Menda bottles

From: Simon Moore <simon.moore>

I am having problems with Menda bottles--the sort that you push down
on the lid and a small amount of solvent comes into the dish-like
receptacle under the hinged cover.  After a few months they stop
working.  No change in the bottle as such but no fluid appears in
the little dish even if you pump it 100 times.  I have taken out the
spring clip on the metal tube underneath to see if I could trace the
problem, but that is as far as I could get. They are useful when
they work and I have already sent several back to the UK agent for

Is anyone else having similar problems? Any answers to the problem
would be greatly appreciated.
