Can I leave paint in Graco sprayer overnight?
Never leave it pressurised. But you can leave it overnight leaving the gun and intake tube in a bucket of water. Moving the airless a 3/4 inch cap nut fits the end of the intake tube and find those roller wet bags from d.d convenient to put over it so paint doesn’t go everywhere as I usually clean it at home.
Can you run paint thinner through a paint sprayer?
Often one can run some lacquer thinner through the pump for awhile and get out most of the old dried debris if the sprayer does not have too much in it. If your sprayer has a flexible intake tube, flex it, move it around while running the thinner through it to try to dislodge the dried material inside it.
