  1. Apple Roof Cleaning (813) 655-8777


    We cleaned a red concrete tile roof this week. It rained and there is now red stain on the patio. The homeowner said he tried a power washer on it but it is still stained. Does it really wash away after a few rains? How do we get it off?

    If it was a clay tile roof, it will eventually rinse off, with the rain. We have never had to power wash it off before.

    You can use Flexzilla hose with a water booster if you add a bypass to your water booster. So when you arent spraying, the water just runs in circles. The bypass eliminates too much pressure build up when the pump is running. Ive used a bypass for 3 years on the same Flexzilla hose.

    How does the bypass work?

    Moderator: I'm not sure if this is the right spot to list this. Please feel free to relocate this thread if necessary.

    For sale is a Honda GX390 with an Udor 5.5 GPM (gear drive) pump, set up for tank bypass (Zeromatic unloader).

    I purchased it as a 4 GPM direct drive in 2014 and installed the 5.5 GPM gear drive in 2015.

    The engine has 125 hours on it, and the pump has less than 75.

    This pump has been stored in a heated garage since I upgraded to 8 GPM last year. I used it last November for approximately 2 hours, but it hasn't seen any use since then. 

    Asking $1200.00 or best offer.

    Local pick-up only.

    (Asheville, NC)

    Please PM me for more info.

  5. I am not gonna cast judgement Dave, but here is how it works. The better Northern Tool 12 volt Pumps have an optional low` cost add on warranty. They offer immediate in store replacement, for NON COMMERCIAL USE.

    So, people are buying them, and the extra warranty under their real names, and when they fail, they simply rinse them well, and say they failed pumping water in their RV :) 

    I know several who have not bought a new pump in several years :) 

    But everyone who has used them have remarked at how much longer they last, compared to other 12 volt pumps, because of their unique pressure switch !!!!

     

    I've heard that before Chris. I don't cast judgement either but God does. What those individuals are doing is dishonest and in essence stealing.


  6. "The top of the line 12 volt pumps from Northern Tool have a unique way of dealing with the pump cycling on and off, have you ever considered them ?"

    No I have not considered them. As of now I have only used the Fatboy. I will look into Northern Tool. Thanks.

  7. Guys, I have been using the FloJet accumulator tank from day one. It works OK and does occasionally need to be replaced. The ports seem to be a maintenance issue. The fittings need to be replaced each year and the ports themselves seem to wear and begin to leak. Does anyone have this issue? What are your thoughts on the stainless steel accumulator shown below?

    Starting out I was taught to use an accumulator to reduce cycling of the pump thus extending the life of the pump motor. I find the pump head almost always goes out before the motor. Do you believe the accumulator truly makes a significant difference or not really?

    Since we only use air pumps Dave, I am afraid I am not much help. However, you might contact member Al Gigliotti, who has made his own accumulator!  It is important to remember that Stainless Steel is NOT SH Proof, and only has a C or average resistance to the SH. Without being able to examine and compare the inner parts of both units, it is hard to say if this one will have any benefit for you.

  9. In case I'm not on the forum tomorrow, I wish everyone now a Happy Independence Day! I also which to encourage everyone to please take a moment to remind your children and grandchildren about America's exceptionalism and the significance of Independence Day. Remind them about the sacrifices made to create this nation and preserve our freedoms. Tell them about America's "values statement." It can be found in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence: 

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. . ."

    God bless America.
