Hypro ULD Nozzles Recommended on Dicamba

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Mar 16, 2018

Decades ago Roundup systemic herbicide was a breakthrough hypro-uld.jpgag chemical that killed all weeds. Monsanto later developed crops that were immune to Roundup so fields could be sprayed “over the top”, further boosting sales. Since then Roundup-resistant weeds have arrived and now to kill all weeds a new more powerful herbicide has been created, Dicamba (sometimes shown as Roundup Xtendimax), along with Dicamba tolerant crops (corn, soybeans, cotton).

Get Ready For Spraying Season By Doing These 3 Things

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Sun, Mar 11, 2018

Spring is almost here and that means that the spraying season is about to begin for many of our customers. In this post we'll revisit a few of our top recommendaitons to make sure you're ready to make the most of spray season:

  1. Check The Temperature:  Only operate your sprayer when the outside temperature is above freezing. If liquid freezes in any of the lines or hoses, it can cause damage and effect the performace of the sprayer.  If needed, spray hose is easily replaced and is available by the roll or by the foot
  2. Flush Your Sprayer:  Before starting your sprayer for the first time this season, flush it out before you use it. After a long winter of sitting idle, it's important run clean water through it before you start it up.
  3. Restock Extra Parts: Keep backstock of the parts you jd9_C.jpguse the most so in the case of a breakdown or emergency you have what you need on hand and can reduce downtime. Popular parts to keep on hand include spray tips and nozzles, a spray gun repair kit like this one for the popular JD9-C spray gun. Spring is an ideal time to take inventory, and restock extra parts.

What You Need To Know About Sprayer Tanks

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Feb 13, 2018

In the market for a new sprayer tank? There are a lot of different sizes and styles to consider, so selecting the right type of sprayer tank will be dependent upon your specific needs. Not to worry, Sprayer Depot has a large selection of tanks for you to choose from!

Let's review some of the sprayer tank basics:

PCO Poly Tanks are commonly used for pest control but are actually multi-purpose portable tanks. In addition to being used for pest control, they are also often used in the lawn care, industrial, nursery and pressure washing industries.  pco-tank-sprayer-depot.jpgThese tanks can be selected for stationary or transportable applications both indoor and outdoors. They range in size from 50-300 gallon tanks, and typically have a rounded bottom for best fluid drainage. A quality feature for these tanks are the self-supporting legs and the fact that a variety of different chemicals can be safely stored in them because of the strong, chemical resistant material from which they are made.

Vertical Tanks are free standing tanks with a flat bottom for indoor or outdoor installations; they come in a variety of sizes ranging from a 10 gallon to 12,500 gallon tank. vertical-dome-tank-sprayer-depot.jpgVertical tanks are designed with either a dome or a flat top. The significance of the flat top is that their design features additional flats for fitting installation or mounting. Both the vertical dome top tank and the vertical flat top tank have walls that are translucent for level viewing and equipped with gallon indicators.

Low-Profile-Rectangle-Tanks The low-profile design of these tanks  allows for easy fitting into backs of pickup trucks and tight spaces. These tanks are available starting at a 50 gallon size and up to 300 gallons and are great for both mobile or stationary applications.

Inductor-Tanks  Inductor tanks are selected as inductor-tank-sprayer-depot.jpgsupply tanks for application systems and when a more complete drain-out of stored liquids is required in indoor or outdoor applications. These tanks range in size from 15 gallons to 110 gallons, in addition to offering translucent walls for level viewing.

Questions and Answers From Our Blog

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Feb 09, 2018

It's not unusual for the team at Sprayer Depot to receive product questions, whether it be by telephone, email, social channels, or in the comment section of our blog. We try to respond with the best possible, easy to understand information, including links to specific products, if available. In this post we'll highlight some of the various types of questions and answers that have been exchanged on our blog. 

Q: "My rig is pulsing and has very low pressure. It will start spraying perfectly, but then go back down to low pressure. I tried cranking up the psi, but it didn't  work. I've been working with a very frustrating rig. Please help! There is no clog in gun isn't the issue. I think motor is going out, but maybe you can help" - Joe M.

A: Intermittent performance indicates that you may have a bad pressure switch. This switch is located on the front of the pump and has two red wires attached to it.  Switch Assemblies are available for most models.

Q: "I'm starting up our Hypro Pump - D503 for the season. It will build up pressure to 400 psi but when I engage the nozzle, it drops below 200 psi or lower but returns to 400 psi once the nozzle is turned off. I've checked and tightened all the connections. Cleaned the strainer on the intake and it's good. Thoughts?" - Chris T.

A: A drop in pressure when engaging the trigger normally indicates an air leak on the suction side. We suggest making sure the suction strainer gasket is set properly to form a tight seal and the bowl is not cross threaded or over tightened. You may also try watching the intake line to see if any air bubbles appear when activating the gun.

Q: We have an  8000-643-236 Transfer 12VDC Pump 8000-543-236_original.jpgthat will run through a wand and then it takes longer and longer to pressurize. Eventually, it constantly runs and will not pressure up. Any ideas?

A: There are a few issues that can cause the symptoms you are describing. First, we would check the suction side leading to the pump and ensure there are no loose fittings or air leaks. If air is coming into the suction line it can get trapped inside the pump head or run through the pump to the outlet line.  This can cause the pump to not shut off or pressurize. If all fittings are tight and there is no air trapped in the system we inspect the check valves in the pump head for any swelling or debris. If the valves are in working order it may just be that the pressure switch on the front of the pump head needs to be replaced.

Q: We purchased a sprayer from you that has a Honda GX160 motor and a 410xl roller pump. We modified the system to have two spray guns, and with the added gun we are experiencing lower psi than we desire. What would be the best solution? Would the 6500XL-R work for us or would we need more gear reduction? Thank you for your help.

A: The best solution would be modifying the sprayer with a pump that has higher pressure capability like the Hypro Pump - 6500XL-R.  This pump does require a gas engine with gear reduction so you will have to change the engine and pump to make this work.  The 6500XL-R has a max pressure of 300 compared to the 150 psi of the 4101XL which will allow you to generate good pressure on both lines.  If you want to use the same engine you could change the pump to a diaphragm pump with a gear reduction built in. Options for this would be the Hypro Pump - D252GRGI or Hypro Pump - D30GRGI.

Q: I'm using a Shurflo 60 psi 3 gpm pump with a 250 foot hose. Can I hook up two pumps to get more psi at the end of the hose or would one higher psi pump like a 100psi be better?

A: The higher pressure pump would be your best option.  Combining the two pumps in one system could cause issues such as cycling and cavitation leading to premature failure.

Q: We spray a lot of bleach with handheld pump style sprayers. However we go through a lot of them because of corrosion. Do you have something that is of a higher quality?

A: Bleach can be very corrosive and eat away at the seals of most handheld sprayers.  To combat this Solo manufactures a 1 gallon Bleach sprayer.  The Viton seals and poly wand increase the corrosion resistance and should increase the life of the sprayer.  Here is a link to it on our website:

Product Highlight: Long Range Spray Guns

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Jan 26, 2018

In pesticide or agricultural spray applications that require long range and/or height, the use of professional spray equipment is not just practical but necessary in order to effectively reach tall trees and other areas that would otherwise be out of range.

As one of our most popular long range spray guns, this Udor model is a high performance spray gun with a 21" barrel.
