  1. Ok. I do want the 1"poly pump. I'll have about 17cfm, hope thats enough. My Yamada is clicking loudly and there may be gunk in the pump. I took off my muffler and there is a combination of water gunk with oil from the compressor inside the muffler.
  2. We did a roof clean and house wash the other day. Asked the HO if he could leave a review on H.A. He was happy to until HA Made him sign up for thier services. He hit the cancel button, no review. I will give them a month, then I will demand my $ back, ha ha ya we'll see how that goes.
  3. I dont agree at all with what they say about roof cleaning. Im giving it a try. I know it takes time but week 1 no leads. All they want is to sell me services. Had a webinar on thier invoice services. Sell, sell, sell. They have been calling me for3 years and as recent as last week asking if I can take on more roof cleaning work and now nothing. Not making sense to me.
  4. It is possible that there is water in the system and I need a new muffler o4 I will take that one off to see if that helps. I have been wanting to get another pump possibly 3/4". Having only one pump is kinda risky. Will definitely get a air motor for the Yamada if thats the issue. Kevin, do you have any 3/4" pumps for sale?
  5. So last night I changes hoses over on my 2 reels. The o-ring on on my qc fitting had came out and I didnt realize it. When I put air to the pump, ya, SH everywhere. Pulled the air and put a new o-ring in. When I put some water thru the pump, it would pulsate like hell (never did before) and slow to a crawl. Compressor was on maybe 5 minutes. On the job today and it did the same thing plus it stalled a few times. Disconnected the air quick disconnect and plugged back in. Ran ok except the pulsating which wasnt all the time. I did notice clicking in the pump when spraying which I didnt notice before but I may have not payed that much attention to it since it was new 3 years ago. Any thoughts? 1/2" Yamada kynar NDP-15-FVT-ECO Very little moisture in air lines. Thanks
  6. So I've been thinking of joining Home advisor. After reading their comments on how a roof should be cleaned and the results obtained from said cleaning, I am having 2nd thoughts. Same with Angie's list. I provided a link to their comments below. What are people's views on this service? http://www.homeadvisor.com/cost/cleaning-services/clean-a-roof/?zip=03603
  7. I tried ball valves but I didnt particularly care for them. I usually do all my spraying off a ladder and I for one do not think it is safe to have to turn on and or turn off a ball valve when 2 stories high on a ladder. After spraying, ladders are slick and would rather have at least one hand on the ladder, unless harnessed. I use the bandit gun from Pressure Tek and it works great for me.
  8. Ive been thinking about getting one of these replacement pumps for my 5hp honda engine 9 gal contractor compressor. I do use an additional 11 gal air tank as a buffer. Specs show 17cfm@40psi and 15cfm@90 psi. To power my 1/2" Yamada. Should make it work just fine.
  9. This is why I use a generator. I keep it well away from the home although I only use it for rinsing with a water booster.
  10. Horses will be relocated for the day as well as the chickens. I plan to put up a temporary gutter on the chicken side and divert runoff. Chickens will be relocated also.
  11. Thanks guys for the advice. I think I will spray and let dry then rinse. I have disclosed to the owner that I use chlorine as with all my customers. I believe in being up front with them. To me, it builds trust and that is very important.
  12. I looked at an asphalt roof covering a horse barn. Grey shingles and they are quite black with GM. May need 2 coats. I am a little leary of using chlorine near horses. The roof is only about 40' long and I could set up temporary gutters and drain away from thier stomping grounds. I could dose the area with an ascorbic acid/water wash but like I read on another post, the salt is still there. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
  13. Ya its about 4 hours from me. Just a little too far. Sure, maybe if you are over in the New London area let me know.
  14. Is there anyone here near Greene Maine for an asphalt roof cleaning?
  15. I spoke with a technical advisor at Everbrite today I asked about Protectaclear and they suggest thier product Everbrite with a dull finish to seal patina. I think I will get a small container and experiment on patina'd things I have around the home.
  16. I have a large slate roof on a church to estimate soon for the springtime. It has copper ridges that has a beautiful patina. Is there any way to sel the patina to keep it looking that way? Maybe a dull polyurathane or something I can brush on. Thanks.
  17. I watched an online review of the Phantom 3 and it was amazing. It had built in gps that allowed the operator to push the copter in any direction while it was hovering and it went back to its original position to where it was before he pushed it. Obviously very stable in medium - high winds. Im not getting one of these (wish I was) but more of a beginners model with video.
  18. I have read that some of you use drones to inspect roofs. Which drone do you have and are you happy with it's results, being able to see the roofs condition?
