Instructions For Use

Make sure that all connections are fastened tightly.
When filling and pressurising, ensure sprayer is in an upright position.
Engage handle with the pump cap and unscrew pump by turning counter−clockwise, then
remove.
Pour the liquid to be sprayed through the opening at the top . Do not fill the tank above
the rated working volume as the balance of tank space is required for compressed air.
The maximum working volume is marked on the outside of the tank.
Replace the pump and tighten by turning clockwise. Over tightening of the pump may
cause damage to the engagement thread. Pump the handle using full even strokes with
both hands until the pressure gauge indicates the maximum pressure (marked in red).
At this level, there will be enough pressure in the tank to empty its contents without
additional pumping. If the sprayer is not filled to the normal working capacity, the
pressure may be kept below the red mark to avoid excessive pumping.
To spray, squeeze the trigger of the discharge valve. Transport the sprayer by holding
the pump handle with the spare hand. When the trigger is released, spraying stops
immediately.
Do not spray against the wind or in strong winds.
Where a compressed air filler valve is installed in place of the hand pump, please ensure
the valve’s Instructions for Use are followed (as supplied separately).
Maintenance & Care

Release residual pressure from tank before unscrewing the pump, by pulling up the red
safety valve button at the top of the tank.
Empty sprayer after use and rinse carefully with water or suitable cleaning agent. Never
leave spraying liquid in the tank for extended periods (greater than 1 week).
Once the tank is empty there will be some residual liquid remaining. Rinse out this liquid
twice with ½ litre clear water (or cleaning agent recommended by the liquid’s
manufacturer), shaking the sprayer well, and spraying out the diluted liquid. Never
dispose of residues in sewers or on the ground. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for
disposal of materials.
Once a year, clean the slotted filter in the discharge valve with water.
Once a year, lubricate gaskets.
Apply oil sparingly on the piston rod to lubricate the piston washer.

At least once a month, check for leaks and correct functioning of all components under
maximum tolerable working pressure in working and idle mode, including:
o Tightness of all sprayer components at maximum allowable pressure with 5lt of
liquid in tank.
o Correct functioning of air pump, discharge valve (D), safety valve (B), and
pressure gauge (A).
o Condition of tank and pressure hose (C).
o Spray pattern and precise dosage of nozzle.
