I don't know how many sprayers I've thrown in the trash after two or three uses. Anything sold at the hydro stores is garbage, Lowes, Hone Depot, ACE all carry the same garbage as well. I am beyond frustrated with this. My problem is that they clog a dozen times when trying to spray anything other than plain water. Haven't been able to do a good foliar in a while. Have three of them that I throw at the wall before I give up. Fucking not in a good mood anymore today.

Yup once you put anything that's not just plain water they don't seem to last maybe look into commercial type for maybe pesticides something made to handle chemicals, maybe grainger has something!

I use a one gallon sprayer thats not to commercial, and just enough to keep me content, i got mine off Amazon.com but i seen the same one at home depot for 10 bucks or so. Its a pressurized sprayer. Give it 10 20 pumps you can spray a half gallon in one shot.
BOL!
Happy farmin

Industrial concrete sprayer. They make larger and smaller sizes other than 3.5 gallon.
This will work as far as a pump sprayer. Replaceable parts and seals.

  • Chapin Xtreme 3.5 Gallon Industrial Concrete Open Head Sprayer 19049 $137.10
  • Chapin Brass Nozzle Carded $7.33
  • Chapin 6-7703 24-Inch Industrial Brass Male Extension $15.48
Otherwise if you want a powered sprayer, get a shurflo pump and wand, get a bucket or tank and then can DIY a powered sprayer.
Shurflo disphram pump will be safer on any microbes in teas you are spraying. I you need more information on how to DIY it, please ask.

this is what we use on the job and my guys are hard on shit.but these are easy to take apart and clean for the money.i can and have left roundup in them for months and they still work fine if you take off the nozzle and clean it.

the solo brand sprayers are maybe a tad better but they aint cheap and those roundup sprayers are a real close second.

What he said, but I'll add mine is a Graco Magnum airless sprayer. Get the one with the hook and wheels for 5 gal bucket and a 50 ft hose and it'll cover my whole 2000 sq ft grow moving it twice. And never pumping, and nothing on my acing back.

I like the little rolling rechargeable 5gal sprayer I got from Tractor Supply. Now it's something like $30, and I paid closer to a C-note (so I'm pissed, but hey).

For outdoors I like the Northern Tool 26gal tank sprayer that mounts onto the back of the quadrunner. I did have to add more hose to it, so I could reach garden areas I can't actually get the quad to.
 
Solo makes good sprayers, you can sometimes find them at hardware stores/garden supply places. Also check Northern Tool's website.

I'd go with rainmakers from the hydro store, I've broken one nozzle in the past six months otherwise no problems spraying tea or humics. Clean them every time though or you'll run into problems guaranteed.

or just get an atomizer.

Hey @leadsled ... I hate to ask, but I just got an air compressor to do power foliar... are these the parts you'd recommend for one? Sorry to bring up an old thread. Really need to get on better foliar.... the hand pump ones just suck and Im done with them...

Those parts are for the chapin concrete sprayer.
You will need to order a different wand to hook up to a compressor.
The shurflo pump is a diapharm pump that does not harm the biology when used. Can hook up to a 12v battery and then use when you are off grid. Check out biologicsystems for the parts.
