These ratios are product to water so 5:1 would be 5 ounces of water to 1 oz. of product. When finished, turn the control valve to the off position and turn off water source before removing the Solutions Hose End Sprayer reservoir.
This sprayer is also ideally suited for home gardens and small fields. It consists of a container of 0.5 to 3.51it capacity a built in air pump, pressure gauge , nozzle and flow cut off lever.

In this sprayer air is compressed by means of a hand pump. The compressed air is allowed to pass over the end of a tube. The other end of the tube is dipped into the spray liquid kept inside a tank. The outgoing air sucks the spray liquid from the tank through the tube and blows out off the nozzle.
An airless paint sprayer uses a small electrical pump motor that forces paint through a small hole or orifice to beak it up into a fine spray. The shape of the spray cone can be adjusted for various patterns to match the job.
