I am not 100% sure. I know they sell a lot of different tools I always thought all of the high pressure bands were off a machine and not manually done.. Ill look into it and post my findings on this post because now you have me wondering about it!
I agree but when you were a admin or have a lot of your own personal post pinned to the top and then you only say the products you sell are the best or one sided point of view to get sales that's wrong and bad info and will not help the RCIA at all. If your a vendor then post when the other vendors do for the products. If the RCIA is all about creating sales then so be it.. I am just saying giving these guys info or view points on products you only sell is not un biased. You sell product A or B then great but dont say product cdefg are junk or not as good just because you dont sell it. That's all i am saying and there is not 1 other vendor that does this on this forum. If your going to be a vendor then post products you sell and that's that.. Its a fourm and if the info is miss leading then I think anyone should be able to speak up. In my opinion I feel like the new guys are just not getting info they are getting products that are funneled from the site info should be #1 sales should be #2 just my opinion.
Man I am just calling it how I see it. Ill keep it short because I don't want to start a pissing contest with you but your an admin and also a distributor whos pushing products only you sell and creating sales funnels. There are sales sections in the fourm that you can post to for vendors. The RCIA should be about learning and good quality info not a admin trying to sell products.
Kevin I am not trying to get in a pissing contest with you I am just saying we all know you sell price pumps but ive never really heard of them because they are a small company. When I called companies that have been selling price, husky and aro pumps every single one of them said they prefer the husky and aro over the price. Ive not used a price but on your website it says " With up to 50 GPM of flow and the ability to handle vertical head lifts of up to 250 ft. you can clean a 10 story building with a 20 CFM compressor. " If you look at that sentence you have a period after you says it can handle vertical head lifts up to 250 ft. THEN it says YOU can clean a 10 story building with a 20cfm compressor. Now that may just be shitty wording or shady marketing strategies but I am no newbie and with a new guy from the forum gets funneled into your website and reads price pumps are the best and you can clean 10 stories I mean what are the chances that they interpret that the wrong way.
Hey guys I made a video on how to put on hose clamps on yourself just how to hose suppliers do. This really gets the best fitting on your hoses ( much better than the cheap ones your screw on with a screw driver). Sometimes we go to hose suppliers but its easy and cheap to buy this tool and do it yourself for long term use its a must have for us. Check it out and make sure you subscribe if you like it
I strongly disagree the distance you get out of a price pump vs a husky vs an aro is so small its not funny. Ill post a video proving my point most of them shoot within 2 feet of one another. Tips are most likely your biggest issue as talked about before but there is NOTHING wrong with the pump you bought. Kevin I know you sell price pumps now but its not fair to bash every other pump just because you don't sell them and you only sell price. I understand wanting to make a sale but the husky is a fantastic pump so is ARO and price is a small company with a slightly different air setup it WILL NOT shoot 10 stories like you list on your website. If you talk to any distributor that sells both they will tell you buy husky over a price pump! Do your research talking to other people outside of vendors on this form that don't have a motive and get some unbiased answers. So to the guy that's having issues look at hose length and nozzle size but don't stress out man because you have a great pump and you just need to tweak a few things.
Kevin I've done my fair share of research and contracted about 4 distributors and they all say the 1050 husky is much better than the Price pumps (they sell both). All 4 of them agreed. I understand you sell these so to each his own but when I went to your website you list this " 1” Pump. Poly/Viton. $1595. This is the beast we recommend for customers who handle very large projects. With up to 50 GPM of flow and the ability to handle vertical head lifts of up to 250 ft. you can hit a 10 story building with a 20 CFM compressor. " There is no way on this earth you are reaching 10 stories or 250 FT with this 1 in pump. Hell a fire truck can hardly hit these distances so I don't understand why you are listing stuff like this unless its just to make sales off guys that just don't know any better. If I am wrong can you make a video with you hitting 10 stories or 250 feet? Thanks
Hey man how you have it set up is PERFECT IMO. That's how we run them on our trucks. What I will say is 3/4 hose you will notice a small difference but its not worth dragging it around for the small benefit. Here is my suggestions and keep it simple. 1. What size air line are you running should be 1/2 2. With your nozzle try different nozzles and see what you like and never use a gun always a 3/4 ball valve 3. On the Eaton Compressor your perfect running it at 90 PSI you can try it at 100 I forget the specs for the MAX PSI but I think we run ours at 100. WIth that being said without confusing you. The PSI You run is different than the tank PSI build up. For example your tank may build up 120 PSI then it reduces down to 90 PSI which it should. However the max PSI that tank can build up to is prob 150-170 ( 170 is the max for our big Eaton compressor) if you adjust that you will get more air rushing through your lines for more air flow your tank will drain quicker but you will get bigger burst. This is how air duct cleaning companies run their tanks. Talk to Tod at Eaton and he can explain to you how to do it and confirm what I am telling you so you dont think I am just making it up 4. How much hose are you running? Sometimes 300 Ft of hose coiled on a reel with slow down your flow and distance because of how far it has to travel. For example if you had 100 Ft of hose and tried it vs 300 ft of hose you would notice a big difference.
Hope that helps man just a few ideas before you have to dig into some bigger issues. But that's just my thoughts on your issues since we run the same set up on 1 of our trucks and don't have any issues. Please feel free to call me if you need help ill point you in the right direction. Also 3/4 hose is overkill and if someone says get a way bigger compressor I dont agree we have a really large compressor and the small Eaton one and you would be surprised and how little of a difference it made. Good luck man!
Hey guys we don't clean a ton of gutters but sometimes when we do roofs they ask us to clean the gutters. I made a review of a tool we use that rocks and its cheap. This is a must have check it out. If you buy it let them know Curb Appeal Pros sent you!
