What is a recommended sprayer to use with this product

Will this work http://www.homedepot.com/p/ECHO-4-Gal-Piston-Pump-Backpack-Sprayer-MS-400/204631907?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal1_rr-_-205533110-_-204631907-_-N
Asked by: Ravi
Hello, Thanks for your interest in our concrete stain. A pump sprayer is one of the application tools we recommend. I would just suggest checking with that particular pump sprayer manufacturer to ensure it is compatible with a water-based stain, as is ours. Best wishes for your project!

1-gal. #STC-35 Dark Coal Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very good It really looks great when first applied, and remains good looking in most areas painted except high traffic areas and high sun areas. These two areas, high traffic and high sun, need a fresh coat at least every other year. The remaining surface looks good for at least three or four years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Definitely a lot of money but you get what you pay for for sure. Take your time and read and re-read instructions. Goes on MUCH easier with a roller than a sprayer. 2 & 3 coats does best. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this concrete stain! Transformed an ugly basement floor into a beauty! I love the new look! Used one of the reviews (Thanks, BellaBee) as a guide, and prepped first, then rag-rolled colors on. Besides using Loden, Warm Shale, and Chicory, I also used Water Stone and Dark Charcoal. It's important to note there are no specks in the paint as the samples show. Applied the Wet-Look Sealer which makes the floor shine and is impervious to scratching. I've slid heavy furniture around, with no scratch marks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prep and Prime I've been a floor coating contractor for over 40 years. This product will perform as promoted, but you MUST follow all the directions re. prep and priming to avail yourself of the advertised properties. In addition I would recommend a clear coat for maximum splash and spill protections. I get the best results applying with an HVLP gun, and the results can be FANTASTIC!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stain For Driveway I originally applied this stain on my driveway (2 coats) and walkway 2 years ago after acid washing and pressure washing. It went on very easily and lasted well except for a couple of spots on some new concrete that pealed off because of RV tires. I recently put on two more coats and it came out fantastic. I changed the lines in the driveway and walkway to a darker shade which looked much better than the lighted stain before. I used the English Brick on the large areas and the Natural Henna on the lines. I have pictures on the Behr - home depot website review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! Not an acid stain. This is a great product if your concrete floors are not smooth enough for a true acid stain. I used this color along with blue bolder to create a good looking floor. We had to prep the floor after pulling up the carpet and all the glue spots were still there with the Home Depot Floor Maintainer and concrete prep tool (watch video prior to using).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Semi=Transparent Patio Stain After much research, I chose to stain my patio with the BEHR concrete stain instead of painting. Since the concrete patio was already porous, I washed and rinsed the patio and let it dry thoroughly. I wanted my patio to have the appearance of large rocks instead of just the somewhat plain look of a concrete floor. I drew off patterns for the rocks using a charcoal color paint and a small fan brush used for painting landscapes. Once that was dry, I applied the BEHR primer. The primer was allowed to dry about 3 hours. I then applied two coats of the BEHR stain and allowed that to dry thoroughly (overnight). The next morning I applied the sealer, still using a roller to apply the sealer, and the patio is absolutely beautiful. I didn't move my furniture back on the patio for four days. I have had so many wonderful comments on my patio that it is unbelievable and it was not much work at all. I did change rollers at intervals throughout the process. The patio is absolutely gorgeous!
