I am emailing to inquire about Item # 287414. The 25 gal electric sprayer: can additional hoses be purchased and attached? The sprayer comes with 15′ hose and we need it to be double or triple that length. Thanks.
We have added up to 50 feet of hose onto this unit in the past and it’s worked quite well so adding enough to have 30 or 45 feet will be fine. However, currently we don’t have any of the extra hose in stock so you’ll have to wait till next week for us to give you an exact quote. I think what we’ve done in the past is to change out the 15 feet to be either 25 or 50 and we would essentially be replacing the existing hose prior to shipment. The 15 foot section would still be part of the purchase and sent along; the 25 or 50 foot amount would be set up at our shop and purchased as a separate item but we do the configuring for you. When the sprayer arrives, it will be ready to go with the new hose installed.
If using Scotts hand held spreader for the Deltaguard Granules, should the setting be on #3?
The setting for your spreader should be found on the label of the DELTA GUARD GRANULES. You can see a copy of it here:

The bottom line is the setting is not as important as getting the right amount applied to the area you want treated. Delta Guard calls for 2-3 lbs per 1,000 square feet of turf. To get this, you’ll need to have the spreader set at the level that allows you to accomplish this based on how fast you move when the granules are sprinkled. I always like to start with a low setting and then mark off the area I know I need to cover with any given amount. I attempt to accomplish this with the low setting and then adjust as needed. If I find my normal pace of walking causes me to only apply half of what I need, I’ll turn the setting up a notch or two to let out more as I walk. Eventually I figure it out and you can do the same if you can’t find a good setting to start with. I don’t know the available options on your spreader but I do know that 2-3 lb’s per 1000 square feet is a medium amount so I would start somewhere between what would be considered a low to medium setting. This may not let out enough but remember, if this happens you can always go back and get it right. Alternatively, if you have the setting too wide open and apply too much, you’ll end up getting it all where it doesn’t need to be and there is no way to pick up what you put out again so it will have been wasted. In other words, it’s better to start with less being applied and adjust up. Good luck!!
