Silvan Battery Backpack Sprayer

Hey there crew,

I'm guessing a few of you might have these...

 

My sprayer recently started constantly pumping ....  I mean when the hand piece is released the pump is supposed to stop ...my pump is on all the time now... 

 

Any ideas ?

 

Cheers

This might sound like a stupid question, but is this happening when there is plenty of liquid in the vessel? Because it will keep pumping when dry or airlock issue.

All questions are good ;)

or a sticky pressure valve

next time it's empty, triple rinse the tank and then pump clean rinse water through the hose/wand. If you have a suction pump, you could bother with it but usually a good flush of clean water fixes it (I try and remember to do it every few tankfuls) or at least every month or so.

I think the sprayer comes with a pump for these times?

i usually double rinse after every product...Triple after Glypho ...I generally run lots of water through it
