What is the mixing ratio to 1 gal of water?


Their products are here, but they don't tell you the usage. It has to be on the label by law. The rear label usually lifts up to reveal a small book of three or four pages. If it isn't there, contact the company via the website.

The does have label details here
http://www.spectracide.com/Customer-Help/Labels-and-MSDS.aspx
For the Spectracide it is 1/2 oz to a gallon, but it depends on what type of grass you have. I will copy and paste the label details, but I doubt the format will stick, but it is all there.

Remove all pressure by keeping the hose open until no pressure is left. place pump handle down toward tank. Turn count counter clock wise to unscrew. Take assembly out of tank then fill tank. Reinstall in reverse order.

Is the reed valve part of the pressure switch


relief valve should only open in a over pressure condition. If it is opening prior to reaching pressure ....replace it.

No pressur in my home and garden sprayer


You have a leak. First ensure the pressure relief valve is closed. You can try spraying soapy water on the outside while pumping it up, and look for bubbles. The one way valve might be leaking, too. Good luck.

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


Hi,
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...

Pressure relief valve


The pressure relief valve only leaks when there is excess pressure in the system, possible causes could be excessive static pressure, overheating, faulty pressure vessel or undersized pressure vessel.

No spray at all, line clean, hand valve not opening


usually have to take it apart! Try the lime away products for bathrooms to get rid of the hardened product left in the line. I don't remember any filter being on this model or any easy way to disassemble. Hot soapywater might be another choice.

COMPRESSOR RUNS, FILLS TANK, AND THEN LEAKS OFF ALL THE PRESSURE. WHAT IS GOING ON?


Is the air "leaking" from the pressure relief valve? If so it is either faulty or it is doing what is supposed to do. The pressure relief valve is there in case the pressure switch fails.The tank could blow up if the pressure switch fails, so the pressure relief valve is there as a secondary measure to insure the tank does not receive too much air pressure. Assuming your gauge is operating properly, watch the gauge to see if it reaches the maximum pressure (check your manual to find the maximum PSI) or if it goes over the maximum pressure. If it goes over the maximum pressure then replace the pressure switch. If it the motor stops at the maximum pressure, replace the pressure relief valve.
