  1. Dammit. I'll host them on my website if Chris can edit and re-link the images. Been out of the online game for some time now after some personal and health issues.
  2. I've put a number of beginners into our Outlaw-Mini or Outlaw-Jr. Air Diaphragm pump systems starting at $399. Just add a hose, tank and a little air compressor and you are cleaning. Expandable for more output in the future just by putting on a bigger compressor and more pumps.
  3. INTRODUCING...The New Outlaw Mini. Our Version of a "Pump in a Box". We've hinted about this one for a long time and some of you have even placed orders sight unseen. We just picked up the first enclosures today, will be making some slight modifications to the design. But...I promised a lot of guys we'd have something today. So...here is the deal. A 5 Gallon Per Minute air diaphragm pump, capable of spraying nearly any chemical from hydrochloric acid to Sodium Hydroxide. Coatings, stains, acids, etc. A Pump System that can run off a $99 plug in air compressor and for those with existing air diaphragm systems, can plug right into the compressor on your truck. A System that can run as much as 200 ft of 1/2" spray hose...so YES, it CAN spray a roof. Or Fence. Or Deck, or siding. Or PAVER SEALER. Or stain. Or fungicide. Or Oxalic acid. As long as the viscosity is close to water, it will spray it. A System that has complete nozzle flexibility. Can spray a large 050 nozzle or soap nozzle for tons of volume...but can throttle back to as small as an 005 nozzle for fine mist application. No more massive overspray when doing decks or fences. YOU select the nozzle flow and pattern you need...not what works only with the pump. Can run in stall mode all day long with zero penalty. A System that is self cooled. It literally cannot overheat because compressed air is cold. A System that costs $35 to replace the diaphragms on, can be serviced in 20 minutes with a flathead and a philips screwdriver. A System that measures a mere 9 inches, by 7 inches by 6 inches...and comes with a carrying handle. A System with a replaceable pump that can be changed in 10 minutes on the job site should the need arise. A System that needs a mere 1/4" air line to run it instead of towing 1/2" spray lines across your customer's property. All of this...For one easy payment of only $399 plus shipping. Available for pre-orders now. Shipping in 3 weeks. Demo videos are coming. TO PRE-ORDER, PLEASE GO TO OUR PRE-ORDER PAGE. http://cleaningpumps.com/outlaw-mini-pre-order-form.html
  4. Then you made money. That is all that counts.
  5. I've talked a lot to customers about the advantages of being able to dual spray. Here is a perfect example of a project where this capability is ideal I booked an entire street of Townhomes. 41000 square ft of roof with the road running right down the middle. Mostly low pitch single story. And this is EXACTLY the type of project that this kind of capability will make all the difference on. I'm going to set our flatbed up with an Outlaw-D twin pump skid running twin spray hoses. We'll literally drive up the street doing the roofs on both sides simultaneously. Two crewmen on the roof. One applying SH, a second following behind rinsing. I'll hire two ground crew to ground crew and rinse down the plants/etc. A trailer will be set up behind the truck with an air transfer system to transfer SH into the onboard SH storage tank. We have a 20 GPM Udor rinse pump that can drive two hoses simultaneously that will provide the rinsing action. Doing this, I believe we can have all the roofs cleaned in a single day.
  6. The Outlaw-C has made quite a splash in the industry. At a mere 22 inches on a side, you get the reliability, material savings and flexibility of an air diaphragm pump, redundancy of having two pumps onboard, higher output and more distance than any electric 12 volt pump, an American Built compressor with a Honda Gas engine, and unparalleled technical support. All starting at $1299. Pound per pound and cubic foot per cubic foot, nothing will out clean an Outlaw-C http://cleaningpumps.com/outlaw-c.html
  7. $900 to $1100 depending on how much moss there is. $225 for safety anchors.
  8. We have likewise switched to Flexzilla and it is holding up beautifully. Starting to see fluorescent green in pictures from other contractors in the industry as well. And yes, it IS available in 3/4".
