The gun that will work with the Teejet nozzles will have a screw on cap with a 5/8 inch opening for the nozzle.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Yes, above are correct. Thanks Nate and Ric. But Shorty, your flow rates seem to high, I found 2.37 gallons per thousand sqft. Don't worry if the drying pattern is a bit uneven--that is normal.
And if you are only covering a thousand sqft in 2 minutes you must be the world's slowest walker. What is the swath width you are using?
If you are using a swath width of 6 feet and are walking 2 mph--would be covering 1056 sqft per minute.
At seven foot swath, you would cover 1232 sqft per min, at 2 mph. Even I can do that and I am old. No need to soak the grass with the solution--water and pressure don't kill weeds--the chemistry does the job. Pick up the pace get 'er done before sundown.

Yes I been thinking about this, And I still have some old true green methods installed in me still. ( soaking the grass) funny you mentioned slow walker In fact I am a very fast walker(happy feet) I would get reprimanded for finishing my route too soon, back in the day..lol
Having said that, I was using the lawn at first that I marked off, then I remember that the pavement/asphalt is better to see the coverage. Again I was using a spray wand with a adjustable cone nozzle. I was using the 340sqft method, 1/128 to get my results. making sure the pavement was evenly wet. I Really think I just need a better hand gun & Nozzle, pluss I THINK made a tightwad mistake in using 3/8 id hose.
why?
300ft reels on 1/2 hose are outrageous in price. I refuse to spend that much on a reel.. And I didn't think an electric pump would push 1/2id hose.
I am a solo and I have a set number of wonderful customers that are all referrals that I perform the total lawn care+ for my business. If I did just weed lawn it would be different. I would just get the money and buy a big boy skid sprayer. Nothing beat experience that's for sure..

Keep in mind that I haven't really used this tank setup for weed lawns, just spot spraying round up and shrubs. I have been using dry product weed control and fert. dry product has now become too pricy to continue. So I am evolving to use more spraying.
I don't want to be impulsive and jump out there and spend 2-3k on a skid sprayer. I do full lawn maintenance too, so I don't always want to lug around a tank. I am trying to figure out a way to left it in and out of the truck when I need it, so make a long story a bit longer, I'm in the process of putting together a 150 tank and learning how to construct one vs just paying for it put together.
So I am buying time with my methods.

Nate, after reading the web site:
http://www.paulbparts.com/search/con...ess%20steel%22
I think these are great for what I am looking for when it come to performance.

Help me thru the learning curve, if you will.

will updating to a shruflow pump make these tip less effective?
also will these Teejet AI Air Induction Flat Fan Tips just screw in?
Can I get away with using this kind of gun?

seen here at this link: http://www.dultmeier.com/catalog/0.48.906.2330
this gun is much less expensive

Can I screw in an adapter to fit the Air Induction Flat Fan Tips

thanks
