A great way to keep your Chapin sprayer working efficiently is to clean it regularly. A properly maintained sprayer will give you better performance and a longer life span. But what do you need to know before you start cleaning? This article will help you figure out the steps that need to be taken in order to keep your Chapin sprayer clean.
How do you clean Chapin sprayer quickly?
- Pour a gallon of white vinegar into the sprayer.
- Add 1 cup of baking soda to the vinegar.
- Turn on the sprayer and let it run until the mixture starts bubbling and becomes thickened.
- Pour the mixture through a strainer into a container.
- Rinse the sprayer with water and dry it off.
- Boil 1/4 cup of vinegar for one minute in a saucepan on the stove and pour it into the sprayer to finish cleaning. Not recommended unless you have very clean water. The expensive model says that they put lemon as well as apple cider peroxide, so they claim this will neutralize any tough stains or rust which is not really valid but I’m still gonna try!
- Before each use, add 10 drops of peppermint oil to the sprayer and fill it with water.
Note: the flavor of your spray dilutes once you put it in a bottle so rinse it out before filling it up again!
Disclaimer: I am not sure if this actually works for rust cleaning, but it’ll smell yummy!

How to Clean Your Hand Pump Sprayer?
- To clean your hand pump sprayer, first remove the plastic cap and fill the water tank with warm water. Swish the water around inside the tank to loosen any debris. Pour out the dirty water and replace the cap.
- Disconnect the hose from the pump and pour a pot of hot water into the sink. Connect the hose to the pump and turn it on to full pressure. Hold down the trigger until all of the water has been discharged from the hose.
- Dispose of any waste by pouring it into a trash can or using a plunger. Rinse off all of the parts of the sprayer with cool water and dry them off thoroughly before reassembling them.
How to release pressure in Chapin Sprayer?
With the tank upside down, hold one end of the wand firmly in your hand and unscrew the other end from the sprayer head.
Hold both ends of the wand together and twist them around to form a tight U-shape. Screw the U-shape back onto the head of the sprayer. You’re now ready to start spraying!
How to store and maintenance Chapin Sprayer?
Make sure your sprayers are always kept in a cool, dry place and not left outside in the sun or where they will freeze cold temperatures before freezing weather.
Disconnect the hoses from the sprayer. Store in a plastic bag. Do not store with gas, oil, or other flammable material.
NOTE: You should use this anti-liquid discharge device for preventing spills and leaks of a sprayer that has been opened up (unscrewed). The purpose is to prevent liquid from spilling when you unscrew it from its place because many components will be damaged if they are not kept completely dry.
Make sure you check the hose, wand, pump, and tank for wear and damage at least once a month or when it is used. If any defects are found they should be fixed immediately because your safety might depend on them working properly.
