Thread: Pinnacle black label paint sealant pump issues

    Pinnacle black label paint sealant pump issues

    Has anyone else ran into issues with the pump mechanism going down the drain after a couple uses. It just squirts the sealant out of the top of the rubber/plastic sleeve around the head of the pump nozzel. I love the sealant but the package/pump is total garbage if this is a normal occurrence imo. Any tips on a decent fix where I don't loose to mich product would be nice since it is rather pricey.

    I had had to use it by hand today and I noticed I used way more product than I would have with my da. But it came out great in the end so I can live with it for now.

    if others have this same pronlem it might be hard to buy again due to the waste of product due to the malfunctioning pumper mechanism.

    The pump is not the best,try replacing it with a top like on Menzerna or Rupes.

    I replaced mine with a flip top. The pump doesn't work well at all. The other issue is the product tends to separate and no matter how much you shake it up the pump is pulling product off of the bottom of the bottle. The pump needs to go for sure.

    A quick call to AG Customer Service should remedy that. My PBL BL Diamond Coating was locked up solid.
    The new design sprayers are much better. Give them a call, they'll help you out.

    I called them this afternoon before hearing anything back I got impatient. They offered to sell me a new pump for 2 bucks so I passed due to it being not up to snuff imo. I'll get a travel shampoo container from Wally world with a flip top for 50cents I guess.

    It's a bloody shame because the sealant itself seems to work very well. I have only used one other kind so im limited to things to put it against but I a, going to be trying some daddy o from shine supply I think next.

    Encountered the same issue as well. I like the product except for the issues mentioned, pump and separation. I found a similar issue with the McKee's paint sealant pump. The product was coming out around the base of the pump. This sucks as both of these products are too expensive to be wasting. New dispensers are needed for sure.

    Andre took care of me this afternoon and shipped out a new pump. Not sure if it will be much better but at least they stepped up and offered a solution to the problem. Side note the sealant is getting rave reviews from a customer who is a wax only guy, I think he might convert over which would make my life easy in the long run
