8. Always wear splash goggles and
protective gear and clothing when
filling, using and/or cleaning the
sprayer.
9. Lubricate the rubber lid o-ring with
Silicone Grease prior to first usage
so the o-ring will seal properly.
10.Tighten all connections before using
the sprayer. Some may not be
properly secured and must be
tightened to prevent leakage
3. Warning labels on the machine
If warning labels peel off or become soiled and impossible to
read, you should contact the dealer from which you purchased
the product to order new labels and affix them in the required
location(s).
BEFORE USING:
Lubricate all moveable rubber pieces
with Silicone Grease (o-rings, seals,
piston cup (if applicable), spindle in gun).
Keep breather hole in lid clear of debris.
Lubricating the seals and keeping the
breather hole open allows air into the
tank. Without this airflow, the tank may
collapse and crack due to a vacuum
created by the pump.
Never modify your machine. We will not warrant the sprayer
if you use the remodeled sprayer or don’t observe the proper
usage written in this manual.

7. Operation
Hose clamps are not completely tight.
Please tighten hose clamps prior to using.
Hose clamps are left loose to extend life of gaskets and
fittings.
• Always release pressure in the pump prior to filling,
cleaning, or servicing the sprayer.
• Before opening a container of pesticide or other spray
material, carefully read, understand, and follow all
instructions on the label.
• Do not use flammable materials in the sprayer: they can

• Never use chlorine/bleach, caustic or corrosive materials
in the sprayer, which could result in damage to the unit.
Lubricate all moveable rubber pieces with Silicone
Grease (o-rings, seals, spindle in gun, piston cup
(when applicable). Keep breather hole in lid clear
of debris. Lubricating the seals and keeping the
breather hole open allows air into the tank. Without
airflow, the tank may collapse and crack due to a
vacuum created by the pump.
HOW TO ADJUST THE NOZZLE
• To adjust nozzle, tighten cap (turn clockwise) for fine
atomized spray, or loosen (turn counter-clockwise) for
coarser spray or solid stream.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR UNIT FOR USE
• For best results, the sprayer should be pumped every 5
seconds on a continuous basis. This will maintain your
spraying pressure. If you do not pump, you will not have
pressure to spray.
Before using, lubricate lid o-ring, pump washer, check valve,
and keep breather hole clear of debris. Your failure to
lubricate, clean check valve, and maintain breather hole open
to allow air into the tank, can cause the tank to collapse and
crack, due to the vacuum created by pump.

1. Before you remove cap, be sure there is no pressure in the
tank. in order to release pressure, invert unit upside down
and squeeze spray pistol (aim away from you). Pressure will
escape; when hissing stops, all pressure has been
released. Remove pump assembly by turning
counter-clockwise. The pump handle has two locking
positions, one turning clockwise and one counter-clockwise.
2. Remove lid.
3. A unit that has been used with herbicides should never be
used to spray insecticides, unless the sprayer has been
properly cleaned and all other chemicals neutralized.
Failure to do this could cause you to kill plants that have
been sprayed. Consult with the manufacturer of the
chemicals in use to obtain proper instructions.
4. Always lubricate the o-ring on the lid of the unit, as well as
the check valve. This will extend the life of the seal and is
important for obtaining a proper seal with no leaks.
5. Mix solution in a separate container, following the
manufacturers’ directions.
6. Pour pre-mixed solution through strainer into tank. Reinstall
lid tightly.
7. Place sprayer on back and pressurize tank by pumping
approximately 5 to 15 times.
8. You will need to pump occasionally to maintain the desired
spraying pressure.
9. For best results, the sprayer should be pumped every five
seconds on a continuous basis. This will maintain your
spraying pressure. If you do not pump, you will not have

11.Trouble Shooting Guide
If your sprayer leaks from the top:
Hose clamps are not completely tight. Please
tighten hose clamps prior to use. Hose clamps
are left loose to extend the life of o-rings and
fittings.
1) Check the o-ring seal in your lid to see if it is seated
properly or if it needs to be lubricated. If cracked or
worn due to wear and tear or chemical attack, it
needs to be replaced.
3) Your check valve (breather hole) may be clogged or
blocked by debris. Clear away any excess debris
and lubricate the check valve. Keeping the check
valve (breather hole) open allows air into the tank.
Without airflow, the tank may collapse and crack
due to a vacuum created by the pump
Lubricate all moveable rubber pieces with Silicone
Grease (o-rings, seals, spindle in gun, piston cup
(when applicable). Keep breather hole in lid clear
of debris. Lubricating the seals and keeping the
breather hole open allows air into the tank. Without
airflow, the tank may collapse and crack due to a
vacuum created by the pump.
3) You may have overfilled your sprayer. Check the
liquid level in your sprayer.
4) Never bend over when you have a sprayer full of
chemical on your back. Since there is a breather
hole in the lid, liquid from your sprayer may leak
out. In case of personal contamination: remove
contaminated clothing, remain upright, do not
consume liquids or cause vomiting, and get
professional help immediately.
If your sprayer won’t pressurize:
1) The seals, o-rings, & piston cup (where applicable)
need to be lubricated with Silicone Grease. If cracked
or worn due to wear and tear or chemical attack, they
need to be replaced.
2) The pressure chamber o-ring is not seated properly.
It needs to be properly aligned or lubricated. If cracked
or worn, it needs to be replaced.
If your spray gun’s trigger is sticking:
1) Check the spindle and o-rings inside the gun to
see if they need to be lubricated or replaced due
to wear and tear or chemical attack.
3) There is water in the pressure chamber. This can
happen if your sprayer gets knocked over. To
release the water from the pressure chamber,
simply lift the sprayer over your head while
depressing the spray gun trigger. This will allow
the water in the pressure chamber to come out.
Repeat this procedure 3-4 times to empty water
in the pressure chamber completely.
2) Check the spring in the gun to see if it is damaged
due to wear and tear or chemical attack, replace
if necessary
If your nozzle is clogged:
If your sprayer leaks from the bottom:
1) The 90° elbow is cracked due to wear and tear. It
needs to be replaced
1) Remove the nozzle from your spray wand. Rinse
and clean out the nozzle with water to clear the
debris.
2) The pressure chamber o-ring is not seated properly. It
needs to be properly aligned or lubricated. If cracked
or worn, it needs to be replaced.
2) If unable to remove the debris, try using an air
compressor (if available) to remove the debris
blocking the nozzle
3) The seals, o-rings, & piston cup (where applicable) need
to be lubricated with Silicone Grease. If cracked or
worn due to wear and tear or chemical attack, they
need to be replaced.
3) If the nozzle is damaged from wear and tear,
chemical attack, or abuse it needs to be replaced.
Never smack your nozzle on the ground to remove
a clog. This damages the nozzle body and is not
warrantable
Silicone Grease is the only recommended lubricant for your sprayer. Do not use any
petroleum based lubricants or WD-40, as they will damage the o-rings and seals of your
sprayer.
