I don't understand how this Chapin Slide Pump Sprayer works. Is there a video showing how it operates? I'm looking for a pump that can spray moss killer on my roof. Its a steep roof so I need to throw a spray 25 or so feet.
The Chapin Slide Pump Sprayer is a special type of sprayer that works kind of like some of the old time water guns. The sprayer is actually a short hose. You would place the water and/or your solution in a 5 gallon bucket or other container. One end of the sprayer goes into the bucket or container and sucks the water up, basically acting like a siphon. The other end of the hose is the end that you hold and the water sprays out of. By working the "slide" back and forth it sucks up water out of the bucket and then when you slide the handle forward it forces the water out under pressure. We have tested this in our warehouse and it truly does shoot 25 feet at the least. For us it went over 30 feet. Please click on the product page link above and you will find the video in the middle of the page.