  9. I've written a ton of posts without any specific product reference. Had a LOT of guys thank me for the posts and a lot of calls and emails on plumbing, tanks setups, system builds and nearly every sticky in the Premium forum. If people object to those, then I'll ask Chris to take them down. I probably get 30-50 calls and messages a week with guys looking for help with builds. It isn't unual for me to stay up to midnight helping some guy trying to diagnose a build problem so he can be on the job site the next morning. Some end up buying from me, some build their own, some go a different route. As a vendor member, I make no bones about what I feel are the best products, but that comes from time and experience in actually running a multi truck cleaning operation and rebuilding hundreds of pumps, not to mention over 30 complete systems for different customers in 3 different countries and 5 different states. I dare say i've had more AODD pumps through my hands than anybody in the industry and have learned a thing or two about them. A lot of the things I recommend and have turned the industry on to like the Eaton Compressors and the Tsunami Water separators, neither of which I make one red cent on. I don't make a dime on the sealed tank system design that is helping guys avoid the corrosion issues that have plagued the industry for years. I've also helped countless guys diagnose 12 volt issues, plumbing issues, air issues, hose issues, reel issues. Ive put probably thousands of hours into helping people with builds. A lot of those hours don't result in sales, but I actually enjoy it. If it isn't appreciated or wanted, so be it. I'll delete the stickied articles you find offensive. Chris will inform me it is time to fuck off. I've got better things to do than to get into a pissing contest here.
  10. Seriously? It does VERTICAL LIFTS to 10 stories with a 20 CFM compressor. And I'll put it up again a 1050 with a 20 CFM compressor any day of the week. Bring it. If you have a personal issue with me, take it private.
  11. If you bothered to READ the website, I never claim the Price will SHOOT 10 stories. No 1" pump will do that. What I say is that it will LIFT FLUID 10 Stories and it will do so with far less CFM than most other competing pumps. It is an alternative to our Flojet pumps which are great, but are limited in head pressure capability. Think that doesn't make any difference? My client who just cleaned a 10 story hospital in Kentucky and my client who cleans 15-20 story buildings in Vancouver will tend to disagree. The Price is more efficient with a low air supply than any other pump I've used and tested and the statement on the Husky 1050 comes from experience with that pump. It it not that it is a bad pump, it is just a pump that requires a lot of air to really wake up. That is real world experience. We tried it. On our truck and in our test rig and then and there decided it wasn't our favorite pump because it needed more air supply than most people had. Sold it to a guy who had a 30 CFM comp and he is perfectly happy with it. I've actually used them ALL on rigs. I've sprayed with the Husky (1040, 1050), ARO (Pro and Expert series), Wilden, Versamatic, Sandpiper, Yamada and Price. I consider the ARO to be a better pump than the Husky any day of the week, and the Price is beyond that in terms of build quality, longevity and efficiency.
  12. Listen to your Son! Come to the Dark Side. Here is your answer...one pull and you are spraying. More distance, but capable of FAR less flow (want to put a 1/2 PM mist nozzle on it? no problem!). No batteries. Just add fuel from time to time (it sips fuel) and change the oil occasionally. Outlaw-C. World's smallest Gas Powered Air Diaphragm Pump system. 10 GPM, dual pump system. Honda Engine. American Built. 22" cube. I have one guy in FL hitting 60 ft with his. YMMV. Outlaw-C Pump System.
  13. The 3/4" pump is off the menu for the time being. I noticed some discrepancies in the specs and contacted them. They discovered I was right and the specification are NOT conrrect. I had a meeting with the VP of Price last week and he apologizes. They completely missed the errors over the last decade and if you look at their website, the pump specs are currently not there as they re-test. So...for anybody looking at a 3/4" Price, I can currently sell the 1" Price in Poly for the SAME COST. And yes, the specs on that pump ARE correct. This is a smoking deal. They also said you cannot stall their pumps. A 1" Pump with a 2.5 CFM air compressor will prove that this coming week.
  14. Try a shooter nozzle. That will give you a more laminar flow and will get you more distance. Honestly, you may get 50 ft out of an electric, but it won't be very effective at that distance. Thing is, your 1" pump isn't very efficient. So the amount of output it has is going to be limited by the CFM you purchased. That is endemic to that particular pump. If you had bought a Price Pump, you would be getting more distance, but the cost is higher. That being said, as compared to 12V, the reliability is off the chart better. Plus...try putting a fine mist nozzle on there and pumping...you can't do that with an electric. You can spray with an 010 or 020 nozzle, saving material and reducing run off. Once you run Air for a while, you'll never go back. As for the Eaton, I probably have 40 of them out in the field that I've recommended to guys and literally have had zero problems with the ones I run and have installed. I had one guy with a defective head and he had a new one from Eaton the next morning. You can always call Matt Cain, the president if you are having issues and my experience is that the few times there were issues, they had solutions nearly immediately. Try that with any other compressor company. Also, I'm assuming you are running a water Separator system.
