Do you run 8-1 or 4-1 inline sprayers? Many are not sure how to determine or switch their inline sprayer from 8-1 to 4-1. Made this picture to show it’s simple. Just pull the hose and unscrew the yellow metering tip. Less chemical and less waste of left over chemical. Also less clogging and inline lasts longer.

8-1 makes about 9g RTU
4-1 makes about 5g RTU

I am also done with direct injection sprayers, although I am still keeping one in the garage for large commercial work. I love the worx sprayer with modified shorter 2 pipes that are easy to spray with free of hose line. Not to mention that I don't use my pump to spray anymore.

I sure don't want fungus to grow behind my ears lol.

I got 3 containers to switch between for different applications with an easy quick disconnects. 3 and 2 gallons containers I use it for carpet pre spray, the 1 gallon one I use it for urine treatment or deodorizer.
The shorter one is for upholstery pre spray.

I can walk into a 5-6 room job and be done pre spraying in approx 5min with the second guy already on the CRB or already almost done running hoses if we aren't scrubbing.

Never have to worry about pre spraying with a smoking hot solution line or residual rinse in the line.... no hose in the way when pre vacuuming or CRBing

Can swap straight to protector and spray, or swap to wool safe for main floor rugs.
Amazing efficiency man, how much $$ do you average per truck with two guys in a day?

I am averaging 800 sq. ft. per day as a solo. Lots of upholstery jobs thrown in the mix too. I could book more carpet jobs too, I limit my ads though because I can't do more than 2 maybe 3 a day.

The hydroforce revolution seems like the best thing since sliced bread.

Use use those same pump up tanks with my Hydroshot………just with the long hose that comes with it. I’m all set with carrying a 3gal tank when spraying. Thing about the Hydro shot, and I’m on my 3rd one in a year, is that you gotta move fast or you will over saturate the carpet…….but it’s the best sprayer I’ve found. Thinking about switching to the Ryobi as I can just buy it at home depot and not have to have it shipped. As soon as my latest Worx dies I’m making the switch.
