Thank you so much for your advice and instructions for applying the Silox to the mud adobe walls around my yard. I had five different walls that required the application. I used a two gallon deck sprayer to apply to product. (I would have loved to have used a five gallon sprayer had I thought it wouldn’t affect my back.)
I calculated an application of one gallon per 60 sq. ft., per your advice, and then measured out 120 sq. ft. on each wall. That way, I could insure I used the proper amount for each section, and also know how many times I would need to fill my sprayer.
Next, I used my leaf blower and blew off cobwebs, leaves, and dirt, so that I got the best coverage possible. (As a side note, I also built a spreadsheet with each wall and the dimensions, so when I need to reapply in five years, I will know exactly how much each section will require without having to re-measure. At 60 years old, there’s no way I’m going to remember anything about this project five years from now, LOL.)
The 1950 sq. ft. of walls took me nearly 12 hours to complete. With a larger sprayer, I’m sure it would have taken a lot less time, but you have to do, what you have to do, right? In the end, with the amount of Silox I used, I calculate that I applied an average of 1 gallon per 73 sq. ft. The walls look and feel great, and I’m happy that I could get them treated before the monsoon season begins.
Thanks again, Roy. See you in five years!!
