SPRAYER DESCRIPTION: Sprayer which attaches to any garden hose and is controlled by an easy off/on switch on top. When pushed forward, the valve will be closed. When turned clockwise (straight up), the valve will be on and if the water supply is turned on as well, the sprayer will begin to spray. When closed, nothing will happen. When you want to make a chemical application using this sprayer, first add the product you want to spray.
HOW TO USE OUR 20 GALLON HOSE END SPRAYER
1) Place proper amount of chemical (powder or liquid) into jar to make desired number of gallons to be sprayed. Fill jar with proper amount of water for gallons to be sprayed. This sprayer can be used to spray from 1-20 mixed gallons of solution. Once the desired amount of chemical and water have been added to the holding tank, stir well before reconnecting sprayer head (see mixture example).
2) Attach sprayer head to jar to prevent spillage. Firmly thread hose-end connector to the end of garden hose. Turn water valve (counterclockwise) to OFF position. This will be the forward position. Turn on water faucet.
3) To spray your mixture, turn the valve (clockwise) to the ON position. Valve must be fully open for best results. To shut off water turn back to the OFF position.
HOW HIGH WILL THIS SPRAYER REACH? We get this question quite a bit. The answer is simple; however high you can reach with your garden hose and the water pressure at your house is how high this sprayer will reach. This means the reach height will vary from home to home. So for some who have very weak water pressure, you may not be able to get reach much above 15-20 feet. But for most all homes, it will be able to spray 20-25 feet up and for some, 30 feet or higher still.
MIXTURE EXAMPLE: If chemical calls for 1 tablespoon per gallon and you want 5 gallons of finished spray, place 5 tablespoons of product into jar and fill with water to the 5 gallon mark on side of jar.
CLEANUP: Clean sprayer and jar after each use to prevent mixture and contamination between different chemicals. Rinse jar and refill with clean water, and spray for approximately 1 minute.

Does this work for CYPERMETHRIN? (That is a 1 oz. per gallon ratio)
Tech Support @ 1:29 pm
Yes. Its actually a good option; easy to use and very accurate.

We are over run with tree frogs and other types of frogs here in Florida. We have a pool and they are in the pool almost every night. They are so loud and when I look out the back door it looks like they are having a pool party 🙂 hanging around the pool and swimming until the early morning. We wind up with dead frogs in our pool as well and having to take them out. I came upon your information when I was looking for what to do with them without killing them. I need to know if this product will harm domestic pets or us swimming in the pool? Thinking of purchasing this; please let me know. Thank you, Angie

The product on this page is nothing but a hose end sprayer so I’m not sure which one you’re asking about.
But if you review our Tree Frog article, you’ll see several listed. Your best option is the Pest Rid. Spray it on any plant the tree frogs will immediately leave. It can be applied with any standard pump sprayer and treatments generally last a month.
For tall trees, use a fogging machine to apply it.

For reaching 30-40 feet up, go with this model:

Great Company! Product was very easy to use. Product was delivered as promised!

Can this sprayer be used with Outslaught insecticide?
Tech Support @ 7:40 am
George Enos @ 9:18 am
Worked as advertised. I would recommend this product.
Beth S. @ 10:50 am
Good quality. This product is very easy to use and made the application much simpler than other sprayers.

Will this sprayer work for a 50/50 bleach/water application to kill fungus on a roof.
Tech Support @ 4:13 pm
No. In fact, we’re not aware of any hose end sprayer capable of spraying such a concentrated end mixture. Think about it. If you want a 50/50 mixture, you would need to add 1/2 gallon of bleach to 1/2 gallon of water. So even if this sprayer had a 1 gallon holding tank and you filled it with bleach, you would need the sprayer to disperse the entire amount by spraying just 2 gallons of water which it cannot do. In fact it will take 20 gallons of water to empty the tank so for every gallon of water you spray, it will only have about 1.5 oz of bleach.
More importantly, bleach won’t control mold. At best it might turn it light (bleach will turn many things white and take away the color) but it won’t kill it. And the super low PH the bleach produces on the surface of the roof will allow the mold and algae to grow back very fast once the bleach is gone (which is usually within a few hours).
So if you want the mold and algae killed and to stay away a lot longer, go with the Mold Blaster we have listed here:
Mold Blaster: www.bugspraycart.com/sanitizer/liquid/mold-blaster-gal
It only takes a few oz of Mold Blaster per gallon of water and it will both kill and prevent mold/algae from coming back a lot longer. Typically you’ll only need to use it once a year and you won’t be seeing anything new growing if you follow that maintenance program. And you can use the sprayer above to make the application too.

