…and are there any tips or tricks to get it right?
We get asked this question A LOT!! And the answer is YES, having the right set up in place is incredibly important and we highly recommend taking the time to do it right from the get-go.
Our number one tip, for people who are new to using products like ours is to remove all fine filters. This is a SUPER important step, as unlike chemical sprays, our products have small speckles of kelp within the concentrate which ultimately you want on your soil not in your spray unit – see pictures below. If fine filters are left in the sprayer, it can result in blockages and problems with getting an even application, not to mention frustration at having to continually unblock the system!! By removing all filters this will allow the product to easily pass through your spray unit.
Our next tip is to spend a little time getting your unit set up correctly. A little time now will save you a lot of time down the track. Invest in a nozzle with a large orifice (see picture below or check out our Brass Nozzle) to help the speckles of kelp we mentioned above pass through your unit – you’ve paid good money for those speckles, and you want the benefits of having them in your soil not your tank. We also recommend using an agitator in the tank such as our venturi.
Our third tip is that it doesn’t have to be fancy. You do not need a brand spanking new spray unit or boom spray to apply our products – I mean it would be nice but it’s not essential. If you’re starting out, check out our DIY spray unit set up. All you need is an old trailer, a firefighting pump and a few other bits and pieces to get you started.
