Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bokie Great replacement policy
I use this sprayer for applying weed killer every summer. I had a problem the first year with the on/off valve not working properly and once I had determined that it wasn't just dirty or not oiled I called the customer service number and they sent me a whole new on/off assembly. Works great now. They stand behind their product which should mean a lot to prospective buyers.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by buckeyefan78 Not a good product
I purchased this sprayer for semi-transparent stain. As it states on the box and instructions, this sprayer is capable of handling this type of product. I loaded the sprayer and all it would do is spit a large amount of stain. No even coat and wasted more time than it's worth. I tried to adjust the nozzle and everything and same results every time. I do not recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brant Makes Staining Much Easier
I bought this to try. It's only $20 and if it didn't work, it was worth the money to try it out. Overall, this made applying stain to the deck quicker and easier. There are some precautions though. If there is any wind, be careful for over-spray on bushes, landscape or the house. The other precaution is more of a notice, the sprayer does go through more spray than the conventional brush. Just keep that in mind. If you want to save hours, buy an extra gallon of stain!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mountain The Product is a White Bottle
Both The Website and the packaging show a black plastic bottle, I ordered 2 of these and both arrived with white bottles. One had a defective pump. I have contacted Home Depot about the wrong color shown on the site, they advised that they would send a message to their IT department and it would be taken care of in the next few weeks or so.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JamestownJim CAREFUL: DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCT IS INVALID
MANUFACTURER SAYS IF YOU USE THIS PRODUCT TO SPRAY BLEACH, THE FIVE-YEAR WARRANTY IS AUTOMATICALLY VOIDED!
Ordered this a couple of weeks ago. I wanted a large capacity unit I could use to de-mildew about 150 ft of brick walkway, and the web description indicated this would handle that chore. When I received it, I got two surprises:
Positive: it comes as a translucent body rather than black, making it easier to see how much liquid is in the tank.
Negative: the box and the user instructions explicitly state: do not use bleach in this unit!
I contacted Home Depot Customer Service by "live chat" first (a 45 minute chat), and then via email, and received the usual: "We'll record your concerns in your account file". I called the manufacturer who verified that indeed it is not to be used for bleach and to do so voids the warranty. The bleach apparently erodes the seals in the unit, though it is possible to order replacement seals.
I decided to keep the sprayer because I need the volume capacity, reconciling myself to having to scrupulously clean it after every use, which includes having to disassemble the pump unit to get at and dry the seals.
Funny thing, all this appears to have been filed away somewhere in Customer Service, because the website still makes the invalid claim...
