  1. Today I got a message on my instagram account from True Clean, a roof cleaning company put of West Palm Beach. They stated that they have "zero pressure" federally trademarked and told me to remove all references of it from my photos or they will have lawyers serve paperwork. I'm not going to comply, and I'll wait on the legal papers, but this is beyond ridiculous. They trademarked it in March of this year and I (and all of us) have been using "zero pressure" as a descriptive term for many years now. There is a good chance they can't defend their trademark in court since it is a generic and descriptive term, and if it really came down to it, someone could go further and have their trademark invalidated. I'm just giving you guys a head's up and you may want to spread the word on social media. Enough negative attention and these patent trolls may just pull their heads out of their asses.
  2. Looks great man. Nothing better than a functional efficient rig. Hard work pays off.
  3. Lol I bet man. I have to say we have doubled our income this year already and a majority of it is from expanding with the roof cleaning. It definitely has a market around here and we aren't even putting a dent in the dirt roofs around Polk County . Most of our roofs are shingle roofs and anywhere from 2000 sq ft to 3000 Sq ft . Which is fine with me at the moment due to the fact that we need to upgrade a few things to accommodate some bigger roofs and what not. Chris we still need to get together and have lunch one day. Maybe when the season slows up a little.
  4. Haven't gone anywhere just been busy haven't posted in a while lol. But I'm not complaining that's for sure. Hope everyone is staying hydrated, good lord it's hot out there. Especially on a roof top. Looks like everyone is doing well and staying busy and I'm happy to see that.
  5. It has been a while since we have posted on here. How is our fellow roof cleaners doing this year? Hope everyone is doing well.
  6. Thanks guys. Now that the holidays are over its time to get back to work. Ready for some more roofs.
  7. Chris, We probably rinsed more like the bottom half of the roof lol. It was our first tile roof so we were taking precautions. But I was happy with it and I'm not easy to please . The owner was even happier so it turned out good. Thank you for that last minute advice over the phone man. Your input is always greatly appreciated.
  8. About 3400sf. It was a bright 85 degree day. Tile roof kinda had us worried, but it came out great. Luckily it was easy to walk and a 40% mix did really well on the tiles. The only trouble areas were the grouted ridge caps.
  9. All the above advice is great and I would take it all in and go about it the best way it works for you. However we are new to the "roof cleaning" and what we did was buy the pump in a box setup from Bob at pressuretek.com . It comes with a 5.6 gpm dc electric pump already wired up in a box with a second box for a battery, 200 ft of poly hose and most of all the hardware to plumb it. All you have to do is buy a stainless hose reel , a battery and a chemical tank. Its certainly not the best thing on the market but its inexpensive and it gets you on the roofs and making money. There is always opportunity for upgrades . But atleast that gets you started and allows you to see for yourself what further steps you want to take to upgrade. That's what we are doing anyway .
  10. Chris our Titan hose is stainless manifold.and has a pvc core that the hose rolls up on. Our local dealer ordered it from Titan this way.
  11. Yeah they got their panties in a wad didnt they? But you know if the competition wants to spend money on the miracle juice then at that point they are either pricing jobs higher to accomidate that stuff into the cost of the job. Or they arent bringing home as much profit. Doesnt seem like much but every little bit counts. We will continue to show up clean roofs the way we have been taught from people that have years of hard evidence experience. Not trying to toot Chris's horn to much . lol but the man washes roofs everyday in Tampa with million dollar homes all over the place with very expensive landscaping. He's been in the business how long? We work full time for a multi-billion dollar company . That is debt free and turning billion dollar profits every year. I watch them take the easy cheapest route daily on things and still keep customer satisfaction at the top of the priority list with very few complaints. My point is you show up you wash the roof you use the hell out of the free water that is there and go home with the same results as the other guy buying into the fertilizer. Except you bring home more money because your not out spending money on experiments. lol This forum is great . I really enjoy you guys on here and it feels like family. Im not losing any sleep over the PWI guys that started their period about the matter.
  12. I don't fault the guy for finding a niche and making money. However; I'm a hardline skeptic. If you tell me something is true, or works or exists, you had better have proof to back it up. Not "I think" or "My buddy says" or "I'm not real sure." I want hard evidence before I spend my money on something that logically just doesn't make any sense. We are inundated with products constantly that make all kinds of claims and cures, and a good number of them (in ANY market) are 100% bogus. I really didn't mean to start a "war" over this product, but here's what was funny to me; If you can provide proof that something works, you won't get bent out of shape when people question it.
