Just starting my business. Was going to purchase a hydroforce injection sprayer and a couple of other jugs to keep different chemicals in. Am I on the right path or should I use pump up sprayers or a combination of both.
Thanks for the help.

The only thing stopping me from buying the Hydroforce is hearing endless stories about them leaking.

Thats no good. Apprecite the reply. You just use the pump up sprayers. What brand works for you.
I watched a few videos explaining how much better the pressurized prespray works.

I use both. Hydro force can have issues but the amount of time saved on doing big job where you need to lay down alot of solution hydroforce is good. Pump up used alot for tile and grout and small carpet clean jobs. But both have pros and cons get the hydroforce great tool

I’m not saying it’s better or more professional at all. But I’ve owned expensive pump up sprayers and cheap pump up sprayers. The ones that lasted longest for me atleast is $5 Wal Mart one every time. I so badly want a good sprayer.

Hydroforce (injection sprayers) are superior for speed and effectiveness if used correctly.

Hydroforce is the CRB of sprayers, hell of a lot more professional than a $5 Walmart sprayer lol....
The adjustable dial Revolution sprayer sucks!!! But the standard Hydroforce is fine!!!!

Trust me I agree.... hence why I said that in my post. But all over TMF, and FB people complain about brand new sprayers leaking.
I’ll buy one ASAP if Rob can check it out before shipping it. Are they warrantied?
@AussieCarpetBloke I like that the “crb” of sprayers you had me there! Lol

I wouldn't take @AZHome&Carpet advice too seriously, he just graduated from rookie status at the end of the last year. But he's on something , seriously. The one I use, shows minor leak also, but I have it for 6-7 years. The rest of the inventory
( honestly without counting I can say I have at least 10 dema valves and 5 complete sprayer setups and all they need is a $15 repair kit. You can have a different means of spraying down protector, deo and pre spray ( hand pumps - 1quart, 1 gal, 2 gal., 4 gal backpack sprayer) but get one injection sprayer. You'll spend around $130-$150, depending on distributor, but get one.
I'll PM you if you like and give you a real situations, when use of injection sprayer is a must. Carry on...

Is there Rob's secret injection system being developed? All you need, is a little tweaking and since you don't clean anymore, you have a plenty of time on your hands...
Surprise us.

Doesn’t take a career plumber to know there’s a leak.

Funny the thread that went on forever talking about how mad people were with the leaky Hydroforce Sprayers magically disappeared as many posts and threads do

Threads disappear? How did you acquire this false narrative?

Now as to injection sprayers that leak there are two simple solutions. One, just cut your ball valve off. Two, install a check valve behind the lance jet.

The only time I ever had a Hydroforce sprayer leak was when it was time to replace the QD between the trigger and the hose, or when I didn't teflon the threads well enough. Either way it was a quick and easy fix and I've put some pretty heavy abuse on both of mine over the last year and a half.

It takes a “Career” carpet cleaner to learn how to maintain a sprayer...... Maybe that’s my In, I’ll start a class and mentor others on this complexity.

I am still in the rookie class, and I can say I would never want to tackle a big job without the speed of the hydro force. however, for most of my residential work, I use pump up sprayers. It keeps my from having to worry about hoses in the way, and where I am people want their doors shut for as long as possible. So I’m able to prespray and agitate before having to leave a door open. (Yes, I know, a door cover would fix this. Just can’t afford it now) I also like being able to know that my prespray is mixed and applied evenly. Most of the time hydro force’s will work without a problem, but me being a rookie, I may not catch that something is wrong until after I’ve sprayed a whole house. Lol so I’d definitely recommend one if you plan on taking on any type of big jobs. Commercial, or even big residential
