    WORX sprayer mods

    We use an inline sprayer only. When we do commercial accounts ( restaurants,hotels mostly) we use a splitter in solution line with 50' coming off each side so we can spray and clean at same time. Also IMHO i believe the hot water prespay 200f plus helps break down grease and soils

    I use non-ethanol in all my small engines and tractor for years. My mother had a mower that was less than year old and had to have carb replaced due to E-10. and warranty wouldn't cover it and it hadn't sat it was still in first summer of use

    My little giant was on fire today

    When your leak checking remember the the union nut wont have gas to flow to it except when the main burner is lit. So you can only check it while it is operating

    My little giant was on fire today

    Truly i'd say the valve didn't get alot of heat. The knobs are thin plastic and melt easy. If it had got very hot they would have been gone completely. . . Ive had that same union leak one time years ago luckily caught it as soon as it started. I use a 24" pair channel lock to make sure its...

    Best way to fill up hydro force sprayer

    You get used to it you'll wonder how you ever did without it. It's great for spraying inline filter out and cooling heater down too. And if you use powders they disolve much better with the hot water but my helper complains that sprayer is to hot lol.
