The spray wand has a short plastic tube that the rubber hose slides over. Here's what it should look like, if it's not broken: Need replacement part for 16-gal sprayer.  It's - 4bc420c.jpg
A 'band clamp' goes over the rubber hose to tighten it onto that little tube. If the band clamp is missing, you can get one at a hardware store - just find the size that fits over the rubber hose. If the rubber hose end is torn or cracked, just make a new clean cut with a knife.
But if the plastic tube has broken off the wand, you need to get a new wand. Good news - it's not expensive. This one's only 8 bucks.
Hope that helps you, if so please rate my solution, thanks and good luck!

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
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.

My Ortho spray gun is not functioning.

Is it a hose end sprayer? Probably something blocking the pickup tube. Wash it out well with water. Wear a faceshield and use compressed air to blow opposite normal flow. To prevent this fill the sprayer through a fine mesh filter.

Graco magnum paint sprayer won't prime

Airless won't prime- I always start trouble shooting an Airless that won't build/hold pressure look at sump hose inlet filter (the hose that goes into the paint if its got paint debris on it clean off filter and pour the paint thru a strainer bag into a clean 5 gal bucket-also remove the filter housing on the spayer and clean and flush and replace filter and housing- the shaft or the metal sleave has two ball bearings called "check balls" that maybe stuck turn on sprayer and put a piece of wood on shaft and give it a few good taps this will knock the check balls loose if after all this fails then you need to have new packings put in becuase the old ones are worn this is pretty easy to see because the rod the compresses the paint will have signs of paint on it indicating that the packings are worn..

Looking to replace triger (leaks)

NorthStar brand equipment comes from Northern Tool. You can't replace the trigger, but they sell the replacement spray wand here and it's only $11.99. There are other wands, some longer, etc. They are pretty universal -- you just slide them onto the hose and tighten the band clamp. Good luck! If this is helpful, please rate my answer, thanks!

How do I change the gun filter on Campbell hausfeld airless sprayer?

Assuming it is detached from hose, I would first unscrew the skinny end of the filter housing that goes into the gun at the gun handle. That's cause it looks fragile and allows easier access to the wrench positions where you break down the hex fitting from the filter housing. After unscrewing the hex fitting the filter cartridge should pull out easily for cleaning or replacement.

The hose which feeds washer fluid to the hood sprayer has broken off right at the point of connection. Do you think I may need to replace the hood sprayer?

No. Remove any hose remaining and replace it with a new hose. Attach to the sprayer and you should be good to go.

Instructions for using ortho tree sprayette

The Ortho Tree and Shrub Sprayette has a fixed mixing jet set to a 24:1 ratio. 5.3 ounces of spray concentrate in the jar will mix to produce 1 gallon of diluted spray. The jar has a capacity of 42.7 ounces, so you can spray up to 8 gallons with 1 filling. If you look at the side of the jar, you will see two filling scales. On the left is the diluted spray capacity, and on the right is the concentrate scale. So you will see 8 gallons opposite 32 ounces, for instance.

You must dilute concentrates to the 24:1 mixing concentration. So if your concentrate says 1 ounce/gallon, and you want to spray 6 gallons, put in 6 ounces and add water to the jar to the 32 ounce level.
