Answer: 
I use a step ladder - set it up "up wind" and rest sprayer on ladder top and stand on 2nd or 3rd step from ladder top, and set extended wand of sprayer on solid stream. I can aim directly at leaves or shoot upward in an arch and spray will "rain down" further than 15 feet from ladder. Works for me.

Answer: 
I like the unit, but it has limitations ... and distance is one of them. I wouldn't rely upon being able to spray more than 6-7' beyond the tip of the wand which extends to about 4-5'. It's great for spot spraying for weeds or insects or broad spraying within the noted distance, like spraying the perimeter of a home or shrubbery or trees up to maybe 10-12' tall if you can get close.

Answer: 
Absolutely not. I own one and it is just like those pump sprayers you see except you just don't have to pump. The spray comes out in a small circle of very fine mist you can barely even see. There isn't enough power behind the spray to even move the leaves on the weeds you are killing, let alone try to wash a deck!

The sprayer uses 4 size D batteries - they fit in a tray - and you can use any size D batteries you have - rechargeable (if you have a charger for them) or other. The sprayer comes with standard batteries (not alkaline) and it works great. Alkaline batteries will last longer. No need to look for any other sprayer.

The sprayer requires four D cell batteries. The extremely cheap batteries that come with the sprayer are not rechargeable (which is what the guy from Flo-Master must have been talking about), but the instructions say, "NOTE: Rechargeable 'D' cell size batteries can be used."

The sprayer requires four D cell batteries. The extremely cheap batteries that come with the sprayer are not rechargeable (which is what the guy from Flo-Master must have been talking about), but the instructions say, "NOTE: Rechargeable 'D' cell size batteries can be used."
You'd have to buy the rechargeable batteries and charger separately, and you'd probably want at least eight batteries so you'd have at least one extra set to use while recharging a discharged set. Unless you already have lots of rechargeable D cells and a charger (and who would? I'm a little surprised D cell batteries are even still available), all of that would almost surely cost you more than this sprayer did.
You may be better off trying regular alkalines for a while just to see if you think rechargeable batteries are worth the extra expense. Read Less

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 402 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sprayer Works effeciently all summer on one set of batteries. No pumping needed. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love love love this sprayer I already had two of these, but, we were flooded this year and one of them was destroyed in the flood. I was so glad when Home Depot got them back in stock. I use one for spraying insects such as hot ants and I use the other one for weed killer. I hated the old pump up sprayers such a hassel spray then pump then spray then pump, with this all you do is take a stroll in the yard when something needs spraying push a button and spray no more pumping. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inferior Product I purchased this product from Home Depot (online). Initially the sprayer worked okay for about 5-6 times. The next time the sprayer did not work. I did a voltage check and found that the 4-batteries provided over 6-volts--this is excellent. I then did a voltage check at the switch--again the voltage at the switch was over 6-volts but the motor still did not run. I contacted Flowmaster in Michigan. I was advised that there are no repair parts for this sprayer. Since the sprayer was less than one year old I was hoping Flowmaster would support me--they did not. I will not recommend this sprayer. July 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1.3 Gal. Battery Power Sprayer Tried to test it with water only as per instructions. Pushed the button on sprayer, never heard of felt battery engage resulting in no out put. Will return to Home Depot. Should have paid more attention to customer review when the negatives far outweighed the positives. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasantly surprised Amazing, certainly more than I expected for the price. I only gave it 4 stars because I've only used it twice and don;t know how long the batteries last. Other than that I am more than satisfied. August 19, 2016
