Here are some useful tips for using and taking care of your chemical sprayer:
- Always store your equipment in a safe way. Preferably in the cap-off position, away from light and heat.
- Always add the chemicals to the water in the sprayer and not the other way around. Top it up with more water if required.
- Checking hoses and all moving parts of the chemical sprayer is wise to ensure its conditioning and optimal functioning for years to come.
- Clean, rinse and spray clean over the ground, not in the sink.
- Close the chemical sprayer, by carefully and snugly screwing the top or cap on.
- Ensure that no pressure will escape from the chemical sprayer to give you maximum power and efficiency.
- Ensure that you empty the whole tank of the sprayer and not leave any chemical residue behind. Rinse it thoroughly with water before storing your equipment.
- Ensure that you test and fill up the sprayer every time PRIOR to use with clear and clean water. Check its operation and pressure, monitor and test its function and effectiveness, as well as no clogging or obstruction in the nozzles for example.
- Ensure you measure and mix the chemicals correctly, according to the instructions and operation manuals provided with the products and chemical sprayer itself.
- It is unwise to ever carry a sprayer by its hose. The correct way is to always use the handle.
- Larger sprayers can cover more areas, but can get really heavy to lug around if strapped to your back, rather stop and refill often, than putting too much strain on your backside and legs.
- Spray gently and evenly, to cover the whole area of your project, regardless of size or scope. Refill as necessary.
- Squeeze the handle gently to start applying pressure.
- Unused chemicals should also be stored safely. Safely dispose of chemicals from your equipment, watching for your eyes, skin, area surfaces and considering the impact on the environment, wildlife and water-sources close by.
