A Land Surveyor is used to buying a cheap spray paint for $3.75 a can, but he has to spray 2 or 3 times to coat the same mark. So it takes at least 2 cans to do or mark what thisprefabricated permanent paint does and lasts longer, 2 cans x $3.75 = $7.50 and2 times longer in labor, compared at $1.30 per unit of prefabricated paint,also each time the Surveyor has to use the mark he has to coat it with spraypaint again and again.
