Hi All,

Does anyone have any recommendation on what type of respirator mask I can use when dealing with fertilizer power/liquid? I just purchased a SP2 sprayer, and will be using products like 3way, round up etc.. on my home lawn.

Is it best to use disposable? Who makes good quality mask/filters?

Thanks.

Matt

Hi Matt,

It all depends on what you are spraying. This should be helpful.

Of course you could maintain your lawn organically and not need a respirator. Your kids, pets and family will probably appreciate it as well as the wildlife. :)
