but something to be wary of.

•• Conclusion ••
If you need to spray chemicals and use Ortho products, then the Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer is the way to go.
