I'm glad I purchased this sprayer
By Yuko on 05/01/2011
This sprayer is well made, sturdy, and very easy to use. This is my first time purchasing a sprayer, and I'm glad I saw it on the DoMyOwnPestControl.com website. I bought a one-gallon sprayer. I really like it. I use it for spraying weeds in my yards. It is fun going around with this sprayer because it is easy to control the handle and the nob. It made my job so much easier. I may purchase a two-gallon sprayer next time for a pest control. The product is worthwhile the price.
Good durable sprayer
By Dave on 05/19/2011
I learned a while ago to not cheap out when buying a sprayer. The money you save buying something for twenty bucks with plastic parts and a plastic spray nozzle is money wasted. The Chapin Premier Sprayer I recently ordered was super easy to assemble and use. I immediately put it to work spraying insecticide for two solid hours without a single clogging issue, or other malfunction.

After getting frustrated with the plastic wand sprayers not working after using them a few times, I purchased this sprayer. I am glad, I did as the spray control was very easily adjustable and the trigger was comfortable to use. I purchased this sprayer to put a pest barrier of Talstar on the entire perimeter of my house. I highly recommend this sprayer as this is one for long term usage, not like the ones at the big box hardware stores.
Chapin Premier 1 Gallon Sprayer.
By Debra on 07/22/2011
A great sprayer and worth every penny. The hose is made of a ribbed hard rubber. The nossels are all metal and easy to use. The price was great because you get a quality product that with care will last for years. I ordered my product and two days later it was here. Loved it.
Excellent professional quality sprayer
By Rick on 07/28/2011
This sprayer is great. If you are sick of those plastic pumps that fall apart or the plastic spray wands that don't work worth a c@%&* spend a little extras money and get one of these. It contains a lot of metal parts in the pump and the whole wand is metal. Highly recommended!!!
Chapin Premier Sprayer- 1 gal.
By John on 07/31/2011
Though the sprayer itself is very good, and well constructed, the spray nozzle is not precise enough to produce a narrow and fine spray. It sprays either too broad or too much a stream. Mfgr. could fix this quickly with some effort. Hardware store sprayers can do better, though may not have the quality construction.
Quality sprayer, durable parts
By Alex on 08/11/2011
Although you spend a bit more for the sprayer, it is worth it. The large opening facilitates filling, and the quality parts seem like they'll last long. The pressure release is a great feature. Haven't seen an internal "fill line" but its easy in general as it only holds 1 gallon. Spray is well placed, and even with the included nozzle.

works great...makes spraying super easy!
By Rachel on 08/25/2011
Great option when you do your own pest control
By Rachel on 08/25/2011
This makes spraying so much easier! The only thing is that the nozzle spray fans out in a circle. Outside this doesn't matter much...but I'm concerned about the inside and getting pesticide everywhere b/c it will take longer to dry inside. But still much better than using a spray bottle.
Great Sprayer for the Money
By Shane on 09/07/2011
This sprayer works exactly like I expected it to. No drips from the wand when the handle wasn't depressed. Good pattern of spray from the brass nozzle. Thick but flexible hose as well as a wide mouth for filling. My only complaint about it is that the nipple of the wand does not extend enough to match the length of the handle. So it feels like you use the hose to squeeze the handle- not problematic just seems like a weak point for excess wear to occur. It is obviously not a huge deal I still gave 5 stars.
Best Sprayer I have ever used!

