Mother of pearl is this thing amazing! I thought 5.5 was pretty good, but man does this thing clean like a beast with my 19” Ultra. I was actually walking behind it on a sidewalk, zero stripes. Zip-zap and done.
Thanks @Innocentbystander for unloader setting instructions, super easy. I did a 5gal bucket test and it filled it in 35 seconds without any nozzles, so not sure what PSI but it’s completely obvious the difference. I was able to hit the top peak of a 3 story house with a #6 shooter nozzle.
So now a couple caveats. Less downstreaming concentration, expected that. Will take some getting used to. Using a 3-5gpm/2.1 GP so probably smallest I can go.
The surface cleaner now wants to fly away. 4-25025’s now, may try 2503’s just for the heck of it. I had to put an ankle weight on it.
Congrats, which one did you get?
Yea I had to put a couple 2.5 weights on my surface cleaner, as it was it hovered at waist height
I put the TSF2021 on my GX630 with gear drive. Just amazing.
Hey, another question. I was informed I “must” get a 1” hose and bulkhead for this pump at some point, 3/4” seems to feed it just fine though. Thoughts?
I believe the manual says use at least the same size as your inlet, I use 1” and it’s plenty, some go double the inlet size, so 1.5. But plenty of flow with 1”
Curious what your PSI is with the GX630 and that pump.
Yeah me too. Russ was fresh out of gauges.
I’ll check with another local vendor.
What size buffer tank were you running? How did that go?
Did I miss something? When did you decide to upgrade?
You’ve gone to the dark side DC. Pretty soon you’ll be tucking your shirt in and drinking cheer wine!
Shockingly well. Did two jobs with it today, one housewash and one deck with added sidewalk. 55gal tank didn’t get below 3/4.
Dude, I managed to hunt down some Cheerwine here in Louisville. Aisle 10 in Meijer, bottom shelf.
Shirts will remain untucked however.
Oh, got tired of taking forever on large driveways and using my 6’ lance to barely reach 3 story houses. I’ve had the pump for three weeks but couldn’t get that flippin’ pulley off the 5.5 pump so I said the heck with this and got a gearbox.
My 5.5 wants my20in to hover at waist height with 2503. I did have to lift it for it to start hovering tho.
I’m still curious what brand geardrive
Huh. Mine just floated a little with those. 200’ of hose cuts down on PSI quite a bit.
You really need a 1 inch feed line. The dual feeding the pump is nonsense, but you really needed a 1 inch line
