Eric from Great Falls, Montana writes,

Will Select Source Tank Cleaner Select ensure my 2 gallon sprayer is free of residue from previous pesticides or herbicides?

I have filled my Chapin 2 Gallon Sprayer with Cyzmic CS and 2,4-D several times since I have owned it. Now I have some Termidor SC that I would like to use around the perimeter of my house. How can I best ensure that my sprayer is free of residue from previous herbicide/insecticides?


We do recommend cleaning your sprayer after every use. Also, do not leave product in your sprayer for more than 24 hours. You want to make sure that you triple rinse to remove any chemicals left behind from your previous applications. Using Select Source Tank Cleaner Select will help to prolong the life of your spraying equipment and help you to avoid dangerous chemical mixing and cross-contamination.
