  1. Nothing more fun than building your own system! What type of pump (air, 12 volt) and like Chris asked do you have any pictures? Tank sizes?
  2. I agree with Chris, sometimes the roof is so dirty that it's hard to tell where the rust starts and where it ends. Once the bacteria is gone you can easily see the extent of the rust. Obviously rinse very very well in between treatments.
  3. Another wash out here today, it's been a fun season with all this rain. At least it's feeding the roof algae lol
  4. Pat Clark has a product, look up "gutter Butter" on facebook. It has it's own product page. I know it's great for removing oxidation, most likely will have to be agitated a bit.
  5. That'll be awesome. Hose management will be key on this one!
  6. Good job, don't let the cheap guys bring your prices down.
  7. Never seen it, might be cool for rust removal or to dedicate for some purpose. I wouldn't use it for roof cleaning or house washing though.
  8. Its about an hour and fifteen minutes from Boston, Falmouth is located in Cape Cod. I'm personally about 15 mintues from there.
  9. A to Z Softwash recently cleaned this beautiful home in Falmouth Mass. We also cleaned the gutter faces, decks, deck furniture and siding. The roof was covered in mostly bacteria/ black streaks and lichen at the top. This customer knew who to call to get their cape cod area roof cleaned.
  10. A to Z Softwash is the most experienced roof cleaning company servicing Cape Cod, Southern mass, Rhode island, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. All roof are cleaned without using a pressure washer! Growths such as lichen, moss, fungi, bacteria and algae are on most roofs these days. The first growth that shows its ugly head is typically bacteria (black streaks). Once this growths takes hold it will colonize and spread rapidly. Just like every other living thing, as it eats it excretes waste. This waste product is a food for other things..... such as moss and lichen! That is why when you see lichen in Southern Mass and Cape Cod it is usually growing right on top of the bacteria. It's an Algae party and your roof was invited. The only appropriate course of action is to hire your local roof cleaning company in Massachusetts that uses the proper methods. Which is of course a non pressure cleaning using the detergents that the shingle manufacturers recommend. Pressure washing, roof scrubbing and low pressure are terms and things you need to watch out for as those methods will damage your shingles. Another tip would be for you to ask for a copy of there insurance policy to be sure that you will be covered if god forbid something does go wrong. Asphalt shingles and cedar shingle roofs are going to have a short lifespan if they aren't clean, this is a fact. Insurance companies are even making people clean their roofs more and more. They are doing this because algae is costing them money! I haven't even mentioned the fact that dirty roofs are (forgive me for saying it) ugly. Take a look at some of our work below to see for yourself.
  11. Welcome, I'm glad you seem to have gotten everything sorted.
  12. It could be anywhere from 8 to 1200 depending on whats on the back side lol. Looks like an easy one though
