    Replace them, I use several different types of nozzles and find that it is easier to replace them than fool with them. Sometimes the flap on the no drips get wrecked and they drip abit, replace them.

    It may be the housing nut that is leaking and not the actual spray tip. Does yours have the "o" ring?
