No Lyn, that's the one I can work. The new one is lime green.
I had this reply from the manufacturer -
Thank you for your email regarding a bottle of Provado Vine Weevil Killer 2 which are now filled into the easy dose bottles. Many of our concentrate pesticides are assigned to this bottle design. These bottles have a two way valve which should allow liquid to run into and out of the dosing chamber. With the desired volume of liquid in the dosing chamber the top can be removed and by tilting the bottle into the sprayer, allowing the liquid to flow from the dosing chamber into the waiting receptacle.
A clever design, if, in my view, over complicated and a bit unnecessary for the average consumer. From your description it sounds as if the valves aren’t lined up correctly which is restricting the flow of liquid either into the dosing chamber or from the dosing chamber.
We are receiving ‘mixed reviews’ on these bottles and last year we had a similar comment to the one you posted. Already these bottles are used for a large proportion of our liquid concentrates and it is not unreasonable to have a very small proportion of these complicated bottles that don’t function as expected – although this is of course not the expected outcome. I thank you for taking the time to let me know of your recent experience and I will forward your email to the department involved with the use of these easy dose bottles for their reference.
