I put a new diaphram in the pump and now the pump handle doesn't pump on the proper time of the stroke. It is like it is pumping on the backstroke.How do I get the proper timing back


Hi Donald
Not knowing the details of your pump I can only start by asking one question....
Is it possible to install the new diaphragm upside down?
Reply as a comment to this post to let me know what you find.
Cheers

My solo backpack sprayer won't pump up when I use the handle. What's wrong and how to repair it?


chabunga offered really good info...except for the suggestion to use Vaseline on the 'O' ring. NEVER use Vaseline on anything rubber, because it is a petroleum based product and it will cause the ring to deteriorate. Use a non-petroleum based lubricant instead.

I have the hudson eliminator sprayer and squeeze the trigger I just get one burst of spray and then a couple of drips. I do have it pumped up all the way. What is the problem?


IF your sprayer is full you should be good to go after 20 or so full stroke pumps

If it is not spraying unscrew the adjustable tip and clean out the little holes around the end

If you leave spray in the unit after using it it will get crudded up and plug up

I have a hudson classic sprayer and have no instructions.


The pumping mechanism should unscrew from the plastic bottle. Push the handle all the way down and try to unscrew the pump while holding the bottle steady.

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.