  15. You'll see it as soon as UPS delivers Gorilla Reel's new Fat Gorilla model made in response to needing bigger reels for bigger/longer hoses. I should have the first two off the production line next week.
  16. I've had a ton of experience with guys stalling 1" pump with icing. I probably took 30-40 calls and emails on pump icing and stalling issues last summer in all different size ranges. The higher the amount of CFM, the more water you will make. Simple physics. Depending on the pump air end design, you can definitely run into icing and stalling issues. 1" pumps run high CFM's and every mfg will tell you to run clean, DRY air into your pump. Also, putting a smaller nozzle on may give you more distance...or it may give you LESS. It depends on the pump and the efficiency curve. The smaller the restriction is, the more the head pressure will rise. The higher the head pressure rises, the more CFM you require to overcome that pressure. At some point the flow starts to decrease. You may not have enough air to maintain the output flow and the pump may even even stall.
  17. Try a bigger nozzle. You may be putting too much head pressure on it with a dinky little 020 nozzle and actually limiting the flow. Put an 040 or an 060 zero degree. If you take the nozzle out and you get nearly the same distance running with just an open quick connect...bingo. That much restriction cranks the head pressure way up and drops the output GPM and you don't have enough air to run high head pressures on a 1050. You can run an 020 but not necessarily for distance. The Husky 1050 isn't my favorite pump which i why I never sold any. They soak up a TON of air. Unlike the earlier 1040, the 1050 is a DEFU pump made in China. If you look at the curve on them, not the best curve in the world. They like a LOT of air. The 5/8" hose...does it have 1/2" or 3/4" end fittings...you want 3/4". If you want a 1" pump that will retain the output with that CFM at high head pressures then nothing is better than the 1" Price.
  18. if you use the sealed tank system dewign with external fills, there is no need for any special coatings.
  19. Sure. You *Could start out with an Outlaw-B and the compressor with your current 1/2" hose and see how it sprays. If you hit what you need to hit with the higher output, you are golden. If it is *juuust* enough, then upgrade to 5/8" hose and be happy. All you'd need is the ubiquitous Harbor Freight Gas Wheelbarrow compressor, $499 at any Harbor Freight location near you and a few bolts for the frame. If it turns you you need more, just add a second pump...it is already for it. Add your 3/4" hose. Lori at PWP carries the Flextech hose, that is my choice in the larger hose sizes. Good stuff. Will run about $360 for 200'. Reel...for the big hose, I'd go Hannay. It ain't cheap but it is the right reel to handle the big stuff. You got to figure about $900 for a big manifoldness Hannay chem reel. Yeah, painful I know, but that reel will last a LONG LONG time. What I'd do then is to plumb the system so that you can run one pumps through the 1/2" hose for smaller roofs and when you get the big tall monsters, switch a connector or a valve, bring on the twins and the big hose and spray the bejeezus out of it. I designed the systems to be expandable and flexible this way.
  20. $2495. That is what I consider a Lifetime pump. Buy it once and done.
  21. The 1" is available in Kynar. The 3/4" is only available in Poly. That being said, the Poly they use is rated for 20% SH and it is pretty thick. You'll likely get a lot of years out of it before it becomes a problem.
  22. Flexzilla 3/4" is an option. We've been using their 5/8 on one of our trucks for the season and it works great.
  23. I have a customer in Canada who just cleaned 13,000 sq ft of apartment complex roof with a Price 1" pump I sold him. On a single 20 CFM compressor it took him 1/2 an hour. His comment is that he only had the ball valve open 1/2 way the entire time on an 020 nozzle. THAT is called productivity! It is what a higher output pump brings to the game...lots of flow and distance when you *need* it and low flow rates when you don't.
  24. For several years now I've been recommending and using the square stacking sealed design Tote A Lube tanks in my rigs. The design solves a tremendous number of problems in the mobile cleaning industry. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. Fluidall has made a decision to switch to molded in stainless steel outputs in all their tanks. Despite numerous discussions, there is no way to make the tanks work for chemical transport in our industry. I've exhausted all options with Fluidall and can no longer recommend or sell them for chemical transport. I believe it is short sighted on their part to ignore a very significantly sized marketplace which was just starting to take hold. I am searching for an alternative that is reliable and well constructed. Meantime, I am purchasing the remaining NOS supplies with the plastic output ports from a large distributor, so if a Tote A Lube tank was what you have specified in your build, contact me for pricing.
