Sprayers are often selected and used based on their availability and not the application. This can cause the user inconvenience due to blockage, breakdown or chemical damage to the sprayer and ultimately is often not cost effective as it can put a stop on the job.

+ How should I store my Concrete Sprayer when not in use?

Here are some useful tips on how to store your Chapin Concrete Sprayer when it’s not being used:

  • Store your sprayer in a cool, dry space out of direct sunlight.
  • The shut-off valve should be locked in the “open” position.
  • In freezing weather drain all liquid from the tank, pump, pressure cylinder, hose, shut-off valve, wand, and nozzle. Ice forming inside the sprayer can damage components.
  • Finally – it would be good practice to inspect the hose, wand, pump, tank, and shut-off valve for wear, damage, or leaks on a regular basis, and get any defects repaired promptly before they develop into more serious (expensive) problems.

+ Why are Chapin industrial Concrete Sprayers so popular with the construction trade?

In our view, Chapin produces the best industrial and concrete sprayer solutions available.

Chapin have earned a highly positive reputation within the construction industry. We believe that this is due to fact that Chapin industrial/construction/professional sprayers have been specifically designed to address specific applications. Consequently, Chapin sprayers have features that are purposely designed to address the needs of their users for specific tasks. For example, they use heavy-duty tanks designed to stand up to the harshest industrial chemicals.

Chapin equip their sprayers with seals made to withstand the harshest chemicals and to give you consistent results time after time.

As an established and reputable manufacturer, Chapin sets exacting quality standards that will give you value, versatility, and durability.

+ Who are Chapin?

Chapin Sprayers are manufactured in America by Chapin International based at Batavia in New York State. The company was founded in the late 1800s initially making cans for the safe storage and transportation of kerosene. The company then moved into making compressed air and hand sprayers. Today, as Chapin themselves claim:

"Sprayers are still made from the best materials and exceed the most exacting industry standards. Chapin products continue to perform safely and dependably, providing years of reliable service. Just as they have since 1884”.
