Cleaning out your sprayers

Post by milspec6 on Mon Jul 11, 2016 6:13 pm

I was doing some maint. today (cleaning jets, sprayers, etc.) and came across 2-7 qt. sprayer jugs in my garage that I left for dead last year. They were caked with left over prespray cement from that FireStorm crap powder. I tried to clean them out last year with spray jets, but the stuff just wouldn't rinse out.

Well, today, that has all changed. I told you about this product before (nutra-sol) but I never tried to tackle a mess this bad with it before. So, I thought I would give it a try.

All that I did was fill the jug half-way up with water and added a packet of nutr-sol. Shook it up real good for a minute and then let sit while I was replacing the jets on my wands.

About 5 minutes later, I was able to pour out the jug and the BAM the sludge was gone! Freaking incredible. I only wish I had taken pictures as you would not have believed it with your own eyes. Fantastic stuff.

So you think that stuff would be good to clean the multisprayer?

I am tempted to mix up a 5 gallon bucket and run it through the machine with the solution lines closed off to see if it would clean out the gunk there as well.

I don't see anything in the MSDS that would make me concerned at this point, but I will have to think about it a little first.

Seems we talked about this before?

Isn't this stuff citric acid?

Baking Soda, Salt, and some Proprietary compound are the largest percentages.  My guess would be an acid and softening agent are the others.
