    Q
    How do I use Talstar P with the Chapin Liquid Hose End Sprayer 6005?
    I purchased Talstar P with a 2 gallon sprayer which works great, but I think this would be better for the front and back of my home. Would I just add 1oz of Talstar P to the container set the dial to 1oz and let the hose do the rest? Does the sprayer shut off when the chemical has all been used?
    A
    You would add Talstar to the Chapin Liquid Hose End Sprayer and set the dial to 1 oz, hook up to the hose and spray the desired area. If you need to treat a 4,000 sq ft area you would add 4 oz of Talstar P to the reservoir and spray the area until the reservoir was empty.

    Q
    Same sprayer for weed control/ fertilizer and pesticides?
    Can I use the the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose End Sprayer #6005 interchangeably for lawn fertilizers/weed control AND pesticides if I clean it out in between? Or do I need 2 separate sprayers? One for pesticides and one for lawn fertilizer/weed control?
    A
    You do not want to use the  Chapin Wet / Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005 or any other sprayer for applying weed control and pesticides. You want seperate sprayers.

    Q
    How far does the Hose-End Sprayer treat?
    A
    The Chapin Hose End Sprayer, like any hose end sprayer all depends on the pressure behind the hose.  Typically it would only go 5 to 10 feet.  If you are looking for a sprayer that reaches beyond that, we do sell the Chapin Slide Pump Sprayer, which can reach up to 30 feet or more.

    Q
    Chapin 6005 with herbicides
    You say you don't usually recommend this sprayer for use with herbicides but yet you list it as a recommended/needed product on the herbicide page. (?) I'm sure I can't physically use a pump hand sprayer as I would be spraying the entire lawn and would really like to use a hose end sprayer. Do you recommend this for Over the Top II Grass Killer or not?
    A
    You most certainly can use the Chapin Wet / Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005 to apply herbicides. We are jsut concerned that the application may not be as precise.

    Q
    can you put herbicides for lawns in this sprayer?
    A
    You can put herbicides in the hose end sprayer as long as the usage rate can be calibrated on the sprayer. We however do not usually recommend using herbicides in hose end sprayers because it can be tough to accurately gauge how much product you sprayed and many herbicides demand you be precise with the application or you could experience damage to desirable plants or grasses.

  • Asked by William from Cordova

    Q
    What do the numbers on the dial mean on the Chapin Wet / Dry Hose end sprayer?
    I want to apply 1oz per 1000 square feet. I don't see a #1. Could you explain how to use the dial correctly?
    A

    The numbers on the top dial indicate how much water you will apply with the concentrate that you put into the sprayer reservoir. The larger numbers are in Liters, and the smaller number is in Gallons.

     

    First, you need to determine how many gallons of water you will be using. To find out how many gallons of water you need to use you will calculate the square footage of the area to be treated (Most insecticides recommend 1 gallon of mixed solution 1,000 sq feet). For instance, if you have a 6,000 square foot yard that you plan on treating then you would need to multiply 6 x 1 which equals 6 – You would then add 6 oz of Demand CS to the reservoir. Once you add the desired amount of insecticide to the reservoir, then you would add water to the line selected (6 gallon line mark on the reservoir). You would then set the dial on the top of the Chapin Hose End Sprayer to 6 gallons. Do not turn water on when adjusting the spray nozzle. Next, select the desired spray pattern and then spray until the reservoir is empty.

  • Asked by Andy from Ny
    07/09/2014
    Q
    What dial setting is used to get a 1% mixture using a liquid herbicide in the 6005?
    A
    You did not mention what herbicide you are trying to use in the Chapin Hose Wet/Dry Hose-End Sprayer so we are unable to accurately answer your question.  You can put herbicides in the hose end sprayer as long as the usage rate can be calibrated on the sprayer to what the herbicide product label states, specifically something like 1 oz per gallon.  Most herbicides do not give a rate like this and state amount of product per 1000 sqft and the amount of water you use is not important or set as the water only acts as a carrier.  For this reason we do not usually recommend using herbicides in hose end sprayers because it can be tough to accurately gauge how much product you sprayed and many herbicides demand you be precise with the application or you could experience damage to desirable plants or grasses.

    Q
    What is the best product for mosquitoes?
    How can I use the product in a hose end sprayer? Ratio?
    A
    Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you can use in a hose end sprayer at a 1 oz of product per gallon water per 1,000 sq ft ratio. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or property you are trying to provide relief at.  It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where the mosquitoes hang out.  It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.

  • Asked by Tim from Honey Brook, Pa
    06/05/2016
    Q
    Will the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005 work to apply a ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part Spray and Forget?
    I would like to use the Chapin Sprayer #6005 to spray Spray and Forget on my house in the ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part Spray and Forget. Will this work for this application?
    A

    It would be tough to translate an application ratio like that with any hose-end sprayer, including the Chapin 6005 Hose-End Sprayer. You would need to figure out how much total solution you need and then work backwards to get the correct amount of product for the total volume of water that you plan to use. The minimum amount of water that the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose-End Sprayer is designed to use on any application is 3 gallons. So if you had 3 gallons of water (384 ounces), then you would need 76.8 ounces of your concentrate using a 5:1 ratio, which is too much to fit into the reservoir of this sprayer. We would suggest using a hand pump sprayer such as the Chapin Premier 1 gallon Sprayer 21210XP so that you have more control over exactly how much solution and water you are using.

