    You can get Plasti-dip by the gallon, but only in black, I believe. I forget where I saw it, but you should be able to find it in a google search.

    I It sure would be nice to view all the stuff in the old forum. I signed up last month, i called Gary a number of times talked to him and sent him a bunch of messages. For some reason i still can not view premium area. I hope my membership is extended next year because of this problem. It seems like somone else should be in charge of that forum. At least someone that is going to follow up on things. 
  4. Atlas1 added a post in a topic How to run a 12 volt roof cleaning pump w/o a battery!   

    For anyone who's considering trying this setup, I just got an email from the manufacturer of these power supplies that all you need is a 6 amp, 120 volt power source. So a very small generator would be more than sufficient for this!
    Also, he said to be sure you put a screen over your vent holes (if you use a box to waterproof it) as bugs can and will short it out. He said that heat build-up in a box would not be a problem as long as there are vent holes in the bottom.

    I want to coat my new diamond plate flatbed before I place any equipment / solutions on it... What poly matting are you talking about... ???
    I am also thinking about building a skid that I can place on top of my flatbed to eliminate holes... Possibly even tie down with ratchet straps... It would be nice to take all of the equipment off if I ever needed too... Most importantly I want to make sure my flatbed does not get destroyed...
    I have noticed Plasti-dip but that only looks like it comes in a spray... I would like to control by rolling versus spraying in the wind... Looking for something quick, easy and effective... !!!

    so its a GREAT product I used it on my truck.. Side note SH eats thru it in a heart beat so if your thinking of putting it on the floor or your trailer dont do it..We use these poly mats i was telling you about.

    VERY interesting. I'm assuming that, if you run this with a generator, the generator would have to be capable of producing 30 amps. Is that correct?
    Also, is it possible to use this to charge your battery and power your pump at the same time? (In case you have to use your battery as a back up)
  9. Atlas1 added a post in a topic Improving The Fat Boy Roof Cleaning Pump !   

    Hi all! I'm getting my winter maintenance/upgrade list prepared and I'd really like to try out the "hot water accumulator upgrade", but all the tanks I've seen say that they have a polypropylene bladder (which is what the SH would be contacting directly) with a butyl diaphragm. Do you think the polypropylene would hold up on? (I ALWAYS rinse with 20-30 gallons of water after EVERY job)
    Thank you!

    Introducing the OutLaw JR. World's Smallest Air Diaphragm Pump System!
    A lot of you have waited for our original Outlaw pump system. Well, that morphed into two different products after getting a LOT of feedback from you guys. The first is the Outlaw Gas Powered Skid Series system which can be found in a post elsewhere on this board.
    The second is the new Outlaw JR. This is an ultra compact, hand carry air diaphragm pump system. Designed initially as a deck sprayer, mold mitigation sprayer, concrete or fence spray system...it is actually surprisingly good for roof cleaning! This system includes a small, ultra quiet portable hand carry electric air compressor with a 7 GPM Air Diaphragm Pump mounted on it. This little beastie gets nearly 40 ft of reach, and can be tossed into a truck bed, trunk or a tiny little trailer. It is so efficient that you could run TWO of them off a single good 15 amp circuit or a small generator. 
    This makes an ideal starter system for the small beginning contractor...a Pressure washing contractor who wants to dip their toe into roof cleaning who can use it for other things...or as a backup for your primary roof cleaning system. 
    Right now we have an introductory price of $449 plus shipping. To order, please call me at 360-410-9902. Orders will ship in mid to late January. Price will go up to $499 at the beginning of the year so get your orders in now!

