Mark I bought the one you have (
http://amazon.com/gp/product/…)
and it does the trick. Here is my customer review:
-  thanks to its fine rose, my seedlings now get uniformly wet, and no
longer does planting mix flood over the side of the flats when I water
-  the shape and location of the fill hole allow it to fill fast from a
pond, without getting my arm wet
-  one minor complaint however is that I would have preferred a bigger can
... because while I am prepared to induce a muscle cramp lugging a heavy
can around, I hate having to make extra trips to draw water*

(*this is due to an inherited medical condition, called "stubbornness",
which experts believe is passed on the Y chromosome)
