Building The Perfect Sealcoating Machine
Our goal was to build an affordable sprayer with reliability and performance that you can count on. We made it happen. It’s all because of valuable feedback and advice from our wonderful customers. We soaked in the advice, had an in house engineer spend over 22 months designing and developing it.

Questions & Answers
Priming the Pump
Pump priming is simple. As long as there is constant liquid reaching the pump, it will prime and pump. The less air in the suction hoses the better the pump will prime and work.
When transferring sealer from drums to the main spray system tank make sure the transfer kit hose is completely full of water. Connect the barrel pipe to the transfer kit and then the other end of the transfer kit to the suction port of the pump and make sure the transfer kit hose remains full of water. Put the barrel pipe into the sealer drum. Make sure the ball valve handles are in transfer mode. Start your motor and begin your transfer.
If air is hitting your pump at anytime it will lose prime and the chances of burning up your seals are high. Make sure water or sealer is always reaching your pump.
Type of Sealer to Use.
Our spray systems work only with Refined Coal Tar (Commercial Grade) Water-Based Sealer. We strongly recommend Gem Seal asphalt sealer and that can be purchased at the lowest possible rate right through our website here at AsphaltKingdom.com. If you use an "Asphalt Emulsion" sealer, a sealer with "sand", or an "oil" based sealer, the spray system will not work: the pump will need repair and you may even blow the engine. If you use the wrong sealer your warranty is voided in the same way as using diesel fuel in a gasoline engine for your truck. PLEASE CALL US IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT TYPE OF SEALER TO USE WITH THIS SYSTEM.
Tip is clogging up and/or just trickling out.
If a chunk of sealer, a stone, or a rock is blocking the output of the tip, it would create a blockage in the tip that would create a trickle or a pressurized multi-stream spray. Sealer sitting in the tank for a long period of the tank can dry on the side walls and form flakes. These flakes can fall into the rest of the sealer and get suctioned through to your spray tip, causing a blockage.
We heavily advise investing in a filter kit, as it filters out unwanted chunks. See more troubleshooting tips for if you lose pressure at the spray tip.
Pump is leaking between the engine and motor.
This usually happens when the pump overheats, due to running the pump dry. The main master seal heats up and shrivels up, creating small cracks. Always make sure you run some kind of liquid in your pump, whether it be sealer or water during priming.
What type of oil should be used?
Any standard 4-stroke motor oil (like 10W30) for lawn mowers, snow blowers, etc. can be used.
The pump only needs to be primed the first time you use it or if you haven't used your pump for longer than 24 hours. Use 1 gallon of water in the pump through the pump orifice allows the machine to immediately push that liquid through, creating enough force to start pulling sealer from the tank.
Uneven spray pattern
This usually happens due to the tip clogging or tip is worn out past a usable point. Buy new spray tips and invest in a filter kit to prevent clogged spray tips.
System not agitating
Sealer is too thick and the pump cannot create a prime to circulate the sealer. Dilute it properly to achieve 20 to 30% water dilution. Use a dipstick to check the level of your sealer at the end of the day and the next time you use your system, just in case of water evaporation (if the levels are different, add enough water to regain the previous sealer level).
Another possible reason could involve the system's ball valve. On the output part of the pump, there's a ball valve that allows you to redirect the sealer to the top of the tank or to the spray gun. If that ball valve is constantly or permanently broken to the spray gun, you wouldn't get recirculation.
Accumulation of foam on top of sealer
The cause of this is overagitating the sealer. Only recirculate your sealer for 2-3 minutes max at the beginning of the day and maybe for a minute at the beginning of each job.
