    Default Damned Fimco Sprayer!

    Well, I think I've used my 25gal Fimco boomless sprayer about 5x.

    I was spraying yesterday, and it just quit. I mean, the pump runs, but it won't spray. I can leave it off, turn it on, and I get about 1.5 seconds of spraying and it loses all pressure.

    I contacted Gander Mountain. They said to send it back. I pay return shipping, and they'll ship me one for free. Needless to say, I don't have the box. Shipping that big-ass thing back will probably cost an arm 'n leg. Then there's the "custom" mounting I did along with the 20gal of solution I have inside...

    I replied to their message seeing about a pump replacement; if they wouldn't help directly, then I suggested contacting the pump manufacturer to see if they'd help.

    Last week some folks said they were junk and I disagreed. Well...maybe they are a POS after all.

    Midol aisle 3.

    Good god man, check for a leak on the suction side, take cover off impeller, look for trash. Blow out the lines with air, all of them. Does it have a pressure switch? And is it cutting off on it's own?

    I'm gonna try that route on Monday.

    Bownut - it's pretty unlikely that there'strash in there. I'm thinking an internal seal of some sort went bad.

    Could be as simple as a loose connection, probably vibrated loose and is sucking air and is losing prime.

    All hoses are strongly intact. I'm wondering if a bad ground would reduce pump power?

    The "strong at first" deal leads me to believe it to be a bad seal, though.

    Some of those models have strainers on the suction line, I have seen them clogged.

    Also, you can disconnect the suction line from the pump and make sure you have adequate supply from the tank.

    There is no strainer.

    I've put my hand in the tank, turned it on, and there's the brief suction for about a second and then that's about it.

    Mine did the same thing last summer and I was mad, too. Turned out to be my fault though. I didn't clean it out well enough after using round up and it clogged a stainer. Mine has them on the main lines where they leave the tank. I can't remember which one clogged. I see that you say you've already checked for a stainer so yours might be different. I had to run cleaner through the tank several times and now it works fine. I flush it out good now each time and haven't had any problems.

    I've had one that if it sat for a while, the seals that allow it pump become dry and it won't prime. I put a water hose down in the tank and forced water into the intake and that would normal work. Of course if you already have a tank full of chemical that not that easy to do.

    What cleaner did you use? I've run mine dry after use, but have not flushed.

    I still believe it is something more than a clog because I managed to spray 5 gallons worth before the problem surfaced.

    It has no strainers anywhere on it.

    Pics later after work.

    Remove outgoing tube, turn pulp on.
    Or kink outgoing tube and feel for pressure to build.

    If it doesn't work, go buy a High Flow gold series pump and the warranty at tractor supply.

    Send old pump back for new one and use as back up.

    fimco that comes with sprayers only lasted a month or 2. The high flow has been on my tanks for over a year.

    Looking @ the manual online. There seems to be a screen I missed.

    It seems pretty simple, really. Should knock it out this afternoon.

    There is an inline screen, similar to a kitchen faucet, on the supply line. Pull it out, throw it away, you don't need it if you are using potable water.

    What chemicals have you been spraying? Bleach?


    I have had the same sprayer for 12 years. I just put in a check valve kit. It solved the problem.


    Also check again for air leaks on the intake connections. Is your sprayer spitting any while working?

    Watch the video.

    1. I would check for air leaks
    2. Open up motor and flush out check valves with clean water.
    3. Install a new check valve, if 1 & 2 didn't work.
