    Just wanted to say thanks to all the posts on this Forum with great info on liquid application.
    i put this together with a 7 gpm 12 volt pump, strainer, solinoid valve, and a remote wireless control. I added a 25 foot hose and hand sprayer that works great for sidewalks and steps. I made it self contained on the hitch mount so i can just pull it off when not in use and the power comes from my trailer light plug so installation is only a couple of minutes.
    A few contractors with accounts near mine liked how it works and how good my lots look when i'm done now have me making units for them....pretty cool...thanks again all

    WOW thats a lot of storage tanks to hold 5000 gallons. But what ever works at the lowest cost.

    Spray set up looks good

    I've got 9000 gallons worth of storage. I bought totes for less than $50 each. The nice thing is i don't have to worry about the kid that runs the truck over filling the tank as long as he comes back empty.
