    Thank you! I will contact you soon.

    Ok thank you! In your opinion for typical residential roof washing would the 9 gpm unit be adequate? 17gpm seems almost like it wuld be overkill for someone just starting out with a 6x10 trailer and a 225gal tank.

    Will this run the 17gpm pump from PWP or just their 9gpm? https://www.harborfreight.com/9-gal-212cc-135-psi-wheelbarrow-air-compressor-epa-iii-69783.html
  4. I'm hoping I can get some solid advice on where to, and what to set up on my 6x10 open trailer. I have attached pictures of what I have so far. Pretty much everything except the actual machines. I screwed up and bought a hose reel for my buffer tank fill hose that was for a 3/8 connection. I will have to scrap that reel and purchase one that has a 5/8 or 1/2 adaptors. The other hose reel is also a 3/8" and I will be using that for my 8gpm cold pressure washing unit. I jumped the gun and foolishly installed the buffer tank and bolted it down in a bad place so I will have to take that out and recenter it to be sure that all water weight will be evenly distributed. No big deal. I have already plumbed the tank with banjo fittings, and a hudson float valve assembly. I will use a non collapsable hose for the PW intake, coming off the hard plumbing. I guess I just need some direction here, maybe some constructive criticism. I really have one chance to get this right and I just want to be sure I nail it. I'm absolutely open to removing, moving, or adding anything that you all think I need to make this happen. I would like to add a transfer assembly, and a proportioner to this set up as well if it will fit within my budget. My focus will be on residential roof cleaning, House washing, and flat work (driveways, sidewalks, patios, decks, fences, pool areas, etc.) I am working with a local pool supply place to get my SH from. Its 12.5% at 1.75 a gallon but I have to purchase 4 55 gallon drums at a time to do it. I'm also looking into contacting my local water treatment facility to possibly piggy back off of there delivery, but im unsure how that would work. I spoke with Lori a long time ago and she was quite helpful on the phone. I'm hoping maybe PWP has some input as well. Thanks and I appreciate any input.

    I used to think gigantic tenderloin sandwiches were a normal thing everywhere lol. If it isn't 10x the size of the bun it's not a tenderloin sammich!

    Thank you! I will be buying a soft wash system, one of your 8gpm machines, and few other odds n ends sometime in February. Look forward to speaking with you soon. Your reputation is golden everywhere I have seen online.
  7. Hi PWP. I initially wanted to purchase a transfer assembly to make life easier, but I have seen a lot of people switching to proportioned systems. Do you offer that option? I saw one company that was selling them for a ridiculous amount of $1,200...I believe it was called "the pro-portioner". Do you have anything a bit more competitively priced lol.
  8. Sounds like a worthy investment. Thank you
  9. Hello, I am going to be putting together my first softwash/pressure washing rig to use this Spring. I am in need of guidance to help me strategically place the components (and which ones)on my 6x12 single axle trailer. I realize that space and options will be greatly limited with this trailer, but this is my first build and I just need to get started. I can expand later to something bigger. My question now is do I need to have a premium membership to ask for this kind of help here in the forums? Thanks-Jesse

    Hello all. My name is Jesse, I am from Northern Indiana, and an aspiring soft wash/pressure washing entrepreneur. I have done a lot of reading/research over the past year, as I have saved towards purchasing my first set up. I started by buying a 6x12 single axle trailer, 225 gal buffer tank, two reels/hose. I am now ready for the last phase which is to buy the actual 8gpm pressure washer, and a soft wash unit. Admittedly I am completely green to this industry, but I gotta start somewhere. This forum has been a godsend to me to help fill in the blanks in my continued research. I intend on becoming a member soon so that I can access the premium content to help me get started in my journey. PS-I tried to complete the "about me" as best I could, but my logo, and number still need updated/tweeked a bit. I have reserved my url but still need to build the actual site. Thanks, and I look forward to getting to know and learn from all of you.
