    Hi,

    I am fairly new to the business and I am trying to figure out how to spray properly.

    I know that when you spray there are 2 lines that show when spraying. I am worried that those lines may stay after the product (BlackMac) dries.

    If anybody can provide some tips on how to effectively spray so that the driveway will dry evenly I would GREATLY appreciate it.

    this looks like an oil product correct? if so those lines will be there for a while

    Ya it is an oil based product. Will it blend in and become uniform or will it be there for a LONG WHILE?

    Try turning up your pressure or putting a new tip on. A worn out tip will show those lines even when you have good pressure.

    The tip and gun are both brand new. When I was working today I was thinking that the pressure was low. I will try doing that ;)

    Thanks!
