Regarding Garden Pressure Sprayers

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a brand of hand pressurized Garden Sprayer to use that would be durable enough for paint? Cone head nozzles preffered (Not fan tips)... If you know the deal with these (not many people out there)... I would appreciate the help. You can send me a private message.

 

Thanks.

most brass tips are fan tips. but just about any one should work. make sure the tube from the handle is metal or plastic, because a rubber one will be tough and take some time when in action. and you might want to thin the paint with either water or mineral spirits, depending on what kind aof paint you use. and water based paint would be your best bet.

Yea, the watered down Latex didn't work out too well. It didn't really spray, it just squirted out paint... I'm going to try the Oil paint w/ Mineral Spirits... peace

use a deck sprayer, they make them without fan tips, theyre cheap, and theyre made for wood stain so they work with stuff thicker than watered down fertilizer.

 

also, they tend to have atomizer valves in them.

garden pressure sprayers lack the pressure (you can pump until your arm falls off) to make a really mean look. it tends to kind of pour of of the end of the nozzle, like water on half pressure in a hose.

 

something that's not a fire extinguisher but is pretty handy, though, is one of those cream whipper thingy's crackhead's use to do whip it's.

fill with bucket paint say 80% of the way, charge a few cartridges until it won't take anymore (usually 4-7 at most) then flip it over, use the handle and spray on.

 

you gotta flip it over because the system lacks the down tube that makes the fire extinguisher so awesome.

 

you can't reach as high as you can with a F.E., but you can definitely do some seriously drippy damage.

 

practice, like anything, is suggested before usage.
