    How much is the F9 and what is the dilution rate. Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Rust removal with F9 in Huntsville, AL

    I agree it can be dangerous. So can 12 percent bleach when placed in the hands of an idiot. We wear full protection when using it, eye- face - respiratory - skin. Being careful is the key with any chem application. Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Rust removal with F9 in Huntsville, AL

    That's what HF is, it takes rust off in about 7 seconds. 8-10 bucks a gallon and a gallon makes 5 gallons cleaning solution Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Rust removal with F9 in Huntsville, AL

    Oxalic acid works well and So does HF, both are really cheap to use Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks Chris, I hope that new contractors have learned that it doesn't take a huge amount of money, a goofy looking hat, and really expensive detergents to provide a roof cleaning service to their customers Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The same can be said about how one chooses to promote their product. How they choose to do it and what they say can greatly affect the response they get. I'm not happy either, we Still didn't get answers to legitimate questions. Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Why would you use a system that will last 12 to 24 years before rr cleaning (if it does as AC claims) . That means NO repeat business Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Not jealous at all. I have simply asked for supporting documentation and info regarding his product line. To simply take his word as gospel would not be fair to the customers I work for. Yet, I can't get an answer. Smart contract cleaners do their homework before they dump someone's detergents onto a customers property. To imply jealously is wrong... I will respond by asking you why we can't get a straight answer from AC to reasonable and appropriate questions. Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thank a soldier and remember our fallen. Happy Memorial Day!

  12. As cute as your post is, can you actually answer the questions that have been asked related to your products, longevity and evidence based research to support your statements. I trust your claims weren't made to prey on the newbie contractors who don't know the difference or don't know what to ask. You started this thread promoting your product. In doing so, you opened the door for critique, questions and evaluation. These are valid and appropriate questions. Please man up and provide honest answers. You have not answered one single question related to your product here, rather you have elected to attack some of the people asking them. You did manage to answer one question indirectly: Related to your post of you fishing 200 days a year and drawing a 250k salary, that explains the lousy net profit on 5 million gross.

  13. No Brian... Your not wrong... The bull ran through and left it waste deep Mathew Johnson Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 250k ?, that doesn't seem like a lot for 5 million gross - only 5 percent. Net profit of 15 percent doesn't seem real high for this type of business. Another question I have..... Do you guys use sodium hypochlorite when doing roofs and do you have any literature and third party research to support your claims related to biodegradable detergents and the claim on your products last so much longer. I may be interested in the soft wash, just need to do homework on it to make sure it is nothing more than a surfactant package dressed up in a prom dress mixed with bleach.

  15. I looked at the pictures posted in post number 10- That Mallard pic is impressive with lots of trucks. I looked at their website (very nice site by t. How come they dont promote the AC Softwash system, according to the website looks like they are using bleach and soap. Also the picture has several trucks without equipment on them. Did you have portable skids to put in them? I searched records with Florida Department of State, What years did you actually own that business? Just Curious
