    I have had leakage with mine and had to use teflon tape. :hammerhead:

    Also trying to hunt down just the replacement stainless steel wand [metal part] not the entire unit and loose the wet noodle plastic wands.

    Few years back Costco sold the Brass Tip and Stainless wand 4 gallon back pack sprayers for $69 or whatever.

    Went back to stock up and there were none left. :cry:

    Tractor Supply has the steel replacement wands, and telescopic wands, if that is what you mean.

    What are you srpaying? Most stuff don't get along with metals too well. It's not plastic so it can be sold cheap. Good metal wands have a liner in them.

    I'm looking to replace this part with a brass or stainless steel one. The plastic one jumps the threads and leaks if I swap it out with a newer generation wand assembly even though it is the same model.

    Also trying to hunt down JUST the stainless steel tube to replace the plastic [wet noodle] plastic ones. Productivity drops dramatically with the plastic wand vs the precise and quick plastic wand.
    Not even sure why Solo bothers with the plastic except for cost issue. :hammerhead:

    Like I said before Costco a few years back stocked the stainless metal wand version plus the brass tip upgrade all included for the $69 or whatever it was.

    The SOLO brass tips are the bomb. Strongly prefer them to the other tips I have used. Even though I only spot spray currently the fine mist tips are practically unusable unless there is zero wind. Droplet size with the brass tip is near optimal.
