    Hey folks, I used to get my Chapin sprayers from Rona here in Canada, but they no longer sell them, so I’ve switched to Acklands-Grainger as a supplier, but they don’t keep pressure. It’s making me nuts. The Chapin sprayers have such a great even spray, but I have to re-pressurize them every time I pick them up. I’m including a link to the type of sprayer to the Acklands site. https://www.acklandsgrainger.com/en/product/SPRAYER-42-OZ/p/CPN1046

    Global Industrial sells Hudsons. They are in Ontario. https://www.globalindustrial.ca. Shipping was decent but they have a minimum amount of parts for fixing old ones.

    I should be more specific. What sprayers do you use. I could just buy more of the Chapin sprayers, but if they keep failing after a few months, why bother?

    Smaller than a Chapin, but I’ve started swearing by these Gloria misters found in the Rose Brand catalog. they give a really nice spray and something about the pump makes them easier to pressurize. I don’t feel like my arm is going numb like I do when I use the yellow P-50 misters. P-50s get stiff, but Glorias do not.

    I’ve been wondering if those Rosebrand sprayers are worth their price.

    For small hand sprayers, we’ve been using the real cheap Project Source sprayers that we get at our local Lowes.

    For the price and convenience they are amazing, and in my opinion, mist just as nicely as a Gloria.

    Of course I don’t know if you can get them where you are, but it’s worth looking into.

    We almost exclusively use Gloria’s. We buy a new one every season. It stays water only for it’s first year and then gets put in regular use. We love, love, love them. I hate how expensive they are, but they ARE worth the money in the end. With care, they last 5x as long as any other sprayer we have used. Very nice fine spray and holds a good amount of paint.
