Not necessarily. I use the 40's and love 'em, but different strokes for different folks. the 30's will get you through your "crash course 4 roofs in one day training seminar".

WHAT if I were to tell you I have uncovered alittle knownsurfactant that will FOAM or GEL the Roof Cleaning Mix if you want, that is TOTALLY Chlorine Stable, and MIGHT be able to obtain WITH a scent for CHEAP. biggrin
WOULD you be "Interested", LOL
Of COURSE you would !
Well, That is EXACTLY what is going down smile
Samples will be sent to me within a couple of weeks!
This stuff is AMAZING guys.
Depending on how much you add to your mix, and it is DIRT Cheap. you can go from a slight cling, to a foam, OR to a GEL !!!
This will greatly assist dwell time, making it possible to clean with evenLESS Chlorine, saving Money AND Plants.
This is the "Holy Graille" for us roof cleaners.
The stuff is a POWERFUL Surfactant too, making TSP and other non water soluble additives obsolete!
The Company who makes this HAS supplied this product WITH a scentin the past.
So, we will be able to have our choice of scented, vs unscented!!
I am SOO very excited about this discovery guys I can hardly sit down!
Just to give you some ideas, a 55 gallon drum of this stuff is under 300 dollars !!
It only takes .5 to 1 percent to do it's thing, so 55 gallons lasts FOREVER !!
That means, in our 300 gallon tanks, we only need from 1.5 to 3 gallons added to our mix.
and TOTAL water solubility, just dump it in, and STIR.

Can YOU see the advantages of this product ?

I WILL be testing it soon.



Good Morning Buddy!

Great Info and the price and concentration sounds exciting!

I know you and I have discussed this before, several times since last year.

It is good to know that you are moving ahead with the new samples and testing.

It sounds like from the other posts we are all eager to hear the results you obtain.

Meanwhile I would also like to test this product.

Can you PM me the particulars so I can order a drum?

Thanks, Chris,

for keeping us all posted on this revolutionizing product and for researching this for the benefit of the roof cleaning industry.

The Chlorine Stable Surfactant is called Deterge CS 45 LE and the Surfactant with the thickener is called De Mox CSG 30

Talk to either Pam or Ernest Randolph at 561 994 9696 if you would like to assist in the roof cleaning surfactanttesting ?

Chris, didI misunderstand? Is the thickener NOT chlorine stable? I assumed that the surfactant and the thickener were/are one in the same.

If not, then we need to mix both the surfactant and the thickener into our mix, and that won't weaken the strength of the SH or rob its chemical structure of cleaning power?

No Kevin, they are DIFFERENT products!
The De Mox contains BOTH the Chlorine stable surfactant AND a thickener
The Deterge is ONLY the Surfactant.

The De Mox is a little more expensive, and it was said you can just use a LITTLE of it if only a surfactant is needed.

I THINK a thickened mix will increase dwell time, and allow the use of LESS Chlorine strength due to the surfactant aiding the roof cleaning mix ?

We will SEE ?

I URGE any and ALL roof cleaners to take part in this important study ?

Perhaps ONE day, you can honestly say you were on the ground floor of changing what we use for a roof cleaning chemical ??

The stuff is NOT expensive at all,, actually works out CHEAPER then Dawn, in the long run !

I look forward to any info you come up with and i'm ready to pay my share and even drive up and pick up 10 gallons to try out.
I want to do the most professional job possible and offer my customers the cleanest roof job possible at a reasonable price. This product may help me do that just a little bit better!
Thanks, Chuck

I JUST opened the Box !
They only sent enough to make up 5 gallons or so, for me to decide how much we need to get the viscosity correct.

I have to play

I take a week off from this board to get some work done as the busy season started with a blast and so did this board. This new chemical sounds to good to be true, How is it working and who distributes it?

Sounds great Chris... really keen to see it. Chemical names would be good if possible, as i need to locate chemical supply here in Oz.... too difficult to import chemicals.
