Home Built Sprayer

Here's a sprayer I built with safety and convenience in mind. It features a 17-gal. cone bottom tank with a drain valve that I installed at the bottom. The big tank allows me to mix up larger quantities of material than I was able to do with our old hand pump sprayer. I mix quantities as small as 1 gal. when I need to. The drain allows me to collect any left-over material into another container and makes it easier to clean the sprayer after use. I installed a pressure gauge and pressure control valve that gives me more control of the sprayer. The sprayer runs off any 12-volt battery so it can be used with gar-den equipment, tractors, ATV's, pickup's, etc. The sprayer was easy to build and all parts were available from commercial suppliers.
