Best Pump Sprayer – Top 4 Sprayers Reviewed

A container filled with a good mixture of food, weed or insect repellant, a pump sprayer can be attached to your traditional garden hose and allows you to hand pump the solution on your garden.

It conveniently allows you to be more precise if different parts of your garden need attention in a variety of ways. Pump sprayers can also be used by painters and exterminators. Smaller hand-held pumps are perfect for taking care of indoor plants.

Some beefy sprayers have brass wands that are corrosion resistant. Large reservoirs that contain plenty of liquid are best for treating large patches of weeds. Let’s look at a few different products and their features.
