I'm thinking of buying a sprayer, and the previous owner used it to control fireblight on his pear trees. Should I be concerned with whatever was put in the tank to control fireblight when I use the tank to simply water vegetables?

I've used my 2 gallon sprayer for everything from herbicides, pre-emergent, sopey bug spray, fertilizers, etc.
Butt ! I allways wash out with soap, after use.
If your not sure. Buy new one. Save old one for chemical use.
Harbor Freight has 2 gallon sprayers, for like 10 bucks.
Home depot or local hardware store, has some cute little 2 quart, pump-up sprayers, for less. Whatever suits your need. Thumbs up

Thank you for the response. This is a 60 gallon tank so I only want to buy one. Lol. Soapy water is a good suggestion.
