  1. Keg Sprayer

    We have been doing it for years. Its really easy. PM me and I will get you some info that might be helpful.
  2. House Washing

    Hi All, I had a few questions for you wood guys since I am a hood cleaner. I want to PW my house and deck and need a little assistance. The house is cedar shingles and the deck is PT. I was planning on using sodium precarb, pressure washing then neutralizing. Can you soft wash effectively with Sodium precarb or will I have to lean on it? Should I use Oxalic or Citric acid to neturalize? What is a good neutralizing mixture for Sodium precarb? I know its not as Alkaline as the Sodium Hydroxide I use for the hoods. Any info would be helpful!! Thanks!!
  3. Van or trailer?

    We have tried both and found that the trailer can be difficult to manuever into tight spots. We purchased a Nissan NV 2500 van and it has worked well. It rides nice and is reasonably priced. Just make sure your can duct your steam cleaner and pressure washer out of the door or through the roof.
  4. The top rubber handles on my pepsi bottles came off. Anyone know the best way to re-glue the top back on? I just tried contact cement but I don't think it is going to work. Thanks!!
  5. Try using a marine thru hull fitting. You will have to play around with the gaskets if used on a circular barrel but they do work. You can then adapt to the fitting you want to use. Good Luck!!
  6. Hello Everyone, I am looking for a solution to dispense my Super Doug. We carry it in a 5 gallon pail now and pour directly into a sprayer. Has anyone tried putting it in small containers and if so have you had any success? Thanks, John
  7. Long Chinese Restaurant Hoods

    Not sure exactly what you me but here goes. Roll the plastic out leaving about 4' overhang on each side. Use a spatchelor and tuck the plastic between the hood and back wall and secure with cardboard or shim if there is a large gap. Next clamp the plastic from the sides to the middle. Remember to start clamping high on the sides and work your way around. Once you have a funnel set up, roll the remaining plastic together and clamp to a barrel. You may run into issues tarping as there are always obstructions. Good Luck!!
  8. Has anyone ever done it before? What are you using for your mix ratio? Thanks!!
  9. We use a 3/4" heater hose with a hose clamp too. Make the other end up to accept your waterline (quick connect, garden hose pipe thread, etc.). Its definitely the fastest way. Message me if you have any questions.
  10. Foaming question

    Mix the chemical really strong If using a foam cannon. The most important part of doing any Chinese job is to scrape first. The most powerful degreasers aren't going to cut through heavily built up Chinese grease. Get magnetic scraper of you dont already have one. It will save you a lot of time. Good Luck!!
  11. 1.5 x 12' x 200'. Shermin Williams around $22 per roll for bulk
  12. Has anyone come up with a good system for clearing out horizontal after scraping?
  13. Pressure Washer Supplies

    Great Info. Thanks everyone for your comments!!
  14. Just wondering where you guys are getting your supplies from. I am outfitting a new truck and was looking for good pricing on hoses, guns, etc. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
  15. pressure washer not starting

    Check the spark plug, put new gas in and make sure you battery is charged. Honda engines are excellent and unless there is a major issue they should start.
