First of all let me say Hello! I've just found this site and like reading everyones opinion, questions and answers. I have been doing sealing for about 12 years now. I did it in my uncle business growing up and then made my own gravity fed tank when after getting out of the Army. Started with a squegee, 250 gal tank and mostly small residential driveways. Out grew that and business was great so I ran across a stolen/wrecked/stripped/recovered Seal Master TR550 unit for a steal. Refurbed that with new everything and away I went. Which leads me to my question................
I usually try to squegee because I like the look of it better but I realize to be a competitive business I have to do bigger, better, faster work. So when I have to ( Large area) I will spray but it seems I have too much sealer going on and it will puddle and at times leave what looks like rain drop marks in it. I've tried spraying a little faster or slowing the flow of the sealer down and I dont get the coverage I feel that I should. Any suggestions?

Maybe try changing the tip in your wand? Or further distance from the ground when you spray. That might help.

What size tip would be "the Norm"? What would be an optimal pressure to spray with?

I use an 80/40 tip. It gives a nice pattern at 80psi.
