The Ultimate Water Hose For Plants!
Permalink  
 


Guys, the bigger round your water hose is, the more flow, and the better and faster you can water plants.
These are what we use http://www.factorydirecthose.
com/site/932652/product/MG34x100


These hoses are light, easy to use, and tough as nails.
They cut watering time almost in 1/2!

IMHO, this hose belongs in every roof cleaners trailer/truck

100 foot we find is plenty,  we simply move it from spicket to spicket.

Once you use either this Mean Green 3/4, or even better the 1 inch water hose, you will learn the "secret" of protecting plants (Plenty of water)

Dilution IS the solution roof cleaning

There IS a difference in Mean Green, and all other water hoses, don't cheap out, and go to Sears!

This big hose is incredibly light and strong, we Love it biggrin

NOT at all biggrin
It is a freaking pleasure to use it!
A dry roll of it is actually lighter then an equal roll of 1/2 garden hose!
There is no comparason as far as flow goes, this hose drenches plants, and drenches em fast.
No, it will not hold up to the chlorine, already tried it!
Here is a pic of it on an old truck.

They make different colors too!
The water coming out of these is incredible.
Most simply don't believe what a difference hose diameter makes, especially in a low pressure situation like a roof cleaning pump, or a house spicket.
Firemen don't use huge  hoses just to be Macho.

Chris, 1 inch hose is even better, we just did not have enough room on our trucks for it.
This hose is light, and incredibly strong.
We like Fire Hose Type Nozzles Chris, they can drench AND allow you to stand back on a windy day and shoot the plants too!

But water nozzles depend a lot on the local water pressure.

Wells are notoriusly low about water pressure, that makes BIG water hose even more important, to preserve what little pressure you have left!

I used to use 1 inch water hose, me Personally, but you must remember Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa is not me in a Trcuk.
We are a real roof cleaning company, with 2 full time trucks runing the streets of Tampa.

The 1 inch hose got "ooohs and aahss" from our custmers when we drug it cross their grass.
Makes you LOOK professional, IMHO! 

When you start watering their plants with an ordinary garden hose, they have a tendency to think, "Chit, I could have done that"

They see the big 3/4 or 1 inch hose, it makes you LOOK good biggrin

     Mean Green is a Mean Machine! If you don't have one, go get one now! The flow is awesome, and 75 ft. of 3/4 hose weighs around 6 lbs! It should be in every roof cleaner's arsenal.

One should always have a few nozzles around, for any water pressure situation you encounter.
Big Lots  used to sell plastic small fire hose nozzles for 7 bucks each.
Often times, especially on low water pressure houses, the smaller nozzles are sometimes better.

Chris, I dont like these lever type fire hose nozzles.
The water hose always winds up in the grass, you pull it, and the lever bends as it snags.
In the best case, your azz gets wet, most times it ruins the nozzle.

I prefer the simply screw type fire hose nozzles.

The 100' blue one is on its way! I have been using a 75' good year for a few years now and that hose is past retirement. Thanks Chris. Good timing.

The Mean Green only goes up to 3/4, and that is what we us. Fire Hose Nozzles work well.
