I throttle the water back, it helps move things faster. If you get caught with a near-full sprayer you can suck just chemical, but it doesn't seem to come out any faster. I think the water helps the pump keep it's prime. With a venturi you HAVE to have water, sometimes that just isn't workable if the sprayer is almost full. This way is flexible.

I suck out of totes for higher volume products through the suction side of a 3" pump, I measure the totes and mark with a sharpie (7.2 gallons per inch). It's very fast, reliable and as accurate as using meters. I can routinely mix and load our 1,200 gallon sprayer in 6-8 minutes by myself and the more products I suck directly from the totes is the less I have to worry about rinsing my mix tanks.

When we have an extra person we use a pull type sprayer with the booms taken off and a few mods, everything is mixed, pump running and hose ready to fill the SP. Takes another person if you dont have someone chasing you with the water truck, but beats roading the sprayer everywhere and can fill in under 10 minutes, compared to 30+ sucking out of the tote and mixing with the chem handler.
