Are any of you running merit through your drip system to do a drench , and if so, what is your application rate ? Im talking about the water soluble powder kind.

4 tsp of 75 WP for 1000 sqft you would want to flush out the lines when finished. Have no way for the treated water to enter the freshwater supply.Exp..don't let the end of the supply line touch the treated water because it could back siphon

Thanks baitman. I did not think about having that in my water supply. I do have a quality check valve at the start of my water line, but now you have me thinking that it may not be the safest way to apply.
I would be adding it in my injector, and let it syphon thru like all my ferts. I think it would be safer to just shoot it thru my hose end sprayer. I think i will do that right before the next rain event.
