House wash / 3+ stories from the ground

Recommended Posts

There were a couple of clowns on one of those FB groups that mentioned ladders for house washing.  I mentioned that we do 3+ stories from the ground and they scoffed.  Rather than educate 'em, I just moved on.  With little to no wind today, I saw the stream go easily 8-10' passed the gutter line on this 3 story home  This was with a plain old 8GPM belt drive machine and a 'shooter tip' at the gun.  No wand!.  Can't wait until my custom made injector-bypass system is ready, then we'll get even more distance!

You're not climbing ladders to house wash are you?  :-)

It's amazing how far you can shoot the chem mix with the right equipment. Using a small 4gpm belt drive machine and with a slight breeze, I was able to shoot the mix all the way to the top of the end peaks of a 3 story brick home. It was actually going beyond the top of the peaks with the auto throttle set at 3/4 throttle.

Hey Ted, I  haven't tried one yet. On one of my trigger guns I have a 4" brass extension  then the quick coupler for the J-Rod. I run a sleuth of J-Rods with nozzles  ranging from 10's for low pressure cleaning through 40's for low/high pressure cleaning. Simply choose the J-Rod which best suits the task at hand and let the juice fly....

I do plan on purchasing a shooter tip though!

At about $20 each, I think that they're a good value for the money.  I'll use them from now on.

A friend and I have a custom shop making something for us that might just be very beneficial as well.  More on that once we have them in hand and have beta-tested the prototypes.
