HI everyone,

I am addicted to this site, heck, my loose my marriage to it ( I cant get off of this computer).

I am a newbie, and have about 8-10k to invest in my new business.  With all of this talk about pumps and applicators, frankly I am confused as anything.

I have seen the Zeta Bandit on the PT website and I really like the thing (of course I have no idea about what I am talking about).  I would like a set up that is NOT barebones, but one that is really the top of the line.  I plan on focusing in on two areas, roofs and vinyl siding. 

Would I need to have 3 tanks in the van?  Cider, House wash, and fresh water?

I have a Chevy Van and plan to use it for the business.  Is the Zeta Bandit the way to go? 
Please keep in mind that I am an idiot when it comes to fixing things so I thought that the Bandit is a nice "turnkey" unit.

Your thoughts are very much appreciated!  Happy Holidays to you all and your families.

Hi Brad,

Welcome to the RCIA board.

I have built systems with these Zeta 40 (Zeta Bandit) pumps for guys and have one myself on my MONSTER RIG.

They are ok if you can repair the ZETA 40 pump and do a diaphragm replacement.

Not good if you are NOT mechanically inclined.

There are more reliable and more stable chemical delivery methods. 

Better to go with an air operated diapphragm system or electric 12V system.

I can build you a system. Call me, 229-227-0000

I will help you build a ultimate roof cleaning -house wash system that will be easy to maintain and will make your money back in no time.

Let me know if I can help you?

Happy 4th of July!

David

Hey thanks alot David,

I appreciate your help!  Is it possible to do it out of a van?  That would be the most effective for my situation.

Thank you so much,
Brad

Your Weclome. To answer your question.

Yes.

You can use a van as your roof cleaning vehicle.

I recommend a Ford Cargo Extended Version diesel and a E350 if you can. Windows on sides are not preferred but on back so you can back up easily are recommended.

A tank that vents to a out of van vent is best. You can pull a small trailer as well .

A 6 x 12 tandem axle is is optimum.
