What is my take on this Paint Sprayer?
The features in depth
While most sprayers claim about the number of gallons they can handle per year (mostly in the range of 500 gallons), this unit easily handle between 50 to 100 gallons on a weekly basis. This translates to a minimum of 2,600 and a maximum of 5,200 gallons per year. This is, perhaps, the only unit that can handle all materials comfortably. The electronic pressure control of this unit allows the user to adjust the pressure of the sprayer. The rapid clean mode of this device speeds up flushing and cleaning it. Say good bye to unit cleaning problems and messy garden hoses. This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg as the self compensate and self adjust packing of this sprayer increases its lifespan by a great deal.
This is unarguably the only sprayer that hardly requires any maintenance as it has inbuilt controls such as the “electric pressure” and “rapid clean,” which takes care of cleaning the device after use.
There is not too much to boast abut regarding the accessories included with this unit. It ships with the gun, a 50 foot hose, and a TR1 reversible hose.

What I did not like about this sprayer.
Considering the high price of this unit, I expected the manufacturers to use high quality materials. The thin plastic material used for the cover of the motor gets damaged after heavy use. Apart from that, I hope the manufacturer also fixes the intake tube as it is a tight fit, and removing it is a pain. Intake tube is a tight fit.
The siphon balls can get stuck. This is a headache as this inlet valve portion of the fluid segment of the sprayer performs as a check valve when pulling paint. If these balls get stuck, there is no check on the liquid coming out of the sprayer, messing the project. Titan should look into immediately this specific aspect.
