Yes Pete , I have used the 'el-cheapo' garden squirt bottles with mixed success, some would not pump and others would, even of the same type/brand. A couple have lasted a long time the rest gave up after a few months of pushing against high boiler pressure. I re-used the brass fitting from a previous 'proper' one that failed to connect to the tubing.
One thing to note was you had to prime some first by putting a finger over the delivery tube and pump quickly a few times then taking your finger off then they pump properly. When you find one that works keep it and give the others away. I purchased a three pack for the price of one and got one that works with the others used as a fire mist spray. But I think a double the price one that works first off might be a better investment as it should last longer?
