I bought some amm lo etc from Roof Cleaning Chemicals Florida Chemical Supply yesterday

Marilyn was very nice to deal with and her prices were very good too!

I suggested she join RCIA and offer her chemicals, as we all need something!

What impressed me also, was that when I got home, I did a viscosity test on the amm lo I had purchased from another vendor and from Marilyn.

I had 1 new 5 gallon bucket left from the other vendor to do a viscosity test from.

I was shocked!

I had only purchased amm lo from one vendor in the past, so I never had a way to compare. This amm lo I got from Marilyn is MUCH thicker!

Of course, as I've said before, thicker / slower / longer hang time, is what I'm looking for!

WELCOME MARILYN!!!

Missed ya by a day!!!
I don't use np9 because I can't stand losing gallons and gallons of SH when it sets in the tank.
An overdose of Amm lo will have to suffice, until a non killer form of np9 comes out!

Chuck;

As of yesterday, Florida Chemical is our newest paid vendor. Marilyn seems very nice from talking to her on the phone.

 We did 2 roofs with the NP 9 today, the first one was great, we stopped to eat, and drive to the last job. Our chemical was so weak by then it barely cleaned no

I saw that!

She is both very nice and very knowledgeable!

My wife and I sat and talked to her for an hour. We even kept her there 20 minutes after closing time, without realizing it!

Strikes me as a good, honest person to buy from!

Definately my new source for chemicals from here on!

That's an even faster SH kill than I was aware of!

I'll stick to SH stable A. L. biggrin

Today I cleaned the rottenest looking tile roof ever! Black as coal.

Built in the mid 70's small and never cleaned!

I sent a camera for before and after pictures with my son.

The yard was just dirt, so there were no plant concerns. MY SON SAID HE FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES! Dangit! cry

Chuck, Thank You for the nice compliment.  Please be aware of companies offering products at prices below market value such as the ammonyx lo.  There are some companies that sell products really cheap, however, they dilute the product to make  top dollar off of the sale.  We have seen this over and over again in the chemical industry and when dealing with some of the smaller companies these are the areas to watch. I would almost bet you received a product that was cut at least 1 to 1, so you actually paid $20.00/Gallons.  I could teach all of you how to test your products to insure you are purchasing full strength products and not a cut version.  We are a chemical company and have been in business for 38 years.  We do not misrepresent nor alter them.  The ammonyx lo and most of the surfactants used in cleaning products are at an all time high in the market.  This is due to manufacturing costs, high price of fuels and alcohols used in the manufacturing. 

I am trying to work on some prices to extend to all members so that we can give everyone an advantage and cut some of their cleaning costs.

I am working on a solution for a product that could be the offset with more foam and thickening agents than the ammonyx lo.  The ammonyx lo might have worked fine if you had gotten the full strength product and not a cut version.   I will keep you posted.

You are welcome!

I have been adding 3/4 - 1 gallon am lo to my tile roof mixes.

I just did a couple of jobs with the Am Lo I got from you and 1/2 gallon was plenty to slow the runoff down to what I need it to be!

I had heard accusations here in the past, of watering down Am Lo, but I did not believe it was true.

Now I do.
