This process brings your nozzles to optimum condition after a demanding spray season, and allows you to continue to achieve the best possible results from your nozzles.
Your nozzles are an investment for your business that should be treated with care. If properly stored and maintained, they can last 10 or more years. We have seen nozzles come back that are still fully functional after 14 years!
To get the most from your investment, it is highly recommended you do a reconditioning periodically throughout the life of the nozzles. Especially if you are hard on your nozzles, experience severe clogging from improperly strained liquids, or have accidents that damage your nozzles. The cost of reconditioning varies depending on the condition and the size of the needles, but average costs are around $9.00 per nozzle. If you send Check Valves and Adaptors back with your nozzles, we will disassemble them and put them through the cleaning process, as well as check all o-rings, springs and screens. The blue Teflon coated o-rings are always replaced.
We will advise you if we feel it is not cost effective to recondition a nozzle due to severe damage or if they have a broken or cracked lip around the seal of the bottom o-ring.
Reconditioning of a full set of nozzles can usually be turned around in 4 to 8 days but can be longer during busy times. Call ahead if you are in a jam and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
We offer a maintenance discount during the winter months to encourage reconditioning while both of us are not as busy, but it can be done any time of the year as needed.
