FLUSH THE TANK
Remove any solution left in tank. Fill the sprayer part
way with water, start the sprayer and allow clear water
to be pumped through the plumbing system and out
through the boom assembly and the handgun. Use
the hand gun to thoroughly wash all internal parts of
the tank, the outside of the tank and the boom.
Refi ll the tank about half full with plain water and

STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
Drain all water out of the sprayer, paying special
at ten tion to the pump and handgun. These items
are es pe cial ly prone to damage from chemicals and
freez ing weather.
The sprayer should be winterized before storage by
pump ing a 50-50 solution of water and R. V. an ti freeze
through the entire plumbing. Proper care and
main te nance will prolong the life of the sprayer.
