 A Few RCIA Testers are currently testing some "quick and dirty" Gel Technology I showed them using Dawn Dish Soap, but they are sworn to secrecy, until after the Tampa Roundtable, where I will show everyone how cheap and  easy it is to make a Roof Cleaning Gel with Dawn, of sorts.

As I said, I have the technology to make a Super roof cleaning Gel, it is just expensive.

The Gel made out of Dawn Dish Soap is NOT as good, but it is so cheap and easy to make, it is a worthwhile improvement IMHO over any non gelled roof cleaning solution.

 

 


 

Chris the question now is it going to be safe to use on painted walls for washing down siding of house.


 Well, the Gel will cling better to vertical surfaces, so SH chemical concentrations will have to be reduced a bit because of the increased dwell time. It will stick better to the walls before it runs, but it may have weird run off patterns, we will have to see ?

The Gel MAY be a bitch to get out of screens too Chris, we will have to see. These are good questions you brought up biggrin

I pretty much live in a roof cleaning only world. We do clean houses, but they are less then 10 percent of our business.

 Yes Jose, it is my hope that it will help every roof cleaner somedaybiggrin

Of course, cost is a big factor, and the ease of making it. I have a way to give about 1/2 the benefits of the more expensive Gel for very cheap cost I am working on, as we speak.

I am unable to acheive a TRUE Gel with it, at the monent. But I do get a very worthwhile and noticeable overall thickening effect, with virtually ZERO added cost!

I can tell you that for me in California where half the roofs don't have rain gutters, the gel-like substance would be very valuable..

What happens when it rains? Will that make the run off more potent?

 NO, the GEL will allow u to use less roof cleaning chemical concentration because it sticks and stays on better. It will still evaporate like regular solution, but because it is thicker,,  it should not come off the roof with the morning Dew as easy!

 It is still in the experimental phase Jose. At this point, it is pretty expensive to make a tank of it.  If cost were no object, I have the technology to make roof cleaning Gel.

I have some very promising samples of a new gelling substance coming to experiment with. Until then, I will be demonstrating a quick, cheap and dirty Gel anyone can easily make using Dawn Dish Soap at the Tampa Roundtable. Will this Gel made out of Dawn Gel up a whole tank of roof cleaning chemical ? The answer is no. But it is so cheap and easy to do, and will provide a worthwhile increase in viscosity. It will be kind of like adding STP or Lucal  to your engine oil Jose. You know how a can of STP will thicken up your engine oil ? It will be kind of the same with the Gel I will teach everyone to make with Dawn Dish Soap.
