What i'm gonna do is stick to my slow release granular.. i just like how they work better.. sure it won't green up overnight but i like how the green color lasts.

More concerned about the muriate of potash, i figure i'd mix it in a big bucket first, and dump it in slow while its agitating, with atleast a half full tank.. wondering if warm water will help? and i'd mix it up right before i go out to spray rather than the night before. it could work.. worst thing that happens is i blow a diaphragmn on a pump that is relatively cheap, and another lesson learned. sells a really good SCRN called Turf Flo. Will is a great guy to work with. I thought about spraying urea but I've heard too many horror stories.

I like the potash idea. Keep me posted on the results.
