- Always keep a case of green aerosol or five gallons of green bulk paint on hand. Use in emergencies such as painting mistakes, field vandalism, or spots of turf discoloration.
- Aerosol paint is more durable in damp conditions. Always keep a few cases in storage if you need to paint in rainy weather.
- Store aerosol cases upside down to keep paint and propellants in solution. Shake can well when ready to use to give a higher-quality paint appearance and more yield per can.
- Always keep extra spray tips, strainers, and a spare pump on the shelf. This will be invaluable in an emergency situation.
- Never clear a clogged spray tip with any pointed or sharp objects. Doing so will permanently damage spray quality. Instead, soak the tips in warm water and use a firm bristle brush.
- Wash stripers down after each use so that they are always in good working order.
