Thoughts on Tile Roof Cleaning $ Thanks to Apple Roof Cleaning for another job!

First, thanks again Chris for referring me to a job down here in my neck of the woods!
I got it and have it scheduled for this Friday!
Now, tile roof cleaning.
I just ordered some Ammonyx Lo from Lori along with the rest of my stuff.
I'm hoping that it will thicken my cleaning solution more. 75% of the "love" mix sprayed on tile roofs, especially glazed tile, runs right back down into the gutters or without gutters, onto my tarps! I tarp every plant, under every roof I do, gutters or not, or water constantly, but after all these years, it still bothers to see any amount of runoff!
I'm hoping this new Ammonyx Lo will be a big help?
What mixes do you folks, who, like me, do 75% tile roof cleaning?

We flood the root areas with water, starting when we arrive and run the water throughout the job, moving it from area to area. As I said, we tarp every plant or water constantly and then we rinse non guttered roofs off and rinse the plants after we finish.
STILL, occasionally, I get a call that the leaves on some hibiscus etc have yellowed or fallen off. I guarantee all homeowners that I will replace anything that dies, but ask that they give the plants a month or 2 to recover. I then stop in every other day and water if needed myself. If I could get a thick enough solution, to not run off, i'm sure I could clean the tile roofs with half the amount of cleaning solution!
It's only on those large, terribly blackened with mold, roofs, that this happens on in general.
I have done a great deal of searching here, and i've tried a few concoctions, but haven't hit upon anything that does not run off yet.
I've been in business since 1978 and here in Charlotte County Florida since 1989 and have only had 1 plant die, that I had to replace.
Unfortunately, it was a large plant and cost about $200.00 to have replaced.

Thanks for your input and thanks to Apple and all the other knowledgeable contributors here at RCIA smile.gif
