Maintaining and Servicing Your Roller Pump

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Nov 16, 2015

Your pump will last longer and perform at its best if you keep up with routine service. How often should you maintain your pump will depend on how often you use it and the type of liquid being pumped. However, there are general guidelines that the manufacturer recommends should be followed to properly maintain your pump.

Hypro Roller Pumps are some of our most popular pumps. They are used across different industries such as pest control, weed control, horticulture and other agricultural applications.


For those of you unfamiliar with this type of pump, Hypro Roller Pumps come in three different materials: Cast Iron, Ni-Resist, and Silver Series XL. They are compatible with a variety of liquids and chemicals, require no check valves and are budget friendly.

Before performing any type of maintenance make sure you follow these safety measures:

  • Pump should be disconnected from its electrical, hydraulic, shaft driven, or gas engine power source.
  • Do not perform service or maintenance to the pump, or attached components, until the pump unit is below 109°F (43°C). 
  • When handling Hypro pumps, wear steel-toed shoes and protective gloves in order to protect your feet and hands. Eye protection should also be worn.
  • Any hazardous liquids should be disposed of in a manner which complies with local and national regulations. Never dump fluids onto the ground.
Cleaning your roller pump after every use is easy and will prevent downtime. Flush the pump with a neutralizing solution depending on the liquid just pumped. Follow this with a clean rinse using fresh water. Don't forget to wipe down the pump after each use to prevent deposits from forming and damaging it.

When you are ready to store your pump for a long period of time, make sure to drain it thoroughly. Open any drain plugs, remove the suction hose and blow it dry with air. An antifreeze/rust inhibitor should be injected into the pump before both ports are plugged and the pump is stored. Plug all ports to keep out air until pump is used again.

Taking Care of Your Sprayer's Honda Engine

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Oct 19, 2015

On our last blog, we shared a comprehensive Sprayer Maintenance Seasonal Checklist to help you keep track of GX120-actualyour spray equipment's maintenance requirements. We often focus on the tank, strainer and pump more than anything else when it comes to maintenance, however, the engine also needs some TLC.

Here at Sprayer Depot we get plenty of questions regarding equipment care, and a common question is "How often should I change the engine oil?" As always, we recommend to follow manufacturer recommendations. To help you stay on top of your equipment's maintenance, we've written down a quick how-to on changing the oil on some of our most popular commercial engines, the Honda Engine Models GX120 and GX160.

Honda recommends changing the oil after 100 hours or every 6 months, whichever comes first. Honda also recommends 4-stroke oil or an equivalent high-detergent, premium quality motor oil certified to meet or exceed U.S. automobile manufacturer's requirements for Service Classification SG.SF/CC.CD. 

Before performing any type of maintenance make sure the engine has been shut off and drain the oil while the engine is still warm to assure rapid and complete draining. 

Now that we have that covered, let’s talk about the four steps to changing the oil in your Honda Engine GX120 - GX160

Step 1. Remove the oil filler cap and drain plug to drain the oil.

Step 2. Install the drain plug and tighten it securely.

Step 3. Refill with the recommended SAE 10W-30* and check oil level.

Step 4. Install the oil filler cap.

A few things to note:

  • Do not use non-detergent oils or vegetable oils as they are not recommended
  • Be sure to check the engine on a level surface with the engine off
  • Make sure to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water after handling motor oil

What other "How Tos" would you like to see featured on our blog? We appreciate your feedback so let us know in the comments box below!

*SAE 10W-30 is recommended for general, all-temperature use. Other viscosities may be used depending on outside temperature. Please consult manual

Spray Equipment Maintenance Tips to Implement This Fall

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Oct 14, 2015

maintenanceHow diligent are you when it comes to servicing your spray equipment? If you are guilty of waiting until your equipment fails in order to repair and replace parts and accessories, don’t worry, we have all been there once or twice. However, with fall season already started and winter just around the corner, we want to remind you of the importance of timely maintenance of your spray equipment. Low spraying season is the perfect time to perform preventive maintenance and establish a maintenance schedule for the rest of the year.

Waiting for problems to arise will not only cost you time but will also cost you a lot of money. It pays off to be proactive, so don’t delay... keep your sprayer in tip-top shape!

Here are a few things you should check off of your maintenance list this fall:

1) Change the oil in your pump, gearbox and engine. Consult your manufacturer’s recommendations on appropriate fluid changes.

2) Check spray tips for wear and replace as necessary.

3) Flush the pump and tank with clean water and make sure to dry them using a clean rag.

4) Clean the strainer by removing any debris and flushing it with water to avoid contamination and loss of pressure. If the filter in the strainer is beyond cleaning make sure to replace it.

5) Don't forget to calibrate your sprayer before storing it. Follow the steps outlined here for more information on how to perform a calibration.

You should also create a maintenance program you can use to keep track of each maintenance task. To help you get started, we have created a Sprayer Seasonal Maintenance Checklist that lists all components that need to be serviced daily, weekly, quarterly and semi-annually. It also includes a winterizing checklist! Get it now by clicking below:

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Sep 21, 2015

Once the busy season is over, it is not unusual to see a spike in issues with your spray parts. So if you suddenly notice a lack of pressure, your pump won't start, or any other change in your spray equipment then you know you need to get your sprayer serviced ASAP. 


Lucky for you, we are here to help! We've told you all about our recent Repair and Service Department expansion, and now we want to give you a look behind the scenes at this extended menu of convenient and affordable new services. 

