Garden pressure hose

I have a cheap 2 litre garden sprayer which was not holding its pressure so I dismantled it. I easily took off the top lid but I now cannot find a way to put it back on. The model number is Z31834. Would be grateful for any help but it is not a matter of life or ***** Many thanks Larry

SOURCE: black and decker VP450 battery

Check large rubber "O" ring under pump top and outlet hose. If that is OK then probably their is an internal leak in a hose. It can be fixed if you are handy with vacuum tube or fuel hose purchase from local auto supply house. The internal hoses are 1/4" and 3/8" or metric equivalent. The pump head comes apart by unscrewing Philips head screws and separating the housing halves. Take a photo with your digital camera before working inside unit so you will remeber how it fits back together.

I had the same problem and had to take apart the handle portion and found that there was something in the line at that point. After cleaning it I had the same pressurse as when it was new.

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.

How do you dismantle the hand pump .. mine is not building up pressure when it is getting empty and I cant seem to be able to dismantle the pump part to check the o rings etc.

Never seen one of this type and if its all plastic which i suspect then its clean the nozzle and if that doesnt work then its the recycle bin iam afraid as a lot of these cheap things do not come apart without breaking

Lid does not seal---very loose

If sprayer doesnt seal against pressure, I suggest check cover gasket A (image 1). Check pump cylinder gasket B (image 2) and additionally, check the procedure if pump dont build pressure. on how to remoce pump cylinder on follow lines.


If pump doesnt build pressure... in most instances, failure of the pumo to build air pressure in the sprayer is due to dry or worm plunger cul leather. To work on cup leather, always remove plunger from pumo cylinder. Do not attempt to oil cup leather through breather hole in **** cap.

First, unthread pumo cap A (image 1). If cap is too tight, and if pumo will build even slight temporary pressure, pressurizing the tnak will make it easier to loosen cap. Once cap is lossened, release tank pressure. Hold pump cylinder by inserting hand through tank filler openning (image 2), and unscrew cap all the way. Pull plunger from cylinder, and remove cylinder from inside the tank.


Place a few drops of clea oil (not heavier than SAE 30) on leather, and massage into leather until it is soft. Replace plunger cup leather if damaged (image 3). to remove plunger leather assembly, use coin rather than screw driver in the slot of the plunger cup retainer. To reassemble, hold pump cylinder in tank openning, with squared edge of flange, at top of cylinder, toward tank wall.


Hope this helps to solve it.

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.

Roundup 2 Gallon Sprayer -- must have exceeded pressure. Now it will not hold ptessure. Gasget seal seems OK is there any "reset"

There is a built in relief valve that is not keeping the pressure in...
these are very cheap plastic valves and so there probably is no fixing it...
I would buy another roundup with the sprayer and then dump the contents from the bad one into the new one ... the stuff does not go bad...

Im am not getting any heat either in manual or automatic. I took the hoses of the core and was able to blow air through (there was anti-freeze present). I ran the engine (hot) and no water came out...

i have a 1998 olds intrigue and had the same problem. In my case i had to pop on of the hoses off from the water put with the other hose still connected. I took a high presssure car wash sprayer on the rinse mode NO SOAP. Put the sprayer into the one hose about 1 min, then put that hose back on the water pump and did the same with the other heater hose. This completly solved my problem. You have prolly got a clog in ur heater core as I did. Just make sure no 1 sees u at the car wash doing this cuz it a major D.E.C no no, But sure to fix a clog a simple house hold garden hose will not work u need a high pressure water hose and a car wash is cheap and effective.

How to remove lid

The only way that I know of is to hold the bottom part (jug) securely and turn the pump handle. If you put some pressure on there and just hold firmly it should eventually start to unscrew. You need to push the pump handle down as far as it goes and it will lock into some "ears" on the pump assy so it will turn the pump assy as well.

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.

Immediate pressure loss

your dip tube inside the tank has come loose or has a leak near the top. instead of fluid being pushed up the dip tube into the wand hose the air in the tank is just escaping. You will have to remove the wand hose and figure out where the leak is and fix the dip tube.
