But they all yield UC (=ultra coarse?) droplet size. Not good?
AI and AIC TeeJet tips don't have ratings below 30psi in the chart.
AIXR tips have XC (=extremely coarse?) droplet sizes at 20psi, not ideal for prodiamine?
Not sure why you think UC or XC droplets are not ideal. Prodiamine is a soil app, not contact or systemic. I am personally going to choose at least an XC, preferrable UC droplet size for soil apps.
The question marks signaled I was asking if XC or UC was OK or not.

Yes, I saw that. Doesn't change my response. Not trying to be snarky or anything, I was just wondering. If you don't know because this is all new to you then let me rephrase. For soil apps, you generally want coarser droplets. TBH, I'm not sure how coarse you need to be but my thought is the coarser the better so the drops are bigger and heavier and drop below the canopy easily. If you're going to irrigate right after applying, it probably doesn't matter much. But, seeing as when you choose a 15 or 20 psi CF valve, you do get a lot of options in the UC size, I don't see why one wouldn't just pick that.

Does this mean that each color cap is specific to the spray tips indicated in each row? i.e. if you want the AI Teejet tip then you should get the red cap (3rd row) and that tip wouldn't fit the white cap (first row)? At first, I thought that it was all the same part and you just picked a color based on preference. It's not clear on the spraysmarter site. It just lets you select color of the cap but no indication that there are differences.
You would want that red one for an AI nozzle, but no - most of those caps are available in 10 colors. See color code chart on the top right corner of the catalog page. Also see "How to order:" section on the bottom right corner of the catalog page.

So will the cap & gasket set linked by @FlaDave work with all three tips he linked?

With limited experience today, I would say the chapin 20v can not keep up with a 2-3 boom nozzle setup. I had a significant pressure difference between the 2 aixr nozzles I had on the 2 boom.
which nozzles were you running?

I ordered the 2 boom chapin and XR11002 VS nozzles. At 0.2gpm@40PSI the 2 nozzles will put out the 0.4gpm that the original red fan tip and keep under the pump spec of 0.4-0.5gpm from chapin.

Just wondering if I am doing this right.

Will a 1.8gpm pump rated at 60psi (although usually runs around 40 psi when spraying) be capable of spraying 3 nozzles?

This is on an atv sprayer that I am wanting to build a small 3 nozzle boom for to provide faster spraying of my property. I would be using this for both Pre-M and Post-M spraying.

It can. You will need to stay under the GPM rating of the pump AI110-04 nozzles operated in sets of three need 1.2 GPM. The extra 0.6 GPM is to maintain pressure and agitation

right now, the tank has no agitation. How difficult is it to add it? Or would it require a different pump.

Also, 3 of these nozzles would require a 40" boom, correct? One nozzle in center and one on each end?

Agitation would be nice to have but I have a 16 gallon tank with no agitation on a 3 nozzle boom and have had no problem spraying common liquid and wettable granular herbicides with no clogging or material settling out. I also have TeeJet 50 mesh screens installed behind the nozzles to catch any foreign matter before it gets to the nozzles.

I first mix all ingredients thoroughly with water in a five gallon bucket with a drill attached stirrer. I fill the tank half way with water, add the mix from the five gallon bucket then top it off with water and then use the stirrer inside the tank for final mixing.

Stirrer link: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Allway-17-75-i ... s/50427878

I used 43" boom length to account for nozzle bracket widths and to cap off the ends of the 3/4" Sched 40 PVC pipe I used as the boom.
There are quite a few boom builds you can search for and get ideas from in this equipment forum.

Thanks guys!

I have the stirrer and normally just put everything into the tank and then use the drill and stirrer in the tank.

