Hi I already have high pressure equipment and i`m gathering enough $$$ to purchase a softwash rig, however tomorrow I must do a customers 3000sq ft deep tile roof I was thinking of putting a 5 gallon pool chlorine through downstreaming then leaving it on the tile for 10 mins before rinsing off with pressure wand

obviously wetting and tarping any foliage?

am I in the ballpark?

cheers

simon

Simon, you can't come close to our method of roof cleaning with apressure washing downstream injector.

It won't work. If you have to do the roof right away, you are stuck with pressure washing.

I live about 140 miles above you and the weather sure has been horrendous!

It rained over half the day yesterday and all day today-it just stopped about 6pm tonight!

Well, Simon, about that job. You are not going to be the only guy out there using that method to clean tile! It's not a great way to do it, but it's fairly common.

It takes about 3 times as long and is 10 times harder though. I know, I pressure washed roofs from 1978 until 1991, when I started chemical cleaning "Non Pressure"

As to the "Rotary Cleaner" I assume you mean a "Cement Surface Cleaner / Flat Surface Cleaner" ?

I own 2 of them and if I had to pressure wash a tile roof, I sure wouldn't get up there with one of those! They are dangerous for you and damaging to roofs, plus produce uneven results on "Non Flat" surfaces. But that's your business.

You should just take that $ you make and use it to become a "Premium" member here and to buy most of what you need to clean roofs the best way, with Soft-Washing.

That $100 bucks to be Premium, also gets "Premium Member" by your name here and that can lead to jobs, all by itself!

Once you become "Premium" and have your soft-wash equipment, then you can advertise you business on RCIA and you will see it on Google the next day-front page!

RCIA has great online SEO ability! But it's just for Premium members.

Trust me, it's the best way to get your business going right!

Chuck

Not close at all. The weather and business has been sweet over here in Orlando and Kissimmee, sunny all day and heavy rains at night. Stinks that you guys on the west coast are getting early rains.
