Instructions for Use:
Fill the sprayer tank half full with water.
Add the recommended amount of insecticide concentrate (make sure to read the product label for the insecticide you want to use).
Fill the sprayer tank the rest of the way full with water to make one gallon, close the lid firmly, and agitate the tank to make sure the insecticde/water solution is mixed well.
Pump the tank to pressurize it by using the pump handle and apply the insecticide using the wand.
The spray nozzle on the wand can be adjusted to allow for wide or narrow spray patterns.
This container got the job done...and I had my hand in it's use, plus my handyman's help in setting this up. However, my handyman questioned the longevity of this product. The manufacturing of this pump sprayer disappointed him. Running a comparison with this sprayer and one he had from home depot, which cost $5.00 more: he wanted the handle of this pump to not leak air after the first use. The seal around the opening and the threading hissed air. The black tubing from the container bent and pinched off easily, in his opinion: he wanted to see a more pliable tubing. The "fan spray" did not spray in a fan configuration.
The pump sprayer makes application so easy. My husband didn't want me to purchase it with our last order and said he could find something else to use that would be cheaper. I ordered it anyway, he used it and realized it was perfect especially for the price. He had looked around and found nothing that compared to the value, durability; and the others couldn't guarantee sprayers durability with the use of chemicals. You won't be disappointed especially for the price, excellent value.
I really like the idea that this sprayer has a nice full fan pattern. It really does a great job of applying the home barrier. Also, it pumps out every drop w/o leaving a residue in the tank. I've sprayed both our home and our daughter's place.
Does the Chapin pump sprayer (20000) sprayer have a high pressure relief valve?
I was looking at the sprayers that you have to offer so I could compare them to see which one would be perfect for the task I need to do, and I noticed that it did not mention anything about having a high pressure auto/manual relief valve.
No, the basic Chapin sprayer #20000 does not have a pressure relief valve. Only the Premier sprayers, models #21200 and #21210 come with a pressure relief valve.
Does this sprayer allow for a fan mist or is the fan mode more of a no pressure sprinkle?
I need this to spray a light mist to cover ceilings and walls with The Demon WP product for roach control. Thank you!
The Chapin one gallon sprayer will give an actual broad mist when the nozzle is in that position. However, please note that no spray should ever be used as a broadcast spray on ceilings and walls or over your head for safety reasons, and Demon is specifically designed for baseboard and crack and crevice treatments only. You not only would be using the product against the label instructions, but you risk having the spray come back on yourself or other areas of the room that you wouldn't want the product to be on. A better application for roaches in high areas would be a bait gel. You can find the proper techniques for treating all areas of a home or business for roaches in our article here: How to Get Rid of Roaches.
Can you use Chapin 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer (#20000) with the Demon WP?
Yes. Demon WP can be used in the Chapin 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer (#20000). We recommend filling the sprayer with 1/2 gallon of warm water, add the Demon WP and let it sit in the water for about 5 minutes. Stir/agitate the mixture, then add the remaining water and agitate mixture again. It is important to remember that Demon WP will not truly dissolve into the water so the mixture will need to be agitated frequently to avoid clogging your sprayer.
To fill the sprayer you will turn the handle attached to the pump counterclockwise and remove it, insert the water and product you are using, and re-screw the pump back in by turning the handle clockwise until tight.
