    This is the end of the day you have finished up all of your applications what is your tank rinse procedure?

    What if you have leftover mixture?

    Depending on how much you have left,you can just add to it as long your mixing the same stuff.

    I learned at T. Green. We were always careful to drain and rinse our tanks--EVERY November. Usually not on their own (leased) property but on the vacant industrial lot next door. Otherwise we just added to the tank until it was full again.

    Keep in mind there is no easy way to get rid of the left over solution and rinsate--you can arrange to have it hauled away as toxic waste for a few hundred dollars, of course.
