The best professional
airless paint sprayers, by
Titan Tool, make big painting jobs easier. Taking the time to properly clean your airless paint sprayer after every use will help keep it in good
working condition. Even the best airless paint sprayers will break down without proper care and cleaning.
If you find the
paint sprayer was put away before being properly cleaned, you will need to check it thoroughly. You will need to clean it and possibly make repairs. Before use, check the pump rod and
packings for any dried paint. Using an
airless paint sprayer with dried paint on the pump can cause serious and costly damage. Avoid this with regular cleaning and maintenance.
Inspect and clean your
paint sprayer equipment before and after every use. For best results, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for cleaning. Cleaning a
Graco airless paint sprayer may vary somewhat from a
Titan Tool brand sprayer, but generally speaking, you want to be sure to flush the system with water and/or mineral spirits, and clean the
tips, and valves. If you are worried about paint on the outside of your unit, cover the pump with a tarp while spraying to keep it clean.
Taking care of your
airless paint sprayer as a whole is important but maintaining the individual parts is necessary too. Here are some tips on maintaining these individual parts:
—Inspect gun and pump filter elements for clogs or debris. Clean or replace.
Spray Tip—Replace your tip often. Using a wornout tip causes you to spray more paint than needed and results in extra wear and tear on
your equipment. For latex paint, replace every 15-40 gallons. For oils and stains, replace every 35-60 gallons.
Packings—Inspect throat packing wet cup (area next to pump rod) for paint and/or fluid. Tighten if leaking. Always clean after each use.
