Spray Tips Special Edition: More to Clean Than Just the Tank

May 18, 2016

The tank’s clean so the whole sprayer is ready to go. Right?

Actually, that’s a myth.

Our dynamic duo of Sprayers101.com, Tom Wolf, of AgriMetrix, and Jason Deveau, of OMAFRA, are back to explode another spray myth. In this episode,@Nozzle_Guy and @Spray_Guy discover that there’s more to cleaning a sprayer than just making sure the tank is spic and span. Quite often it’s the rest of the sprayer that harbours residue and contamination problems.

Our spray sleuths learn the hard way that you can’t cut corners when cleaning. After some serious blowback that leaves the team feeling a little green, they agree to ditch the shortcuts and commit to triple rinsing, proper detergents and making sure all sprayer parts are clean.
