Why Fixing Small Problems with Spray Equipment Now Beats Tackling Big Problems Later On!

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Oct 06, 2017

Like all machinery and equipment, regular use of spray equipment over time results in normal wear and tear. However, it is also true that regular maintenance and simple repairs or adjustments that are done when needed, prolongs the life and the proper functioning of your machinery and spray equipment. Oftentimes, the minor issues that are left untended, and the lack of routine maintenance of your spray equipment result in major problems that are not only far more costly, but also can have a huge impact on the overall efficiency of your business. Without regular maintenance, minor problems can even develop into or cause additional issues that might require complete replacement of your equipment.

How to Avoid Being Lazy This Winter

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Jan 31, 2017

That chill that you’re feeling in the air means a number of different things: winter is in full force, it’s time to plan your Super Bowl party, and your business may be smack dab in the middle of its slow season (or at least shifting to another seasonal service). That likely means less use for your spray equipment. Yet before you go covering it with a tarp, ask yourself this question: Have I properly winterized the system to avoid unnecessary equipment repairs in the spring?

Why Winterize?

Why not just store your spray equipment away after your last application and forget about it until spring comes around again? Well, the longer your spray equipment is left inactive, the greater potential there is for it to fail. Any chemicals or residue left in the system can saturate into soft components such as hoses and valves, weakening them to the point of not functioning properly when you first start your sprayer back up again. Plus, having leftover residue in the system increases the chances of cross-contamination if you use your sprayer for multiple purposes.
