  2. Amazing work as always, Al!
  3. Gutter Zap stain on concrete?

    Did you get these rust stains out?
  4. First X-Jet job done...

    The X-Jet pulls via venture effect. You'll pull chems at 50% mixed at the tip. If you tried to get mine off the wand it's probably rusted on there and permanently attached... that's not from lack of use. It's from never taking it off!
  5. Have you ever seen one of these?

    Alan you're still around! Nice to see you again.
  6. In Case You Didn't Know

    I have been using their phone answering services for a few months now and love it! Its nice to have a live person answer the phone and all of my messages get sent immediately to either my email or via text message. Thanks for offering this service. Its a heck of a lot cheaper than having an office person.
  7. Yes, I am an avid golfer. I worked on a golf course for 7 years and became the Assistant Golf Course Superintendent. I also have had many other businesses and started power washing the golf carts and cleaning them at age 16. Upon moving to CA I applied to several golf courses and the bottom line was I needed to be bilingual to get a job so I went back to power washing full time (short version!). But other than golf, I was also a football quarterback (won 2 championships), baseball pitcher (4 championships), won the intercollegiate pool tournament, competed in high level wrestling, downhill ski racing etc.. so I love competing and getting better at things! So, back to F9...After a couple of years I realized that the golf cart stains were impossible to remove, which led me to find products to try to solve the problem. At the same time, one of my biggest accounts, Pulte Homes wanted me to clean all of their homes and concrete, plus do their acid washing and concrete coatings. This funded my venture into the concrete coatings and gave me the $ to do my own R and D on my own product to remove the battery stains. In the end what we came up with was a product that out performed everything I've ever used, so I quit using what I didn't needed and kept making my product better. Every job became a reformulation to make it better for the next. Along with F9 BARC, I have also completed mastered the art of acid washing. This is another art and something I would like to move forward with the F9 TEAM. We can take the worst looking slab of concrete and make it look like granite, then seal it to make it stay that way. There are different kinds of acid washing techniques and it'll need hands on training.
  8. Rust stain on painted brick

    Acids like HCL or HF not good for that. F9 will work. The only colored stuff we need to be careful of is poorly mixed colored concrete or pavers that are not strong. They use iron oxides in the mix that can get pulled out of the substrate hydrated too quickly. A weak bond between color and surface can be pulled out.
  9. Rust stain on painted brick

    F9 on that all the way. 1:2 ratio, barely mist it on.. call me if you need further help. Easy.
  10. Have you ever seen one of these?

    Dragging a hose full of water would not be fun! I've heard good things about the engine driven spinner bars though.
  11. Thank you guys. We have spent a long time to formulate a product that works as perfectly as possible without damaging the surfaces it's applied to. It feels good to have fellow contractors get the same great results we are accustomed to. Good job with F9!
  12. Driveway I Assume Rust spot

    Did you get this cleaned?
