    It may need to be primed if it was dry when you got it. Put your liquid in, open the fill valve (by the gear shift lever) and rev the engine until you get a steady stream. Do this into a pail, of course. Then try spraying. When ours runs dry it's a p.i.a. to get re-primed and this is the best way we've found. Good luck.

    sometimes its hard to get them to prime. put water in it and open your drain or the spot where you fill the spray bottle. hit the throttle and the spray lever and it should prime the system in 15-30 seconds.

    You may need a full tank of water to get things going. Primeing after it runs dry is difficult--see above. I wish Permagreen would fix the primeing problem. I am very careful not to let mine run dry. Also very difficult to drain and then add antifreeze for winter. Tank needs a drain valve.

    Make sure the spray nozzles are opened.
