The originals were excellent. New ownership made the product cheaper and only so-so quality.

I do not recommend any cordless sprayer. I have seen battery issues be a common thing on every brand including the FlexiPro cordless that we made but stopped making this year.

I think Multisprasyer is the best of what is available, but not good enough to get my stamp of approval. https://interlinksupply.com/index.php?item_num=AS78

they all suck. use hydro force for pre spray so your not lugging around gallons.

what do you need it for? best way to apply upholstery pre spray is hand bonnet and small bucket or trigger sprayer..

best way to apply tile/grout/stone cleaner is bucket and flat mop, same with sealer.

only thing you really need another sprayer for is protector, which a pump up I think is best

applying tile/grout/stone cleaner with a hydro force or sprayer is just sloppy @lvtandg.

I dont think customers like groutmaster or tile cleaner mist on their baseboards lol. We mask off everything and still use flat mop to apply. Its much easier and way less messy.

What's wrong with the 3M multi sprayer ? We had ten of them, all seemed excellent for well over a year now

Glad you had no issues with your sprayers.

We had problems with almost 8% of the sprayers we sold. Almost all of those issues were battery problems. People don't always used them as directed concerning when to charge. I have heard other brands had failure rates as high as 20%.

I went trough some electric ones and multi sprayers as well, but I end up using hydro- force. I found them most efficient and easy to operate. Not without issues, but what is.. If you give Multi sprayer a lot of love( no bumping, no dropping on the floor,no splashing over the battery pack) it gives you a solid performance. It has easy trigger and fine, even spray. Also there was no problem with a recharging. I didn't like the weight, that's alll...
