Hi,
When that happens it is usually because you have dirt in the nozzle or it has not been clened properly.
Replace the nozzle or clean it...

SOURCE: sprayer is spitting instead of spraying, why?

Either the fluid you are attempting to spray is too thick or the little holes in the spray head are partially clogged. Begin by running some small copper wire thru each hole to unclog it and see if that solves your problem. If not, filter the liquid you want to spray and dilute it as needed.

I have a Kraft tool texture sprayer 500 model, I have noticed lately that the oil is slowly syponing out of the holding tank and its running into the air hose so when I turn it on it spits out oil lef


As the hopper gun does not use oil, you are either spraying an oil based material which is separating in the hopper, or you are using a compressor that is leaving oil in the airline; this could happen if the compressor is worn and oil is leaking past the piston into the air.

Most airless spray guns spit a bit when you pull or release the trigger because the paint between the spray tip and the paint valve is under pressure but not enough to atomise the paint. If you increase the pressure you may reduce the spit to a point when you don't notice it. A blocked filter could slow the paint getting through to the tip cause lower pressure.

Paint gun not shooting correctly


Seeing how you have really stated what the problem is (spitting, clogged, won't shut off, fan pattern wont adjust Etc) and there could be several different things wrong- lets go over some basic spraying A B C'S- always strain the paint through a strainer bag or cone this will remove any debri that might clog the tip, *THINNING when you spray or atomize paint it should always be thinned it will actually cover much better if you thin it with the appropriate solvent water for latex thinner for oil base you want to stay in the 15% range alittle bit more on hot days. The shape of the spray that comes out of the tip is called "fan pattern" or "tip fan" "fan size" you can adjust the fan pattern from 9:00 - 3::00 or sideways to straight up and down or to a small circle this is done by moving the "tip housing retainer" keep a piece of cardboard to practice and see. IMPORTANT:When you have finished spraying you need to clean the entire gun by running the right solvent through the gun untill nothing but clean solvent is coming out dissemble the gun remove and clean needle and needle housing this is not very complicated and is paramount to maintaining any spray equipment for sure the gun....

Using Ortho weed and crabgrass concentrate... what setting do i use on my Ortho hose end sprayer


Here is what they say at their site:

{ ...
How do I use the Ortho Dial 'N Spray Multi-Use Hose-End Sprayer?

Sprayer Support


Measure the exact amount of material required for the job. Adjust the spray precisely - from coarse, drenching coverage to very fine mist to a long range pinpointed stream. Start and stop the spray quickly and at will. Prevent over-spraying by using the long-reaching hose and spray wand. Spray up or down as well as underneath leaves (where most insects and plant diseases can be found). Buy concentrated lawn and garden treatment materials, which in many cases is more cost-effective than the pre-mixed versions.

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.

Sprayer tips


Read and FOLLOW EXACTLY the spray material directions for mixing and use. Wear protective clothing including gloves and eye protection when spraying. Do not smoke, eat or drink when spraying; "wash up" afterwards. Spray on a calm day. Otherwise, winds may blow spray material off target. It's often best to spray in the early morning or late afternoon so excessive heat won't quickly evaporate the spray material. Follow the directions for use and maintenance that come with your applicator. Dispose of left over spray material and clean your applicator according to the directions on the spray material and with the applicator. Keep spray materials and applicator away from children and pets. Do not store spray materials in any but the original container in which they were purchased.
