7 Must Haves For Your Sprayer Emergency Kit

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Nov 11, 2015

Many of our customers are getting ready to store their sprayer. To make this task as easy as possible, we've been Emergency_Repair_Kitsharing our end-of-season tips and tricks in our previous posts. Now is also the perfect time to put together a sprayer emergency kit if you haven't already.

An emergency kit will cut your downtime and save you time and money by keeping  a few essential parts on hand so you can quickly repair your spray equipment. When breakdowns happen no one is happy, so avoid downtime by stocking up on replacement parts.

The parts in your emergency kit will vary depending on the type of spray equipment you use, but we've compiled a list of the most commonly needed parts for repairing and maintaining some of our most popular Kings Sprayers.

Spray Tips and Nozzles: Replace spray tips and nozzles immediately if you notice a change in flow rate or a change in pattern distribution. Damaged spray tips and nozzles are sometimes overlooked but can cost you money and precious time if not replaced in a timely manner.

Strainers: A clogged strainer is one of the most common repairs our Service Repair Technicians see on a daily basis. You can prolong your strainer's life by cleaning it often, however, it's a good idea to keep a replacement strainer, gasket and seal. 

Spray Guns: We recommend not only keeping a spray gun repair kit but also a spare spray gun that you can use, just in case. One of the most common spray guns is the JD9-C pictured below, we sell a repair kit to replace the seals if the gun starts to leak and we have a short instructional video that will make the repair a breeze. 

Spray Hose: Although hoses are pretty tough they can bend and crack which affects the performance of your sprayer so we recommend having spare suction, bypass and discharge hoses on hand in case you need a quick replacement.

Hose Fittings: Besides storing replacement spare hoses, reusable hose fittings should also be on your list. Check out our video on this easy repair!

Diaphragm: Having a diaphragm repair kit in your emergency kit is definitely a must. These handy and inexpensive kits can make all the difference when it comes to staying up and running, or increasing your downtime. We have a couple of instructional videos that will guide you on the steps necessary to replace the diaphragm in your pump.

Pumps: Just like the diaphragm, many parts in your pump can be easily replaced, but some can't and sometimes the pump will fail and the only solution is a replacement. We recommend keeping a spare pump as part of your emergency kit.

A sprayer emergency kit will also help you save money by avoiding a trip to the service and repair shop, but in case you need it, you can count on us to offer you the best repair service. Don't hesitate to give us a call if you need help with a repair, or if you want to schedule a repair and service appointment at our Orlando, FL retail location. Just call 800-228-0905.

3 Things to Consider When Buying a Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Thu, Oct 01, 2015


Buying new equipment is always an important part of any business. However, making big purchases, like spray equipment, can also be stressful.  After all, you want to choose wisely where you'll spend your hard-earned money. You want to make sure that you are buying high quality and reliable spray equipment that will not only improve your application, but hold its value long-term.

To take some of the guesswork out of the puchasing process, we've listed the top 3 things to consider when buying a sprayer.

1.) Ask for Advice

Whether you are operating the sprayer yourself, or buying it for your technicians, always make sure to ask for advice. Make a list of things you absolutely need in your equipment. Ask other technicians also working with the equipment what they like (or don't) about the current sprayer and what they think could improve. Don't forget to always ask potential vendors what recommendations they have based on your type of application. Make sure to gather as much information as possible to identify your must-have requirements. 

2.) Look Beyond the Price Tag

Choosing quality over price should be a given, but we all love a good deal, so price is always a big consideration. Buyer beware, sometimes a seemingly great deal ends up not being a deal at all when the equipment quickly breaks down or doesn't perform as expected. It is important to keep in mind that purchasing a new sprayer is an investment, and you want to make sure your investment will increase your business value.

3.) Factor in Support

Consider if parts and accessories for your chosen sprayer are readily available in case it needs to be serviced or repaired. We have a huge inventory of sprayer parts and offer same-day shipping on many of our items because we understand how important it is to have the parts you need FAST, in order to minimize downtime. Don't forget to pay attention to the customer support you receive while inquiring about a product. Are they friendly and knowledgeable? Can you call back with questions after the purchase? We pride ourselves on having the best Customer Service Technicians in the industry, available by phone, email and even live chat. If you need assistance before, during or after your purchase, we're here to help.

Your due diligence will ensure that you choose the right sprayer for your needs!

