Typo TSC

I do not think so, this is the second time I sandblasted them and then sprayed them with bed liner.

My question is does a Zspray have only 2 hose to the tank a suction and a return

Do you have the disk in stalled in your agitator

On the return line have you ever tried a educator a small amount of water going threw it will move a good amount of water around in the tank keeping thing mixed up

I think the jet agitator would make a big difference.

I run a z- max and always get the 5 gpm pump on it.
If the pump keeps turning on and off you need to add a agitation line on the pressure side that is metered .To let off a enough pressure to keep the pump from turning off. and adjust the the pressure up a little if need.

We scrape, sand, sandblast and paint tire rims and casters each year. There is a local company that builds race cars( GRT) and they also offer powder coating to the public. I'm not sure whether it would last much longer and be worth the added expense but I thought I would get a price sometime.

I've found that rust just bubbles under bedliner coating too. Bedliner coating is what I apply to the hopper motor, but I have to do it 2-3 times per season to keep it protected.

It did have a by-pass but still kept doing the same thing. It would eventually get hot and blow the fuse.
If I just ran it with no restrictions at all it would pump like crazy, that is kinda why I think it was just to big....unless the pump had something wrong with it? Maybe? Who knows.

.

I'm by no means an expert on pumps but it sounds like you may have needed a larger return line and maybe a larger intake as well to accommodate the larger volume of liquid.

I think the intake was fine because it was 1" but the by-pass could've been to small. That makes sense because it would pump fine until the return side of pump was hooked up. Not sure of the size of bypass.
