APPLE CIDER SAUCE

Like Apple says, it's easier without mixing TSP.

But if you see a severely neglected roof that looks extremely hideous, using TSP will greatly enhance your mix, helping it clean better and will give your customer's roof a longer lasting job.

I always pre-mix my TSP in a 5 gallon bucket of hot water.

Buy a large funnel and pour the 5 gallons of pre-mixed dissolved TSP solution into your drum with the bleach and water.

Wait until you get to the job site before adding your dawn/alcohol.

Use a PVC pipe to stir it around.


Or you can start by filling your drum with hot water and pour the TSP in with your funnel and stir it around good with your PVC pipe, either way works fine.

I can see yourself cursing the drum, and once you get some money rolling in, that is the first thing I would upgrade. A larger tank.

You probably wouldn't be able to post that kind of video without some kind of warning like you must be 18 or older.

This is exactly what I want to do as this is going to be a side job for now is to make it grow and sustain itself before I jump off the cliff.

I don't have a golden parachute to catch me but as long as I have the correct mechanic working on the plane I will not need one.

We try not to talk about pw much on this forum as it will screw up our google ranks, but if you need house wash for PW and are paying more than $100 per barrel check out www.envirospec.com or google envirospec north. I use Limolene and ripper they work very well for vinyl and aluminum, also there super suds sucker injector is just awesome.

Also they are environmentally friendly , and donate all soap profits to a charity... These are great selling points we use, our customers love it.

Both Pressure and Cleaning are key words for us ?

Non Pressure Roof Cleaning

I went shopping at Walmart last weekend to buy alcohol.

I noticed they now stock both 70% and 91% isopropol alcohol, and I now see why people have been asking about the stronger 91% and if it should be mixed the same.

The 70% has a blue label and the 91% has a red label.

Here is what I am going to do. I bought both 70% and 91%

I will use 2 quarts of 70% for a 40 gallon mix.

Big roofs that will need 50 gallons I will use 2 quarts of 91% alcohol.

That should give me about the same percentage alcohol for both mixes.

Chris,

It may serve you and all of us well to do a Keyword search for which words are GOOD and which words are NOT so good for the Google Spiders to crawl our site with so we utilize and maximize our leverage in the Roof Cleaning segment and Pressure Cleaning segment but not as much the pressure washing segment so we are more keyword specific?

Maybe a NEW THREAD dedicated to KEYWORD relevance and how to be clear on which words to use and not use?

Just a thought?

I kinda want to "open up" the In The Shade part of the Forum for OTHER discussions ?

It is CLOSED to Non Members but NOT to search engines.

I was talking to a web guru yesterday.
He told me it can actually be GOOD to have "other non roof cleaning relatedconversations" on the Forum !!

He warned me about a OVER Optimization Penalty Google can slap on us if we are TOO much about our keywords ONLY cry

I seen the 70% and 91% the other day at Wal-Mart and was wondering about the higher percentage, let us know how it works out. I get SH for 110.oo here in virginia beach and tax makes it 115.50 for 55 gl drum. With tax it works out to be 2.10 a gallon so the apple cider mix saves me money with only 1 coat most of the time. Mike the Fatboy pump is in as of today and works great.

The 91% works great. That is what we use to clean roofs here in Evansville, IN. Your price on the SH 55'er is not too bad. We had been paying a bit more, but found a different vendor.

Back in November they raised the price of 12.5% bleach to $2.37/gallon

When I called in another order I was able to get Univar to drop their price on 12.5% bleach from $2.37/gallon to $1.98/gallon.

I was paying $1.15/gallon last year! I hate inflation.
