  1. I was asked to speak at CETA & ISSA convention!

    congrats beth.
  2. You think my customer was happy today??

    That F9 stuff is amazing. Great job man.
  3. I actually use an hourly rate, however mine is a bit more complex than just saying I charge X amount per hour. I charge by how long it's going to take me, how far the place is, how much fuel and detergents are going to cost, and then do my hourly rate. If a job is really dirty then I know I'm going to be there a long time and will price it accordingly. I factor in everything when quoting at an hourly rate. I will say that I've never had a customer ask how much I charge per hour, but I don't think I would have a problem discussing with them my rates, As long as they understand that every customer has a different price because they all want different things.
  4. TGS roll call-- check in here

  5. Check out the new member on TGS.

    Goodness gracious........
  6. Hydro Tek Hot Water Trailer

    Not to shabby and looks in good condition. If I had 6 grand I might actually buy it for a backup or something. This would be great trailer for someone wanting to get in the business with-out dropping a butt load of money.
  7. Official TGS 2013 Fall Hunting thread.

    I heard Fried turkey is the best. Maybe one year I'll fry one.
  8. Big EIFS job

    I've heard of window washers diluting it 50/50 or less when using it for hard water stain on windows. I have always used full strength when doing windows, just never tried OneResore on these sorts of stains before. Maybe next time I have the chance to test it, I will. I'll try the pump up sprayer 1st before x-jetting it. Yeah, I wasn't too sure about adding it to the house wash mix or not either. If I do X-jet it as a test I'll probably do it as dilution 50/50 and see what happens if the pump up test goes well first.
  9. Official TGS 2013 Fall Hunting thread.

    Pretty cool story Rick. My dad isn't a gun person and the only time I ever shot a gun was with my sisters X-boyfriend when I was 13 years old and we were shooting cans. So not much fo hunter, lol. But I often have thought about trying it out. Just don't know if I would be able to pull the trigger and don't know anyone around my area that hunts as well that I could go with and see if it's for me. But I've always been interested in archering so if I did go deer hunting I would really like to try that route.
  10. Official TGS 2013 Fall Hunting thread.

    He's three and a half, not really sure he is of age. But what do you guys think? He'll be four in January and been thinking of getting him and I fishing poles for Xmas this year.
  11. Big EIFS job

    I have OneRestore in my trailer now, but I use that on windows only and do it through a pump up sprayer. Would X-jetting a dilution of OneRestore to the building work? And then what about adding a bit one OneRestore to a house wash mix and X-jetting that on the building? If you or anyone else hasn't tried this method and if I wanted to test it out what precautions would I need to take before doing this?
  12. PPE (Building wash)

    Face shield would be good for me cause I where glasses. Thanks Doug, never even crossed my mind about face shields.
  13. PPE (Building wash)

    I was afraid of that... maybe I'll do building washes in the winter and concrete in the summer. lol. What about a colorful umbrella hat?? Of course that won't work since I wouldn't be able to see. lol.
  14. PPE (Building wash)

    Those who have xjet and shoot bleach up 30 feet what kind of PPE do you use to protect yourself? I tested out my Xjet the other day with just water and noticed that because of wind I got some of the spray that came down. I have protective glasses and a full rain suit. But to be honest it gets a little to hot and I don't really where it that much. But If I'm using bleach or other chemicals should I start? Also what about PPE for face (other the eye protection) and hair should I get if needed?
