I was applying boracare on a timber frame and so wanted a nice wide fan, 6" or 8" wide. This did the trick for me. Glad I got it when I bought the sprayer, based on other comments here. I think it paid for itself the first day in terms of helping me make the most efficient use of the expensive product I was applying.
I Purchased the Fan spray nozzle last month and used it for the 1st time today , the mist covered the area that i wanted to and i was impressed with its performance and made of good quality , would recommend this product
Purchased the 1 gal Chapin sprayer, then realized it only came with a cone spray nozzle. So I ordered the fan spray nozzle. PERFECT pattern for the exterior of my home; wanted to spray 2 - 2 1/2 feet up the side, and 2 - 2 1/2 feet out onto the grass in order to set a good perimeter.
Used Equal Lamda and Nyguard IGR in combo to knock em out, and set my perimeter. Sprayed interior first, then waited a day to allow any survivors to exit. Then sprayed the crawlspace under the home and the foundation / walls and perimeter surrounding grass. 24 hours later, found absolutely no live spiders, ants, etc in home or kennel area (I am ops mgr of a boarding facility). Very happy with the spray pattern of this nozzle.
I'd like to rate this at 2.5 stars.
This is an "ok" tip for an "ok" sprayer. For any commercial use, it's absolutely unacceptable. I loved this tip and the sprayer for about a month. Then I realized the application rate was really too high, and the fan pattern was too UNEVEN for professional work. It got the job done, but it really wasn't the greatest. I eventually purchased a professional B&G sprayer, and realized what an INSANE difference there was. I will NEVER be able to back to a cheap sprayer+tip unless I'm desperate.
