Sprayer pump question

My old sprayer has a Ace centrifical pump that is about wore out. When I sprayed corn, I had the by-pass closed and the line to the sparger nearly closed off, and could barely get 40# pressure. New ones are 2 time as much as I paid for sprayer. I am wondering if I could use a roller pump and get by? I don't use wetteble powders, mostly Roundup and Liberty, this spring I used a Lasso-atrazine mix on corn. I used to see Ace pumps on farm sales that sold cheap, but never saw a single one last winter. Just wondering, Chris

remove the pump when your through with it and flush it with clean water. then fill it with pure antifreeze and turn the pump by hand until it starts to run out. store it in a place where you can see it and remember to turn it a little each way every few months. next spring it will be good to go.

It doesn't appear to be abrasive, but some roller pumps really don't like Roundup. I never had good luck with them and went to all centrifical.

Those ace pumps are rebuildable.

Buy a seal kit and a new impeller and your like new again.

Also make sure you are not starving it for liquid. Like maybe a plugged filter ahead of the pump.
