3 Steps for Smooth Sprayer Startup Next Year

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Oct 27, 2017

Reprinted from Hypro.Pentair.com

The cooler temps have arrived for many of us and that means snow, ice and below-freezing weather.  In this post we're sharing some great information published by our friends at Hypro on the key steps to take now to ensure your sprayer is ready for your next spray season.

  • Adequately flush the pump and solution system of all chemical residue. Be sure to remove all strainer screens and clean any residue that has built up on the screens.
  • To prevent oxidation of components, fill solution system components with antifreeze and spray a small volume through the system (from tank to nozzle). This procedure will prevent elastomer components from ‘drying out’ and remove residue that continues to attack system components.
  • Improve the storage life of Centrifugal Pumps with cast iron components by using an antifreeze with a rust inhibitor.
  • Roller Pumps benefit by being stored with a light oil. Rotate the shaft to ensure that all internal surfaces are coated with oil. Plug ports after lubricating the pump.
  • Diaphragm and Piston/Plunger Pumps should be stored with RV antifreeze in them.
  • Leave Regulators, Unloaders and Valves in a loose or open state so that they do not stick upon startup.

We are committed to providing not only the best products and the best prices in the industry, but also the best service to all of our valued customers. Every single customer we serve is important to us which is why we analyze their feedback and access their overall experience with our company. 

With more than 40 years of experience in the spray equipment industry, we have always placed customer satisfaction as one of our top priorities. Sprayer Depot's mission statement reflects this:

“To WOW people by exceeding expectations."

This mission is simple in that we strive to bring the customer experience to the forefront, by making the shopping experience easy for customers to find and purchase spray equipment, parts and accessories, at the most competitive prices in the industry.

To that end, we offer several ways by which customers can provide feedback on our products, on our team members and on their overall satisfaction with our company. One of the ways we capture and record customer satisfaction scores is through the customer satisfaction surveys that we offer via Bizrate. Bizrate is an unbiased third-party company that compiles and indexes customer feedback to generate an average star rating. Every customer that places an order online receives a customer satisfaction survey and their feedback becomes a part of our total star rating. Sprayer Depot has an overall 4.8 star rating (out of 5 stars), a score that is top rated and which is published and can be viewed on our website and in all our online search ads.  Here is a sample of some of our recent reviews received through Bizrate from actual customers:

In addition to the Bizrate surveys, we also conduct our own customer Net Promoter Score surveys designed to evaluate customer satisfaction from random customers who have placed an order within a 30 day time period. This surveys asks the customer if it's likely that he/she will recommend Sprayer Depot to others on a scale of 0—10 and also provides an opportunity for the customer to give us any additional comments or questions. We are happy to report that our NPS score is consistently well above the industry average with an overwhelming percentage of customers willing to recommend us! 

Besides the customer satisfaction surveys we also are happy to receive feedback from customers on our Facebook page which is visible to the public and provides an open and unfiltered forum for any comments or questions we may receive. 

Few companies can say that they take customer satisfaction as seriously as we do, and even fewer  combine this with an unparalleled dedication to customers and overall commitment to excellence.  Check out our extensive inventory of products online or visit our showroom in Orlando, FL and get to know some of our professional and helpful Customer Technicians—we look forward to continuing to  serve you and exceeding your expectations.

Spray Equipment Q & A:  Simple Answers to Your Questions

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Oct 13, 2017

We receive many questions on our blog from Sprayer-depot-QA.jpgpeople all around the world seeking answers to their spray equipment questions. Some are about specific product recommendations, yet many others are from people troubleshooting problems. Here, we’ll take a look at a few of the recent Q & As. 

Question submitted on our blog: Troubleshooting the SHURflo Pump 8000 Series:

Q: We have an 8000-643-236 pump that 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.

Question submitted on our Facebook page:

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:  http://www.sprayerdepot.com/Shop-by-Category/Solo-Handheld-Sprayers/405B.

Question submitted on blog post: Choose the Right Roller Pump

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 spay 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 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 D252GRGI or D30GRGI.  

Question submitted on blog post :  3 Reasons Why You Need an Economy Sprayer

Q: I’m using a SHURflo 60 psi 3gpm pump with a 250 foot hose. Can I hook up two pumps to get more psi at the end of he 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.
