Dramm Syphonject Fertilizer Sprayer


Categories: ,

Dramm’s Syphonject draws a concentrated solution from a bucket through a flexible suction tube and then dilutes it with the passing water stream at an approximate ration of 20 parts water to 1 part concentrated solution.


How to mix a Concentrated Solution

Determine how much solution you will need. Certain fertilizers require an application of a specific amount of product over a specific area. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. Prepare a water/fertilizer solution that is 20 times stronger than the rate normally used. For each gallon of water used in your solution, mix in 20 times the manufacturer’s recommended rate of fertilizer. For each gallon of concentrated solution you prepare, your Syphonject will apply 20 gallons of correctly diluted solution.

Determine the ratio of your syphonject.

What you will need:

1. A large container you know the Volume of (Example – 5 Gallon Bucket)
2. A Small container you know the volume of (Example – 1 Quart Bottle)

Step 1:

Set up the Syphonject on the Faucet. Connect the hose to it.

Step 2:

Fill the small container with clear water (example – 1 Quart) and place the small black siphon hose into it.

Step 3:

Hold the end of the hose in the large container (example – 5 Gallon Bucket)

Step 4:

Turn on the water and fill the large container until the small container is empty.

Step 5:

Measure the amount in the large container (Example – 4 Gallons)

Step 6:

Calculate the ratio. 5 gallons (20 Quarts) to 1 Quart = 20: 1
