My sprinkler feeds water from the lake. Can this tank be used with it.
Asked by: Tess

can i use snow cap in this system.

I am wondering how much chemicals are going to cost. I have a new white fence in back yard and a few spots on my house where this system will be used. I can simply use my one gallon cleaner that will last me a month, or switch to this. Any thoughts? thanks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tank Lid cracks in the sun The tank lid on this system cracked and disintegrated after one year in the Florida sun. The manufacturer's replacement part is very expensive relative to the cost of a whole new system and the shipping charge is also very expensive. Telephone customer service for this company is very poor. One must press numerous different menu selections on their automated system before finally being directed and then the message is that all agents are busy. There is no option to hold. You can either leave a message or call back later. Then it hangs up. They are not BBB accredited and the BBB site lists numerous unresolved complaints. Beware

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SprinkleRite costs - beware! There are a few things you NEED to understand before you buy this product that are NOT SPELLED OUT CLEARLY ENOUGH BY THE MANUFACTURER. 1) what kind of well system do you have 2) what HP is your pump 3) what is your install and running budget. The system is designed for installation on the suction side of a pump and initially comes across as inexpensive - <$100 for the tank system and <$10/gal for the chemicals. However, if you have a submersible well pump like I do (and most of the people do in my area) and you also use that well for your house supply, the initial cost will be MUCH greater as I found out. First off, you will need to have an electrician install an outlet at your well. Second, for a submersible well, you will need to buy an injection pump kit from the company (WM Barr) at $250. Third, if your well is also being used for your house water, you will need a pump start relay $50 (and installed by an electrician). Forth, you will need a signal wire installed (in my case trenched to well) from your irrigation controller to start the relay above. Fifth, you will need to make sure you have a backflow preventer installed (you should have this already) and it is installed BEFORE the injection point. If it isn't you will need to move it. So, your $100 turns into $400 plus installation and electrical work. I did the work myself, but this could easily run $600-900. Also, for a 2HP pump, as I have, the MINIMUM amount of Norust chemical the manufacturer recommends is 8 gal. That's 8gal x $9/gal = $72 at the HomeDepot. I hope this thing works....heads up to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price This was very easy to install, I just put a couple of paver blocks beside my pump house to support the tank. Make sure that you paint the tank with a sunlight resistant paint since many had the plastic crack from sunlight exposure. I did tape of the recessed stripe up the side of the tank so I can see how much liquid is left without pulling the top off. The Plumbing screwed right into the plugged inlet tap on my Sta-Rite pump. I was concerned with the cost of the chemicals so I ordered the dry chemical from off the internet. I was actually very pleased with how little chemical was used and how well it kept the iron stains off my concrete walks/driveways. I am saving money and a lot of time by not having to spray monthly the stains with Goof Off Rust Remover.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from no suction My pump would not suck the chemical from the tank. I have a sprinkler pump that might not have enough suction power to work with this system.. i had to buy a dosing pump to be able to send the chemical from the tank to the pump. Now it works as it is supposed to. The chemical is too expensive, though. I found a cheaper option of the chemical(from another manufacturer) on the Internet and saving a lot of money. The dosing pump that i bought is a milton roy, model AA141-352SI

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money! I bought this system two years ago. Three months ago, I saw that the lid was cracked. Yesterday, I find a crack in the container and the water was leaking out. Buyer beware!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work Nothing is siphoned from the tank when installed according to instructions. The same liquid has been in the tank for over a year. Some evaporation because the top cracked. Wasted money.
