Back pack sprayer

How often do you wash out your sprayer? I use my sprayer about 2 days a week. Do you guy's wash it out after each app. or do you leave it with whatever you have left in it for next time. I use it for Round up pro only. If I do leave some in there week after week will it cause damage to the internal parts?
Yes, I'm sure you could find someone to do it cheaper but will you be happy after you do?

They recommend cleaning all equipment thoroughly immediately after use. Hopefully the link above will help otherwise go to Monsanto's site and look up the label if you misplaced yours.Page 3- section 6.0 MIXING
Check out the SPONSORS, they keep this site going!!!

The only type of sprayer that I know of that reacts with Round-Up is a galvanised metal spreayer. To answer your question ... No we don't wash our Round-Up dedicated sprayer out after each use. But, we have a 7.1 water pH here and yours may be completely different.
