Home, garden, landscape and agricultural Sprayers

History of sprayers:

Spraying equipment of many types have been used in agriculture and industry for hundreds of years. Portability and convenience are the two features previously lacking. Use of high-density polyethylene plastic in sprayers was pioneered by Solo in 1955. Today a myriad of sprayers are available, however, most homeowners, gardeners, and landscapers rely on one, two, and three gallon compression sprayers and four gallon knapsack sprayers for everyday applications.

Solo Story:

With the introduction of plastic chemical sprayer tanks in 1955, Solo pioneered the use of this material. In 1961 the first all plastic, high-density polyethylene sprayer by Solo, created a sensation. Today the famous Solo backpack sprayer is still the industry standard with many emulators worldwide.

Present use of sprayers:

Solo produces a line of pressure sprayers from .5 liter to 20 liter/5 gallon and motorized units in the 15 to 20 liter ranges. Each sprayer is designed for comfort convenience and ease of use.

Choosing a sprayer:

One and two gallon sprayers are ideal for most home and garden applications.
Three gallon compression sprayers are often used when larger amounts of spraying is required. Many users switch to the backpack because of its convenience and efficiency. It is easy to carry, can be pumped on the go and can be filled with one to four gallons of formula…whatever is needed.

Sprayer features to look for:

          1, 2, and 3 gallon compression sprayers:

  • Hose length of 3 to 4 feet
  • Wand length of 24" or more
  • Viton seals for chemical resistance
  • Pressure relief valve for venting excess pressure
  • Large carry handle and efficient pump using o-rings instead of plastic cup

          Backpack/knapsack sprayers:

  • Tank shape is important, boxy, squarish and cylinderical tanks often press on the small of the back, creating discomfort
  • The frame on the tank bottom should rest on the backside or hip bones for maximum comfort
  • Padded straps
  • Four feet or more hose
  • 24" or longer wand assembly
  • Viton components for chemical resistance
  • Piston and diaphragm pumps Piston - straight liquid formulations
    Diaphragm - Wettable powders or
    abrasive formulations.
