Ok thanks. Now how can that injector be adjusted for a certain mixture? Tip size determine how much chemical? Some lightly mildewed siding should be good with close to a 1% solution where as some of these nasty looking houses may take 3%
Ok, I've got a few items that need to be purchased and I need some input as to what kind is recommended in the industry according to my specific application. One quick question also, what are the pros and cons of just applying chemicals to a hose using my roof cleaning air set up (not roof mix), vs using a chemical injector on my hot wash system and just running it out of a 5 gallon bucket. When I do siding. My set up right now that I'm needing parts for 4000psi, 5.2gpm hot wash system. I need the following suggestion brand or Model and best place to buy them cost wise that you recommend. - Pressure washer hose - Reel - unloader - gun - tips - Chem injector
The right fender and the trailer rail on the right side is rusted to hell because of SH. The wood on the right loops bad but is solid also. I would like to upgrade the gas and diesel tank but can't find them. I'm gonna paint the trailer and replace some fittings. Most all of this is original from 12 years ago. I'll post up a pic of the right side
That is on the table to go all in with it. I can go all in with it now and make sure it's profitable and a demand for it in my area. No way I'd quit guaranteed money to have to end up slashing prices and begging for work because the mortgage is due. If I have 40 properties that have to be done this week mowing, and we are having 2 days of rain, this is a major kink in things. Before you know it, you are so far behind and it takes a while to get caught up. No way the roof cleaning and house washing is in the same category. You can wash houses or roofs after a rain. My mowers will mess up a nicely sodded yard after a rain. Some times in Georgia, we can't even get going until 10 or so am because of so much dew. It creates a huge mess sometime. If this takes off in the next year or two like I would like it to, and I can afford to do this as my only source of income, I'll go for it
Now that I have your attention, is like to share what I've aquired. I plan on doing roof and house washing. yesterday, I found this hot wash system, trailer, and tank on Craigslist. The pump needs to be replaced from what the guy said. I have also found that pumps can be rebuilt. I found a new one for 423 shipped. Anyhow, I got all of this for $800 bucks. 16hp vanguard, 5.2 gpm, 4000psi, 325 gal tank. It doesn't have a hose or wand with it. I would like to see a pic of your set up for roof and house washing combo on a trailer or in a trailer. I'm gonna have to get a bigger trailer though. The rig is 12 years old. It was used as a side money thing.
I will asap. I'm narrowing down my business name for roof and exterior cleaning service. When I do that, I'll get a website together. Anyone on here do that real reasonable. I did www.alcbarnesville.com myself through Vista print but I'd like something else more customizable with more neat graphics.
I'm a premium member now. Talked with Garyw for a little while on the phone last night. Peakofperfection, I read a detailed post of yours earlier from 2014 about building a set up with real life prices, I'm interested also in what you are talking about as far as an alternative to what I was wanting to get. I'll start hanging around in the premium member section for more specifics on things.
I'll pull the trigger on the premium membership in the next week or so. I've got some specifics that I'd like to go over. I hope some of you guys do pressure washing or soft washing so you can answer a few I'd of those questions too. I think I signed up on the pressure washing web page a couple years ago. Never really went there much though. I can't contribute much info on here right now but if you have any lawn care questions, let me know lol. Especially Bermuda grass. That's my favorite. Easy to control weeds and I do that as well
I'm going to keep it, just not keep up with the amount of work. I'll keep enough to do by myself. Around here, seems like druggie, drunks, and people without license are the only ones who will do this type of work. I have one person that is dependable 90% of the time and he is trying to get disability and 33 years old. In just as good of shape as anyone on here. People just want to get in the handout line. I'm fine with doing one roof per month starting out. I make way too much money working my night job and have good insurance to just quit. I'm over 30hr there, no thanks. I'll milk it. It allows myself and the other 6 guys that work there to have a lot of free time. I chose to start my own business instead of watching judge Judy and the wheel of fortune all day.
