I have done some pressure washing on the side for the past few years. I am ready to take it full time with a buddy of mine and want to build a system. Is there someone that can provide me with a full list of materials and solutions to get me up an running? 

I plan on doing mostly houses/fences/decks until I get going decent.  Then will move to add roofs in the mix.

thanks in advance.

Hello Guys, Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa here  :)

If you lived here in Florida, you would know we have been softwashing down here for many many years!

A "softwash system" is what we have been using to chemically clean roofs and exteriors w/o pressure washing, for many years.

In this forum, you will learn how to build your very own softwash systems, and how to roll your own softwashing chemicals.

There is no need to buy expensive,, pre fabricated softwash skids, when you can easily build your very own softwash system.

You do not need  questionable, and very expensive softwash chemicals for your systems.

Before you buy any ready made Softwash System, or "training", post any and all your soft wash cleaning questions here, so we may help you build your own system, and do it yourself.

Great Job!  Thank you, Chris, for opening the conversation.  Too often, I have the chance to help others that have paid many thousands on 'junk that was never manufactured for use with any soft wash chemicals.

A lot of members use this nozzle for spraying roof mix. It is guaranteed for life and will increase your shooting distance on most rigs if set up correctly. They are pricey (around $50.00), but well worth it. They go from closed to totally  open in 1/2 turn. NO more changing tips aloft, and dropping them.

I wonder how well they would work using a Yamada 1/2" pump with an Eaton 9 h.p. 20 cfm air compressor... with 5/8" chem line... ???

I like the idea using one nozzle if at all possible... Thumbs up if it works... !!!

Old thread, but it looks like I'll be keeping it alive for now, lol.

I'm looking into putting together a small softwash system. I'd like to use my existing compressor, which is a rolair 9hp 175psi 20cfm unit, and just buy an air diaphragm system that I can plug my airline into and go. I saw the Outlaw-Mini and it seemed to be exactly what I'm looking for, but it also did not seem like it was getting a lot of distance. I'm not necessarily looking for a big $4k setup at the moment, as the season for this line of work is closing soon in my region (Illinois), but I do have existing customers that I have done other work for inquire about this service and they are looking to have it done soon so I figured I'll get something small started now and build it bigger for next year if it's not enough. Thoughts?

Welcome Steve! 

That Rol Air is a good compressor, and will power a 1/2 to 3/4 inch pump just fine. A pump made out of Kynar has several advantages over one made from Poly, but costs more. Poly can be used, but needs to be rinsed out right away, Kynar never needs to be rinsed. Plus, Kynar is UV Resistant, and Poly is not.
