How often should the timer be set to come on?
nature be your guide. In early spring, 2-3 times a day for
45-60 seconds should be adequate. As different pests swarm
or become active, you may increase or decrease the number
of sprays you use. You should never need to exceed 6 times
per 24-hour period.
Q9: How long before I have to refill?
frequency of re-filling your system will depend upon the number
of nozzles, the number of sprays per 24 hours, the severity
of the insect problem and the length of each spray cycle.
Our finely machined spray nozzles each emit approximately
1.1 ounces per minute at 200 PSI. The average custgomer sprays
about four minutes total per day. This equates to a usage
of about one-gallon per nozzle per month. All systems are
protected by an automatic shut off that keeps the system from
running when the tank is dry, thereby protecting your pump
from being destroyed. The system shuts itself off when the
liquid level is too low.
Q10: What type of maintenance does the system require?
All maintenance will be done by your MOSQUITO-PROtm
dealer. (1) You should rinse your intake filter (that hangs
inside the drum) each time you refill your drum. Washing your
intake filter prevents clogging of your nozzle tips and filters.
(2) Your tank should be washed out at least once a year to
remove any natural bacterial growth or residue accumulation.
(3) When refilling your system, check to assure pressure is
set under 200 PSI. This prolongs the life of your pump. (4)
If at all possible, use softened or filtered water to prolong
the life of your tips and filters.
