Compost Tea Sprayer

We are just starting to spray compost tea and planned to use our 33gallon tank mounted on a Walker Mower. This tank was used this year for spraying weed-b-gon. Will I have to get a new tank?

So nobody knows if you can mix herbicide and tea?

Use Lesco Sol (do they still make it) or OxyClean and triple rinse the tank. You will be fine.

If its a 33 gallon tank....I would see how much a new one would cost.

I would keep one for weed killing and your new one for organic spraying.

Just a thought.