Currently using the Field King Max and enjoying it. I have used it to spray FAS, homemade RGS, fungicide, Prodiamine, Wet and Forget (on house), and Bifenthrin. Typically spraying either 4ksf, 1ksf or 5ksf (back, front, both). I have noticed that using their red nozzle (which I understand to be the higher flow fan nozzle), I typically have to walk over my lawn twice in order to spray 1G/1M with the red nozzle. I can't get myself to walk slow enough to make it work in a single pass.

Does anyone have a recommendation of an XR nozzle (for FAS and herbicides) that is slightly higher flow than than default nozzle supplied with this backpack sprayer? The problem is that I do not know the flow rates of the nozzle they provide. So I feel like I have no good starting point understanding. I guess if I understood what normal walking speeds typically were, I would be able to approximate based on the chart Ware provided in the 4th post (I am thinking 2.5ish-mph). Another issue is I have no idea what psi I am typically keeping while walking/pumping. Any recommendations?

Also, does anyone have a recommendation for an AI nozzle (for Prodiamine apps) that is slightly higher flow than the default red nozzle with this backpack sprayer?

Due to the fact that I only need (2) nozzles, I will probably go VS since cost is not a huge deal.

Is anyone using the Blue nozzles? I have a Spreadermate and my yard has some grade. I had sprinklers installed recently and it is also bumpy currently.

I started with red nozzles and i was putting out way to much. I just could not move fast enough with the weight and slope.

I put the yellows that came with it back on, but now I am doing double passes.

Common sense says blues are my next try, but figured I would see if anyone has had success.

I use the blue AI 110-03 nozzles for when I do not feel like running. I am also able to up the pressure to 50 PSI, get more and slightly finer droplets for better coverage as well, while still applying 1 gallon per K. If I have the red AI 110-04 nozzles installed on my boom, that applies at least 1.25 gallons per K unless I am running. In order for me to apply no more than 1 gallon per K and not run, I would have to drop the pressure to 30 PSI, which then compromises coverage. AI nozzles have a recommended pressure range of 30-100 PSI. At 30 PSI, droplets are generated farther apart and are too big for good foliar coverage.

Thanks @Greendoc. I generally run right around 40 psi. Similar to you I found I was going slower up hill and then almost running when I hit the flats. I was closer to 1.75 gal/M with the reds.

Is there a "foaming" teejet nozzle for foliar apps? I was just wondering.

I picked up a Northstar Sprayer with a 2 nozzle boom. One thing I know I've read others complain about is the delayed on/off and dripping from the nozzles. Does anyone recall what was needed to correct this issue? I know it required some type of pressure valve but can't find any size or part number info for it. Also, as stated the boom is 2 nozzles. The nozzles are only adjustable to something like 36" apart. The highest the boom can mount is about 30". Should I try and modify the boom to bring the nozzles closer to the 20x20 recommendation for spraying? Or maybe just get as close to equal height and width as possible? My only concern would be that spraying from over 30" off the ground would result in poor application rates and coverage.
I have the same type of sprayer, the 31 gallon. I’m planning to use pvc to modify the boom height and go to a 3 nozzle setup. I need to research to create a parts list.

Nozzle dripping is a pain. One nozzle might discharge 1/2 cup after power off.
What teejet tips would you use on a 2 nozzle setup?

Will a backpack sprayer with a .3 gpm pump be capable of spraying out of a boom?

Not unless you ran the lowest GPM capacity Teejet nozzles like XR11001's and then you would only get around .3 Gal/M of fluid output walking at 2.5 MPH.

You might get away with one nozzle like the XR11002 but you need to know the PSI capability of your sprayer to determine the nozzle that would work best.

For a large lawn like yours I would be looking at something similar to this.

I have the echo 4 gallon backpack sprayer with the hand pump. If i wanted to get a red and blue nozzle in the XR and AI varieties would i need anything else to make it work with my wand or is it just a simple swap? Amazon the best place to get them?

You should be able to drop a TeeJet nozzle in the cap for the "fixed fan" nozzle that came with your sprayer. Amazon, Sprayer Depot or Spray Smarter are probably your best bet.
