Sprayer not working
I bought a one gallon handheld sprayer - the kind you fill with whatever (Roundup in my case), pump the handle to build pressure and use the wand/handle to dispense. It cost about ten buckns, new at the box store. The problem is, it stinks.
I adjusted the wand tip so that the liquid leaves as a spray or heavy mist. When I squeeze the trigger on the wand, it flows quite well for about 2-4 seconds. Then the mist/spray stops and I get a drip or two. If I release the handle and wait, I dunno, 5-10 seconds before pulling the trigger again, the mist/spray returns. It almost seems like the pressure needs to "re-build" in the tank. But that doesnt make any sense. Im a big guy and I pump the tank up tight. there is LOTS of pressure still in the tank when I do this. I know because the first time or two I unscrewed the tank lid (the contraption that contains the pump handle) and when I did there was a massive WHOOSH! and lots of ait and Roundup sprayed up at me from around the lid gasket. So, pressure in the tank is not my problem.
Like I said, if I wait a few seconds, then pull the trigger again, the mist pressure is back, but just for 2-4 seconds. What is wrong with this thing?
