    Hard to say without knowing the type of hose end it is. Regardless of the type, you still would need to read the directions it came with as every model is different. For instance, the Ortho ones you dial in the amount of product you want to spray per 1000.

    Read the directions would be my suggestion.

    Don't read the directions. Unreliable. Test it yourself. Do a calibration test with colored water. Measure out exactly 1000 sq ft. Do it three times or until the results are consistent.

    better yet, throw it away so you don't use it.