Quick Guide To Spray Hoses In The Off-Season

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Mar 04, 2015

31038-revised-actual This winter has been no laughing matter. Snow has pounded the Northeast, the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter (to our dismay), and warrants have been issued for Elsa and Jack Frost. As daylight savings time approaches (March 8, 2015) we’re typically talking about how spray season is on its way. But it seems like there’s no end in sight for this snow

Realizing that each part of the country is impacted by the weather in a different way, we thought it would be fitting to review some off-season inspection tips for hoses. It’s a great idea to conduct an inspection on equipment that has been idle for a while, or stored for a long time. After all, if the spray pump is the heart of the sprayer, then the spray hose must be the arms of the machine.  

Let’s take a look.

It goes without saying that if you store your spray hose inside away from the elements it should last longer. That’s why some even go so far as to remove hoses from equipment that might otherwise be stored outdoors, and choose to store the hoses indoors. Keep in mind that hoses don’t have a set lifespan. The longevity of the product really boils down to how you use it, how it’s stored, etc.

Your spray hose might look good on the outside, but inside it could be disintegrating or deteriorating due to stress or incompatible attachments. Use a flashlight to look inside. Alternatively, your spray hose could look bad on the outside, but appear just fine on the inside. Hoses really should look like new to a certain extent.

  • If the inside of the hose is rough and/or partially collapsed, replace it.
  • If you have to ask yourself whether the hose should be replaced, replace it.
  • If you’re trying to convince yourself that you should keep the hose, replace it.

Now when you’re actually inspecting the spray hose, look for these signs that it’s in need of replacing:

  • Cuts or scrapes
  • Scuffs or rubbed areas
  • Burn marks
  • Kinks
  • Deformation
  • Bubbles
  • Soft spots (due to oil or grease)
  • Dry rot
  • Cracking
  • Bulges
  • Defects
  • Corrosion

To that end, if clamps affixed to the hose are collapsed, rusted, broken, have worn parts such as a screw or band, etc. it’s a good idea to replace these parts as well.

Learn more about why hoses fail in an effort to lengthen the lifespan of this important spray part with our quick guide.

Hypro’s Spray Nozzle Selection Simplified

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Oct 15, 2014

We’re always looking for ways to make spray nozzle selection easier and we’ve shared some tips of the trade in past posts right here on our blog. With new advances in technology and an ever-evolving line-up of options, we couldn’t resist sharing this Spray Nozzle Selection Guide and helpful information from our friends at Hypro.

Consider this. When selecting nozzles it’s easy to determine what droplet and flow rate you need, but what happens when the chemical you are spraying changes? Does that change the nozzle you should be using?

Hypro has developed a simple set of tools that will help steer you to the correct nozzle technology while considering multiple tank mix characteristics. The Spray Nozzle Selection Guide will walk you through a series of questions to identify the correct nozzle, including:

  • What and when are you spraying?
  • Are you using an adjuvant, and if so, what type?
  • In your chemical Contact or Systemic?
  • Is your primary concern drift or coverage?
Hypro's Spray Nozzle Guide

Nozzle Selection Guide

From there you’ll determine which of six nozzles are best for your application. Choices include Hi-Flow and ESI Six Stream, which are best for Fertilizer Plant Nutrients. Those spraying Herbicides and doing Weed Control would be served best with the Ultra Lo-Drift, Guardian or GuardianAir nozzle types, according to the guide. Rounding out the bunch are the Insecticide/Fungicide Plant Health needs that are best suited by using the Guardian, GuardianAir or GuardianAir Twin nozzles.

Interested in more? Hypro’s Spray Tip Guide digs further into the subject, providing technical details to support your selection. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Why different nozzles should be used when changing what you spray
  • How do adjuvants effect nozzle selection
  • When does using a Contact or Systemic chemical change your nozzle selection
If you still have questions regarding what spray nozzle you should use, contact one of Sprayer Depot's knowledgeable Customer Service Technicians.

How To Build the Perfect Custom Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Sep 05, 2014

Kings Sprayer 100/50 Dual Tank Skid Sprayer

When we say we know sprayers, it’s true. Our team builds more than 500 custom sprayers each year for customers looking to modify or completely reconfigure the makeup of this important tool. After all, you don’t have to settle for less than perfect in the sprayer world. Just turn to our Sprayer Depot knowledgeable customer service technicians with your ideas and < bam > the perfect custom sprayer is born. Here we’ll take a look at some of the common modifications to a few of our best selling sprayer models from Kings Sprayers.

