Fiber Cop Sprayer
#1
What are you guys using to spray protector like Fiber Cop? I have been using a backpack pump up sprayer and there's no way I only spray at a rate of 1000-1500 SQ FT per gallon. To do that it seems like I have to move very fast and I question whether I am getting the necessary coverage. 

1000 sq ft per gallon doesn't seem like you are putting very much down?
Tools: Old Blue CCS OP machine, Gem oscillating stair machine, Dyson vacuum, Bissell Proforce vacuum, Vacaway chems, Glad pads, Pump up sprayers. padding

For upholstery we use the solo 418 sprayer. Once ya fill it, it seems to last forever.

For carpets, I'm a huge fan of TeeJet wands, http://www.spraysmarter.com/teejet-trigg...-inch.html

Except I'd replace the tip with one of these, http://www.spraysmarter.com/teejet-adapter-pp.html

and the TeeJet tip with a flow rate that makes the most sense, and they come in a variety of types, http://www.spraysmarter.com/visiflo-teej...005vs.html

First time I've seen the plastic ones.  I've always gone with the 8000 series brass or stainless ones.  8005 for carpet usually, although an 8008 makes things go faster.

I set up a decent metal pump-up sprayer with a gun similar to this http://www.richelieu.com/us/en/category/woodworker-essentials/glues-silicones-caulking/equipment-and-accessories/adjustable-flow-spray-gun-for-glue-canisters/1021803/sku-AA23L45885

with an 8001 and about ten feet of poly hose for upholstery.  An 8001 clogs pretty easy so I added a regular, old fashioned, plastic inline fuel filter to the hose.

The nice thing about TeeJet's is that easy to change the spray tip to the flow rate you need.

Sorry Derek,

I dropped the forums for a while. The pattern on the standard nozzle is a cone and can be adjusted all the way down to a direct stream. Every now and again I use the stream to apply something like PeeRadicator. 

I purchased one back in October of 2014 and its currently Feb of 2017 and still going strong. (Even with the massive pressure of having a product like PeeRadicator abusing it. hehe)
