Thank you.  Is the Solo with the vertical tube in the middle a piston
sprayer?

I don't have any problem with it clogging. I typically put it through a 4
gallon piston pump backpack sprayer. I've put it on straight and in combo
with fish/seaweed, sticker, Entrust, BT, etc. 

 

Never any clog issues. 

 

Add surround(and any other dry ingredients) to a bucket. Add water to
surround while stirring. Stir until well mixed. Add liquids and/or sticker.
Pour into sprayer and top up with water.

 

Shake the sprayer every so often while applying and clean up good at end. I
pour it out. Spray rinse. Dump. Add water. Pump and spray with nozzle
removed until clear. Wash nozzle with hose. Good to go.

Getting ready to try if first time, on squash. I have read it clogs
sprayers, and the folks turn their trays upside down and dunk, and the
plants stay in their trays (we'll see), what brings me to wonder - any
experience putting a concentrate in a hose end sprayer and spraying?  The
labeled rates are pretty wide, so calibration doesn't look like an issue.
