Hey all,

           Lee here, Owner of Kendall Scapes LLC. We specialize in irrigation and lawn maintence but have really started looking into the roof cleaning, already bought the whole set up and have some jobs lined up.. One problem.. I cant seem to find a whole sale dealer around my area.. Berlin or ocean city or salisbury Maryland are the surrounding areas.. And I have used the search function some and some people are saying they mix up to 40gallons of sh with 60 gals of water? Does that sound right? If so ill be needing like 10 55 gallon drums?? Help me out if you can.. Ill continue to look for places to buy from.. All help is apreciated!!!

10 55 gallon drums of roof mix would clean a whole lot of roofs...most cleaners would rarely mix or need more than 100 gallons at a time. Forget the 5.5% stuff, waste of time and money.

Yeah I understand that I only need 100 gallons at a time, but if I have to buy it in bulk(which I cant seem to find in my area) I would need to order alot from somewhere else to have it shipped? Just trying to see what the best option is and what some of the other guys do

Try contacting Univar. Also look for companies that supply sh to your local water treatment plants.

haha. while I would like to give you 100 bucks and be on the other side.. I seem to have spent most of my extra cash on setup and a new trencher for irrigation.. But I did find a supplier 3 hours away who said he will deliver it for free!! It comes in 15 gal drums and there are 8 drums per pallet and a min order of 1 pallet... So I figure about 25gal sh to about 70 gallons water 1 gallon rubbing alcohol and some detergent? Should maybe get two average size houses out of 100 gallon tank?? Does that sound about right? Thanks for the help!

Come on Lee, you are asking for the whole ball of wax without even working for it. You spent so much that you can't even join, I guess I wouldn't either if people would just hand it to me. Next time your on here wear a mask I would respect you some what then!

Good luck Lee!  If you search long enough you will find the answers to everything you are asking.  Beware SH does have a shelf life if you order too much.  The good thing is that we are going into our winter months soon and the SH will last longer.  Beware of the Summer months.
