Reinforcing spray races: each time the sump drops 200L, add 250mL of Taktic EC without adding water and continue spraying. Repeat reinforcement until no more wash can be pumped out.

Topping up: use dilution for initial charging (400mL per 200L water). If spray wash is to be retained in the sump, it must be stabilised using hydrated lime (80% purity) at the rate of 2kg/200L of spray wash.
