    Here is a NO PUMP Backpack sprayer that I use and I am real happy with it. The battery does make it heavier than the normal Back Pack so being lazy I put it on a Golf Bag pull behind dolly and just spray away. The wand-tip that comes with it, is not the best and most of us change out the whole wand for a Tee Jet wand and interchangeable nozzles.

    Ric is right--if you don't want to pump --go with the battery powered setup. But keep the pressure low and you should be able go low-volume to cover 2000 sqft per gallon. Wave the wand back and forth at a consistant pace. Practice with water on concrete. One tank does 8000 sqft, once you understand how to do it. .
