I have a 15 gallon Fimco trailer sprayer. Last year I used bleach/water in it to clean my vinly siding 2 story house. I left a small amount of bleach/water inside last fall. Now, I can't get it to turn on. I bought a new switch today. I still can't get it on. What else can I try? Thanks!

Bleach gives off corrosive vapors, so the internal parts of the pump may have corroded over time. Least expensive fix is to disassemble the pump, find and replace any corroded parts, but you'll be tinkering for a day and it may not be repairable anyway. More expensive but faster is to replace the pump - check the GPM rating and find it here for about $60 - $100. Good luck!

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.

Pump sprayer has no suction


We have the exact same sprayer 2.1 GPM for our FIMCO and the engine runs but it will not suction. This happened once before last year and because it was under warranty they replaced it. Now it is happening again but FIMCO will not stand by this part because they don't "Warranty their warrenties.". What a bunch of ****! Stand by your products for pete's sake!!! If anyone has any solutions or ideas it would help us out a lot!

I also have a FIMCO 15 gallon 12 v spot sprayer, won't prime


I use an emulsifier with Round-up to make it stick better to the weeds (Sticky Spreader). The emulsifier had made the solution less viscous and was not moving through the wire mesh filter that comes out of the bottom of the tank. I removed the filter and it works fine. I have a filter in the handle anyway so there is no need for two filters for my application.

LAWN SPRAYER PUMP WILL NOT SUCTION


Disconnect the sprayer boom hose from Y splitter, and dd another Y splitter, then reconnect the boom hose to one side of the added splitter. Add a washing machine supply (female/female) to the other side of new Y. now attach garden hose to washing machine line and turn on the water faucet with pump running. This will charge and/or backwash the pump. Once pressure is achieved, turn on the boom and check for fluid movement, then turn the washer supply valve on Y to off, and disconnect. The pump should be primed and be cycling fluid from tank and back to tank. Ready to shift to boom for use. I leave the washer hose and assembly zip-tied onto sprayer for easy future priming, and pump wash between uses.

Fimco Sprayer , 25 gallon, 2.1 gpm, 12 Volts - Blowing fuses


Soiunds like you either have one of two things. Either the pump motor is bad or you have a wire that is shorted out. look for chaffed or bare wires or burnt spots on the sprayer and the machine towing it. one of the two is your issue. Hope this helps!
