No New Posts what's in the tank?
 
(Preview)
Hello Pros, I've read and seen rigs set up with 2 to 3 tanks.  My question is what is in each one?  Do you keep the mix in the 300 and then water in the 55's?  Or is the 300 filled with water and the 55's have the mix?  Can I use just any old water tank?  What should it be made out of? I appreciate your valuable insi...

Hey guys, I had a job last week and wound up with about 5-6 gallons of leftover Apple Cider Sauce.  It has been 3 days since that job and I still have the leftover love sitting in my tank.  Will I be able to reuse this love for the next job 4 days from now or will it be too weak??  Also, is there any danger leaving...

I've been having fun with my X-jet the past few months, and I've been using a bleach solution for everything so far. I'm happy with the results, but the environmental impact and the potential damage to plantlife if I don't rinse enough are issues that I would like to do without if possible. I was talking...

I am starting to keep track of what my mix is before I use it, but am looking for a bench mark to go by.  And what test would be the most important for how strong the mix is.  I'm not sure if testing for diss...

In colder climates where it gets down below freezing at night, it is good to have more than one type of surfactant. If the temperature outside is below 40 degrees, I reschedule another time. The chemicals do not work well enough for it to be worth it. You end up reapplying so many times and wasting a lot...

After having a little experience in the equipment rental business, I've learned a few things about air compressors. In my opinion Speedaire and Ingersoll Rand are top chioces. A brand you may have never heard of is likely even better. That is a Mi-T-M. The small two tank model of Speedaire (8 or so cfm)...
