Product Overview

Premier Pro Tri-poxy Steel Sprayer (#1280) is a great product that has many of Chapin's unique features that set this product above the rest of the market. Those features include: structural strength from the TriPoxy coated metal tank and Viton Seals which make this product last for years, SureSpray anti-clog filter keeps the sprayer from getting clogged up internally, a top quality 12" brass wand and adjustable nozzle for the flexibility you need, a zinc shut off valve coated with an epoxy for easy cleaning and durability, a funnel top that makes filling the tank easy and a pump handle that is made of industrial grade metal for long lasting durability. What else could you want in a sprayer?

Any sign of deterioration indicates possible tank weakening and could result in explosive bursting under pressure. If any of these signs are found, discard tank immediately and replace. Do not attempt to patch leaks, etc., as this could result in serious injury.

    Premier Pro Tri-Poxy Steel Sprayer

    By C.g. on 09/02/2015

    Nice looking tank...seal at the top needs to be tight or it will leak under pressure, and tip has a nice spray but drips after releasing trigger with remaining pressure. I purchased this to use around the baseboards inside and it does the job, although the wife doesn't care for the extra dripping. Go for a more expensive sprayer for inside pest control application.

    needs a better o-ring on the neck, and a pressure relief valve would be nice on the tank. Other than that, it's a good sprayer

Is the Premier Pro Tri-poxy Steel Sprayer (#1280) ok for diesel fuel?
Diesel fuel should not be placed in the Premier Pro Tri-poxy Steel Sprayer (#1280). It is recommended that you use Fertilizers, Fungicides, Herbicides, Pesticides in this sprayer. We do not recommend that you use gasoline or ethanol in any sprayer because of their flash points. We did speak to the manufacturers of the two lines of sprayers we carry and both said that while they cannot truly recommend a sprayer for your needs because of liability issues, some professionals do use the Chapin 3.5 Gallon Concrete Sprayer 1949 to spray diesel fuel.
