    I am small time on the chemical applications and interested in how to transfer the product to a measurement container from a 2.5 gallon container. Attempting to hold the funnel over the measurement cylinder and then poring the product into the funnel is a pain in the *****. Looking for how everybody else gets the product into the backpack sprayer without wasting it on the ground?

    turkey baster - good idea

    tip and pour - not working without waste

    4 oz syringe - will not fit in opening of 2.5 container...


    Turkey Baster it is... but can I measure 1.5 oz accurately?

    I cannot understand how a tip & pour container causes waste. I have all basic chems in tip & pours. They come in pint, quart, ½ gallon and gallon. Using syringes, basters or funnels is archaic - how will you seal them and keep them clean? I'm assuming you have a syringe for each chem being used?
