We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Check the connection and o-rings. Try tightening the connector to see if this stops the leaking. If it does not, with the pressure bled off, unscrew the connector and focus on the o-rings. If they are not intact or appear to be damaged, replace the o-rings.
If no pressure is felt then the sprayer isn`t getting pressure in the first place, so the most probable cause is a faulty, missing or dry plunger O-ring or leaking non return valve. Replace or lubricate as necessary.

Depending on wether or not you have a Sand filter or an Earth Filter, you should periodically backwash(for sand) and “bump” for the earth filters. You will notice that the psi will lower back down to the lower psi range. This indicates that your water is flowing freely with little resistance.
