Default Happy camper

My Graco 695 started spraying paint out the side of the pick up tube, so after talking to the shop I decided to buy the rebuild kit and just do it. Well let me tell you that baby rocks now, no leaks and it primes super fast and builds up to 3,200 psi in a heart beat, not that I use that much, but that's way more than it ever would pump and hold before.I'm one happy guy.

If you turn the pump off first and then release the fluid pressure in the hose with the gun trigger, then release the rest of the pressure via the prime valve; the prime valves will last longer. This is especially important on the Titan pumps.

I agree.
But I rarely open the prime valve anyway.

But I do have to say that it took me like two hours to do it.The rebuild kit has about 25 parts in it and I wanted to make sure they were all in right, with checking and double checking, it takes a while.

Yup! And those vaulves are not cheap, way over priced if you ask me. When we blow through them weekly i would buy the chepos at Depot

That's why it costs around $200 to repack at the local pump shop.
