Favorite Pump Sprayer

What’s your favorite sprayer? The ones we use are no longer being made. We keep 6 pump sprayers on the trailer. 2 for acids, 2 for bleach and 2 for degreaser.

I just discovered this sprayer at the end of summer. I bought it from a local concrete finishing supplier for applying an acrylic concrete sealant to an exposed aggregate driveway. I now use this for every application of my business. It’s great for awnings and I love it for getting a strong SH mix on small stucco areas or concrete. I pump it 10-15 times and it lasts for a long time. Rarely need to re pump to gain pressure. It has interchangeable tips similar to the pressure washer but not QCs. An is rated for .5 GPM also available to get 1 GPM. Had a quality hose and trigger. I went through 3 cheap sprayers this year and decided to spend some. Obey on a good one. Glad I did. This also has rebuild kits available so you just replace the gaskets after they wear out.

Pump sprayers are a disposable item to me. More so when used for staining.

round up one gallon buy it at lowes return when they stop working and get a free one. basically buy one for life and get free replacement. they work great for a little whie

I got three carcasses at my storage space. They last about a week for me. They used to sell replacement hose and sprayer assembly that were way better than the ones that came with the sprayers. I guess they would rather sell a bunch of crap, over and over again, than a quality product.

Our buy six or eight at a time and throw them away one at a time when they fail. Which they surely will do.

Then go buy another cart full.

We went to the local masonry supply house one year and loaded up on almost $500.00 worth of good pump sprayers. By the end of the year, we were back at the Home Depot place buying Round Up sprayers by the cart load.

Good to know Tim! I’m interested to see how long this one lasts. It was $180 so considerably more expensive than the homo depo ones. It puts out high volume and I love that part over the cheapy cheapy ones. I rinse mine out after every use because I noticed some corrosion starting on the inside.

We pitched that exact unit this summer. It was only a couple of months old and you are correct, it sprays like nobodies business.

It rusted through in the bottom. Maybe after a 12 hour day, it’s just too big a pain to rinse them out.

We use a “12v pump up” for anything more than small spot spraying.

I changed to a homemade system. Keep my chems in separate 5vers add the lid with electric pump and get it done. Switch lid to water 5ver when done and rinse. Replacement pump only $50, but have yet to replace it.

I like that idea. We used a setup like that when I stained decks back in the day. Have you found a really small, portable battery to run it?

I had a old drill that didn’t work. I gutted it and use it for quick change batteries. I have run it for 2 hours without it going dead.

Hey guys I found this at wallmart, it has a 5yr warranty and they approve the use of bleach with it. It was about $20.

I have been having decent luck with Chapin bleach pump sprayer

I just picked up a couple of the two gallon sprayers from walmart the other day. You must live in California or Canada because they’re only $12 here though. :grinning: I’ve been using the one gallon size for oxalic, one for degreaser, and another for sh since the beginning of the season. They spray for a good amount of time with little pumping or at least compared to other cheap sprayers I have owned in the past. The one gallon only has a 2 year warranty but for $6 they’re basically throw away. I especially like the pressure release valve on the side.

I also have the Chapin sprayer that Surface Therapy mentioned. It’s specifically made for bleach and have been using it since last summer. I’ve had sh in it the whole time and it still works fine. It has brown seals so I assume they’re viton.
