How to Use a Pump Weed Sprayer

Related Articles

If your lawn or garden is over-run with weeds, a weed sprayer may be the boost you need to help you win the battle. These sprayers allow you to treat large areas without getting a cramped trigger finger from using a spray bottle. Pump-style sprayers still require some manual arm action, but the vacuum created allows you to treat a fairly large area. The hardest part of using one of these nifty garden tools is mixing the chemicals to the proper proportions.

Put on long sleeves and pants along with work gloves, safety glasses and closed-toed shoes before starting. Wearing protective clothing prevents the chemicals from coming into contact with your skin.

Grasp the top of the garden sprayer and turn it counterclockwise to remove it from the tank. If you see a valve on the side of the tank, pull it out before removing the lid to remove excess air from the tank.

Fill the tank half full of water, or the amount specified on the herbicide bottle. Some herbicides require a greater dilution rate than others.

Measure the length and width of the area you are treating using a tape measure, and multiply them to arrive at the area. Refer to the herbicide label again and add the proper amount of herbicide for the size area you are treating.

Insert the lid back onto the sprayer and turn it clockwise until it is tight.

Grasp the handle on top of the lid and pull it up. Push it down and pull it up using a slow continuous motion until it becomes difficult to push it down. This means that the canister is properly pressurized.

Grasp the nozzle of the sprayer tip using your gloved hand, and twist it to either narrow the spray pattern or to widen the spray pattern. Use a narrow pattern to prevent over spray onto undesired plants, and use a wide pattern to treat large areas faster.

Position the sprayer nozzle 10 to 12 inches from the weeds and squeeze the trigger to dispense the herbicide. Spray the plant until it is saturated and the solution just begins to drip off. Spray all additional weeds in the same manner until all of the solution is gone. If needed, pump the handle five to six times to repressurize the tank during use.

Remove the lid from the sprayer and rinse it out thoroughly using a garden hose. Pour the water into a location where it won’t kill the plants, or dispose of it down a drain.

Store the sprayer in a covered location, out of the reach of children.
