  2. Hi. I have been on pressure washing forums for over 20 years. I started out on the old delco board when it was just a very long thread. There was so much activity and so many people posting all the time. I really loved to interact on the forums and learn and bounce things off of fellow contractors. In the past few years the forums have really started to wain and less and less people are posting. I know the answer. Everyone is on facebook. Their are tons of groups and a lot of the people that used to post on the forums, are now regulars on the facebook groups, myself included. I for one am not really that thrilled with this development. If you are somebody that came up using the forums, facebook can be a nasty place sometimes. I have decided to start posting on forums again and try to get off of facebook. Maybe other people will get sick of the BS and follow suit. Also Beth. Since I was last here I changed the name of my company. Can you tell me how to change that in my profile?

  7. Almost time to wear long pants! 67 here this morning, going to clean a pool enclosure.
  8. How long of a hose can I use

    Use the smallest orifice you can find. I use a 2-3 gpm injector on my 5.5 gpm machine and can draw soap with 350 feet. If you have to, you can put the injector midway in between hoses, with a bucket.
  9. Your biggest gripe about the cold weather?

    Yeah when t hits 54 degrees it really aggravates me, not sure if I should wear shorts or not. Oh sometimes it gets around freezing for a few minutes around 4 am. BRRR. Good thing I' m usually in bed then....Sorry, having lived in the northeast my whole life, I just have to rub it in. I feel your pain, then I did something about it!
  10. Would appreciate some opinions

    Yes you need a buffer tank, 2500 psi is enough power to do any residential cleaning. The only thing I ever use pressure on is concrete, and anything over 2500 starts to remove the cream coat. All other applications are 1000 psi (rinsing nozzle) or less. Most of the time I use my soaping nozzle to rinse which is a couple of hundred psi. Also working without insurance is not a good idea, when It seems you are hell bent on using high pressure.
  11. Would appreciate some opinions

    $1300 could definitely get you a craigslist special( at least 4 gpm and 2500-3500 psi) and a hammerhead surface cleaner(northern tool), hoses and whatever else you would need. Cleaning a driveway with a wand is like mowing a lawn with a weed whacker.
  12. X-Jet and 8.25 household bleach

    You say you have been cleaning houses for 12 years, just curious as to why you are using a 4 gpm machine?
  13. Interesting job

    You can get a 16 foot ladder that is three sections and is 6 feet long at Home Depot if that will help you.
