No New Posts Dual Delavans ( 1 2 3 4 57 )
There is a very fine line when operating Dual Delavans I tried multiple combinations of hose size, length, nozzles, guns and figured out the best combination for running one or two pumps together in tandem. I talked to Bob with Pressure Tek at the NC round table and he says that the 5850 Delavans are no l...

No New Posts Fatboy bandit complete setup or 5800 complete setup?
Going to buy on Monday and just wanted your opinions, please.  I like the idea of the bandit complete setup with the reel and better hose included.  Looks like everything is set up, including the electrical system, clamps, coplings, etc.  I am not all that crazy about the 200ft. poly braided hose with...

No New Posts 12 Volt Pumps (Preview)

Guys, here is a great BASIC accounting program for free. It is a Microsoft product, and they have a pro version for $199. but the express version is free and all one needs to run a ROOF CLEANING business. I used an older 2008 version and it is very nice, especially for the price . This should help some of the...

No New Posts Pulling from two tanks
I run the Delavan 5850 5.3 gpm pump with a 55 gal tank. I also have a 225 gal water tank on my trailer. I was wondering if I could have a t before the pump with one line coming from the 55 gal chemical and the other from the 225 gal water tank, if the two would be a 50/50 mix and be too strong of a solution. Basicall...

No New Posts Armor All Your PP ??
LOL Yes - RCIA is suggesting YOU "Armor All Your PP" It is a GOOD idea to put Armor All on your Polyproplyne pump parts ? Polyproplyne is effected by the UV rays of the Sun. Armor All protects dashboards = so .... it looks like a good idea ? This idea is NOT mine. I got it from another thread here at RCIA. http:/...

No New Posts 5850 for now
I have read all the posts here concerning the 5850 and the fatboy.  They have both at the local Rural King.  5850 is $129, fatboy is $229.  So, I believe for now I will get the 5850 because: 1.  $100 cheaper and finances are tight starting out 2.  I am only going to be running one hose for now. 3.  Until I get s...

No New Posts Rinsing question?
I have read all about the suggestions for rinsing but I have one question that maybe would be a better way of doing this. My idea is to get started with a 5 gallon bucket and add the stuff they sell at the pet stores to eliminate chlorine from the water and run that through the pump and hose thus rinsing and nu...

No New Posts Pulling from the top. ( 1 2 )
As a confessed former bottom dweller, I now pull from the top. Who else pulls from the top of their tank. Tucker told me to do this and once I started, I was amazed. the flow is so much better and more consistent.
