I just purchased this sprayer on Friday and it should be arriving to my home today. Can i use this model sprayer with powders such as Celcius? The QandA on the Home Depot page said they dont reccomend it, But when I went to Echos website and read the owners manual it didn't say I couldnt use it it left this comment...
POWDER-BASED CHEMICALS
Powder-based chemicals (powder mixed with liquids to make the spraying agent) are usually abrasive
and can cause wear. When you use a powder-based chemical in your sprayer, make sure it is thoroughly
dissolved in the liquid solution. Thoroughly clean and flush the sprayer with water to extend the life of
the sprayers parts.

I am just a home owner and I am not spraying everyday like most of you guys. I just wanted a quality product for myself without spending a fortune. So my question is Will this thing hold up to a home owners use with wettable powders?

Dissolve the powder separate before adding to your tank. Celsius dissolves fast. I have to do this a lot with other slower dissolving Chems like blindside.

You could mix the solution in the sprayer. Then mix it with a paint stirring propeller in an electric drill. Dissolve it fully before starting.
