    I sprayed atrazine last Thursday and left about 20 galls in the tank until today because I had to go out of town for a week. I rinsed the tank and noticed some white residue in the bottom. It came out pretty easy with the water hose. I flushed all the lines until the water appeared clear ( I had blue tracker in the mix ). I''m wondering though if I have the same residue inside the spray hose. I need to spray some 3-way this weekend for some bermuda and I'm a little worried about what's left in the spray line.
    Am I okay? If not, how do I make sure the line's clean?

    ossicate though out the hose by returning mixture into new mix. spray out into existing tank to remove residue in hose into tank until new mixture is going into tank!
