  1. The X-Jet debate

    Had to go back to the x-jet last week when my chemical injector went bad. My crew has never used the x-jet we've always down streamed. They were crying the blues about carrying the jug around. Alos the M-5 don't get the height or distance that the origional x-jet (which I also had on the truck) or the down stream does. We're back in business now with down steaming and the crew is much happier. But the now know that just because one way don't work there is always options.
  2. I might have missed the location and time but could you give it to me again. I'm gettin old and a little slow. I can't go to the one in PA but I'd like to attend this one. Thanks Howard 301-904-6258

  9. Owners' Manual for the parents of teenaged daughters

    I'm LMAO. I remember this so well. Had a teenage step daughter and a teenage son at the same time. They were two years apart with her being older. Hard to tell which one was worse. I think as they grew older each one tried to out do the other. But I do remember the showers, towels, clothes ect.... However she did get a job and bought most of her own smell good stuff. But, her mother uses the smell good as well so they swapped at times. But like all things it will pass. She is now 28 married no children of her own yet! My son is also married with two his own and 3 step children at 26 (there is a GOD) . I just sit back a smile everytime he starts talking about what has happened......... Being PAPAP is alot easier and loads more fun than being DAD ever was......... as the doctor said "relax this won't hurt a bit" LOL......
  10. What would you do

    Just to update. Went by and looked at the customers plants. He had new spring growth coming out. Plants that were suppose to flower were doing so. New growth on the bushes. In short the only thing I saw was on the back side of some of the evergreen bushes (that never see sun against the deck) there was some browning. Told him I say nothing wrong he seemed to agree. However, I took loads of pictures just in case he tries to come back later in the srping/summer. Thanks everyone for your inputs. Ken Not too complex, it works for me down here. have no problem killing Mold/mildew. If the house has excessive mold build-up then I add more SH.
  11. Last evening I got a call from a customer telling me that the cleaning solution I used to clean his house is killing his plants. Now I as well as others here have had that happen before so nothing new. Well in this case I washed his home the 23rd of March 25 days ago and he is just now calling me. Since I washed his home we have had freezing temps, warm-ups to the 70's 3/4 inches of heavy snow/rain and just this past weekend a noreaster that carried 60kt winds with over 3 to 6 inches of rain. Now he calls and says the plants around the house are dieing, but everything else in other parts of the yard are alright. I will be going to take a look at the plants in question but my thoughts are I had nothing to do with his plants dieing. Now for my cleaning mix, I've posted the receipt on here before but here it is again. 1.5 gal 12% 2 gal crita clean (from Sunbrite) 1/2 cup cascade 3/4 cup liquid tide (foaming) 1 cup jomax 1 cup liquid deck cleaner. fill 5 gal container with warm water then downstream. Thanks for giving me your thoughts.

Not sure how to do this poll I checked the box but here are my thoughts. 1. Let him know how sorry I am his plants are dieing but I'm not responsible 2. Point out the elasped time since the wash (BPW not responsible) 3. extreme weather is responsible (BPW not responsible) 4. in interest of customer satisifaction offer partial refund to buy new plants. 5. Other Thanks for giving me your thoughts on this.
  13. Dawn & windows

    I've been using Cascade for years without any problems. I use about a 1/2 cup in a 5 gal mix. How much Dawn do you use? About the same ratio?
  14. Thank you to our TGS Site Supporters!

    Thank you Beth and Rod. Oh and Happy New Year to you guys as well. I know I've said it before but Thanks for this BB and for what you've done to help not just me but others.
