Permalink  
 


Ok so my uncle owns a lawncare company they put down fertilizer and weed control etc.... Spray trees and shurbs...He has 200 gallon tanks also has hoses and everything rigged up not sure on the pumps he uses to run the rigs but He is buying new equipment and was wondering would it be okay to use the older ones that he is not gonna use ?Or would that be bad

Don't do it Travis. It seems like very time someone uses a pest control tank it has a bad reaction and turns the tank brown. Also the pumps are not going to last long in a chlorine environment.

Yep always a horror story when people do that,esp. after they already sprayed the roof.

Travis,
Here is an article that is a good read, I am not sure of what the mixtures that were in the tanks, just be careful,

Bottom fed tanks?? I bet you it's all wrong. If you saved 5 grand you can get a new rig.
Do you have a truck already?

Yeah But If I don't have to go buy a rig and just use what I have I'll be able to put that money towards marketing and getting the knowledge to my customers.=]

This is what you need to search first. Concentrate on pumps for an entire night. Seals are important.

So this rig you were speaking of tonight, bottom fed tank with a dia. pump with rubber seals...it will work, but in my opinion only about1-2 months of good roof cleaning. This set up is totally wrong for you.

Not trying to be smart, but this is why I say read.

I understand And Thats Why I was asking the questions since you have the experience and you are the PRO I'm the Newbie.Yeah it has never leaked but again they did use it for Lawn Care Chemicals and the main active ingredient of Roundup is the isopropylamine salt