You might be wondering if Sprayer Depot can modify one of the existing sprayers manufactured from Kings Sprayers. In a word, YES! Whether it’s adding more hose, swapping out the pump, or modifying the entire unit to your specific needs, Sprayer Depot can make it happen. We talked to operations manager David Herrera who mentioned “one of our biggest strengths is that we can get creative to solve space issues by creating custom frames and thinking outside the box.” Let’s take a closer look at a few scenarios as described by David:

One common customization is the dual tank setup (pictured above). Sometimes customers want two tanks so they can have chemicals in one tank and fresh water in the other, or another common scenario is having a need to spray two different chemicals while out on the job. We can make that happen within almost any parameter needed.

Another unique customization we created at the request of a customer is depicted in the same image above where you’ll notice that the hose reel is turned to the side. This is popular with the skid sprayer units in particular because the skid sprayer is usually in the bed of a pickup truck. It can be more convenient for the operator to have the hose dispatched from the passenger side when spraying lawns and shrubs. 

Gator Kings SprayersAnother example is  this custom Gator Kings Sprayers model. This skid sprayer unit fits into the back of a Gator utility vehicle. We had a customer request for a 100-gallon tank with a specific pump, engine, and hose reel. Given the standard way we build our skids, there was no way we could fit what the customer wanted in his Gator. So we got creative by using a low profile tank and designed a custom frame so that all of the components could be mounted above the tank. This is one of the most direct examples of how our team can creatively solve a problem a customer might have encountered with a standard off-the-shelf sprayer.

Below are a few of the most common modifications that can turn a stock sprayer into a custom model ideal for your needs:

  • Change the manual hose reel to an electric version
  • Add more hose to the hose reel
  • Change the standard spray gun to something else
  • Swap in a larger tank
  • Change the gas engine to electric start
  • Modify the orientation of the tank on the frame
  • Change the sprayer pump to a different manufacturer’s pump
  • Add another line on the suction side

So, what modifications would you love to improve your sprayer?

3 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Pump from Sprayer Depot

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Aug 20, 2014

You’re on the market for a new spray pump. You have a pretty clear idea of what you need. After all, nine times out of ten it’s a replacement pump that’s on its last leg and in need of replacing. Not an easy pill to swallow when you have to buy one of the most vital parts for your sprayer. But where do you start?

Does this scenario sound familiar? Since we're more focused on your needs than your wallet, here we’ll share three foolproof tips to get you the best product for your needs at the best price. 

Tip #1: Inventory
Whether you’re in the market for a diaphragm pump, roller pump, centrifugal pump, piston pump, transfer or plunger pump, find a retailer that covers the spectrum with a variety of brands on hand for sale. Look for a retailer that carries major sprayer pump brands like Hypro, Udor, Comet, Banjo, Myers and SHURflo, to name a few. Since not all brands manufacture all pump types, at Sprayer Depot you’ll find a better selection for your needs and a more knowledgeable team to answer any questions. Sprayer Depot carries all the major brands for practically every type of spray pump at the best price.


Tip #2: Price Matching
Speaking of price, don’t be afraid to shop around. You’ll find out more about the product you’re looking for from kicking the proverbial tires at a few shops before settling on one. That will also give you a chance to scope out who has the best pricing policy – for example Sprayer Depot will match any competitor’s price (must be an authorized dealer/distributor). We strive to offer the lowest price on all major spray pump brands, but if you happen to find a lower advertised price from an authorized distributor, Sprayer Depot will match or beat that price! When you’re shopping for a part like a pump you know your going to have to spend a pretty penny so why not get the best deal.

Tip #3: Customer Service
You’re a pro so the customer service team from any retailer won’t show you how to do your job, but they can offer some insight into the latest tricks of the trade. At Sprayer Depot, our knowledgeable customer service technicians have more than 55 years of combined experience in the industry. Many of them have worked their way into the role through production jobs building the very sprayer you use today. So they know their stuff and speak your language. Plus, they’re not sales guys aiming to make commission – they genuinely enjoy what they do and strive to assist folks in finding the product that’s best for their needs.

So the next time you’re in the market for a spray pump, or really anything for your sprayer equipment, remember to consider inventory, price match policies and customer service. Better yet, just give the guys at Sprayer Depot a call or visit the online store. You’ll be in good hands.
