Garden hand pump sprayer not presssurising


There is probably a leak somewhere in the hosing or gasket. As you try to pump it up, take some soapy water and pour it around sealed areas of the sprayer. Look for bubbles as the sprayer leaks air. Also check the nozzle of the sprayer for a clog. Rinse it thoroughly with hot water until it has cleared any blockage.

My sprayer is new, but does not keep the pressure, any idea's? It's a 2 gal, pump up type sprayer.


Check under the lid/cover for a rubber gasket. This may have gotten unseated when putting the sprayer top on. It must form a tight seal around the lip of the sprayer top in order to keep the pressure. Alternative: Put water in the sprayer leaving some air on top to build pressure. Put a few drops of dish soap inside and gently stir. Put the cover on, and tilt the sprayer to coat all areas at the top. Start pumping and see where the bubbles come out---there is your leak. If it is near where the sprayer hose enters, and it is a permanent mount, you may have a bad seal. If the sprayer hose unscrews, you may need a new rubber washer inside. If bubbles come out of the wand, or other plastic seams, you may have a crack in the plastic. Depending on the location, you could epoxy over the crack to seal it permanently. Good luck.

My 2 gal yellow ortho lawn sprayer will not get pressure to spray when I pump it. What can I do to resolve the issue?


First Check the gasket around the lid, and the one around the pump housing for any kind of leaks. If this does not solve the the problem, check the sprayer to be sure it is not on all the time you are pumping.
After that you may need to invest in a new sprayer.

It keeps losing pressure. No matter how hard I screw on top, I hear a hissing sound as the air leaks out.


Check and replace the o-ring or seal on the top and check all connections for tightness and dry rot. Good Luck...

No water flow in kitchen sink


Sorry to say, you will need to replace that faucet, and also when you are shopping for a replacement, inquire about a rosette to cover the hole left by the voided sprayer.
Good luck...

Sprayer wont spray or hold pressure


We use the both the 425 and 475 solo sprayers most days at work and when they start to lose pressure ( after 6 months of daily professional use) we purchase a complete seal kit and put it through them. The only part I can't work out how to remove is the inside cylinder, other than that everything else is easily removed and replaced.
