    Here is proof look at the model number and look at the green on the pump. Search the model number and you will see its PTFE/TEFLON

    Thanks Kevin
    Few things I agree its better to rinse a poly pump it will last longer just like rinsing everything but you DON't HAVE to rinse it however its always better to. As far as what you said about the green and clear gaskets. This model number 6661AJ-3EB-C is the one with the Santoprene Diaphragm . When I look at my pump with the "clear" gasket that model number matches the pump. With model number  6661AJ-344-C matched to my pump with the " green" gasket this is the PTFE Diaphragm. So Maybe they switched it from last time you looked? I am not sure but how it was said was correct in the video I would be happy to try and take a picture tomorrow. But per my pumps and model numbers they match up with the colors...

  4. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic High Volume Chem Transfer - ideas??   

    so we are going thru this right now.. They order the tank for us and it has a catch basin as well. They said they would rather us not request a fitting towards the bottom but they will do it. The main reason they dont want to do it is if it leaks its a pain however they maintain the the tank so if it leaks they fix it.. We are using the pool pump. We use to get 300G totes and they had a 2in ball valve at the bottom and a top draw. We used the pool pump for that also but when you draw from the top you still have to prime the pump every single time. We just told them to make the port at the bottom and we will deal with it... I know that does not help you in your situation but maybe buy a cheap HF Compressor and a ebay cheap pump and transfer it that way.. Your price is still under 1k and its pretty easy to do

    We replaced all our pumps already I mean the last thing I want to do is pay shipping on a pump and then have to pay for it to be rebuild again and then shipping back. It was fully rebuilt the 1st time and it crapped out. As far as parts being available I went to 3 different local pump companies that all do repairs and they sell that brand of pump. They said the pump is so old that its hard to find the right parts for it they suggested trying ebay for universal off brand parts since the pump was over 10 years old. So I am just saying a cheap ebay pump would last 9 months like this one but at a fraction of the cost. I mean our new ARO pumps brand new with Teflon ended up being like 100 dollars more than our 10 year old rebuilt kynar pump.
  8. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic High Volume Chem Transfer - ideas??   

    The reason I said the cheap ebay pumps is because we got a rebuild Kynar pump from you and it lasted 8 months before it started leaking like crazy and I think we paid 799 for it and now every local shop says its to old to get parts for so now its a paper weight. So the cheap ebay pumps are not kynar that's for sure but they will last 1 year so I can go 3 years of buying new pumps vs 1 year. That's all I was saying  On our rigs we now run new ARO pumps with Teflon and they are fantastic but for chem transfer I am all about cheap options like pool pumps, cheap knock off pumps, or even gravity feeding it however that's not the fastest option out there.
  9. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic High Volume Chem Transfer - ideas??   

    man just buy a cheap 1 in pump off ebay that's new and save money just rinse it use your air compressor on your rig to pump its you don't have to buy another compressor to run it... Your only transferring chem so why drop so much money to transfer that's just our opinion.  We now to mini bulk and have a valve at the bottom of our 100 gallon tank and suck it out from the bottom its fast easy and cheap.. If you want to spend a lot of money I am sure you can find a easy solution.

    Imo run away fast... I've heard it works for some guys but overall I feel like it's a big scam.  Just our thoughts tho.  They route traffic thought home advisors and not your website so it does not help your seo plus your paying like 10 bucks or whatever per lead and a lead is a phone number no guarantee you even get a hold of them.. only way to know is try... We talked to a guy who dropped like 10k plus a year on leads and made like 40k from them alone which is great but I dont think that's the case in most situations

    Titan reels for sale ( we bought to many) Whoops
    Hey guys we bought 4 titan hose reels and only ended up needing 2 whoops. Anyways we have 2 brand new 22in Titan hose reels with a stacking kit. These are the biggest reels Titan makes. Anyways we are selling them for $575.00 Total plus shipping. This includes 2 22in reels and 1 stacking kit. Please give us a call, text, or msg if you want them or know anyone that wants them. These are great pressure washing reels or water hose reels. You can use them for chem and if you rinse they hold up pretty good but for the price you cant beat it.
    I only want to see this as a set thanks guys. Please pass on if you know someone building a rig.
    PS they look small in the picture but its how it was taken these are really pretty big they fit 300 FT of 3/4  ( i think it could be 250 I don't recall) or 500 FT of 5/8 pressure wash hose

    I know you sell them I was just saying that you don't have to go through a "dealer" and you can order right from Gorilla and save a lot of money. Same with Hannay reel you can call them and tell them what you need and they ship it right to you. I am just saying if they are not buying your system then its cheaper for most people just to call the manufactures directly to cut cost. Just like Eley hose they  ship to consumers so there is no point contacting a dealer and paying the mark up. The only way I would see it would add value is if lets say the companies don't offer direct shipping to customers and then your forced to go through a dealer.

