    Leaks and bad expensive gaskets

    By James on 09/09/2016

    Verified Purchase

    Ive been exterminating for over 30 years. Its been almost 10 years since I used a Birchmeier and now i remember why, after just a little bit of use I had chemicals running down my back . Pump leaks , wand leaks, I called Domyownpestcontrol and the gaskets are ridiculous , i called Birchmeier and they said they would ship me some over a month ago which didn't come.

    Leaks on back

    By The on 08/19/2017

    These sprayers are overpriced vintage technology. Eventually the brass nut in the back loosens and it will leak on your back. I've had 4 of these units over the years and they have all eventually leaked. They're battery operated backpacks for half the price that work with no pumping.

    You’ll be sorry

    By Robert on 06/15/2018

    Verified Purchase

    I have purchased nine Birchmeier backpacks, five of which have been in the last year. Birchmeier is well aware of a major defect: leaky seals. If you were thinking that you will beat the odds and get a backpack that doesn’t blow out on you I think you’re seriously fooling yourself. More than a decade ago this brand was very reputable but somewhere, some bean counter in the top office decided to save a whole dollar by downgrading the seals. Trust me when I say you’re going to be replacing parts all over the place and seal kits are incredibly expensive. DONT DO IT. And this is coming from a guy who, to date, in 2018 has dropped $1500 on this brand.
