    Tote Mixing Tips

    To ensure optimal mulch colorant performance, Colorbiotics recommends these mixing guidelines:

    1. Always practice first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory management.
    2. ​​​​​​​Prolong shelf life with proper storage. ​
      • Keep product out of direct sunlight
      • Do not allow product to freeze​​
    3. ​​Maintain the condition of your tote mix.​
      • Look at shaft alignment—it shouldn't be bent.
      • Make sure the blades are free to move.
      • Ensure the mixer is securely fastened to the tote​
    4. Choose the correct blade placement.​
      • 330-gallon Tote: Move blades down to the bottom of the shaft.
      • ​275-gallon Tote: Blades should be placed in a higher position​​ on the shaft.
    5. ​​​​​​​​Check blades for clockwise rotation.
      • ​​Because blades won't extend when rotating counterclockwise
    6. ​​Know when its time to mix product. and when its time to stop.
      • 60 minutes. That's how long product should be mixed prior to use.
      • 4 months. That's how often product should be mixed in extended storage.
      • 12 inches. That's how low the colorant level can reach before the mixer should be stopped.​