  17. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    I agree to a certain point. Hose size and length of hose matters on how much flow and distance you will get. 20 CFM may be on the low side for a 1in pump however it's plenty enough power to use with a 1 in pump. For example 1 truck has a 20cfm air compressor and it shoots over 3 stories using our 1in pump  so saying you need over 20 CFM is not entirely true. He'll 60 CFM would be a beast however it's not needed or a must have. As far as a Santoprene pump giving you up to 30% more output I am going to have to disagree.  I am not sure how the difference In material would be less effective when it comes to flow or distance.  In front of me  I have 2 new ARO pumps 1 is Teflon and 1 is Santoprene and they are both rated at 53 GPM. I went over the data sheets and and I could not find 1 thing that suggest my Santoprene pump has more output power than my Teflon pump. I guess this is were it comes down to personal opinion but I just wanted to clear up this info for any new guys reading this that you don't need a 30 or 60 CFM compressor to run a 1 in pump or to have it do a good job. We clean 2 story houses with walkout basements all day with our 20cfm compressor and new pumps such as my ARO are a lot more efficient that a 10 to 20 year old pump..
    Last thing as far as the GPM is equal to CFM rule.. if you contact any pump manufacture they will tell you 1 CFM is generally equal to 1 GPM but yes some factors come into play like nozzle size,  hose size, what pump you have but I can tell you that for our systems rinsing with our 1 in pump is by far superior than rinsing with our 10 GPM pressure washer..
  18. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    Yeah we use 2 1in pumps 1 for applying chem and 1 for rinsing.. However you have to have a large air tank to rinse with a 1in pump. We could not rinse with out 20 cfm 10 gallon compressor because it ran out of air way to quick
  19. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    We talked to Eaton and they strongly recommend  not to stack compressors and in our experience 20 CFM seems to be plenty 30 is almost over kill. However  we rinse with a 1 in pump and if you stack even the Eaton even tho they say not to 20 gallons of air is not enough to rinse with you just run out of air to fast. We also own the wheel barrow compressor from them it's plenty to push a 1 in pump we shoot 4 story building so for the new guys I dont think they need to get caught up in large cfm compressors. Just our opinion. 20 CFM per Eaton and Aro says 1 CFM is equal give or take to 1 GPM so 20 GPM is plenty with a 20cfm compressor. Now you wont get 20 GPM due to nozzle restriction or hose size.
  20. Curb Appeal Pros LLC added a post in a topic Eaton Air Compressor review 31 CFM   

    Hey Chris its like 700 LB heavy nothing 1 guys cant lift right? JK! We have another Eaton Compressor its a smaller one but anytime there is an issue they just send us the parts so Id imagine it would be that same. For example lets say the compressor cracks.. I would imagine they would just send us another compressor ( not motor or tank) Our old compressor we had a bad pressure regulator and they just mailed us a new one. We also had some ball valves so bad when draining 1 of the tanks and they just mail it.. They seem to have great customer service Ill let you know if we ever manage to break it!

    Hey guys since I got over 30 request ill just list the info you need on here. Before you contact read this entire message and just don't jump to calling.
    1st off you can design the shirts your self, go thru a designer, or the t shirt company will design it for you. DO NOT go through the t shirt company they are not the brightest crayon in the box. Also if you are a UAMCC member and you get the logo on their shirts you get a big discount I think its like 20% or so we are members and we put the logo on our shirt please see the back of the shirt for reference. We also paid the designer to create the design of the shirts and then he will send all the files to the t shirt company. 
    So who designed my shirts? KBK Graphx his name is Keith and this is his website. http://www.kbkdesign.com/  Let him know Don from Curb Appeal Pros sent you!
    Who made my shirts? E3 http://e3sport.com/index.php   ( they are not on top of it so plan on a little back and forth with them) The website you go to custom shirts they have templates at the very bottom you can choose from and then you can tell them where you want the words and you can create you own design that way but its limited. There is another company called All About Promotions his name is Jim his website is http://www.promobiz.biz/ also let him know we sent you!
    Jim at promo biz is on top of it with FANTASTIC customer service however with him you have to over a min of 10 shirts I think VS E3 you can order 1 or 100..
    I hope this helps you guys if you have questions plz feel free to msg me or call I don't mind helping. ill do a review of the shirts on our youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZXhqD80UTr1iqHX9JhrP0w  so make sure you SUB and you can see when we post it. We also review a lot of products so check it out.

    its 100% poly synthetic and they back it i 100% if it bleaches out they will make a new one so its like free insurance. Polo's are around 50 so are stand up collars.. T shirts are a little cheaper I think.
