Can you change back an forth between oil base and latex paint with sprayer

Anonymous's Avatar (by Gravatar) by Anonymous in  Painting 

I have only used a paint sprayer off an air compressor years ago. The airless rigs I know about from industry and they only paint industrial paints. I want one for home projects but am not sure about changing over from oil base paints to latex. HELP PLEASE

Know the answer or have a comment? Post it here!

Follow the equipment manufacturer's instruction for cleaning and you'll have no problems. Just Mineral Spirits might be all that's needed to totally evacuate all traces of oil-based products. Test your cleaning and re-clean if needed. Other people use different or separate hoses, filters and nozzles for each type of product.
