the mix that doesnt need to be mixed
Permalink  
 


Ok i am sure everyone have their own mix set up. a cup of this and a squort of that and a splash of smell killer. if you can remember back to the old mix of just good old H2O, Fresh SH, TSP.  i am going to be following that way.

 

but with a twist!!!!

take a 50 gallon tank or what you aready have and mix 40 gallons of SH and 10 gallons of H2O.

 

take another tank and mix 46 gallons of H2O and 4 gallons of TSP premix.

to make TSP premix take 4 lb of TSP and mix with 1 gallon of HOT H2O. this can be made ahead of time and stored in a extra tank and poured into the mix when needed.

now take your All-Flow and get the dual manafold and draw from both tanks at the same time. what this does it allows your SH and TSP to stay seperated from each other untill they hit the pump.

this is a great setup for people who dont do alot of roofs and dont want to have extra love left in a mix tank or not mix the right amout and end up remixing a small batch.

sorry for the long post but i think it will change the roof cleaning institute. it may need changes for the people using somthing other than a All-Flow. sorry

This has been discussed several times. The problem is getting the sdame amount of draw from both tanks. Better use CLEAR hose so you can check the flow. Ask Chris T about this. He's tried it with little success.

Yes,I posted on this a few days back as well.I would say a little left over love in your tank should be treated as if it were water.Over time you will have it down to where there is very little left over after a project.

I agree with Aaron, I hardly have any mix left over. Brian Friel gave us the idea about two years ago of using left over mix as water in future mixes. It's agreat idea and at times gives the new mix a little extra kick.

It will draw equal from both tanks with a all flow or any dual chamber pump. The all flow is basically two pumps. In one. The left side wil draw from left tank of SH and water/ the right side will draw water and tsp. The mixing happens after the pump in the top part of the pump. I will be building this setup so stayed tuned.

Chuck B runs tandem pumps  which should work well, in this case one could use a  3 gpm for h20, 2 gpm for SH, however; as someone mentioned in my recent post, the pump running the straight SH may not last long?

Then Art pointed out the additional failure point tho.  I still find the concept interesting and plan to investigate it more when time permits.

A all-flow is rated to pump SH.

Good luck with this BEE. I will point out that there is a reason that these good ole boys aren't doin it.I thought the same as you then I thought why re-invent the wheel. I would like to know how well it works so after you've done about 10 roofs with it give us a full report!

If your talking house wash, my mix for house washing is not anywhere near 20%. Way to strong.
