    I've used up my celcius yearly rate and need to get out and spray again. I'm thinking of going with Q4 on bermuda and a Sethoxydim/metsulfuron mix on centipede. think if I close the tank off and continue to pump in order to clean the lines and then open the other side and spray the other solution though the lines good I will be safe? I may just have to do all my bermuda and then all my centipede. Just trying to be more efficient.

    Those who spray different mixes how do you transition from one lawn type to the next?

    you just have to spray out like you were thinking for like 2 sec. it does not take much at all. as to wear, cant help you on that, cuz i dont treat dif grasses, only have dif mixes for dif conditions of the lawns i treat.

    I have the same situation and equipment that you do and have considered what you are proposing. I finally came to the conclusion to not take the chance on applying the wrong product to any degree. I just do the centipede lawns on different days than the bermuda. Not as efficient I know but safer and less costly in the long run versus damaging a lawn.
