    Question for everyone. Do you pay for the shirts for your team members? What are your guidelines? For example, number of shirts you provide. How often to you replacement?

    Hey Al, you're correct with the larger tank making the pump run longer and that's what allows a longer "draw down" time before cycling the pump back on.

    If you use one less than 2 gallons, let me know how it works.  It's my thinking that a larger tank makes the pump stay on longer than a smaller one.  I used the 2 gallon by hunch and it worked perfectly so I stuck with it.  You may have to play with the pressure in the tank a little.

    Hey Chris its like 700 LB heavy nothing 1 guys cant lift right? JK! We have another Eaton Compressor its a smaller one but anytime there is an issue they just send us the parts so Id imagine it would be that same. For example lets say the compressor cracks.. I would imagine they would just send us another compressor ( not motor or tank) Our old compressor we had a bad pressure regulator and they just mailed us a new one. We also had some ball valves so bad when draining 1 of the tanks and they just mail it.. They seem to have great customer service Ill let you know if we ever manage to break it!

    II wonder how the warranty works ? These big air compressors are quite heavy and bulky, expensive to ship back to Eaton I would think ?

    Al9226 told me that his residential water heater expansion tank idea worked great. He said he just replaced it after three years (as scheduled maintenance) and had never had a problem or any leaks
    I wentvwith a smaller one that I found on Amazon. I would have gotten a larger one, but they all had those clip connections and I couldn't use those because I'm going with a 1" line from the pump to the accumulator and I had to have threads. I'll post a picture later and a performance update once my season gets rolling.

    Very nice

    The accumulator I purchase from Pressure Tek is small. Over the years, I have replaced it twice. Can someone recommend a better accumulator?

    That makes sense. Thanks for the info guys!
  12. PeakOfPerfection added a post in a topic Improving The Fat Boy Roof Cleaning Pump !   

    The diaphragm is the problem. Butyl is incompatible with SH. This is why the small accumulators fail. 
  13. crappiecrazed added a post in a topic Custom Bleach Proof Shirts   

    Looks Great in my opinion!  I have found a company that makes 100% polyester shirts called sporttek.  I wear long sleeve all summer to keep sun exposure down.  these shirts have taken roof mix all last year, no bleaching!!!

    Hey guys since I got over 30 request ill just list the info you need on here. Before you contact read this entire message and just don't jump to calling.
    1st off you can design the shirts your self, go thru a designer, or the t shirt company will design it for you. DO NOT go through the t shirt company they are not the brightest crayon in the box. Also if you are a UAMCC member and you get the logo on their shirts you get a big discount I think its like 20% or so we are members and we put the logo on our shirt please see the back of the shirt for reference. We also paid the designer to create the design of the shirts and then he will send all the files to the t shirt company. 
    So who designed my shirts? KBK Graphx his name is Keith and this is his website. http://www.kbkdesign.com/  Let him know Don from Curb Appeal Pros sent you!
    Who made my shirts? E3 http://e3sport.com/index.php   ( they are not on top of it so plan on a little back and forth with them) The website you go to custom shirts they have templates at the very bottom you can choose from and then you can tell them where you want the words and you can create you own design that way but its limited. There is another company called All About Promotions his name is Jim his website is http://www.promobiz.biz/ also let him know we sent you!
    Jim at promo biz is on top of it with FANTASTIC customer service however with him you have to over a min of 10 shirts I think VS E3 you can order 1 or 100..
    I hope this helps you guys if you have questions plz feel free to msg me or call I don't mind helping. ill do a review of the shirts on our youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZXhqD80UTr1iqHX9JhrP0w  so make sure you SUB and you can see when we post it. We also review a lot of products so check it out.
    Thanks guys and keep on cleaning!
     
  15. coastal1 added a post in a topic USE 30 SPF LIP PROTECTION. I HAVE LIP CANCER!   

    Chuck,
    Are the doctors sure it was sun exposure or is it possible that the chapstick is the culprit. It seems as though each year we see a commercial or news print of different things causing cancer down the road.
    Mike
  16. Bergman Roof Cleaning added a post in a topic USE 30 SPF LIP PROTECTION. I HAVE LIP CANCER!   

    I used sunscreen on my face and ears for the last 15 years or so, but because I was using chapstick, with an spf 4 7-8 times a day, I never thought about getting lip cancer!
    I imagine the overspray in the face of roof mix don't help much either!
  17. PressureWasherProducts added a post in a topic Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant is the BEST!   

    Sounds great!  However, you only need about 8 OUNCES and not a quart for the 100 gallon ratio mix!  The savings is incredible!  It is less expensive than dollar store gain or dawn dish soap. 
  18. coastal1 added a post in a topic Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant is the BEST!   

    Hey guys, thanks for the interest! Yes, my lines are exact duplicates of one another and with the exact same bends. Yes, I'm trying three inputs so the system can be used for spraying roofs along with siding.
    I know I can simply combine the surfactant along with the sh however, I want a design for when I don't need a surfactant.
    I'm almost certain my problem is trying to incorporate an emergency remote solenoid control valve in the system. When I first start the system, everything is fine however when I test the shut off solenoid I think too much back pressure is being applied to the surfactant port which is causing a restricted flow upon re-energizing the solenoid valve.
    Mike
  19. Roof Cleaning Virginia added a post in a topic Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant is the BEST!   

    Coastal1 - why run 3 inputs when two will do?  Maybe I'm missing something -   Unless you're using your roof cleaning pump for house washes as well?  That would explain it I guess.
    Re: Slo Mo, I will be trying it at the beginning of our season.  Historically, we've used a locally procured surfactant, as it was more cost effective than specialty surfactants after shipping.  However; with this stuff working at a 1 quart to 100 gallon ratio, it IS cost effective even with shipping costs.  Looking forward to trying it, and hopefully buying a 55 gallon barrel after our trial run.
  20. Apple Roof Cleaning (813) 655-8777 added a post in a topic Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant is the BEST!   

    Are all 3 lines exactly the same, with the same bends in each of them ? 
  21. coastal1 added a post in a topic Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant is the BEST!   

    Excellent. I'm developing a new proportioning system and having a few hold backs with the pull on the third line. Not needing as much surfactant may very well be the cure.

    Roof and Siding Cleaning in Will County Joliet
    Looking at the condition of this house near the , you know the owner takes pride in the property’s appearance. The siding is clean and attractive and the lawn is a lush green and well maintained.  There is one thing though that is out of place and you probably noticed it right away. It is the dirty roof. Even with the siding clean and nicely painted and the attractive yard, you just can’t help but be distracted by that stained roof. And you know the neighbors sure notice!
    Fortunately though there is solution. For the rest of the story, go here.
