ALL U DO IS PUMP THE HANDLE UP AND DOWN UNTIL YOU FEEL ALLOT OF RESISTANCE, THAT PRESURIZES THE CANTAINER, IF THAT IS NOT HAPPENING THEN THE PUMP IS DEFECTIVE.

Sprayer looses pressure pump issue ?


You can take the intake part of the pump apart and clean/lube the diaphragm of the pump. If you didn't clean it out last time it was used there will be residual or cake built up. Make sure the down snorkel is clear and doesn't have any contamination in the tube. Check the screen/filter also.

When I pump my sprayer the pressure does not hold. The sprayer is new, about 3 weeks old.


I would return it to where you bought it. It sounds like the seal between the cover and the container is defective. Take a small container of soapy water and gently sponge it all around the cover of the sprayer. Pump it up and note where the bubbles form--this is where your leak is.
If you are not able to return it, check to see if there is a rubber insert that should be evenly seated around the cover where it screws on. You may be able to tighten that gap by using pipe thread tape around the ridges, but this is a temporary situation.

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.

Hi there
There are many possible reasons for your sprayer not pressurizing. If the pump lever is moving freely and does not seem to be building pressure while pumping it is possible that the O-ring at the valve is damaged, the seal in the pressure regulator is leaking, the piston or the collar is worn. Any of these problems will require disassembly of the unit and inspection of each part. If you do feel resistance building as you pump but quickly loose pressure you likely have leaks in the diaphram, it's seal, the pressure cylinder or the tank itself.
If you are comfortable disassembling the unit and inspecting the parts for wear or damage most of the individual replacement parts are fairly easy to replace and readily available online from Solo or at many retail outlets and supply companies. Solo has done a great job with how-to videos and instructions for each procedure on their web site www.solousa.com
If you are not comfortable disassembling and repairing your sprayer yourself you can try contacting a mower/equipment repair shop in the Redding area as is seems the nearest Authorized Solo sprayer repair center is Cloverdale Saw in Cloverdale CA, 707-894-2273

Trying to find how i can build my own trailer mounted sprayer for dust control


No need to re-invent the wheel when building your trailer mounted sprayer. Your local Northern tool Store, or at the address below,

http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/category_6970_166839

you will find all the parts that you will need to complete your project. I have purchased several different types of sprayers, tanks, pressure pumps and parts from them over the years. They have a helpfull staff and most parts are in stock. Take a look at ready made trailer mounted sprayers there to pattern yours after then design in your special needs.
My first portable sprayer was made from four 55 gallon drums loaded onto the back of my pickup. For the pump I used a modified 2" trash/water pump reduced to 1' pipe then seven nozzles. Worked great however 220 gallons of water did not last very long. Problems began with the weight of water in large quantity. I decided I needed about 1000 gallons and found that I needed to deal with about 7500 lbs of weight. Oh well, enough already, good luck with your project and email if you have questions.

Sprayer Question


Hose end sprayers are the simplest and least expensive of the category. A sprayer jar is attached to a regular garden sprayer. Concentrated material is added to the sprayer jar. An adjustment on the jar determines the amount delivered. The force of the water through the hose pulls the material up from the jar and mixes and dilutes it with the water. A built-in anti-siphon device prevents unused material from being pulled back into your water supply. Compression or tank sprayers are the most common type of spray equipment. Concentrated material is added to the tank. Water is then added to a marked fill line. The remaining air is pressurized by pumping the handle a designated number of times. A control lever on the wand controls the spray pattern and amount. Compression sprayers provide a precise, on target, non-drift spray good for soil and lawn pests. Adjust the sprayer for a coarse, drenching spray, a concentrated stream or a fine mist. Tank capacities range from 1 quart to over 3 gallon for handheld models. Homeowner type backpack sprayers hold up 4 gallons. The tanks may be made from polyethylene plastic, galvanized steel or stainless steel. In addition to treatments for pests and diseases, compression sprayers are designed for applying cleaning solutions for decks and siding. Backpack sprayers are operated in the same manner as the handheld compression sprayer. The over-the-shoulder configuration makes it easier to carry the heavier load of material. Some backpack models also use a lever-style pump to maintain pressure without removing the unit form your back. Powered sprayers rely on a gasoline engine for spray power. Great for larger yards or gardens due to portability and capacity (12 gallons). Dusters are a slightly different breed. Dry powders (mostly for blooming plants such as roses) are added to a canister and applied by manually pumping. NOTE: Compression sprayers deliver liquid under pressure. Compression sprayers are powerful and efficient tools. This fact also makes them potentially dangerous. Always read the manufacturer's instructions and safety precautions carefully.
