Omg, how many gallons are you applying per 1000 sq ft.

Come on man, did you get licensed or pay attention to your studying and testing for the license. This is covered thoroughly.

All I can say is READ THE LABEL. I hope you didn't use 1 gallon for the whole tank.

If he was calibrated for 2 gallons per k he would be fine...I doubt this is the case for a 200 gallon space saver...more like 4-5 gallons per k.

JDL should stick to just selling chems.

I use just under a gallon of 3 way per 200 gallons of water and I add 28 oz surfactant as well. I can spray 100,000 sq feet with that 200 gallons. Works wonderfully, in Minnesota.

What rate does the label tell you to mix at for your type of spraying ?

It does not matter what anyone tells is the rate to use, you need to read and understand the proper spray rate from the label, its all there in black and white.

My machine is calibrated right and I know how much product to use, I was just asking how much everyone else did to see if the guys at jdl were yanking my chain. I'm not an idiot and I'm licensed!
