Did you know that water evaporates from your sealcoat tank dropping the level of your sealer over time? As a sealcoater you should always use a dipstick and check the level of your sealer when you store your unit at the end of the day. When you go to use your sealcoat machine again simply recheck the level of your sealer and refill (with water) it back to its original storage level. This will allow you to maintain the dilution rate of your sealer so it doesn't get too thick and create pump/spraying issues and it will also increase your profits as you won't be losing mixed product through evaporation. 

Check the level of your sealer before storage and after storage; refill with water to restore your tank to its pre-storage levels.
