Your Most Important Tool

If you’re going to do-it-yourself,  you’ve got to have the right tools. If you’re going to take care of your own bugs and weeds, the right tool to have is a tank sprayer.

Like any other mechanical tool, your pump-up sprayer needs basic care to keep it working.  Many of our customers find that the sprayer they bought from us years ago still works great (often over 20 years!). That is because (1) the sprayer was great quality, and (2) it was maintained by its owner.

To maintain your sprayer, you need not buy cleaning kits, brushes, detergents, etc.  Just follow these guidelines;

-When finished with any application, empty any remaining solution from the tank.

Remove/unscrew plunger tube, invert tank, & allow tank to drain completely.

-Then, pour 8-12oz of “rinse” water into the tank. 

Gently shake the tank a few times to evenly disperse/rinse.  After re-inserting the plunger tube, pump a few times, and spray out the “rinse” water completely.

-NEVER leave anything mixed in your sprayer (or ANY container) for storage. 

Tempting as it may be, this is a bad idea. Instead, mix only what you need for the application.  Excess/unused mix = lost $.

-Once every year, bring your empty, clean tank sprayer to us for a checkup. 

We will look it over and service it with a free lube. We’ll also check-up for leaky clamps, cracked hoses, clogged spray tips, etc. If your sprayer cannot be fixed, we have several great models to choose from.

Bug & Weed Mart has been helping others control their Pest & Weed problems for more than 35 years.  Stop into any of our 5 Valley-wide locations, open Monday-Saturday.
