i have seen a few people put psi guages on the units but I have never used them. The honest truth to it is that the best way is when you spray the gun it has a nice full fan with out too much kick up when you pull the trigger. For me when I set them up and test them and fix them its usually about feel.

Ya I know what you mean, but I was trying to be more specific, since I need to know the exact psi and liters/gallons per min I'm pumping for my other gauges to work.

Well I have seen pressure guages on a couple of customers units... I myself have never used one and I personally don't believe you need one. The best way to set a system up is to add pressure until you have an nice full fan and your wand does not kick up hard wehn you pull the trigger.

As for meters for the units i have seen one once on a unit from bellvile and they said it worked ok. Meters are a tough think because they are never exact and I don't have a source for them.

Yeah that is just a rumor... one that has been going on for at least 8-10 years. I can tell you I know I will be selling black mac for a long time to come and there has been absolutly no notification that there is any plans on banning it. Believe me I work very closley with a lot of people that are in the know and I understand where some of the rumors came from and I know that they are just rumors.

Blackmac will be around as long as it remains economically fesable for the manufacturer. also the numbers of sealers has been falling off in recent years due to the insane prices I know i have sold Blackmac for forty years.

Blackmac sealer reduced customer base

THE quantity of sealer i am selling is the same as usual. The number of sealers seems to be declining. this means that the guys that are left are able to get very good prices for the work they get. I here every day that it is getting harder to sell the jobs!!

Ontario Toxic Control Act

The rumours about the banning of Blackmac are not totally inacurate read the product list contained in the Ontario toxic control act. You will find naptha is listed as one of the substances we have to monitor and reduce the use of!!!
