Apple Roof Cleaning Goes Shopping At Wal Mart And Lowes ...

Apple Goes Shopping At Wal Mart And Lowes

I wanted to take you guys on a shopping trip with me.
Whenever I shop, I have roof cleaning in mind.
Lets explore what Wal mart and Lowes have to offer the roof cleaner, in a pinch ?
First of all,there IS 10 percent SH for 2.96 a gallon.
Handy, if ya need some on a weekend and are out
Then, there are some plastic spray devices and angled wands.
Then, there is the my shooting concotion using a 3/4 inch ball valve, and both a 1/4 and 3/8 hose barb.
I am just gonna start posting pictures, ask any questions you like, and we will go from there.
Lets play a game and see how much you guys know what this stuff is for ?

I looked at the soap dispenser as an Idea.
The IDEA was, why not put some copper sulfate IN the dispenser to TREAT roofs with a freaking garden Hose ??

I WILL be posting the quick change/ball valve spraying combo we use.
Now that I HAVE the parts numbers, LOL
We do a lot of Non Pressure Roof Cleaning Tampa
Nozzle performance is a must, and we find ANY kind of Metal Nozzle soon LOSES it's spray pattern.
Brassroof cleaning nozzlesenlarge, and a 3 gpm soon turns into a 5 gpm, or MORE.

I tried the copper sulfate idea a few years ago. Didn't work well for me, and I even thought I mixed it strong,....just to get results.. Maybe I didn't mix it strong enough though..., but it would be expensive to use at higher concentrations anyhow. I don't think it will give that instant gratification that SH does.

Has anyone else tried it with or without good luck?

Good thinkng! If you are ever in a pinch and they don't have it, Menards is also a good place to pick up a few things if your suppliers are closed for the weekend. That is if there are any located near you.

 Hey Jeff! I think the CS would would best as a yearly maintenance application rather than for an initial cleaning. And for a low pitch roof could be easier than mixing a light solution of SH and water and pulling all your hoses out. You could fill the reservoir w/ CS hook it up to a garden hose and spray.

I believe thats what Chris was getting at. I could be wrong though....
