    I'm thinking about pre-wetting this year with liquid calcium.

    Can anyone give me some pointers?

    Should I spray the spinner, or spray in the chute?

    Recommended application rate?

    One nozzle or two? Pump or nozzle advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    I spray in the chute just before it hits the spinner, i use a 1.5 gpm wide fan nozzle ( 130 degree spray pattern ) I have heard 8 to 10 gallons per ton of salt, but i probably use more
