12 Volt Chemically Resistant Roof Cleaning Pumps
Permalink  
 


There are several brands of 12 volt, chemically resistant roof cleaning pumps.
Here is a Shurflo 100 PSI 1.8 GPM pump http://www.shurflo.com/pages/new_industrial/Industrial/gen
_industrial/genind_doc_sum/8000-543-138.html

This pump has been a long time�favorite of Florida Tile Roof Cleaners.
It's relatively low flow and high 100 PSI presure allows a fine "misting" of tile roof cleaning chemicals, avoiding run off problems.
The 100 PSI allows it to shoot better then the 60 PSI or 45 PSI Shurflo's.

How much time do you usually get out of this pump?

Depends on how many roof you do in a day, in a week, if you rinse it, and how long you use it w/o giving it a rest ?

NO pump is forever with roof cleaning chemicals.
I got a4 to6 months out of these pumps, doing 3 roofs a day, 1 tile and 2 shingles on average.

Yeah Donny, if a pump costs 125 dollars, and you get 6 months, doing 2 roofs a week, you are ahead of the curve!

when you talk about rinsing, do you just hook up to plain water? Second when you say it lasts 6 months at that point is it beyond rebuild?

Excellent advise on trying to have at least 2 pumps. Nothing is worse than baking out in the sun Cleaning a Roof and your pump goes south. I have my Comet Pump which runs off a 5.5 Honda and I also have a FlowJet pump settup and a Back-up for that one. ALWAYS Rinse out your Roof Cleaning pumps!!!!!
