Chris, This is the new Comet Pump I told you about that I got. The mc-16. It sprays 4gpm @ 220psi (max)It is the newest model that came out. I found out that the regulator in this one can be replaced if needed. It just unscrews and you pop the new one right in. The new regulator cost is only about $30.00 I've only done about 7 Roof Cleanings with it so far and it seems to be running perfectly. No complaints---Yet! LOL..

I had my guy who works on all my equipment order it one day when I was in the middle of doing 2 Tile Roofs and both of my sureflows died on me. Been having nothing but problems with the sureflows for the past 5 months. I was over it big time. I couldn't afford the expence of a roof Cleaning Pump such as the Yamada at this time so I went with the comet. It's comletely Chemical reistant and is working great so far. I know nothing in this biz lasts forever but we'll see how long I can get out of this one. Hopefully the next will be an upgrade to the Yamada like Chris'. My sureflow is also still hooked up and is now running fine again.A switch of a ball valve on my chem line allows me to use either one. Kinda like having the best of both worlds!

I run the Yamada also, (poly Version). But I actually have the roller hooked up also for applying house washing mix. But I like the way it sprays compared to the Yamada, just won't hold up to roof mix for long. Gets old using them while they're dying. Only used one all last Summer spraying only house mix. But I like the idea of the back up also. The stalling issue with the Yamada is hopefully fixed, by the addition of an oiler.

Roller Pumps work GREAT for roof cleaning, when they are new.
Then, they die, and allall too fast.
Cleaning 3 to 5 roof a day like we did, roller pumps lasted a very short time.
We prefer the relaiability of the Yamada for cleaning roofs.

Is there a huge difference in the longetivity between the Yamada poly or Kynar pumps?

Is it worth the money to go with the Kynar over the Poly pump?

What is the cost to rebuild when it is needed?

Thanks.
