There is a possibility that this could be caused by an air lock. To remove the airlock:
1. Place product over a sink
2. Turn the trigger to the ‘Off’ position
3. Pull back the trigger, then release
4. Repeat the pumping action slowly
5. Turn the trigger to the ‘On’ position
6. This should release any air that has been trapped in the tube and allow the product to work.
If it does still not work after this process, please contact our customer service team:www.dettol.co.uk UK- PO Box 4044 Slough SL1 ONS 08457697079
