STORAGE
RECOMMENDATIONS
Drain all water out of the sprayer, paying special
attention to the pump and handgun. These items are
especially prone to damage from chemicals and
freezing weather.
The sprayer should be winterized before storage by
pumping a 50-50 solution of water and R. V. anti-
freeze through the entire plumbing. Proper care and
maintenance will prolong the life of the sprayer.
IMPORTANT:
Do not allow chemicals to sit in pump
for extended times of idleness. Some chemicals will
damage the pump valve if allowed to soak untreated for a
length of time. Always flush the pump with water after
each use. Follow the procedures in the Maintenance
section for flushing and disposal.
