What do you think?
that's basically the same as mine, but with a larger capacity.
As Riggle stated, eventually the painted metal will corrode. Stainless won't. I've treated 8 properties so far and have no complaints, but like I said, this one is a starter model for me just to see how everything will progress. I wash mine after each use and put a coat of fluid film on it.
