    5 of 5 Stars   Very nice sprayer with some quirks
    June 30, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    I like the heavy duty design, the thick walled container, thick walled screw on top, and metal charging handle. There are only two concerns that I have with this sprayer. First, for my purposes it needed to be bundled with a adjustable fan tip. I have ordered the Chapin Brass Fan Spray Nozzle P/N 3-6001. I hope that it does the job. The other concern is that whatever drops on to the top while working, especially liquids, get injected via the pump into the mixture inside the container when the user pumps the pump. In other words, when I'm working under my house my gloved hands get very dirty. When I reach to pump the sprayer, the dirt on my hand mixed with the sweat and spray falls onto the top of the sprayer. The problem this caused is that the dirt around the O ring in the pump allowed the pressurization to escape through the pump. I.E. the sprayer wouldn't hold a pressurization charge. I had to completely clean the sprayer, re-grease the pump, refill the sprayer, and then it would hold a charge. So, just be very careful when using this sprayer in a dirty environment and try to keep the top as clean as possible. If it does get dirty, you can rinse off the top prior to pumping and that should keep the dirt out. However, if the dirt gets into the pump, you'll have to clean the top and the pump in order to get the pressurization to work again. Overall, this sprayer is very nice and I would recommend it to all.

    5 of 5 Stars   A great sprayer!
    October 9, 2008

    This Chapin Premier 2 Gallon Sprayer is a great sprayer, works, very well. The pump is easy to use and stores enough pressure to do work without always stopping. The plastic is solid and sturdy, and the handle is easy to use. I had to fill it 1.5 times to be able to apply liquid pesticide around my house. I'm glad that I got the 2-gallon version, so I don't have to stop and refill as much. I highly recommend it.

    4 of 5 Stars   Chapin Premier 2 Gal Sprayer 21220

    This is by far one of the best sprayers on the market. I own two of them, one for weed killing, one for pesticides, etc. When compared to the ones you can purchase at building supply stores it is far superior.

    5 of 5 Stars   Great Product, Great Company
    July 14, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    This is a premium product, made by a great company with exceptional customer support. I somehow lost the siphon tube when I was assembling the product. I made a call to DoMyOwnPestControl's 800 number, they didn't have the part so they gave me Chapin's number. They figured out what I needed and shipped it right to me. Both companies were extremely courteous and pleasant and the first person to answer the phone was able to help me.

    5 of 5 Stars   Excellent Sprayer
    January 22, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased the Chapin Premier 2 Gallon sprayer last August and have used it countless times since and it GREAT. I used to go down to hardware stores or building supply stores and purchase sprayers, but the problem was after using it a few times, something on the sprayer would break like the handle, spray tip, hose etc. Well after buying several sprayers basically I was just throwing my money away so spending a little over $50 dollars for the Chapin sprayer it has paid for itself, I recommend this sprayer, good quality and performance.

    5 of 5 Stars   Best sprayer for the money!
    June 6, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    This is the best sprayer for the money I could find. Nothing in the super hardware store could even come close to it and they where junk.

    5 of 5 Stars   Quality Product
    August 26, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    I bought a sprayer from a box store that needed replacing after the first use (or before the first use). After deciding to do my own pesticide and termaticide applications, I decided to pony up and get a quality sprayer. After a few uses, I think the Chapin Premier is worth every penny. The brass adjustable nozzle itself is worthy of the price premium. The pressure relief valve is great. If you want something that save a lot of time for applications (vs. cheap sprayer), save money (it'll last), and easy to use (twist nozzle for spray or jet, pressure release valve), this is it.

    All of the gaskets need to be greatly improved. Every gasket leaks too much.

    5 of 5 Stars   Great sprayer
    August 23, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    This Chapin sprayer is very easy to use. The pump action is efficient requiring less effort than other sprayers I've owned. I like the convenience of having the wide-mouth opening, large cap and continuous spray option. The wand holder makes storage easier. However, I have had this sprayer for a brief time so I don't know how it will perform in the long run. The sprayer I had when I bought this one kept losing suction (o- ring assembly) as it got older and required disassembling the pump to clean it. I hope this one will be better because it doesn't use an o-ring and the cap is made so field dirt can't get around the pump shaft.

    5 of 5 Stars   Great Sprayer!
    November 12, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    Pro: 1) Wide mouth - easy to fill/empty/clean 2) Brass wand & nozzle - sturdy, and easy to regulate spray pattern all of the way from mist to long-distance stream. 3) Pressure relief - for safe storage and opening... Cons (well, quibbles): 1) Two gallon size can get heavy, especially when crawling in attic - but then it does need fewer refills - choose size based on your strength vs. the [in]convenience of refills. 2) Wish there was way to regulate overall volume of delivery. Light application requires either a custom mix OR fast spray motion/speed.

    5 of 5 Stars   Awesome Sprayer
    August 31, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    This is the best pump sprayer that I have ever used. Before I purchased the Chapin Premier 2 gallon sprayer, I went through three sprayers. They all clogged, or the cheap plastic flow control handles broke. Again, this is a reliable high quality sprayer. Also, it is simple to use and clean.

    This sprayer works very well, good quality and easy to operate. I would highly recommend this product, for the price you can't go wrong. I would also recommend the 2 gallon sprayer, saves time with less refills.

    5 of 5 Stars   Chapin Premier does the job.
    February 2, 2015
    Verified Purchase

    I have bought different sprayers for various applications from DMOPC. These moderately priced Chapins have always done a fine job. We have 6 four accommodation villas on our properties, 6 kitchens, a winery, vinyards, outdoor pizzas, and constant weddings, corporation meetings, and the list goes on and on. Dealing with so much of the public when I have to work I have observed something. They do not worry about what I am doing as much as when I am using a stainless steel sprayer. Many of them have a sprayer like mine at home so they seem to be more accepting of its use.

    3 of 5 Stars   Sweat
    July 26, 2013

    The tank and lid are good, but the wand is way to short for spraying close to the ground plants like butternut squash, cucumbers and green beans. The pressure release valve leaked air almost as fast as I could pump it the first time I tested it. I couldn't tighten it enough to stop the leaking and had to use a rubber sealant under the washer.

    The quality is what you expect from Chapin, the brass valve and nozzle allow for precise application. I love the larger neck on the container, keeps me from spilling the chemicals down the side.

    3 of 5 Stars   A Reasonable Sprayer
    May 20, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    Ordered 1 and 2 Gallon XP sprayers. I like it well enough but there are a couple of issues for me. One is the trigger. It seems to be perfectly set up to pinch my finger on release. Also, the quantity markings on the side of the container are molded in the plastic and are hard to see. I am going to try highlighting them with black marker. The other thing is the cap/pump assembly. The pump handle locks when turning clockwise to tighten. But when you are removing the cap, the handle pops out of the lock position and extends as if to pump. Awkward at best. I had a Hudson that was probably $20-$30 that had better ergonomics than this. This is a heavier duty unit than that one though.