During your initial call with one of our Customer Service Technicians, you will be set up with an appointment time, usually within the same day. Our initial diagnostic fee is only $75.00 for the first hour.  This means that if your repair only takes an hour then you don't pay anything over the initial fee (plus parts). Most repairs do not take longer than this time but this is not guaranteed as each customer's repair is different and times can vary.

Our Repair Technicians thoroughly inspect each part of your sprayer to get to the root of the problem. We will call 20150827_155235you to let you know their findings and the best course of action. We will also give you a price and estimated repair time (if it will take longer than an hour). We pride ourselves in providing quality work within a reasonable amount of time so that you can reduce your downtime and maximize productivity.

Let's face it, time is money and we want to make the equipment repair process seamless for you. With that in mind, the majority of our repairs are done the same day! If you happen to have a very complex repair then it might take us 24-48 hours but rest assured, that is not the norm. We also accept drop-offs without an appointment but keep in mind that we recommend setting up a time so you can get your repair done fast. Scheduling a repair is easy. Just call us at 800-228-0905 and we'll make sure you're taken care of as soon as possible.

Sprayer Depot Recognizes National Water Quality Month

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Aug 14, 2015

As one of the leaders in the spray equipment industry, we make an effort to inform customers of initiatives that are not only eco-friendly, but will also help your business save time and money. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated August as the National Water Quality Month and in an effort to create awareness on the importance of preserving water quality, we have 3 great tips you can implement as part of your spraying routine:

  • Wait for dry weather. It’s good business practice to check the forecast before you spray pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals. Spraying before a rainy or windy day will not only result in a less effective application but also in wasted chemicals and a higher chance of chemical run-off that affects the soil and bodies of water nearby.

  • Harvest rainwater. Using rainwater lowers your water consumption and helps recycle a free resource. Poly tanks make great containers to collect and store rainwater to be used for spraying. And we stock them in many shapes and sizes.

  • Check your sprayer. Perform routine maintenance on your sprayer and check for leaks or malfunctioning parts that may increase the potential for accidental spills.

Check out our past blog post 3 Tips to Eco-Friendly Spraying for more tips on spraying smarter. Do you have advice on conserving water and maintaining water quality? We would love to hear how your dedicated conservation efforts are paying off, so share your advice below.

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Aug 04, 2015

If time is not an issue you can drop by and we’ll get the repair done as soon as possible. Although time varies depending on the type of repair, drop offs are generally handled within 24-48 hours.

Some of the most common types of problems we see are pumps that won't start or shut-off, ruptured diaphragms, clogged strainers, leaks or no discharge.

You can trust us to use the best, high-quality parts and products for your repair.

July is Smart Irrigation Month

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Jul 24, 2015


Let’s be honest, how many of us really implement a water conservation strategy into our spraying program? Chances are, not that many. Fresh water is a precious commodity we are lucky to enjoy. Unfortunately, recent numbers show a severe increase in drought levels around the U.S.

Research from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) also shows that “45% of freshwater use is by industry, 42% by agriculture and 13% for domestic purposes.” Without getting too deep into the topic, we want to help spread the word that July is Smart Irrigation Month. This is an initiative launched in 2005 by the Irrigation Association (IA) to highlight the importance of water-use efficiency.

We think this is a great time to also remind you that small changes in your spraying habits can help conserve water and will help improve some of that bad reputation our industry sometimes gets. 

3 easy suggestions to help you reduce water consumption:

  • Make sure you are using the appropriate nozzle size for the type of application. This can decrease your water consumption by making sure that the drop size is appropriate and you are not overmisting, overspraying or overwetting. You also want to check that the nozzles are positioned correctly to ensure good coverage.
  • Check the hose, switch and tank of your sprayer for leaks. Believe or not, leaks are not always obvious and can go undetected for a while. Even if you haven’t noticed a performance change that would indicate a leak, it’s worth making sure that everything is working properly.
  • Establish a plan that helps you keep track of your spray equipment’s maintenance and remember to perform timely tune-ups to all sprayer parts. We recently featured a Sprayer Maintenance FAQs blog post that can help you get started with servicing your sprayer.

Head to the Irrigation Association's official website for the latest tools and resources to learn more about efficient water use. 

Join the initiative and tell us how you conserve water and reduce waste. If you have some helpful tips, share them in the comments below!

Sprayer Depot : Investing for Growth by Increasing Our Manufacturing Capacity

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, May 22, 2015

If you’ve visited our Orlando warehouse and showroom recently, it may come as no surprise that we’ve expanded our footprint. As one of the nation’s largest suppliers of professional spray equipment, we continue to invest for growth and this increase is just one example.

As we shared in this month’s Monthly Deal Finder e-newsletter, we’ve increased our manufacturing capacity and more than doubled our production and repair space. All to meet the growing needs of our customers.

Overall, the Institute of Supply Managers reported that economic activity in the manufacturing sector expanded in April and that the overall economy grew for the month. This increase is partly due to low energy costs, good business conditions, and strong production orders. 


 “It’s common for customers to drive from as far away as Miami or Jacksonville for our services,” said Sprayer Depot Sales Manager Brandon Grossman.  “This manufacturing investment is great for the Central Florida community as well as our growing customer base who we’ve served for more than 40 years.”

We’ve also expanded services with our dedicated 7,000-square-foot shop. This new space is designed and outfitted to enlarge and enhance sprayer production and repair while also allowing us to increase stock inventory.

And that’s just the start of it. We now maintain approximately 23,000-square-feet of warehouse space at our location - 7800 N Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando, FL. Soon you’ll see some changes to our showroom as well. There we have plans to increase not only the inventory we carry online, but to also provide our customers with complimentary products to meet the needs and desires of those traveling from afar.
