  1. How often you find other businesses stealing your pictures or artwork?

    It's 48 hours already since I sent that guy an email. I may end up calling him instead. I don't mind sharing pictures to blogs, Wikipedia and so on, but this is the same type of business and it's just not right. I wonder if he also copied my work ethics and quality work...that wouldn't be bad lol
  2. How often do you find other businesses stealing your pictures or artwork? I found several websites that did that with my pictures. One even have html link attached, so it's linking back to my website when someone click on it. One company copied almost my whole website...What's wrong with people??? Is it that hard to take picture of your own project before and after?
  3. I bought new vrt3 unloader, and after first use I notice little bit of water just under the coil. It doesn't look like its a big leak it was just one big drop of water there. I never saw any leaks in this place before on my other unloaders.Is it a faulty one or some kind of normal condensation? Machine is mounted inside my van, so its pretty hot when engine is running, but I don't see any other leaky or sweaty spots anywhere on my plumbing.Any suggestions? Thanks!
  4. Winter activity-whats yours?

    Some remodeling - all new doors, trim, finishing ceiling in the garage... Riding on my mountain bike and gaining about 15 lbs at the same time... :)
  5. Another Armstrong Clark job.....

    Beth...you right... looks like I need more stain on this deck, and that's my point... It was looking amazing just for few weeks and then it started loosing color quickly. Bad batch? Maybe... Looks like I'm not alone with this problem. I'm testing all new "chemicals" on my decks before deciding if it's ok to use it on customers decks. Armstrong Clark stain failed this test, which was the first and the last one. Something like that never happen with other stains. I tested many of them and the only one which performed perfectly, in my opinion was TWP ( looking good 2-4 years with 3 on average ) and that's why I will stick to it.
  6. Another Armstrong Clark job.....

    I heard many good reviews about this brand, including many happy customers from California... I'm not saying this product is bad. It didn't peel off or cracked. It just lost its color almost completely in just 2 months. Wood is protected, water sits on the surface but color/pigment is gone. I used 1 heavy coat and everything soaked in after some time. There was no way to add second wet on wet coat same day. Everything looked perfect... at least for a few weeks. I will stick to TWP which works best for us here in MI.
  7. Another Armstrong Clark job.....

    Beth, Deck looks great! I have tried Armstrong Clark stain this season and I was really happy with appearance and how easy it was to apply, but after couple months stain faded almost completely on my deck. I used brush, on both, old and brand new addition. Both parts lost about 80% if not more of the color. On other hand TWP stains lasted looking good 3-4 years on the old deck before. I'm not sure what's the problem but I will not be offering Armstrong Clark stains for my customers next season.
  8. Oil and how often

    Vavoline makes SAE30 Non detergent. O'Reilly has it. If they don't have it on shelve - ask for it. Around $4-$5 per quart. Amsoil also makes SAE30 non detergent which can be used in pumps.
  9. Oil and how often

    5w-30, SAE30 and 10W-30 is recommended for small honda engines SAE30 non detergent, low foaming is recommended for most pumps.
  10. Chemical Reactivity Worksheet - Download

    Great software. Thanks Beth!
  11. Allison Super Suds Sucker manual ( 3-10 gallons )

    Ok .... GOT IT! Here is the problem... We have several different machines, different pumps and setups. When I got first Allison super sucker it came with short manual and all in pieces. I put it together and it worked for very short time and not very well. Second one arrived already assembled from Envirospec. Same issue ... not working. I fixed that today. Water was just going wrong direction... Everything works after switching quick connects. There was no arrows on it to show the right flow direction. Some pumps have female on the outlet and some have male. Envirospec manual doesn't explain that some pumps are assembled differently. We have Comet, AR and Cat pumps and all of them have female quick connects. Envirospec should add note about it in their Allison super sucker manuals. Looks like there is two standards... This down-streamer sucks - and I love it! :)
  12. Hi I'm heaving huge problems with Allison Super Suds Sucker. This is second unit and it just doesn't work at all. I have tried everything last year without any luck. This year I decided to play with it little more but I can't find "manual" for it. Does any of you have copy of it so it can be send via email? Thanks in advance!
  13. check your feet

    Check with different doctor. Some of them are like kids with toys ... they just love to do surgeries even if it's not really needed. Good luck
  14. chem injector problems

    I really hope that the problem was only with this SSS. If new one doesn't work I give up . I have checked everything - hoses, connections, pump, guns, nozzles , valve ... Everything looks, sounds and work like new ... I never had any problem with downstreamer other than not enough solution was sucked I will keep you posted if I got more grey hair or great suction with SSS :d
  15. chem injector problems

    There is many better distributors with better products and prices right here on TGS. I have several guns with different flow rates and different models / brands . I tested many few of them with SSS and I never got any suction. From time to time I used just ball valve to spray some solution but right now this doesn't work at all. I have great pressure and flow but no suction at all.
