USING THE PRODUCT
Hose clamps are not completely tight.
Please tighten hose clamps prior to using.
Hose clamps are left loose to extend life of
seals
Lubricate all moveable rubber pieces with
Silicone Grease (o-rings, seals, spindle in
gun, piston cup (if applicable).
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
1. Always inspect your sprayer thoroughly
before and after each use. Check to be
sure hose is securely attached and in
good condition before pressurizing the
tank.
2. Check the work area that the sprayer will
be used in and remove or cover all
valuables that may be damaged by using
sprayer.
3. To reduce the risk of injury,
• Watch out for children, pets, open
windows or freshly washed cars, and
spray safely away.
• Do not allow bystanders in work area.
• Do not point the sprayer nozzle in the
direction of people or pets.
• Pay attention to the direction of the
wind, do not work against the wind.
• Never use the sprayer during windy
conditions.
• Never point a sprayer nozzle toward an

• Clean and rinse tank and spraying
assembly after each use to prevent
crystallizing, which would later cause
clogging and chemical damage to the
unit.
• Do not store sprayer under pressure,
or with spray solution in tank.
• Do not transfer spray materials to other
containers, especially, food and/or
drink containers.
4. For safe operation
• Keep spray materials locked up and
out of reach of children and animals.
• Use only original manufacturer’s
replacement parts.
• As a rule, mix your chemicals in a

clean check valve, and keep breather hole open to allow
air into the tank, can cause the tank to collapse and crack, due
to vacuum created by pump.
1. Before you remove lid, be sure there is no pressure in the
tank. In order to release pressure, invert unit upside down

Trouble Shooting Guide
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.
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.
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.
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.
If your sprayer leaks from the bottom:
If your sprayer leaks from the top:
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
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 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.
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:
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.
