A 1 B Chemical Recommendations Maintenance To keep the pump working smoothly and efficiently, the plunger gasket needs to be lubricated often by applying a lubricant, such as petroleum jelly, around the outside of the plunger gasket. Do not use: D • Flammable Products (gasoline, diesel fuel, hydraulic oil, etc.) • Hot or Boiling Liquids • Products containing Acetone/Acetate/Acetic Acid (paint thinner, some concrete sealers) • Highly Viscous (thick) materials (tar, high-solid paint or stain • Paint and Stains 1. Remove pump assembly (D) from the tank (A). See Fig. 1. 2. Unlock the pump handle and pull it out as far as it will go. 3. With a flat blade screwdriver, push down on the tabs on each side of the pump to release the locking cap. See Fig. 2. A • Products containing Chlorine (Bleach, Pool Water, etc.) • Strong Acids or Bases • Strong Solvents • Lacquers or Lacquer Thinners • Turpentine • Epsom Salt • Mineral Spirits • Vinegar • Citrus-Based Cleaner • Products containing Peppermint Oil or Peanut Oil A Fig. 1 • Pull up and the handle and the plunger assembly should come out of the pump cylinder. • Spread a small amount of lubricant on the outer edge of plunger gasket. 4. To reassemble, insert the plunger assembly into the cylinder and snap the cap back into place Fig. 2 Troubleshooting Problem Probable Cause Solution The spray solution or air leaks into the pump cylinder. The check valve on the bottom of the cylinder is unable to seal properly due to dirt, residue, or damage. Remove the pump assembly and examine the check valve. Clean if dirty; replace if necessary. For spare parts, call 1-800-253-4642 The hose leaks air at the tank connection. The tank nut is loose or the hose insert O-ring is damaged. Unscrew hose nut from tank and ensure that the hose is pushed all the way into the tank up to the ridge in the hose. Make sure the O-ring is properly seated and not damaged. Tighten the hose tank nut or replace the hose O-ring. There is a bad spray pattern or low spray volume. The nozzle is clogged, the nozzle is tightened too fat, or the pressure is low in the sprayer. Slowly turn nozzle counterclockwise to ensure it is open. If still low spray volume, remove the nozzle, the diffuser, and clean. Remove the wand and clean. If the wand cannot be unclogged, replace it or repressurize the tank. The nozzle leaks when the flow control is closed and/or the sprayer will not stop spraying. The flow control is open because the lever is locked in the on position. Make sure level is pulled all the way to the off position. If problem persists and/or lever continues to get stuck, completely disassemble the flow control. Inspect all components, clean, and lubricate all seals, especially the white plunger inside the flow control cap. If needed, replace the flow control. Household petroleum jelly can be used for lubrication. There is a leak at the tank opening. The pump assembly is not sealed tightly into the tank. Thoroughly clean the pump cylinder O-ring and surrounding area and apply grease or petroleum jelly to the pump O-ring. The Cylinder O-ring is damaged. Replace the O-ring. For spare parts, call 1-800-253-4642. Fluid leaks from the pressure relief valve. The tank is over filled.
