How to Stain a Fence with a FLEXiO Paint Sprayer
Learn how to easily stain an exterior fence using a FLEXiO 3000 paint sprayer to quickly receive a smooth finish on your wood fence surface.
PREPARE THE SURFACE
Repair any broken fence slats. Remove previous stain with a chemical stain remover. Rinse dirt and debris from the fence.
MASK THE AREA
Place drop cloths on the ground or to cover any vegetation near the fence. Tape and mask anything you don't want stained.
SET UP THE FLEXIO 3000 SPRAYER
Assemble according to manufacturer's instructions.
MIX STAIN WELL
Mix stain well to blend. If using more than one can of stain, mix all of the stain together to ensure uniform color.
FILL WITH STAIN
Fill container with stain. Then insert the intake tube into the container and tighten.
FINISH ASSEMBLING THE SPRAYER
Insert the x-Boost™ Turbine into the nozzle. Click together.
Adjust the sprayer settings for wood stain, according to the manufacturer's instructions. Adjust the Material Flow Control to 5 for stain. Adjust the X-Boost™ Power Dial to between 2 and 4 for wood stain. Adjust the Spray Width Lever. It was a breezy day so I set it to low to minimize overspray. Adjust the Air Cap ears to vertical for side to side spraying.
Hold the sprayer 6-8 inches from the fence. Pull the trigger and sweep the sprayer from left to right across the fence to apply the stain. Repeat to cover the entire fence.
Step back and check the spray coverage. Be sure to overlap each pass by about 30% as your spray to blend each pass.
YOUR FENCE LOOKS AMAZING!
Once the fence is stained, the wood will be well protected for years to come.
