sorry if my topic is in the wrong section of the forum ?! I really need something like this http://www.cleanstore.co.uk/products/Product.asp?ID=936


asap - however not at that price .... Does this sprayer worth the money at all ? almost 400 quid seems a lot ...


Any idea how to DIY a powerfull sprayer ? may be a 12v pump(chemical resistant) attached to a 10 litre plastic container ? and a sprayer lance ?!


I want to use it to apply the chemicals / prespray on carpet . I ve got a 8L spraer from B n Q - but it takes me 15 min to spray the carpet in one bedroom .


I need something quicker - time is money lol

i'll get this one - looks ok to me , and price is more acceptable : )


the other one on auction might be won cheaper of course - however I bought previously from that seller and wasn't impressed with that item - and he doesn't answer any emails at all - once he got the payment lol


thanks very much

Just use a big boy back pack or similar.


They are designed to be used with chemicals as they are rebadged chemical sprayers mate.



10 litre is the maximum capacity I need - easy to mix proportionally - and just enough time to spray it . I use a prespray/powder which works only 15 minutes after is mixed . so if anything left in there after 15 min then it has to be drained .


the good thing - is has a battery and pump :) I cleaned yesterday a 4 bed house - just imagine how much pumping i've done with my 6 litre manual sprayer lol

At least that part of the carpet had a good prespray :Image13:


I'm lazy so if it were me for pre treating carpets with traffic lane cleaner my prefered choice would be to use a chepo 12v electric backpack sprayer too.

how easy would be to connect a spray lance to a back pack ? I reckon the backpacks on ebay are ready for connecting a pole to them !? and what's the pressure / psi usually ?


honestly I never saw or used a backpack before . I 'll look for a good lance - and If i can attach it easily to the backpack - it would be brilliant - as i am not very kin pumping a handsprayer too

well - the cheap one in garden centre - are good for beginners . I killed few of them already . And I don't think a professional carpet cleaner will use one of these anyway . If the carpets are heavy soiled - and prespray has to be applied allover then for a 4 bedroom house it will take an hour to spray , something that can be done in 15 min using a proper sprayer .


I will get the backpack trrw - the one mentioned above - it comes with two nozzles - which is brilliant
