I do not believe its rated as waterproof but all parts are equipped with o rings so I wash mine down and have not ever had a problem, having said that I will not use a power sprayer directly as you could introduce water thru electrical end.

This is a replacement pump and it does not come with corded switch control. You can buy the corded switch controller at parts stores that will pair up to the pump. I just buy the opposing plug mate then I just fuse my hot side and go through a toggle switch I mount on 4 wheeler dash to start/stop pump.

Pump comes with the internal npt threads on inlet and outlet and you convert to what you want from there.
The electrical is also a male/female plug setup and any parts store will have the opposing matching plug.

Question

how does flowrate vary with pressure?

The spec says 2.2 gpm at 70 psi. What is the flowrate at other pressures? For example, what is the flowrate with no head pressure? Also, how does the current vary with delivery pressure? Do you have performance curves for this pump that reveal this information?

Thanks

The pump is intended for use in spraying agricultural pesticides and other non-flammable liquids. The factory settings should not be adjusted. There is not a performance curve for this pump. Contact NorthStar Product Support at 1-800-270-0810 for any questions about the appropriate use of the pump and/or optional accessories.

I have found that if you keep the nozzles and pump paired that came on sprayer you will be just fine. I widened my 10 ft boom on one sprayer to 16 ft and I ordered four additional identical nozzles that Northstar origionally spec out and kicked up the pump to a Northstar 5.5 gpm and I held my 70 psi and flow rate. I measured the spray width to verify my 16 ft width I was after. You have to match gpm to nozzle uses and do math for flow rates and pattern then match this info to the right pump gpm and ground speed to hit rates on chemical being applied.

answer 2
No check valve but Northstar mounts pump on top of tank rather than the bottom like some manufacturers do so 99% of drip flow is cut off when you shut power off to pump.
