Look Out for Mother Earth and Increase Spraying Efficiency

We often talk about tips to get the most out of your sprayer, but how about tips to minimize our ecological footprint? Here are three easy ways to reduce our impact by spraying responsibly.

3 Tips for Eco-Friendly Spraying

1. Maintain Your Sprayer

Spraying season is in full swing, which means your sprayer is getting used more often and should be service more often to minimize waste. Worn out parts can lead to leaks and dribbles, allowing liquids to seep out in unwanted places and leading to less effective coverage of the areas you actually wanted to spray.

Replace spray nozzles and maintain or update spray guns, calibrate your system, change the oil, and inspect the hoses often. Routine maintenance of your equipment will go a long way in keeping water and chemical waste down and productivity up. Our Resources Page includes several videos and manuals on maintaining and repairing spray equipment and accessories.

2. Choose the Right Equipment for the Job

Would you use a saw to cut paper? A firehose to water potted plants? They would be totally inefficient for the job at hand. It's the same with sprayers - choosing the right equipment for the job is key. When selecting your spray equipment, consider the type of project and the coverage area to determine the right pressure and droplet size to maximize efficiency. You want to ensure you are not overdosing and causing unnecessary pollution and contamination. 

Considering drift control spray tips? Here are six reasons why they are a smart choice for spraying efficiency.

3. Aim for the Right Time

Timing is everything! Decide when and how often you should spray. Take into consideration the weather and how the temperature can affect your spraying efforts. Good timing will not only provide cost-saving results but will also reduce the amount of chemicals used and wasted. 

Whether your project is big or small, these tips can help your business become more eco-friendly. Spray safely and responsibly!
