Hello my name is Pete Haselden I am a journeyman roofer with 16 years under me and just started a new company close to seattle. I want to add a roof cleaning service as we get big carpets of moss here. I would like to build or buy a rig but cant really see what you guys are using in your photos. can i use a pressure washer turned down really low? any advice would be appreciated thank you. www.pa-roofing.info

Pete, you can't use a pressure washer. The SH is too strong and will rust it out in no time. The mix will not downstream. A good place to start is to srarch pumps.

Talk with Mark from Waterworks N.W. who posts on this forum.
He is down in Portland, and you are far enough away he might share some secrets with you ?

He meant "search pumps", instead of "srarch pumps". As in , use the search button at the top of the forum.

You can go with a couple different kinds of pumps...there are roller type pumps that are 12v or air diaphragm pumps that are pushed by air....like they said, use the search button for more information on them....

The roof cleaning out here is really not the same system as the RCIA advocates, we get forests of moss on roofs out here. The sauce works well to kill it but it takes a minute. 4 weeks on the last one I sprayed. If you mix 8 ounces of zinc sulfate powder with water then spray it all down after dropping sauce you should be good sooner then the 4 week mark. Waiting for some sunshine to make things easier! By the way dont do anything in winter. It just makes your deal look bogus, since it may take 2 months for the stuff to loosen its roots and die.

Seattle Roof Cleaner, how about you read your biography. Then apologize for stealing someones pictures and then remove them from your website? You got to be kidding me blaming him cause you stole them.

I think you are embarrassed about being caught stealing and thats your reason for leaving and you cant deal with criticism. I personally dont want people on here that will just steal photos and not even throw a thanka their way.

Donnie, This happened recently. Seattle Roof Cleaning stole an RCIA members photos from his website. He was asked to remove them. Instead, he goes to another forum and says it was the other guys fault that he stole the pictures. The best part is his biography. Just remove his pics and apologize, you got caught.

Keep it up-bringing up dead issues last thread was pulled cause you couldnt shut your mouth. Hopefully this one gets pulled as well. Keep the issues on topic. This has got nothing to do with you. The issue was killed here but your following me around like a b--tch. What the wrong with you did I insult your boyfriend?
