    i picked up a lesco 300 gallon spray unit ,($1000) hehe , 1 year old. my question is it was used to spray round up /// and pre em what is the best way to clean it //neurtilize it ect....
    i want to do deep root fertilization with it

    i bought the lesco cleaner

    years ago we used bleach then 3 tanks straight water???:::dizzy: :dizzy:
  2. Read the directons on the cantainer, I don't think just one will do 300 gal though.

    I would do what it says 2 times to be safe.

    However you will never get rid of 100% of it forever. The poly, and rubber both have absorbed some of it perminatly.

    It will be safe for deep root and other if you take the right steps to clean it, but will never be drinking water safe again.

    Round Up and pre-M should not be a problem to clean out. 2-4-D is the one chemical that will never totally clean out of a tank. Good Luck.
  5. You should be safe, but they also recommend to do a few sample things just to be sure.
