You can take the thing off and try to pube the spring with a waterproof lubricant and put back together that should help.

there are 8 screws, I think If I take them out, the cover and lever will lift off. I shot some W-D 40 in there and it helped. I would like to grease it. I am sure there is a spring in there.

there is you shoul dbe able to see also shot some wd-40 on the outside where the plastic handle levers when you press down on it, this will lubricate the handle and metal pin.

Do you turn off the pump when you change the dial position?