    Q
    I see example calculation of .25ml/Liter. How does that become 110ml for 57Liters?
    A

    Let's say you want to make and spray 57 liters/15 gallons of properly mixed product. The manufacturer’s label tells you to use .25 milliliter per liter/one ounce per gallon, you pour 110 milliliters/15 ounces of product into the jar. Then you pour water into the jar until the combined liquid level reaches the 57 liter/15 gallon mark which is on the jar. Put sprayer on the jar and be sure the dial is on the correct liter/gallon setting. When the sprayer is empty, you have sprayed 57 liters/15 gallons of properly mixed product.

  • Asked by Steven from Riverside, Nj
    08/22/2015
    Q
    How do I use the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005 with Bonide Sedge Ender concentrate?
    How much of the liquid do I pour into the jar for 2000 sq ft, and do I add water to it? What setting do I set the sprayer to for bluegrass?
    A

    For cool-season turf, such as bluegrass, you should use 2.75 ounces of Bonide Sedge Ender concentrate per 1,000 square feet in ample water to cover the area. If you have 2,000 square feet to cover, we would recommend at least using the 3 Gallon mark and top setting for the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005. You will first put the concentrate into the sprayer reservoir: 5.5 ounces for 2,000 square feet. Then, you should add water until the liquid in the sprayer reaches the line matching the total number of gallons of water you want to apply. On the top of the sprayer, adjust the nozzle to match the same total number of gallons of water you want to apply.

    If you have further questions, you may reach our Customer Service Staff at 866-581-7378 M-F 9a-5p EST.

    When I spray a liquid fungicide, the level of solution is not going down. How can I fix this on the Chapin Wet / Dry Hose-End Sprayer?
    I already tried spraying the underside of the lid and moving the quantity lever back and forth from 3 to 21 but it's still not sucking out the solution, except for about a second when I first start to spray.

    Q
    Is Talstar P ok to mix at 3 oz per gallon of water to treat Wasps using the Chapin/Wet Dry Hose End Sprayer #6005?
    Hello my bug guy suggested using telstar p at 3oz per gal. For wasp control, understanding that results are poor using this product for digger wasp I'm left with very little options. I've been using now for 3yrs and we seem to be getting ahead of them finally. Each year we have had less. I've tried other sprayers but this one has the best spray pattern.
    A

    The Chapin Wet / Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005 is a good product for broadcasting lawn areas when a hand pump sprayer is not available or preferred.  Talstar P is labeled for wasps but is only to be mixed at 1oz per gallon of water per the product label. Wasps need to be treating in the late evening when the wasps will be most likely in the nest resting. You will need to spray the opening of the nest directly or the burrow holes. If you have been using Talstar P for 3 years, it would be time to rotate to another insecticide. Tempo Ultra SC would be a good rotation product and works great for Wasps, Hornets, Bees, etc.

    Q
    How can I set the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose-End Sprayer at a rate of 1 oz per gallon of water?
    I have different areas to fertilize with Neptune. I need simple answer on dial setting for 1oz/gallon. I will refill container when necessary. Help! I'm confused on setting for the Chapin wet/dry Hose-End Sprayer.
    A

    Unfortunately, there is no way to set the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose-End Sprayer easily to 1 oz per gallon of water. You will have to read the label of the product you want to use and see how many gallons you'll need per the square footage you need to treat. The video on the product page can help better understand the setting method or you can contact Chapin at (800) 950-4458.

    Q
    Can the Chapin Wet / Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005 be used to mix the Bifen XTS for flea control?
    I need to know the correct amount of Bifen XTS to put in the reservoir and the chapin sprayer setting to cover a 1000sq ft area for fleas
    A

    You will add .32 fl. oz of Bifen XTS per gallon of water. For six gallons, you will use 1.92 fl. oz. of product, fill the reservoir up to 6 with water if the product does not reach that point, attach the hose end sprayer to the hose, set the dial to six and then turn it on and spray. This will treat 6000 square feet.

    You do not need to water your lawn after applying this product.

    Q
    Can this Chapin Wet / Dry Hose-End Sprayer #6005 be used with Taurus SC?
    Can this be used with Taurus SC? If so, what would be the setting on the dial and how much Taurus SC would go in the container? 20 oz of TSC mixes with 25 gals of wateryou can only apply 1 to 2 feet up and out around buildings and a hose end would have a wider application range than that
    A

    Taurus SC can only be applied 1 to 2 feet up and out around buildings and a hose end would have a wider application range than that. It is only allowed to be used against the foundation of the home 1-2 feet up and 1-2 feet out and around window and door frames. If you were looking for a product for control of insects in your lawn, you need to use an insecticide like Talstar P. Its one of our top general insect control products that works well on ants, spiders, mosquitoes and hundreds of other bugs. You can use it in your dial sprayer and set the sprayer to 1oz per gallon of water.
