    I generally use Prodiamine but I had a large job and bought the Pendulum liquid so I could spray at a low volume with my PG and not worry about clogging. It sprayed great and I have some left but I am afraid to use it on some of my residential with driveways, sidewalks, curbs, porch, ect.... because it looked like yellow spray paint coming out of the PG. How long will it take to bleach out if some gets on the hard surfaces?

    Not too long. Depends on rain and sun.

    What is this "rain" you speak of :laugh:

    We have been short on the rain so how long in the sunshine? Days or weeks

    Few days. I usually can't tell on sidewalks after about five days. White vinyl fences take a bit longer. If its bad, just a dab of brake cleaner. My customers know that the pre stains a little but fades. Nobody has a problem with it. Of course, decorative concrete like Granitite or something I'd stay away from. But I still wouldn't worry.
