Has anyone solved the hose reel issue?? If your like me your using a stainless or even steel hose reel, and the manifold is made from either iron or stainless. Well "rust city" is what i've got. The boys over at Titan inform me there's nothing we vcan make that's practical. I have been racking my brain tryin to think of something.....Anybody got any ideas?

You know, I don't even use hose reels for my roof cleaning hoses anymore. Just as easy for me to use sections. I have three sections, 100' and two 50'. I rarely need two hundred feet and I don't have a leaking hose reel to fool with.
But, this is just how I like it, makes for one less thing to go wrong. May seem a little archaic but it works for me. I don't mind coiling hoses by hand, and I'm never in that much of a hurry.

I use a stainless steel Hose tract reel.

I use to have a 3/4" stainless steel swivel, but I decided to take it off because it was getting really rusty. I now use 3/4" banjo poly quick connects for my swivel instead. I disconnect it when I need to unroll and roll my hoses up. I always rinse the hose out with water before disconnecting the quick connects.

My hose reel is still fine though. No rust.

I have spoke to Summit about making an All STAINLESS STEEL ONE (1") MANIFOLD for their reels and it is a possibility that may happen if others show an interest?

This addresses flow, of course, and not the rust issue so let me get back to that.

I had been speaking to the Owner of Titan about making a SS -1" manifold for their 5528 series which would be about as good as it gets, then, Titan changed ownership a while back and the topic was shelved.

Chris, of Apple had mentioned in another thread about Kynar swivels or Teflon Swivels being bmade somewhere? Look further into this?

Do a SEARCH and see which THREAD that was on and follow up on it and let us all know what come up with and if you locate another solution.

Using a Stainless Manifold and Swivel and a consistant CLEAR WATER RINSE back into your SHC tank, requires building a multiple draw manifold) most times WILL do the trick to give most roof cleaners at least a couple to a FEW seasons of trouble free longevity before you will need to think about swivel repair kit / replacement?

The rest is about MAINTENENCE.

My personal thought is that if you are able to RINSE your HOSE and Manifold after the end of your work day consistently you will see a reduction of rust and an extension in the useful life of all your chemical delivery equipment?

Hope this Helps.

David

I use a hose reel from a local supply store that is made of plastic. I have everything plumbed in how I need it, and it holds 225' of hose. When it gets worn out, just replace it. I hate spending $250 on a titan or cox reel only to have the thing rust in two months.

Chris T., RE: The Kynar Swivel on you birdie finger

Where do I source this Kynar swivel?

Is that 1/2" ?

Do you know if they make a 3/4" Chris or 1"?

That swivel looks like it is threadless? IS it?

If so, does the manufacturer make 1/2" threaded?

I need 6 of these in 1/2" Threaded MPT now?

Let me know where I can place an order for these Please.

Thanks, David

Probably not! Especially since Chris responded with "yeah right" LOL!

I wish though, a 3/4" kynar swivel would be perfect.

I wish a lot of things, like

1) Fix global warming

2) Pay off the national debt of 10 trillion dollars

3) Climb Mount Everest in one day without oxygen

4) Beat Fedor and win the WAMMA Heavyweight championship

5) Beat Brock Lesnar and win the UFC Heavyweight championship

Doesn't sound unreasonable does it?

Is this a reality Professor Chris T. Of Apple Roof Cleaning?

Do you know of a KYNAR SWIVEL in 1/2" that would be acceptable to mount on a SS Titan manifold and handle 100-150psi?

confuse Hi Dave I was reading this post just before i was calling Lori to order a hose reel, so i first called Titan and spoke to Mark and he said they have a 1" stainless manifold ,then i called Lori and she was told by someone else there that they do not. She then called Mark and found out they do one model is a 5022-6 its all stainless Lori can sell it for 555.00 it holds 300' of 5/8" hose . To much for me right now as a newbie i ordered a 4322s its aluminum with a 1/2 ss manifold & swivel it also can hold up to 300' of 5/8" hose, so for you guys with those big pumps and hoses heres your 1" manifold . Hey Chris if you read this Lori thought you were from New York

RE: Hose reels= Here's what we do
Permalink  
 


I have iron hose reels on my roof cleaning trailers and use them to store my 200' 5/8" hoses. However, they are not plummed in. Just used for easy, fast pickup and storage & space saving. I pull the hose off, use it, rinse it out and reel it back on again! smile.gif
Now, with my pressure washing trucks, they have plummed hose reels for pressure washing hoses. No leaks yet! ?
2 are SS steel and 2 are iron.

Vinny,

Post what you know about the Kynar coatings on the web.

Anyone with good info on roof cleaning and or ways you feel may make life easier for all roof cleaners in general should always be followed up by a link to the source of where you found the info.

We all learn together and grow as one roof cleaning brotherhood.

Participation by ALL is the key.

Just because you are a newbie or student of roof cleaning does not mean you cannot come up with a revolutionizing new idea or better way to do something or if you find the next ultimate gadget that may make life better for the next guy on the board...post that info with a link to it.

Bring it on Vinny, let's see these badboy Kynar spray coatings

They may be spendy but its still worth a L@@K!
biggrin
