When I started at TruGreen we used the big 1200 gallon tanker trucks. About 1978. One guy got an award for using up all 1200 gallons in one day, about 300,000 sqft. He joined the empty tank club. He was an amazing lawn tech. Tight route...big lawns. Not sure what he was smoking--or for that matter--if the tank was full when he started out. LOL!!

I think we were supposed to use about 120 pounds pressure and fill a bucket 4 gallons in one minute.
I think I used about 160 pounds pressure. Most of us walked fast so we covered more than 1000 sqft per minute.
If you were lucky and had a good pump and almost new hose--some guys used up to 200 pounds.
