If you have a limited amount of clean water to rinse your sprayer, this app can help you decide how to make the best use of it.  Simple enter two values – the amount of pesticide remaining in your tank sump (including the suction line to the pump and the return line to the tank), and the amount of clean water you want to add.  The units (gal, L) are not important as long as they are the same for both entries.

The app allows you to calculate the dilution power of up to 5 sequential rinses.