  12. PeakOfPerfection added a post in a topic Introducing the Outlaw Twin Air Diaphragm Pump Skid   

    This is NOT the Outlaw Skid system. It is actually the new Outlaw JR system! It is a mini pump system designed for deck spraying, fencing, concrete and rust remover...and yes it WILL do roofs as well since it has a 7 GPM Air Diaphragm pump. The compressor is electric and will run off of any 15 amp domestic circuit. Introductory price is $449. I'm selling the heck out of them!

    nope just the air system.. The PW is 10GPM but for the big box truck we have the eaton 30cfm air compressor our smaller rig has the 9HP eaton. Anyways a general rule of thumb is you get 1 GPM per CFM so my large air system is around 30GPM VS my PW which is 10 GPM. Its a general rule its not exactly 30 GPM but you get the point its close to it..
  14. JetBlueRacer added a post in a topic Yamada 1/2" NDP-15FPT + 5.5 HP/ 9.3CFM Air Compressor   

    Do you wet the plant life with the 10 gpm and then use the roof system to softwash afterwards... ???
  15. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Yamada 1/2" NDP-15FPT + 5.5 HP/ 9.3CFM Air Compressor   

    see we have a 10 GPM pressure washer and a 1in air setup and I only use the PW for concrete everything else is the low pressure system.. 
  16. JetBlueRacer added a post in a topic Yamada 1/2" NDP-15FPT + 5.5 HP/ 9.3CFM Air Compressor   

    Also, my roof cleaning system will be seperate from my PW services... 8 gpm machine will do all house washing / PW ...

    I am keeping my system... KISS version... No sense trying to reinvent simple... Thumbs up... !!!
    I bought a dedicated new rig and I will focus on branding... The physical work is the easy part... Branding takes time but is also enjoyable... 
    Will show you pics along the way...

    Just dont overthink it.. Its VERY VERY VERY easy to fall into the specs trap or overthink it but when you dumb it down its really quite simple...
  19. JetBlueRacer added a post in a topic Yamada 1/2" NDP-15FPT + 5.5 HP/ 9.3CFM Air Compressor   

    Sounds great... Been following and learning from this awesome forum for over a year... Great group of guys and knowledge... Priceless... !!!
  20. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Yamada 1/2" NDP-15FPT + 5.5 HP/ 9.3CFM Air Compressor   

    no problem I am happy to help.. If you have more questions feel free to PM us. Also this is a great group of guys and a lot are very knowledgeable so your in good hands. Let us know if we can help!
    Also when you call Eaton make sure you order more compressor oil when you order its only under warranty if you use their oil so buy it. Also the filters for that compressor there are 3 air filters they are 5 bucks each so maybe think about ordering another set while your at it.
  21. JetBlueRacer added a post in a topic Yamada 1/2" NDP-15FPT + 5.5 HP/ 9.3CFM Air Compressor   

    Super... I like the size and weight as well... My new flat bed measures 9 feet by 7'8"... Really excited to getting her fitted right after New Years ... Thank you for your reply... !!!
  22. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Yamada 1/2" NDP-15FPT + 5.5 HP/ 9.3CFM Air Compressor   

    We have a 1in  Pump with the 9 HP eaton pull start and its more than you need.. The pull start is really easy 1 pull and your done its not worth the money to upgrade save your money and spend it on something else. IMO I would do the eaton over the HF just because of the warranty and its a honda. The only thing good about the HF is you have 30 gallons of air vs 10 gallons with the eaton. However it does not matter its more than enough air we still hit 3 stories all day long no issues and the compressor can keep up.. So for your 1/2 its way overkill for a 1in its just enough to do a great job.

    We have used the big 30 gallon HF Air Compressor 6 days a week for nearly 4 years now, doing 2 to 4 roofs a day, and some pretty large commercial roof cleaning jobs, pretty much w/o any major incidents. The recoils have failed, as well as the electric starter motors, but this is normal wear and tear. 
    I have never tried the Eatons, but know several who swear by them.

    So which one would be your pick Kevin if I could handle the weight... ???
    The Eaton 9 H.P. with electric start or the HF 30 gallon... ???
    This would be to run a 1/2" Yamada pump... Keep in mind a 1" upgrade may happen if need be down the line, but, starting off with the 1/2" which I had already purchased...
    Anyone elses thoughts would be appreciated as well...
    Thank you... !!!
