What setting do I use ? The Ortho Dial N Spray Hose End Sprayer needs to be set to one of the 14 dilution settings (1 tsp to 8 oz per gallon of water).
Water does not need to be added into the Solutions Hose End Sprayer tank since it will pre-mix with water when spraying. We recommend you create a solution of 1 part water, 1 part pesticide, and 1 part surfactant inside the sprayer`s bottle to enhance your application.
If the label says to mix at 1 tablespoon of pesticide per 1 gallon of water, then set the dial to 1 tablespoon. If the label says to mix at 4 ounces of fertilizer per 1 gallon of water, then set the dial at 4 ounces.
The correct volume of spray is the sprayer application rate multiplied by the number of acres. You want to spray a 12-acre field and your sprayer applies 20 gallons per acre. Therefore, put (20 × 12 =) 240 gallons of pesticide and carrier in the tank.
A: We recommend 5 parts water to 1 part Spray & Forget concentrate for all initial cleaning applications and 9 parts water to 1 part Spray & Forget concentrate for all preventive applications.
Simply add the concentrate to the sprayer bottle, set the sprayer to setting for mL per Liter to mix (usually 7 for Killex and WeedOut), attach hose, select the sprayer nozzle setting and start spraying! This sprayer is also ideal for spraying insect killers, fungicides, and liquid fertilizers besides weed killers.

I need the owners manual for the ortho dial n spray hose end sprayer.
From forums.gardenweb.com “The instructions on Ortho Garden Disease
Control (Daconil) give directions for use in the dial and spray. Set
dial at 4 Oz. Add 1 TBS Daconil and 7 TBS water for each gallon you
want. I am using the dial and spray and don’t see as much residue as
when I was using a pump spray.
My ortho dial n spray will not work properly. All that comes out is water from the hose – it is not mixing with the weed killer.
Use rubber gloves to remove the top from the jar and wash completely to remove any poisons. Turn lid upside down and examine suction tube for breaks and clogging. If tube is broken, discard whole thing and try another brand. There are four phillips head screws readily visible. Remove screws to reveal innards of gadget. The suction tube has a spring on it. If tube is clogged you can now try to get water through it and flush . If it is clogged and does not flush, throw the thing away. My suction tube was ok, but the thing wouldn’t work. Now look at the dial, which is loose. Note which side is up and, when you take it off, note the hole with the black o-ring under it.Now look at the dial. You will see a series of holes, starting with a big one and progressing to tiny ones. Suction through these holes makes the thing work and a given setting will not work if its hole is clogged. Do not try to poke something in the holes. That would spoil your calibration. Use an air compressor, if you have one, to blow out each hole from each side. No compressor, try a straw. Reassemble, maybe having a helper hold it together against the spring tension while you put the screws in. Put some water in a cup, attach hose, turn water on and see if water disappears from the cup at each setting. Worked for me.
