I purchased this sprayer Jan 2013, at a discounted price. I was impressed with the features. After a few months of use It stopped working. The seals and and o-rings where distorted. This was attributed to my lack of cleaning after each use. I contacted FLOWMATER, hoping to acquire some replacement o-rings. To my surprise the o-rings are not sold separately. I found customer service to be a bit obtuse to my dilemma. I was informed I would have to purchase the FLOWMASTER PRO PARTS KIT. I purchased the kit that contains the flow control assembly, which was the part I needed. The kit comes with various o-rings seals & gaskets needed to repair the unit. It's odd you have to purchase a replacement parts box, when all that was needed is o-rings. The sprayer offers nice features for the price. The plastic spring nuts attached to hose stops the hose from crimping. Separate attainments offered is a plus. Overall its a good sprayer. Note: Be sure to clean after each.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Robert It won't last
I purchased two of these "Pro" sprayers and the internal pump mechanism failed in each. I worked with RL directly and asked for new pump handles. They sent the plastic pieces to go on the metal rod (inside the pump handle) and that didn't work, so then they sent new rubber rings to go on the plastic pieces ... they both failed to hold pressure after a couple of sprays -- the rubber diaphragm separates from the plastic piece and then you have to disassemble the handle to refit it (not easy to do when you have chemical in the sprayer). It is just a bad design. If you use the sprayer on a regular basis, once a week, twice a month, it will not last. I just gave up on them. They lasted about 1 year

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Walt Works well.
I use it for spraying weeds. I installed a schrader valve stem (outer mount) which was easy since this is just thick plastic, which is easy to drill through and sand to size.
No more pumping for me! I haven't been able to determine the max PSI that I can fill this to, I'll have to play around with it and see when the pressure relief valve pops.
It comes with an adjustable spray nozzle which is great. If you go from spraying a large area (mist) to a spot spray (stream), all it takes is a bit of a twist. The spray wand is the perfect length. It can get right down to the ground without bending over.

This is the second sprayer I have purchased. My first one had a part that broke, but I liked the sprayer , it works well so I bought another one.

Got tired of spending money on throwaway weed killer so purchased this to use and mix my own spray. Do yourself a big favor and check your sprayer with water FIRST! I assembled sprayer as directed and filled with 2 gal. of expensive Roundup. The so called pressure relief valve was defective so the canister would not pressurize Poor design! Now I will try to find a container to hold this 2 gal. of Roundup and take this junk back. I'll try a different brand of sprayer that's for sure. I do not recommend this product period!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jack "Pro?" - poor quality
The word "Pro" associated with this product is a misnomer. During assembly it was discovered that some parts did not fit properly and that the spray nozzle itself was missing. This resulted in another trip to the retailer for exchange which is a major waste of time. The unit "works" now but it's definitely one that's "built to sell".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve This sprayer works perfectly as designed.
I bought two of these because I liked it so much. We use one for bug spray an done for weed control. The variable nozzle is excellent and the pressure releif valve works great.
