Frequently Asked Questions


How do I decontaminate a sprayer after use?

After use, the equipment must be thoroughly washed  inside and out with clean water andwater must be passed through the discharge assembly. For total decontamination, there is available on the market an alkali soap that should be added during a second wash, and the mixture then left  for 24 hours in the equipment. In case of difficulty in finding this product, agrochemical manufacturers recommend a weak solution of Caustic Soda (NaOH). If in doubt, , please contact the manufacturer of the agrochemical in question.