Chapin Premier Sprayer
By Jim on 11/04/2011
The unit is solid and well built. But as others have said, the spray pattern control is bad. The spray comes out very heavy regardless of the adjustment (soak the floor if your not careful). It goes from full fan to stream and difficult to get anything in between.
10x performance for 2.5x price
By John on 11/28/2011
I've had 2 pump sprayers that you buy for $20 at the local hardware store. They always leak at the seal - you can hear them hissing as you walk around. The Chapin sprayer is obviously high-quality construction. The O-ring seal is a much better design than the cheapo sprayers. The wand is all metal construction. No leaks; just fast, reliable application. Well worth the money. Flow cannot be reduced to a mist. If you want to spray, buy this product. If you want to mist, buy another product or try to modify this one.
By Mark on 12/14/2011
This is NOT your garden-variety poly sprayer. It has a substantial feel. The pump handle is metal. The pressure relief valve is a great feature to have. The only negative thing I have to say is that I don't care for the nozzle. I can't get the spray pattern adjusted to suit me.
By Andyg on 03/17/2012
This sprayer is so far beyond the cheap ones you get in stores. The lid is very heavy duty, as well as the pump, handle, and everything else. The tank is thick as well, thick enough to where you can't visually see the level of the liquid inside. Before I used it I put a flashlight up to the 1gal and 1/2gal marks on the outside, then used a Sharpie to put a mark at the dot of light on the inside. The wand is very high quality, as well as the hose and tip. For indoor use spraying Talstar I just used a straight stream, low pressure, and light pressure on the trigger. This will surely be the last 1gal sprayer I ever use, especially since every o-ring and hard part can be purchased as replacement parts.
By Alan on 03/17/2012
Item arrived with the weed killer, was easy to assemble and easy to use. It's especially nice to have the automatic function on the wand so you don't have to keep the spray trigger manually depressed. Do wish it would have come with a strap or something that you could put on your shoulder, but then again I'm just being lazy
Good quality sprayer - heavy stream
By Erin on 04/02/2012
Purchased because I was tired of the cheap ones clogging and failing. Assembly was easy, but took some care to eliminate leaking. Appears to be high quality and well balanced. Easy to load, pump, carry, and clean. Spray is not as fine as I believe a household poison sprayer should be. It will throw a thick stream quite a ways: good for spraying corners of the attic and under gutters, but would not spray a fine mist as I desired for inside baseboards. It is acceptable, but not as good as I believe a $50 should be. Overall, I would probably still purchase again.
would buy again

Chapin 1 gal

An exceptional product! What a treat!
By Nancy on 05/28/2012
I bought this sprayer along with a bottle of pesticide concentrate. (kudo's to DMOPC for the icon on the pesticide page suggesting to the customer that they may need one!) This is a great sprayer. The canister, the pumping handle, and the hose to canister connecting part are all made from a very heavy duty, thick plastic. The connecting plastic piece (for the hose) has well defined threads inside the piece for screwing it together quickly and tightly. The hose is a high grade thick rubber with a very tight, thick steel clamp where it meets the hand trigger. (you can see it in the product picture) The wand, the hand held trigger, and the spray tip are all metal as well. Not cheap plastic. The hand trigger can be manipulated to position itself allowing a continuous spray. I wasn't familiar enough with spraying to use it, but for all outside work, and for the pro's, thats a nice feature for avoiding hand cramping. There are two (2) things worth mentioning that could be perceived as negatives. The canister on the INSIDE does NOT have fill level markings. Those markings are on the outside, so you have to judge the fill level yourself on the inside from/with the markings on the outside. I did not care for that. This is not a big deal, but yes, because of the metal connections on the wand, and the spray tip, they can loosen easily. I had to stop and tighten the connections several times as I sprayed. Overall, this is a SOLID product! And knock on wood, I can imagine with its great construction that this will last a lifetime. That is an awesome thing when so many things you buy nowadays are just so flimsy and cheap. Thank you big time DMOPC, and Chapin for providing a high quality product! I will never buy pest control products anywhere else. You have a customer for life!
Easy to use sprayer

CHAPIN PREMIER 1 GALLON
By Carleigh on 06/18/2012
I bought this and this is really all you need to spray. The metal wands work a lot better than the plastic. The plastic ones are ok but they dont last as long. They are just cheap. So settle for this one. It will last forever. The tip on it is a cone shaped sprayer, which is all you need. Which means it comes out in a circular motion when you spray. It also streams out if you need to get into cracks or crevices. You can buy the fan sprayer separately if that is what you want or need. All in all this helps out in spraying the outside area that you need to spray. Makes it so simple. Not hard to use. Easy directions.
By John on 07/25/2012
super fast shipping. You wont find a cheaper price on the web unless the seller has very few reviews. The tank is very high quality and worth every cent. If you plan on using a tank sprayer more than once, then don't skimp on quality. If you plan on buying 3/4 gal of Talstar pro then your going to need a tank sprayer that will last for @90 treatments - an inexpensive tank sprayer is not designed for that kind of usage.
