    Is it possible to mix your own brine in a golf course type fert sprayer? 150 gal. tank with built in mixers. We clean a lot of private roadways and have a sprayer available to use.

    I don't have a recipe to offer, but sure, it could be done.

    I have similar equipment, as well as a hydroseeder, and had thought about using either for Brine, but frankly, I'm not willing to run and store saltwater through them. It's not like chem applications where you can take your time cleaning out in the sunshine at the end of the day, I'd think you'd want the brine laying in there ahead of time and might not be able to clean up well after an application. Is it worth it to you come spring to risk high-dollar chem application equipment? Just my thoughts, it might work out well and save you on buying additional equipment if you're set on brine.

    I would be more worried about spraying weed killer residue with the brine and any residual kill come spring time.
