  9. Gave a quote today to clean the roof of a very large church. $7500.00. Church is probably valued over $15m.
  10. Need Advice!

    First off, never ever use a pressure washer on a roof unless you want to totally destroy it. A soft wash set up is very simple and can be built for under $500.00 and will deliver excellent results safely.Start out with a 12v electric pump and graduate to an air system in the future. Delvan fat boys are under $200.00. Garden hose and a nozzle and you'rer all set.
  11. Air pump setup diagram

    the top pic shows the chemical out and the place where your muffler screws in. You can run without a muffler if you don't have one. Just be noiser than with one.
  12. Electric Compressor

    ​Most electric air compressors draw a pretty heavy load. Most outdoor plugs at houses are 15-20 amp circuits.The chances of a breaker kicking are pretty good. What happens when you kick the breaker and the H/O isn't home and the freezer/refrigator is on the same circuit?? ($$$$)...Think about the conq1uences.
  13. No hype to if, if you use a good size air pump and not a toy size been thru all the 12v and most are junk after 6 months of use. Got over 3yrs of use on my1" ARO.
  14. sodium hypochlorite

    Check the manufacture date. it will stay pretty fresh for about 30 days if kept cool. You will use about 20-25 gals for the 75-80 gal solution, so you will use it up fairly quick.
  15. HELP HELP!!!

    Sounds like a suction leak somewhere. Do you have a injection control that is turned on??
