    I just got a new z in nov. and tried the pump out today and having trouble getting pressure and holding it. Any suggestions on what it could be. There is no way the pump should be burned up after 1 round of spraying end of the year. It was winterized. I have heard of pumps going out after 1 year.

    probably just air locked. I would fill the tank up with water and remove the filter jar. See if it will prime that way.

    Sounds like it could be a clogged filter or an air leak on the suction side.
