    Best Of The Best.

    By Duane on 04/26/2016

    I needed a good, but cost effective solution to my gardening and pest control needs. This item fits on both counts. It is sturdy, reliable and it did not break the bank. I am very pleased with its solid all steel construction and brass spray tip. If there is a better one out there, I don't know where it could be. I shopped many places both online and in retail stores. This was the answer at a great price. I highly recommend this product.

    Steel Sprayer

    By Jennifer on 08/14/2015

    So far it's been great. Received it in less time than the order said. It said it comes with a strap, but it wasn't in the box.

    Expert ResponseExpert response:
    Please note: the carrying strap is an optional accessory and is not included with the sprayer.

    Loving it..

    By Patrick on 11/04/2015

    I am a "non-professional" when it comes to spraying for bugs around my house. After spending $100 on various plastic sprayers that broke down, I decided to get a steel sprayer. I really like the Premier Pro. Thank you!

    Good sprayer for the price

    By Nate on 05/10/2016

    This sprayer is used professionally for application of oil and oil based bird and bat repellents. We have used plastic sprayers in the past and found that the valves and pumps will not hold up the to the use or the oil based products. Although the pump is plastic on this sprayer it seems to hold up well. We especially like the metal valve handle and wand. We purchased the one gallon sprayer as that is the normal amount of product we need use at each job.

Q
What is best way to hold the Chapin Premier Pro Tri-Poxy Steel Sprayer (1 Gal.) during use?

It does not look like there is a big handle compared to other styles. Also, how much is an 18" wand for this sprayer, and can it be added to purchase price and shipped with the unit rather than the 12" wand?

A

The Chapin Premier Pro Tri-Poxy Steel Sprayer (1 Gal.) actually has a handle similar to most other Chapin sprayers.  It is just that the angle at which the photo that is shown on the website is taken in makes it look like the handle is smaller.  We have spoken with Chapin and this sprayer currently only is available for purchase with the 12" wand, although you may purchase an 18" wand separately here if you wish.
