Spraying horticultural vinegar


Any concerns about the acidity- 20% vinegar- affecting parts of sprayers? I am looking at this sprayer- https://www.amazon.com/Operated-Fert...5Z96EXA29VDPQZ

Re: Spraying horticultural vinegar


As long as you rinse the sprayer out soon after you finish spraying it shouldn't be an issue. I wouldn't let the vinegar solution stay in the sprayer over a long period of time however. For a regular pump up sprayer it probably never would be an issue but considering this one has a pump inside I wouldn't take any chances.

Ayuh,..... Regardless what sorta sprayer ya use, it'll need to be flushed out really good after use of acid, or chlorine,....
Repeated flushin' with water should save the sprayer,....
I know, I've ruined a few,.....

As for what yer tryin' to do with the vinegar, I'd use Clorox,.....
Clorox is very, Very effective in killin' weeds right down to the root, 'n dissipates fairly quickly without adverse effects on the surroundin' environment,...
