    Q
    Does is drip/leak?
    Almost every sprayer i've had leaks or drips chemicals in my trailer. Makes cleaning out the trailer rather pointless. Will this one leak if I leave chemical sitting in it, and it sitting in my trailer? Thanks!
    A
    You cannot store chemicals in sprayers as it will weaken the gaskets and other portions of the sprayers and cause leaking. Leaving chemicals in sprayers for more than 24 hours at a time will also void any and all warranties offered by the manufacturers. For short term use (for a few hours) stored product in the sprayer should not leak out as long as the sprayer is kept upright.

    Q
    How do you add pressure to the backpack sprayer?
    Most sprayers have the pump on the lid.
    A
    Hand held sprayers have the pump on the lid that you hold.  If you notice in the picture there is a rod that extends from the bottom of the pack.  On backpack sprayers since you where it on your back, the rod extends out from your side and you pump the rod up and down to pressurize the tank.
