Deck sprayer Problems


Hi All,
I bought a pump deck sprayer yesterday to stain my deck and I'm having issues. It came with 3 nozzles fine medium and coarse I have tried all 3 and the semi transparent stain is coming out in foamy streams which I then have to brush?

What brand of stain? Did you thin it? If so, with what?

Deck sprayer Problems


Is it possible that you have a defective sprayer that is allowing (pulling-in) air during the spray process?

It also doesn't say anything about using a sprayer. Are there only certain types of stains that can be sprayed?

Deck sprayer Problems


In 33 years of painting, I have never had any luck using a pump sprayer to do a deck. I'm old fashioned and find that the brush and roller give the best results. They put just the right amount of stain on the deck and the push the stain onto and into the deck so it penetrates like it's supposed to. Doing it this way isn't any more work especially when you consider that all sorts of problems can happen with a pump sprayer.
