I use one like this.

You push the nozzle out for low pressure and soap. Pull it in for High pressure no soap. Plus it fans out or a 0*for shooting soap & rinsing up high.

Jeff can you give a link for the picture you posted the other day. I don't see it. Maybe I'm blind.
Thanks, David

I'm an x-jetter.  I used to downstream early on, wasn't impressed.  I also didn't have 12.5% back then.  I will be trying downstreaming again this summer. Maybe it will make me an ex-jetter.

 



Tom,..what was the issue(s) you had with downstreaming? The strength of the mix is an easy hurdle,.was there anytthing other than that?

Jeff,  It was 10 years ago.  I don't think I used strong enough chems.  I also didn't like waiting for the the soap to come and leave.  I definately do plan on giving it a shot this summer.  Next time I'm near PressureTek I'll stop in and bother Bob.  Are there different downstreamers?  What do you guys reccomend?

Hey Tom,..waiting for the soap isn't a big deal when you get used to it and realize the time it saves in the overall picture.

When you're spraying soap,..stop before you're done,..and switch to the rinse nozzle to use up the soap in the line. Did I explain that good enough?

Here is the injectors I use:

Jeff, Good explanation.  I definately see the advantage to not dragging a 5er of soap and having to stop midway to mix up more chems.  I did just buy 2 x-jets from Bob last fall.

You are lucky to be so close to Bob up there in Cleveland! It would be kind of cool if you went there one day, and took pictures to post on RCIA. Most of us, including me, have never met Bob.

When washing the exterior of a building I save time and back strain by down streaming.
