The Chapin 20000 1-Gallon Lawn and Garden Sprayer is a basic hand held pump sprayer that is great for spraying pesticides, fertilizer and weed killers. It is on the “basic” or “introductory model” list, meaning it doesn’t have a ton of features and the durability is less than some of the more expensive units.
That being said, if you are not going to be using your pump sprayer that often or are just getting into using a pump sprayer, for the price, this unit is great for you. It’s still a great pump sprayer and many people that own it say it’s a great unit and does everything they need it to do.
Main Advantages Of The Chaplin 20000
When you get the pump sprayer, you will notice that there are a couple of mounting rings which enable you to attach any type of strap to the unit. Having a strap is a great idea with these handheld pump sprayers. Since this is a one gallon unit, the strain on the arm isn’t that great, but over time a shoulder strap will save a lot of time. Unfortunately, this unit does not come with a strap.
The funnel top is something I generally like on garden sprayers. I have used sprayers in the past that did not have the funnel shaped spout to pour your product in. Let me tell you, it can get messy real fast. Also, if the seal around the top should ever start to leak, those funnel tops usually contain the spilled solution.
It may seem like common sense, but there are a lot of sprayers out there that you have to remove the cap to see how much solution is left in the tank. With the Chaplin 20000, the bottle is actually translucent which enables you to quickly look down at the tank to see your fill level.

Chapin 2000 Guide Review
Even though I expressed some concerns about reliability and construction, I must make it clear again that If this is for your personal garden or doing some bug spraying around the house or work, this is a great little pump sprayer for you. For a heavier daily use type application, I would definitely look at some of the other models featured on this site.
One thing that concerns me about the reviews on this unit though is that some people explained how the unit “exploded in their face”. Now, I do not know if they had the cap tightened down enough or the cap was on wrong. The reviews are pretty good on this unit except for a few, which you can’t really figure out if it was user error.
Here are a few reviews:
For an occasional use, this sprayer is good. If you have large areas you need to get a shoulder strap which will hook right on to this unit. If you have a little bit bigger of a yard or are going to be using this pump sprayer more frequently, you may want to take a look at the Chapin 61900 Tree/Turf Pro Commercial Backpack Sprayer.
The Chapin 20000 looks like a great little weekend warrior entry level sprayer for your yard or garden
