    Im melting my granular urea in the tank. Anyone ever had a problem adding aqua-cap after melting?
    Labe says add pendulum to a partially filled tank while agitating and then fill the remainder of the tank with water or liquid fert.
    Melted granular urea is liquid fert. isnt it?????
    So the way I read it I can add half my urea melted, then aquacap then start agitation and add the remainder of urea melting it.

    Could I just melt all my urea then add aquacap (agitating) last? Then finish filling the tank with water.

    I just dont want it to gel on me.

    I always add powders then liquids then fert unless label says otherwise. I don't think it really matters as far as Aquacap and Urea goes. I've never had a problem either way. I've used many chems over the years and the only reaction I've ever seen was between 2,4-D and MSMA... That is as far as Lawn chems go!;)

    I will be adding three-way later just not this time. I plan on melting then aqua-cap then three-way (24d).
