I went out with a bugsprayer 2/3 full of paint latex-based. 1/3 of water I filled it up at home packed it in a trashbag where it proceeded to leak all over the effing place, and when I got to the spot all set up rety to do my thing, the peice of shit wouldnt hold pressure, it made this gurgling noice, it was very difficult to pump, and when I sprayed it, it shot out like 3 feet forlike 4 seconds? wtf? did I break it by overfilling or what? when I tested it full of water, it worked fine.. any suggestions on what failed?

Xena, sounds like improper mix... latex is trash for spraying through most anything. Had to take my sprayer apart and remove some of the internals in the tip and clean them to get it to flow correctly. Second try I added some "flow additive"(dish soap works too), mixed the paint to the consistency of milk (airbrush trick) and went for it. On a full pump sprayed 3 sides of a shipping container.

 

Gurgling noise generally means one of your seals is not seated, either on the tube coming out of the side or on the screw top..

Honest request! Any UK heads know what shops stock any American brand sprayers? We only have basic hardware stores with limited lines, I have used 2 full size fence sprayers (fashioned a ghost buster style rucksak with the nozzle up the sleave) but try as I might the rubber seals dont allow for a high enough pressure... I ONCE saw a link to an international distributor for the bug sprayer style ones.. not anymore.

 

My request: Some brand names that work (I saw Ortho, cant order to UK) and possibly any UK suppliers.

 

Nice 1
