Whats the best nozzle set up, ( just starting out ), for shingle roofs using a Delavan 5800 series pump ? Many of the roofs in my area, ( upstate NY, are steep ).

Use 5/8" hose and #40 nozzles.

There are many suppliers out there like PressureTek, Southside Equipment, Envirospec, etc.... It really is personal preference or ask others who they prefer before buying to see about their experiences.

Guns: You can use a pvc ballvalve or a polygun like I posted in another thread from Bob at PressureTek or almost anything but if it has metal, it will start rusting soon, even Stainless Steel.

Nozzles: Some people like the 0040, 0030 for distance and the 1540 or 1530 for small fan patterns but you can buy whatever you like and give it a try to see what works best for you.

Good Luck!

I have been through way more poly guns than I care to mention. I spend about5 bucks and I build my own now. I just use a pvc ball valve and I build what I want from there. I have 5 different ones I keep in the tool box. I built them all for about what one poly gun cost.

Good Post! Thumbs up

+1 ....I second that Russ.

Build your own with ball valves and save the money to have several different types for different situations or for backup

When shooting from the ground, I like to use a 2540, or 1540. When I need to get up there on the roof, which is very rarely, I prefer to use a 1515.

Ditto about the poly gun, and the quick connect setup. You will have a few mishaps and spill SH everywhere!!
