Turbo Turf uses a centrifugal pump for it’s compost
tea sprayer. The oversized plumbing allows you far more control of
pressure than other sprayers. Many sprayers of compost tea feel that
pressures above 70 PSI can start to affect the microbes in the tea. It
is important with compost tea to avoid both the high pressures that a
diaphragm pump can generate and the friction that a roller pump uses to
pump the material.
Turbo Turf’s Compost Tea Sprayers are plumbed to
be SELF FILLING. A second pump is not required to fill the sprayer
from a brewer. They come with an oversized filter. Should your tea
have a lot of solids that do clog the filter the screen may be removed
without affecting the unit. The centrifugal pump is excellent at
dealing with the solids that are in Compost Tea.

control of the bypass than other units. Experts have mixed
opinions about aeration in the tank. Some feel since you aerate
Compost Tea when you brew it that aeration in the sprayer tank is good
and helps prolong the life of the living matter. Others feel the
movement is harmful and aeration should be minimized. Turbo Turf's
units allow you full control to have lots of aeration if you want it or
far less than other units if you don't.

electrical system of the transport vehicle. Without the electric start
the reel would need to be hard wired to your truck.
