First of all, my thanks to everyone for such a great forum.
Just starting out, and have been incessantly researching power washing forums for months. My head gets dizzy sometimes from all the information out there. I know that what i am trying to do would not be the best way to do it, but i am trying to macgyver things a little bit just to start rolling. Later on down the line, i can upgrade to better equipment.
Purchased a vehicle that had a 12v pump in it, and i want to build my first roof cleaning setup around it. Here it is:
Tank: 55 gallon drum for holding roof mix. Plan on just dropping the hose down into the hole on top.
Hose: Not sure about this. Can i just use like 200’ of clear braided tubing from Lowes or Home Depot? Is 1/2" ok for this setup, or should i go to 5/8"? How about the hose that drops into the mix tank? If there is a hose from Home Depot/Lowes that would work better, what would it be?
If anyone sees a problem, or knows of some basic stuff i could get at the local stores that would improve things, please let me know. For instance, if that pump wouldn’t really operate sufficiently, i guess i could use it as a transfer pump for my SH, and could go get a 5.5 Delavan from TSC.
Thanks for any advice here.
