    Hi everyone,

    Starting to price out pumps for my 750 gal tank. I want to use electric, so can any of you give me some input as to which ones to use? I know pumptec is on here, how are they vs. any others out on the market?

    Thanks, hope everybody else's spring is happening faster than it is here!

    what are you trying to do with your 750 gallon tank? that is a lot of weight when full

    I am going to spray ICT products actually! I know that it will be heavy, it is trailer mounted, so a bit more manageable that way.

    Personally, I prefer gas motor & pump as it allows flexibility to treat trees & shrubs.
    Is your rig a single tank, or does it also have a smaller saddle tank?
    A 2nd tank will give you more treatment options.

    No, just one tank. I'm thinking this will be my "tea" sprayer considering how many gallons per thousand that need to go down.

    I strongly urge you to add a 25 gal tank and the plumbing to connect to the mother tank.

    Thanks Barry,

    Easy enough to do. I'll call you or pm you for more details on this.
