Having the right equipment to get a job done is essential to making sure that projects get done efficiently. Choosing the right diaphragm pump is no exception. Costly equipment repairs and lengthy downtime can disrupt the day-to-day operation of your business so it’s important to evaluate product options thoroughly to make the best possible purchasing decision.
One of the best things about the Internet is that learning a new skill is just a few clicks away. You can find a variety of resources that can teach you everything from calibrating your sprayer to finding the best apps for your industry with a quick search.

Our videos are less than five minutes long, so you can easily get up to speed on a number of various topics. This comes in handy when a part breaks and you need to replace it quickly, whether you're at the office, home or out in the field.

Half inch socket
Diaphragm kit(2 diaphragms, 2 sets of O-rings and an air accumulator diaphragm)
Let's get started! Follow these steps:
Loosen the bolts in one of the two head assemblies to remove it
Remove the diaphragm nut and washer using the wrench
Remove the diaphragm
Remove the piston sleeve
Drain the internal oil
Loosen the bolts on the second head to remove it
Perform steps 2-5 for the second head
Clean both sides of the pump with break cleaner
Place the piston sleeve back in place in one of the two heads
Place the diaphragm inside. The diaphragm has a beveled side which needs to be facing up
Use the wrench to tighten the nut and washer back into place
On each of the two head assemblies remove the inside valve assemble
Replace the spring, valve seat (beveled side down), and large metal seat
Replace O-ring with a new one
The other valve assembly has the exact same parts but reversed (follow steps 13-14)
Switch to the other head and perform steps 13-15 for this side as well
Place the head assembly back in place on the side where you replaced the piston sleeve (step 9)
Tighten bolts in a clockwise pattern to tighten evenly
Switch to the other head and use non-detergent 40 weight pump oil to fill that open side
Place piston sleeve back in place
Clean up any excess oil
Replace diaphragm, making sure that beveled side is facing up just like in step 13
Use the wrench to tighten the nut and washer
Place the head assembly back in place and tighten screws in clockwise pattern to tighten evenly
There is a clear bolt on the side of the pump and the oil level should be visible right in the center
Remove the air accumulator head by loosening the bolts
Once opened, remove the air accumulator diaphragm and replace with new
Close everything back and tighten for a secure fitting

Sprayers with positive displacement pumps need some way to bypass the flow of liquid when the gun or boom is shut off. Let’s compare a typical relief valve, like a TeeJet S6815 series valve, to a commonly used control unit, like Hypro GS40GI, which includes a relief valve and much more.
In this week’s post we wanted to shed light on some great resources we have to offer on our YouTube channel in the form of instructional videos. If you’re like me, then you’ve found yourself in a situation where you took something apart, only to find you needed a little guidance to get it put back together. Well, the team at Sprayer Depot gets that. So we put together these videos just for you, in the off chance that you forget where that one remaining bolt is supposed to go.
