Aaand there goes the Yeingling again. I think we can just say that it's the official beer of roof cleaners. LOL




 Wow! I must be at home. That's the only beer the wife and I truly agree on.
Got a couple in the fridge now.


All this talk has me wondering something:

I have a 1/2 horsepower 12v motor. I wonder what pump head I could match up to it and what I could get out of it. It's bigger than the delevan 5850. Heck, might be bigger than a fat boy.

I tried hooking it up to a drill pump once. I got a good 40 feet out of a 3/8 hose and no end whatsoever. But the drill pump couldn't handle the SH at all. The drill pump was rated at 10 gpm. Maybe I'll try it again for a rinse pump.

Sometimes it is just more cost effective to buy a pump made or known to work for roof cleaning.
