Tools to help you winterize your sprayer
To make this job easier, we have provided a list of tools that you will need before you begin to winterize your sprayer. This will help you get the job done safe and efficient.
• 5 Gallons of RV Anti-freeze Liquid •1 Cup of Oil (Mineral or Vegetable) •Fuel Stabilizer
FLUSH TANK – Fill your tank with clean water, turn on your mist sprayer and flush out clean water through the volute. If you have a spray gun attached to your mist sprayer, make sure you spray until clean water comes through. We recommend doing this process outside in an area where the left-over chemical will not affect your surroundings.
ADD IN LIQUID(S) – Pour RV anti-freeze and oil into the tank. Run mist sprayer again until pink mist comes through volute. If you have a spray gun attached to your mist sprayer, make sure liquid mixture is flushed through until visible.
SHUT OFF– Turn off your mist sprayer. Do not drain tank.
CLOSE UP & DISCONNECT – Tightly screw lid back onto top of the tank and disconnect battery. Tilt volute upright.
ADD IN FUEL STABILIZER – If you have a gas engine driven mist sprayer, you will need to add fuel stabilizer into the gas engine.
STORING – Store sprayer inside or covered in a dry and clean place. This will help ensure your investment will be protected from frost damage during the freezing months ahead.
