    I would think that the commercial units that apply grass seed and fertilizer in a slurry at major construction and landscaping projects would be applicable for that function.

    Could be wrong though.

    Phos-chek actually makes a retardant that is not colored for use in ground engines. I have never seen it used in person but have seen videos of the retardant being sprayed from a tender / engine, treating fuels next to a road.

    Contact Phos-chek. They can give you more info. http://phos-chek.com

    Just my opinion. Stay safe.

    I wonder if this might work for you?

    Here is the quote that went with the photo from Pierce "Photo Caption: Pierce Manufacturing has placed this Pierce Tactical Water Tender into service with the Garden Valley Fire Protection District located in California’s El Dorado County."
