Have you ever thought you prepared the perfect application, but gotten less-than-perfect results? As the largest component of a spray tank mix, water can significantly impact application quality. Hard water, the pH of the water, or dirty water can all affect the efficacy of a spray tank mix. Water conditioners can help to mitigate these issues.
