    Was wondering how many people use diaphragm pump back packs/piston pump back packs and your preference. I'm keeping my pistons for shrub insects and thats it.Using diaphragm for the rest.

    Sp's are the ones I like too. No problems so far after 3 years of use. Dont overfill them or the vent at the top will weep product for a bit.
