Spotlight: The Story of Sprayer Depot

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Nov 08, 2017

”To WOW people by exceeding expectations.”

In a nutshell, that is our aim here at Sprayer Depot and with every customer and every transaction, we strive to uphold this mission as the leading supplier of OutdoorSignMainEntrance.jpg
professional spray equipment in the United States.  In this post we'll offer a little background information on our business, our crew, and our mission to show where we've come from and how we got to be the #1 choice for spray equipment.

Sprayer Depot started out more than 45 years ago as a small business that specialized in lawn care and landscaping services. In 2009, the company opened the doors to our retail showroom. By the time we launched our online retail store we had expanded from a small lawn and landscaping business to the premium supplier of professional sprayers, parts and accessories for the pest control, lawn and landscape, golf and recreation, horticultural and agricultural industries.  Sprayer Depot currently occupies a 23,000 square feet location at 7800 N. Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando, Florida, and even added a 7,000-square-foot shop that is dedicated to sprayer production and repair.  

Today our company includes a staff of 23 dedicated and hard-working individuals who make up our Management, the Operations Department, Sales and Marketing Department, our Support Specialists and our knowledgeable Customer Service and Repair Technicians. We take pride in training all of our team members to pursue our mission everyday and provide exceptional service through each phase of our proven sales process. That process begins and ends with our customers and our mission statement clearly defines our aim: 

“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.”

Our inventory is extensive and includes high quality and industry recognized brands such as Hypro, John Bean FMC, SHURflo and Kings Sprayers. We also offer same day shipping on orders placed by 5:00 p.m. (ET) and take special interest in the feedback and satisfaction of every customer. We   maintain a consistently high BizRate customer satisfaction rating and a Net Promoter Score (NPS) that exceeds the industry average.

We welcome all questions and comments and invite you to contact us with any product inquiries or technical questions. Thank you to all who have brought us to where we are today and to all our new customers, we welcome you to the Sprayer Depot family!

Here’s What People Are Really Saying About Sprayer Depot

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Oct 24, 2017

As the leading supplier of sprayers, spray equipment and accessories in North America, our reputation means a lot to us. 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:

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.

3 Sprayer Upgrades That Can Make Your Life Easier

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Sep 01, 2017

It's no mystery that the more efficient you can run your business, the more successful it will be. Right? That means not only fine-tuning administrative systems, but keeping equipment up-to-date and in good working condition can prevent downtime and increase productivity.

Upgrading a few key components of your sprayer can improve its performance and efficiency. Here's a look at some recommendations to save you time AND money!

  • Hannay-Hose-Reel.jpgElectric Rewind Hose Reel & Hose Guide - Save your biceps and your time by upgrading to the electric rewind reel and hose guide.  Simply push the button on the reel and the hose will automatically return to you!  Use the guide to help the hose back onto the spool uniformly and with ease.
  • Boomless Nozzle or Spray Boom - If spraying large areas where spot spraying with a gun may not be the best option, consider a boom or boomless nozzle.  Turn the valve on to supply liquid to the attachment and drive your vehicle - it’s as easy as that!
  • Electric Start Engine - If space is too tight to pull the cord oHonda-Electric-Start-Engine.jpgr you want the simplicity of key start, upgrade to an electric start engine.

5 Ways To Use Social Media to Maintain Excellent Customer Service

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Jun 23, 2017

Customers look for product solutions wherever they can find them.  These days, many customers are online, and focusing on that fact has helped Sprayer Depot Customer_Feedback_SD-2.jpgbecome a social media leader in the spray equipment industry.

  3. Having how-to's and advice online is vital for customer communication.  Our YouTube instructional video library contains useful topics like Repairing a Kappa-40 Diaphragm Pump and Repairing a JD9 Spray Gun O-Ring. Available 24/7 these videos are quick and easy-to-understand, no matter the day or time. Of course, we're always happy to help and are available by phone and Live Chat in addition to our social channels.
  4. With Google+ integrating into Youtube, it's easier than ever to quickly type #sprayequipment, #sprayers or similar hashtags to quickly find a topic thread. 
  5. Using Facebook means more than simply having followers or answering private messages. Customers can now write a review and let others know about their experience with Sprayer Depot.

    Still, it's not about having these platforms. It's about our customers, it's about answering the email, the phones and the chats with the best possible answers we can provide.  The better we can communicate, the better we are doing our jobs.  And the better we do our jobs, the more people we have to help.

How Planning For Parts Can Save You Time & Money

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Jun 21, 2017

It's officially summer, and that means it's the time of year many of us are working at full capacity to maximize the business opportunities of the season.  Jd9C-Repair-Kit.jpgA little planning can go a long way, though. Making sure that equipment is running properly means making sure your equipment is in full operational condition and having spare parts on hand, just in case of a break-down and things don't go according to plan. 

Top 4 Sprayer Parts To Keep In Stock

Keep spare parts on hand for items that commonly wear out. Consider this part of your spray equipment maintenance plan. You will be glad when all it takes is a simple repair to keep your spray equipment up and running. Here are some popular items that top our list of of recommended parts to keep on hand:

  1. Sprayer tips and nozzles
  2. Strainers
  3. Hypro D30 Diaphragm pump repair kit
  4. Spray guns

Since damaged spray tips are often overlooked, and can cost both time and money if not replaced in a time, it's a no-brainer to keep somne extra tips on hand. The same goes for strainers; they are inexpensive and easy to replace.  While it's always a good idea to keep a spray gun repair kit on hand such as the this one for the JD9®-C spray gun which includes a Teflon valve seat, having an extra spray gun at-the-ready ensures you've got a back-up plan. This short instructional video is a great refresher.

Not sure which part or repair kit to use? Ask one of our knowledgeable Customer Service Technicians. Call 800-228 0905 or use the Live Chat feature on our website.

Hypro manufacturers its own line of small commercial gas engines called PowerPro™. These Hypro_PowerproEngine.jpggasoline engines are suitable for a variety of agricultural, industrial, and lawn & garden applications. Like all of the top quality spray equipment brands we sell, these engines are factory-tested to ensure quality and performance ratings.

PowerPro™ engines come in different models. Hypro’s wide selection of engines ensures you will be able to find the ideal one for your spray equipment. Available in 2.5, 5.5, 6.5, and 13 horsepower models, they can handle a wide range of applications.

This added benefit makes it easy for you to configure your current equipment or custom-build a sprayer to include a pump/engine assembly for even more power!

2. Choose unleaded gasoline to operate the engine.
3. For a new engine, replace engine oil every first month or after 20 hours of operation. After the first oil change, replace it every 6 months or after 100 hours of operation.
4. Clean valve, combustion chamber, fuel tank, fuel filter and fuel supply line each year or after 300 hours of operation.
5. Clean the deposit cup every season or after 50 hours of operation.
