    Glad I read this post. I was  going to get two gallons of herculiner for my 14' trailer. I think I'll go with the rubber mats instead. Thanks for the info.

    Chuck, I haven't seen or heard of Chapstick causing cancer however, I heard something a few years ago where some type of sunscreen was under review as it may have contributed to skin cancer. Can't remember which brand but it was on the news. 
    I too use Chapstick but not on a regular basis and was just asking about it.

    Sorry about that! I just posted a picture, as it came from my camera? Thanks!

    That's interesting!
    NO, the doctor sim-ply said it was cancer, not specifically from sun exposure-I assumed that, as I have dozens of pre-cancerous tissue spots removed twice a year.
    If it could be caused by Chapstick, I would really like to see the info you speak of! I will go research it now!
    Thanks!

    Such a HUGE and graphic pic!  Really tells a story though. Hoping the best for you. Let us know how you come out.

    I agree to a certain point. Hose size and length of hose matters on how much flow and distance you will get. 20 CFM may be on the low side for a 1in pump however it's plenty enough power to use with a 1 in pump. For example 1 truck has a 20cfm air compressor and it shoots over 3 stories using our 1in pump  so saying you need over 20 CFM is not entirely true. He'll 60 CFM would be a beast however it's not needed or a must have. As far as a Santoprene pump giving you up to 30% more output I am going to have to disagree.  I am not sure how the difference In material would be less effective when it comes to flow or distance.  In front of me  I have 2 new ARO pumps 1 is Teflon and 1 is Santoprene and they are both rated at 53 GPM. I went over the data sheets and and I could not find 1 thing that suggest my Santoprene pump has more output power than my Teflon pump. I guess this is were it comes down to personal opinion but I just wanted to clear up this info for any new guys reading this that you don't need a 30 or 60 CFM compressor to run a 1 in pump or to have it do a good job. We clean 2 story houses with walkout basements all day with our 20cfm compressor and new pumps such as my ARO are a lot more efficient that a 10 to 20 year old pump..
    Last thing as far as the GPM is equal to CFM rule.. if you contact any pump manufacture they will tell you 1 CFM is generally equal to 1 GPM but yes some factors come into play like nozzle size,  hose size, what pump you have but I can tell you that for our systems rinsing with our 1 in pump is by far superior than rinsing with our 10 GPM pressure washer..

    Yup. Still available. I also sell the Gorilla Reel if you need a manual Roof Chem reel that is manifold-less. Call me at the second number in the signature below. 
  10. PeakOfPerfection added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    Nope. There are a lot more variables than that. Depends on the pump, the hose length and size. Each pump is different. You can look at a performance curve to get an idea of what kind of output you'll be getting from X pump with X CFM at X head pressure. As a general rule, 1" pumps need a minimum of 20 CFM. But there are big differences between 1" pumps. A 1" ARO is NOT the same thing as a 1" Sandpiper S1F. There are wide variances in efficiency and air requirements between the different pumps.
    I can run two of my twin pump modules for a total of 20 GPM open flow with 10 CFM. Same thing with a Sandpiper S1F takes about 25 CFM. Takes 16 CFM on a 1" Price.
    The diaphragm can also have a big impact on output. Running a Santoprene diaphragm will give you about 15-30% more output per CFM than a Teflon diaphragm.

    I am moving back to NC this coming Saturday so it is now time to start setting up my flat bed for the 2017 season... Looking forward to getting started with the right set up... !!!
  14. JetBlueRacer added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    That's good to know... Please correct me if I am wrong, but, does 1 CFM equal 1 GPM... ??? ( meaning at a 15.5 split... it would be rinsing at 15.5 gpm... / which is more than an 8 gpm pressure washer for rinsing... ???

    Nice Build!  Our Isuzu Flatbed was a wee bit underpowered carrying dual 500 gallon tanks when both tanks were full. That Proportioner makes it where all you have to carry is SH and soap/surfactant. 
    Nice job Lisa and Eric !
  17. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    Yeah we use 2 1in pumps 1 for applying chem and 1 for rinsing.. However you have to have a large air tank to rinse with a 1in pump. We could not rinse with out 20 cfm 10 gallon compressor because it ran out of air way to quick

    Welcome, and any info on Gutter Cleaning you can post will be a great addition to this forum. Bon Jovi  is from New Jersey, and so is Bruce Springsteen, did you clean their gutters  
  21. JerseyShoreGutterCleaning added a post in a topic The World's ONLY Manifoldness Roof Cleaning Specific Reels   

    are these hose reels still available ? how & where can i get one ? thanks 
  22. JetBlueRacer added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    Do you rinse and apply your solution at the same time from this new compressor... ???
    Basically split it would be 15.5 cfm to each pump... I personally like the idea of rinsing from a 1" pump and using only 1 source to push it if this is the case...
    Looks great Don... !!!

    Hi everybody, glad to be here. Im Tod Foltyn owner of Jersey Shore Gutter Cleaning LLC here in Toms River, NJ. We are adding roof washing & power washing to our services this year and im looking forward to being a part of this community. I hope to learn as much as possible from the experienced & knowledgeable veterans and i also hope i can add value and help others in any way possible in return.  
  24. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    We talked to Eaton and they strongly recommend  not to stack compressors and in our experience 20 CFM seems to be plenty 30 is almost over kill. However  we rinse with a 1 in pump and if you stack even the Eaton even tho they say not to 20 gallons of air is not enough to rinse with you just run out of air to fast. We also own the wheel barrow compressor from them it's plenty to push a 1 in pump we shoot 4 story building so for the new guys I dont think they need to get caught up in large cfm compressors. Just our opinion. 20 CFM per Eaton and Aro says 1 CFM is equal give or take to 1 GPM so 20 GPM is plenty with a 20cfm compressor. Now you wont get 20 GPM due to nozzle restriction or hose size.
  25. PeakOfPerfection added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    Ive been recommending their compressors for a while now. Great company to work with. US made. Killer warranty. 
    One thing you can do is stack the 20 CFM wheelbarrow compressors. Cheapest way to get 40 CFM. That is where the 1" pumps really wake up and start getting happy.
