Easily installed in an afternoon, the Spray Master System is a state-of-the-art hassle-free solution to control harmful flying and biting insects in and around horse barns. The Spray Master consists of a one-half horsepower electric motor driven pump controlled by a reliable state-of-the-art electronic timer. That timer is programmed to dispense insecticide in the form of a beautiful mist at specific intervals through special spray nozzles. Two different products are available for use with the Spray Master, including 110 HP concentrated formula and ODAway, the concentrated liquid odor absorber.
The 110 HP Concentrated Formula
The 110 HP concentrated formula is a premium formulation that has set the bar for effective automatic flying insect control in horse barns. It provides both quick knockdown and long-lasting protection against a broader range of harmful biting insects. These include horn flies, deer flies, stable flies, face flies, midges, mosquitoes, and more. For control of barn related odors, add Pyranha’s ODAway liquid odor absorber product to your Spray Master System.
Expandable Up To 50 Stalls
It encapsulates and neutralizes odors instead of just masking them, leaving the premises with a fresh, clean smell. While the Spray Master barn kit is designed for a four-stall barn, it is expandable up to 50 stalls. The kit includes everything you need to assemble the SprayMaster System, including your first supply of concentrated insecticide. Before beginning installation, determine where you would like to place the insecticide barrel and spray nozzles. Carefully plan out where you would like each nozzle, both inside the stalls and in the barn alley to ensure maximum insecticide distribution.
Begin Your Installation
Once you’ve decided where to place the barrel and nozzles, you’re ready to begin the installation of your Spray Master System. First, remove all items from the drum in a box and make sure you have all the pieces. Your kit should contain a PVC circle with a timer and motor assembly. Check valve assembly, intake filter, and tubing, pressure gauge, nylon one-quarter inch tubing. Please note that Pyranha high pressure tubing must be used or your Spray Master warranty will be void – Spray Master nozzle assemblies, Pyranha insecticide concentrate, and a few spare parts.
Using a sharp knife or jigsaw, carefully cut out the outline section of the drum lid. Run the end of the intake filter tube through the PVC circle and connect it to the pump suction inlet. Place the shorter check valve assembly through the PVC circle and connect it to the pressure regulating valve. Next, remove the pressure gauge from its package and screw it into the top of the brass cross assembly, making sure that the male elbow points away from the timer. After you have completed the assembly of the barrel, remove the spray nozzles from their package. Using your barn diagram as a guide, run the tubing on the ground around your predetermined nozzle sites starting your tubing path at the barrel. Using a sharp knife, cut the tubing squarely to ensure an airtight connection at each spray nozzle.
Do Not Install Them Any Higher Than 15 Feet From The Floor
After you’ve cut the tubing, push it firmly into the side of the spray nozzle-T and pull gently to confirm that you have secure connections. Using the plastic nailers or plastic zip ties install the tubing and spray nozzles above the center of each stall and six feet inside each exterior door. Make sure you do not install them any higher than 15 feet from the floor. You may use cable wire if necessary to ensure proper height from the ground. After all the spray nozzles have been installed, run one end of the tubing back into the drum and insert it into the male elbow of the brass cross assembly. Tighten the nut snub with a wrench.
Leave Slack In The Line
Make sure you leave slack in the line to allow a smooth shifting of the lid to add insecticide. At the end of the tubing line, pass the spray nozzles, attach the bleed valve to shut off the line, and hold pressure. It is preferable to end at the drum for convenience and bleeding both an insecticide and air from the line into the drum.
Testing The System
Next, remove the motor assembly from the top of the drum. Fill the drum half full of clean water. Do not put good insecticide in the drum until you have tested the system. Drop the bleed valve into the drum, then replace the top, being careful not to restrict the flow line and tubing. Next, connect the electrical cord to a 110-volt outlet and open the timing cover. To start the system, turn the run duration knob to on and allow the system to operate for several minutes. This is done to be certain that the pump is priming and that there aren’t any leaks. Some nozzles may be spraying at this time, but this is normal. After running for several minutes, pull the bleed valve out of the drum and make sure that it is pouring a steady stream of liquid. Then close the valve and remove the valve from the drum.
While the system is still running, turn the pressure regulating valve clockwise until the pressure gauge reads between 180 and 200 PSI and all nozzles are spraying a fine even mist. Then check again for any leaks at the tubing connections.
The System Works Best At 185 To 195 PSI
Please note that the system works best at 185 to 195 PSI and must not be set below 175 PSI or over 205 PSI. After confirming that the spray nozzles are operating smoothly and that there are no leaks at the tubing connections, turn the run duration knob to off and disconnect the electrical cord from the outlet. Then make sure you close the timer lid. Carefully lift the PVC circle and shift it to the side of the drum lid. Add the entire contents of the Pyranha insecticide concentrate to the drum and finish filling the drum with clean water until the water level reaches four inches from the top of the drum. Now reopen the timer cover and turn the duration knob to on. Fill the line with insecticide by opening the bleed valve and letting the system run. Close the bleed valve when the insecticide is released. If necessary, readjust the pressure to between 180 and 200 PSI. Now you may remove the plastic cover on the clock.
Setting Up The Device
Rotate the clear plastic lens on the clock dial clockwise to set the time of day. The arrow in the upper left corner will indicate the military time of day. For example, nine indicates 9 A.M. while 21 indicates it is 9 P.M. Next, select the tripper for the time of day you want the system to operate by using a ballpoint pen or your fingernail to move the switch out into the ON position. The color red will show when the switch is in the ON position. Repeat the above for each time you want the system to operate. Spray time should be set from early morning till dusk. Each unit is designed with a timer set for six firing times. Then set the run duration selector switch to the length of spray time desired.
When first starting your system, we recommend setting the timer to operate six times a day for 45 seconds. After about 10 to 14 days when the area is under adequate pest control, you may cut back on the number of spray cycles and the duration time of each cycle. This will help you maintain pest control. Please note that the system will run continuously when the run duration selector switch is in the ON position. The system will not operate when the switch is in the OFF position. The red extra run button can be used at any time to test the system or for additional spraying.
Close The Timer Lid When Finished
Please make sure always to close the timer lid when finished. You have now successfully installed your Pyranha Spray Master barn kit. You will soon be able to enjoy your barn and horses without the worry of bothersome flies and mosquitoes. While little maintenance is necessary for your Spray Master System, there are a few processes you will need to know, including refilling your drum, cleaning and replacing your nozzle tips, and winterizing your system.
