Vital Oxide sprayer instructions

Prepare sprayer solution

Dilute sprayer chemical as required, mixing enough solution for your application. Twist tank counter-clockwise 90to remove power head. Add liquid and replace power head, making sure tank gasket is in place.

Connect to electric source

To reduce the risk of electric shock this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.

If you need a longer power cord, we recommend a garden-type extension cord. Do not use one that is cut, frayed or otherwise damaged. To prevent accidental unplugging, knot the two cords, or use a cord retainer available at many hardware stores at modest cost.

Sprayer operation

Slide the power switch to the "on" position. A fine mist will form. Adjust the control knob for the droplet sizes ranging from coarse droplets which settle quickly to fine spray particles which can float a long distace.

The control knob also regulates the liquid flow rate. After setting the droplet size, you can calculate the liquid flow rate by timing how long it takes to dispense a measured amount of liquid.

If possible, apply your application in still air. Otherwise, your chemical may be blown off target. Use an even sweeping motion making certain to cover the entire target area. Do not over-apply. Since a fine mist is difficult to see it is usually better to calculate spraying time and volume from the liquid flow rate than to rely on visible indications.

When finished spraying, remove and empty tank. Open control knob and run unit a few seconds to discharge any liquid remaining in the internal lines. If you have been spraying liquids containing solids or polymers residue is likely to accumulate, flush residues from internal lines by running unit with clean water (or the appropriate solvent) briefly.