Nice sprayer. Easy to use for almost any chemical for the yard or garden. Great buy.
Patricia M. @ 12:46 pm
Just what we needed to put out your product. Now we just hope it works!
Sheree H. @ 1:26 pm
Easy to use. This sprayer is simple to attach to the hose and makes application of insecticide easier.

How far does this spray? Needing to get to the tops of trees.
Tech Support @ 10:15 am
The general rule on how high it will reach is based on how high your hose will spray when using any standard spray nozzle. This sprayer will use the power of your water pressure so the reach will vary from house to house. At my home, the pressure it quite high so I can spray it upwards about 30 feet. And with a little extra effort, almost 35 feet. But my parents old home had such weak water pressure, the hose could barely spray 15 feet.

Vendors web site is informative, easy to navigate and order from.
Shipment was timely and we were informed via email of shipment information.
Received package was in good condition.
Items were very well packaged with lots of protective padding. A completed packing slip was enclosed.
Sprayer performs as advertised.
I would recommend this vendor and product.

Hi. I have a question as to how this works.. So, if the chemical calls for 5 tablespoons per 5 gallons, and i make that mixture is in the sprayer. Then, I add my water hose to the sprayer, wouldn’t this essentially weaken my mixture with the added hose water??
I am quite confused by this.. But, maybe I am not fully understanding how the sprayer works.
Either way, I look forward to hearing from you guys so that I can (hopefully) quickly eradicate an awful springtail infestation around our home. (They seem to be all over the neighborhood, I’m just trying to get them out of our home)
Thank you for your time and expertise! This website truly is a blessing and a huge help for so many people.
Tech Support @ 8:00 am
Not sure we understand how you “think” its works but we can tell you how it actually works. Its really quite simple.
In this case, if you add 5 tablespoons of the product you want to use and then add water to the sprayer so it fills to the 5 gallon line, when you spray it all out, you will have sprayed 5 gallons of water/chemical. At NO TIME WILL MORE WATER GO INTO THE SPRAYER.
This sprayer works when connected to a hose and as the water passes through the top of the sprayer, the water will siphon out the contents you mixed inside. It does so at the proper rate regardless of how fast or slow you turn on your water pressure so it works the same for every home regardless of water pressure or water flow speed. To check, you can add water to the 5 gallon line, hook it to your hose and spray into 5 gallon buckets. By the time you fill the 4th bucket, the water in the sprayer will be gone.
On a side note, which product of ours would you be using at this rate? 5 Tablespoons is not something we normally recommend; its always in oz per gallon or gallons of water.
On another side note, the 5 tablespoons you mentioned; was that for 1,000 sq/ft? 5,000 sq/ft? This is super important as you must apply the proper amount of chemical over the sq/footage we recommend if you are to get desired results. What most people fail to understand is that as long as you’re doing that, its not important how much water you use. So you can use 1 gallon, 5 gallons 10 gallons or more of water as water is only the carrier. Whats important is the chemical so as along as the right amount is applied over the sq/footage you want to treat, you’ll have results.

Hello, I have a cluster fly issue, I just found out about weep holes, I think that is how they are coming into my home, I would like to order the sprayer, but I need to know if the product can be sprayed on dirt as well, and does it mask the pheromone scent, thank you very much, love your website.
Tech Support @ 6:04 pm
If you refer to our cluster fly article, you’ll see the product you’ll need is our Maxxthor which can be sprayed on turf, plants, house siding, etc.

Oh, I forgot, who is your shipper?
Tech Support @ 6:05 pm
Not sure what you mean by “who” but we use FedEx, USPS and UPS every day so any of those depending on where we’re shipping, what you’re ordering, etc.
Janet Maulbeck @ 7:13 am
So easy to use! Very happy with this purchase.
Carl Prater @ 6:38 am
Have used it twice. Good so far!
Tech Support @ 9:05 am
Great! This is great! Works exactly as explained. I was hesitant at first, but once I turned it on it was great. The only downside is once you hook it up to the hose, if the hose kinks you can’t undo it by twisting the side with the sprayer because the pesticide comes out the top. I also wish the on/off switch was easier to use. The measuring instructions were a little confusing, but actually spot on – I just didn’t realize how slow the sprayer sends out the chemicals. WEAR GLOVES AND EYE COVERINGS.
Steve Suorez @ 7:51 am
Easy to use and worked very well. Did not leak during use like most of the other hose end sprayers I’ve used in the past.
