Spray gun maintenance is just as important as everything else in the world of sprayfoam. From time to time we are forced to rebuild our spray gun(s) and it is important to always test them after a rebuild. For starters, testing can save us time on the job site, provide better quality spraying and it can offer peace of mind knowing that we have a good working gun for our next job. For me, it also offers a great sense of satisfaction knowing that I did something great to keep my equipment in the best shape possible
