A Guide To The Best Garden Pressure Sprayers

A pump action pressure sprayer offers great portability allowing you to spray your garden.  It is suitable for most garden chemicals and has multiple uses.  The main uses are not limited to: Watering plants, eliminating weeds & insects and cleaning various outdoor furniture & items.

Cleaning jobs for the garden pressure sprayer can be done but it doesn’t carry enough power to do a great job like a pressure washer would.  Either way if one of your purposes of buying a manual pressure sprayer is for cleaning, it can still do an ok job for a cheap and affordable price.

 

How To Choose The Best Garden Pressure Sprayer

Choosing the best garden pressure sprayer is usually a matter of what you want to use it for.  As the functions for each pump pressure sprayer can vary, each one might be more suited or better for specific tasks.  We’ll explain below what to look out for with each of the features.

Capacity – The amount of liquid it can hold, although with some models the capacity of liquid it can hold is actually less than what is stated as you need to leave space for the air pressure.  For cleaning jobs, you might want to consider one with a larger capacity so you don’t have to keep going back and forth to refill.

Hose length – Having a longer hose length will enable you to reach places easier without having to take the whole unit with you.  It’s also more practical if you need to spray insects or take down a wasp’s nest and don’t want to get too close.

Trigger lock – Enables the trigger to be locked for continuous use so it’s not as tiring for your hand to have to hold the trigger down.  Ideal if you want to use the pressure sprayer for a longer period of time.

Adjustable nozzle – Allows the water being sprayed out of the jet to be adjusted from fine to jet, this can be adjusted by twisting the nozzle.

Carry strap – Makes it easier to carry around the garden pressure sprayer as you can wear the strap over your shoulder.

 

How To Get Rid of A Wasp’s Nest

A pump action pressure sprayer is also very effective for getting rid of a wasp’s nest.  It allows you to spray the nest without getting too close, so it’s also safer.  You still should wear protective clothing to protect yourself from any potential wasp stings.  Without further ado, this is one of the ways in how to remove a wasp’s nest.

  • Firstly wear protective clothing in case of any potential wasp stings.
  • Fill the tank with washing up liquid and water. It doesn’t take much washing up liquid, roughly around 50ml per litre of water should be plenty.
  • Keep your distance and aim the hose at the wasps nest and wasps.
  • The soap will stick to the wasps which dehydrates them and kills them pretty quickly.

Even if there is no wasp’s nest, this method on how to kill wasps is very effective and it’s a cheap solution too.  You can even fill up an empty sprayer to save you from having to buy a manual pressure sprayer but that’ll mean you’ll have to get closer to the wasps.

We shouldn’t kill wasps for no reason though, as they pollinate plants and flowers.  Many people don’t know the purpose of wasps, so you can read all about it here.

This video will show you how to use your pump action pressure sprayer to get rid of a wasp’s nest in a place that’ll be difficult to reach otherwise.
