3 tips for choosing the right sprayer

Editorial team|3 minutes to read

With the right sprayer and a little patience, you can achieve professional-standard workmanship. But how do you find the right sprayer for your job from the huge range of sprayers? In this article we'll give you three tips to help you make the right decision.

Tip 1. What do you want to spray?
The first consideration is the suitability of the sprayer to the task ahead. Do you need to spray a large, even surface, or will you be spraying an object which features multiple corners and edges? Do you want a firm jet, or do you want to spray or apply a layer of foam? Each sprayer is designed for particular applications; make sure the task you need to achieve is one of them.

Tip 2. How much work do you have lying around?
Battery and engine back sprayers are specially designed to do the hard work for you. With a regular hand or back sprayer, you continuously pressurise the fluid yourself using muscle power. That’s fine for short work or small surfaces, but is there a big job on the agenda? Then a battery and motor sprayer in combination with a pump provides all the pressure you need, and will make the job easier, more comfortable and faster.

The professionals’ tip: A second battery allows you to work far more flexibly with your battery sprayer, rather than wasting time waiting for a single battery to recharge.

Tip 3. What substance are you going to apply?
What sort of substances will your sprayer be applying? Not all sprayers are resistant to acidic substances, oils or alkaline cleaning substances, for example. Industrial sprayers are always fitted with special oil and acid resistant seals, usually made of viton. This material is also resistant to acids and chlorine, so there are no unpleasant surprises. Make sure you read the technical descriptions for any sprayers you are considering.

Bonus maintenance tip:
Always empty and clean your sprayer after use. Flush the sprayer immediately so that there is clean water in the pump during storage; this will prevent damage to the equipment or potentially damaging leaks during storage. The resistance of the sprayer says something about it while being in active use, but does not always apply when the product is being stored.
