Bottom line: always respect one's property. By asking permission and explaining your situation, you may have gained her respect & empathized with you. But if she refused to let you borrow water, dump her like a hot potato.
I did ring the door bell and waited. Never came. As soon as I turned that faucet on she was there. Lol I've always dealt with her husband and he wouldn't care but that's what I get I guess. Anyway it's time for a transfer rig.

If you want to get water from a customer then why not ask for the herbicide from the customer also?

No difference if you ask me.

Idk if it helps but I use plastic 55 gallon drums with hand pumps made to fit in the bung ,to agitate put hose in top of other bung they usually have two. Fills 9 gallons pretty quick , no battery's to charge and keep up on . Used barrels are cheap like 30 bucks. The issue of using customer water is prob backflow concerns . around here u can't fill a pesticide tank with out out an anti back flow set up

I have a Snyder 330 gal tank & a sotera 445 pump with agitation ( a must). It pumps13 gal a minute. I can spray 20 acres a day with my ground logic. Pre-mixing the night before saves a ton of time

I use a 200 tank and a fatboy 2 pump fills fast enough for me. My T holds 16 gals and the pump is 7 gals a min. I just use fresh water and mix as needed.
