You have two choices to fix this problem: First thin the paint and/or add a conditioner like Floetrol to make the paint flow properly. Second, use a tip with a bigger opening. On sprayer tips there is a three digit number (.ABC). The first number (A) is one half the spray pattern size when held 12 inches from the wall. A two will give you a four inch pattern, five will give you a ten inch pattern, etc. The last two numbers (BC) are the oriface size. For latex you should be using at least a .017 or .019 tip but if the paint has to be very thick you may need a .021 or larger.

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 own this 0525151 and am trying to spray a latex fence stain. worked for a little while, then nothing. I tried thinning the paint with water and a paint thinner product recommended by the Home Depot...


We used paint sprayers every day for years.

Tips come in different sizes. With oil base paints we used the small tip like a 4-11. With latex we used bigger tips, like a 5-17. Really big spray rigs use 5-19. Tip size matters.

Another important thing is to strain the paint. The paint store sells 5-gallon-size strainers. Put the strainer over a 5-gallon bucket. Pour the paint into the bucket. Lift the strainer up, and finally grab it with your hands and squeeze the paint out. Do this in the grass and then wash out the strainer for next time. Put a lid over the paint bucket so the paint stays wet and clean.

We used high pressure sprayers, and then wrapped a filter right over the intake... but the tips would still clog. We had guns with reversible tips ... rotate the tip around, fire the gun, and the clog was gone.

Maybe your tip is getting clogged real fast. When that happens, the gun simply doesn't shoot. The old guns, we had to take them apart every time the tip clogged. I don't know about the tip on your gun.

Your paint sprayer is probably not very high pressure, which means it would clog easily if stuff was in the paint ... and latex is thick and sticky and it gets crusty as it dries.

Suggestion: I would ask Sherwin Williams about the tip. See if they sell parts or tips at the Home Depot or Sherwin Williams.

Also you can clean the gun out with lacquer thinner. See if the lacquer thinner will pass through the gun. I would take it apart and clean everything with a toothbrush, and soak it in lacquer thinner. It might work, but the home-depot-home-owner-spray-equipment is generally not made for more than a few jobs. Especially the wagner-diaphragm-type guns.

Something else you might consider for a cedar-type picket fence. A roller. Sherwin Williams sells thick shaggy roller covers that hold a lot of paint. The little cheap roller covers can't paint a fence or anything else because they're too thin. We almost never sprayed a fence. We'd put masonite along the bottom and then just threw paint up with a roller [slap it on as the customers used to claim] >>> for cedar pickets, thin the paint with water (1 gallon water per 5 of paint) so it flows into the holes and gaps. Roll the fence, and then go back and touch up with a brush or the sprayer. A paint job on a fence always looks better the next day [unlike some things] so sometimes it's best to wait 1 day before doing the brush work.

I have a 15 gallon Fimco trailer sprayer. Last


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!

Not much pressure on fimco 15 gallon sprayer - purchased new 2.1 gpm motor - it sprays but not a lot comes out - seems not much pressure - Thanks.


Is it possible that the pick-up tube inside the sprayer is clogged up, or the hose it damaged? Maybe dirt in the spray handle/wand?

Insufficient Pressure From Pump


Take the strainer at the end of the hose on the tank off. Throughly clean it. I used an old tooth brush, then ran hot water through it several times. Also drained the tank and flushed it out 3-4 times with fresh water, then ran fresh water through the pump for several minutes

Hope this helps

Fimco 15 gal sprayer has lost prime


There is an o-ring inside that is probably bad. I tore my pump apart and found it and repaired it. My sprayer was about two years old as well.

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!
