Paint Sprayer Maintenance Tips for Winter

Keep your paint sprayer in peak condition during the cold winter months by following these simple maintenance steps.

Deep Cleaning

  • Release any built-up pressure
  • Flush the system using flushing fluid
    • Recommend flushing with water 2-3 times then flush a final time with mineral spirits or special pump flushing fluid
  • Remove filters from sprayer and gun to clean
  • Clean all tips and inside of gun
  • Clean the outside of all the equipment

Inspect Paint Hose

Visually inspect your hose to ensure there are no cracks, rips or tears that can lead to a blown hose while on the job.


Replace commonly worn items such as o-rings, seals, & balls to reduce the risk of breaking down on the job site.
