Be careful of low grade poly fittings. Fiberglass is mixed into the poly to add strength. It also gives it s shine. The fiberglass breaks down over time when exposed to SH. Go for SCH 80 PVC fittings....
I love the honest feedback!! Thank you so very much for posting! For those whom want to add a fragrance and don't want to buy a pre-mixed surfactant and fragrance, try out samples first direct from the manufacturer. Horizon, Chemia, Florachem and Nilum will send you free samples to try. You can add as much as you need for the job and gain control over your costs. Fragrance Link to Manufacturers
Hello RCIA! I thought I would post a quick pic of a custom softwash rig. This rig is compact. I apologize that I do not have more pictures. The customer drove to us and installed the equipment himself under the direction of our In House Pump Guru, Rex! The new softwasher chose a 1/2" 17 gpm All-Flo air diaphragm pump, 200' of 1/2" Flex Tech RT with crimped on hose ends stored on a full frame Titan hose reel, a crimped, non-collapsible suction hose assembly with a sleeve and slotted filter, crimped and cut to custom length jump hose to the reel from the pump, a very high quality SH gun with an assortment of nozzles for various applications. He has an 8 gpm 3500 psi cold pressure washer to use for rinsing after softwashing using large orifice nozzles,surface cleaning and of course, pressure washing. The tanks are 325 gallons and 125 gallons horizontal leg tanks secured by crimped coated stainless steel cable. The compressor is a BE air compressor. I apologize for not providing more pictures. I have many thousands of pics of custom rigs and am open to suggestions on setting up a gallery. Exciting Side Note!!!!! Thanks to our incredible customers, we have if been growing and are moving to a new location in Clearwater very shortly. Stay tuned for the official announcement!
For those whom are using the proportioners of all different makes and models, this Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant will work with that system. However, if you leave the top off the drum or cap off the container of super thick SLO MO, it will get thicker. Again, try only 8 ounces of less of Slo Mo per 100 gallons of recipe to avoid using too much. Use even less for housewashing.
Hello, RCIA Family! Spring is off to a great start....ooops, it is still Winter everywhere else. AODD pumps are not created equal. When you start off with great flow with the 1/2" All-Flo rated at 17 gpm at the pump wide open, one can gain greater distances.
All-Flo’s best selling features are as follows:
1. Fewest Moving Air Valve Distribution System Parts which results in ease of repair, less repair time, less parts resulting in reduced labor costs, inventoried parts as well as associated costs of maintaining an inventory of spare parts.
2. Typically, Improved Performance – higher flow, greater suction lift and improved efficiency. Yamada and ARO 1/2" pumps rate at right around only 14 gpm.
3. Best warranty in the industry, support available 24/7 and priced at competitive prices.
Pair this pump with 200-300' of Kuri Tec or Flex Tech RT using a minimum of 1/2" or even better 5/8" ID hose for the best distances and most efficient softwashing.

Great to hear from you!! It is actually cool here in Florida, today! Is that what Winter feels like?? The SLO Mo Softwash Surfactant is actually cheaper than Gain and Dawn and just about everything else. I calculated the SLO Mo to cost $0.88/100 gallon batch!!!!! (Plus shipping, usually between $18-32 depending on how rural an area the zip). For those whom truly need a fragrance and full control of the mix instead of paying a large price tag for a pre-mixed surfactant blend, contact one of the four SH stable fragrance manufacturers that will sell to you directly and send you free samples. Look forward to hearing from you!
Hello, Friends! For those of you whom need the long lengths of softwash hose in ONE CONTINUOUS LENGTH, PWP has the custom length up to 500' in Spiralite (Double Pass) Yellow Ag hose, Flex Tech RT Red, Blue and Yellow and in Kuri Tec Red and Blue. Long lengths are available in 3/8" ID to 1" ID. We can crimp on the hose ends for you and assemble a custom cut and crimped jump hose from your pump to your reel or to use to transfer chemical. Stay Warm up there in those chilly states! We are warm down here!
For those whom use surfactants specifically for SH, at least try SLO MO SOFTWASH Surfactant one time! We have only had positive feedback. You need only 4 ounces per 50 gallons of recipe or 8 ounces per 100 gallons of recipe. One 5 gallon bucket takes the place of 3-4 buckets of all other surfactants out there. If you truly need a SH stable fragrance, go to the manufacturer and stop paying someone else to mix it in with your soap. Go to Chemia, Horizon, Florachem or Nilum. They will send you free samples upon request.
