Shindaiwa backpack sprayer problem

My model 415 won't hold pressure. I can only pump the handle one time , then it's too hard to pump. I can spray, but only for a few seconds between my one pump.

If you choked a Smurf, what color would it turn?

I'd give my right hand , if I could be ambidextrous!

A teardown may be in order to determine the problem. Sounds like it may be a check valve problem.

Shindiawa has a parts breakdown available at their website.
