I had one of these for 10 years, before I bought this one. I had forgot the previous one on the ground behind my truck & had driven over it :_( The current model is even BETTER than my last one. It has a pressure gauge on the handle and the pressure stays constant throughout the spraying process. So the application of chemicals is even and consistent. That results in a more economic use of the chemicals. It also has an internal pressure adjustment, to set the maximum PSI delivered to the tank. And since the piston is separate from the chemical tank, the o-rings and seals last longer (no chemical attack). Best yet - Do My Own Pest Control price matched the best price that I found on the web!
Assembly was easy. I had taken adjustments in three steps. This was the first time I ever used a back pack, (empty, half then full). Very comfortable and easy to use. Was able to spray at a steady flow for inside the house. Then I adjusted the nozzle to spray 25 feet into the face aboard, we HAD carpenter bees. No more bees. An exterminator wanted $700.00 just to get rid of the bees. Now for 20% of that cost I have enough fire power to treat my home (inside and out) and all the trees and shrubs for the next five years and still be ahead of the game.
I purchased my Chapin Tree/Turf Pro Backpack Sprayer when my pump sprayer quit on me. I had never used a backpack sprayer before but always wanted to try one. I have three acres with several fence rows to maintain and wow what a difference. The Chapin Tree/Turf Pro is great and saves me time stopping to pump. It is ideal for larger jobs holding four gallons of liquid and is much easier on the back than a shoulder strap sprayer. It also comes with various nozzles for different spray patterns and the pressure can be adjusted for higher spraying. The only thing I have a problem with is getting it on my back. I'm in my 60's and not as agile as I once was.
Chapin 62000 Sprayer, should have had it years ago

The tank has been great. Good quality. I have a bad back and the hip strap takes the weight off of your back. Pressure stays constant which makes application faster and easy. Brass wand is much nicer that my old plastic one since it is ridged. I have several acres and it has saved me lots of time over the small hand held tank that I have always used. It exposes you to less to the chemicals because you have to fill it less often than a small tank. Free shipping was nice with the tracking.
How far or high does the Pro BackPack Sprayer spray (as far as pressure)? Will it reach the roof?
The Chapin Tree/Turf Pro Backpack sprayer is like any other hand pump sprayer, it typically will only reach about 10+ feet under pressure. Probably not enough to reach your roof line. We do carry another sprayer called a Slide Pump Sprayer that will reach up to 30 feet or more. There is a video on the slide pump sprayer page that shows it in action so you can see how it works. The slide pump sprayer is the only type of non gas or electric sprayer that will reach that far.
What is the history of leaks for the backpack sprayer?
We have had no complaints about leaking on the Chapin Tree/Turf Pro BackPack Sprayer (#62000). If for some reason you do have an issue with a Chapin sprayer you purchase from us, Chapin will stand behind their products 100% and they offer really great customer service and trouble shooting to all of our customers.
