Water Dragon Hot Water Pressure Washing And Roof Cleaning Skid

I saw this clever skid, and thought it was a very good idea, for a piece of cleaning equipment that will fit in a pick up truck bed.

I like the fact they pull from the top of the tanks, vs trouble prone bulkhead fittings, that can leak roof cleaning chemicals all over.

I still can't figure out how they flush the chemical injector after use. Maybe Doug R will chime in if he sees this.

 Good Question Ed! Doug will know, I am sure. WE don't do pressure washing, but if we did, this thing is too cool, IMHO!

Hot Water too, all in the back of a pick up truck, all self contained, wonder how much it costs ?

 Depends on if you want model you get.  Start adding items like 8gpm's, hot water,  better hose and heated seats, then your pushing $10k +.

 Well, considering that some people are paying near 8 grand for roof and softwashiing skids only, that's not so bad,

Like they say, it is only expensive once biggrin

 No it's not bad.  A compact skid with pressure washing capabilities can generate good money.  4-5 good days will pay for that.  I'll be going the skid route 2014 and most likely will be leaning towards Paul's design.

 Especially one with Hot Water Capabilities!  Will you be getting Hot Water on the skid you finally wind up buying from someone ED ? 

I do not pressure wash by choice, but if I did, I would want hot water, simply because I think I could sell it better. Especially to all the tree huggers, who are concerned, and rightfully so, to the introduction of chemicals into the environment.

I would make sure all my prospective concrete cleaning customers knew that with Hot Water, I can clean w/o using chemicals on their driveways and sidewalks, and not pollute.

Yes guys I am loving mine.  In Houston I sometimes travel an hour to get to a job.  We mostly do large houses and roofs. Not hauling a trailer those distances is really nice. Yes they run between 8-10k but you can also get below 8k I believe, if you go with a 5GPM.

Hot water skids are available, but if I remember correctly, with a hot water skid for a pick up there is not enough room for the dual roof pump.

 Thanks for posting about this on PWI Doug! I just got off the phone with our mutual friend Larry Millette, who says you absolutely love your Water Dragon!

Paul Kassander of the Powerwashstore.Com  continues to amaze me, with the truly innovative cleaning products he puts out. 

I gave up dragging trailers around years ago, easy for us, because we mainly only clean roofs. With the introduction of this truly innovative cleaning machine, trailers can now be a thing of the past, even for pressure washing contractors, who also clean roofs.

ED said that fully loaded with options, this machine can approach 10 grand. I say "So What" ?

A good trailer can easily be 3 grand right there, and when you factor in the convienience of not having to hook up, and drag a trailer around, that has to be worth something!

 Is there a 1/4" - 3 way valve that can draw fresh water?

No. For rinsing my pumps I just remove the inlet hose from the back of the pump, pop on a small hose, and rinse from a Five gallon bucket. It's very easy.

 One problem with electric (12 volt) roof cleaning pumps is, unless the nozzle size is large enough to keep the pump running all the time when the ball valve is open, they will cycle on and off. All this cycling shortens the life of parts of the pump, and will eventually lead to failure.

I believe this system has DUAL PUMPS, a wise move, because when and if one fails, you have a backup ready to roll !!!!!

An option, if it is not already available, would be to have a bypass installed, to send excess pressure and flow back into the tank.

This way, the pump runs all the time (when the ball valve is open), instead of cycling on and off.

IMHO, if this option is not already one of the choices you can have on this fine product, it would be nice to have.

Of course, those of us who use Air Pumps need not worry about on and off cycling, no matter how small the nozzles we use are.

Cycling on and off is the "Achilles Heel" of 12 volt pumps.

A simple, back to the tank bypass, solves this problem, almost completely!

Once a 12 volt roof cleaning pump is set up properly (with a bypass), the cycling STOPS! 

Then, the only "problem", becomes not exceeding the duty cycle of that particular pump.

Heat buildup (the chit that happens when the pump runs all the time) becomes a factor, a factor that is totally absent, in an air pump.

But, an air pump setup, with compressor, is not only quite expensive, but it is also space consuming.

That is not a problem for us, since 90 percent of our business is cleaning roofs.

Our trucks are dedicated to the only thing we mainly do.

But, for a cleaning contractor, who cleans more then just roofs, the extra space required for a full blown air pump set up just may not be available!
