You’ll be fine, water will always be wide open anyway.
Like @Patriotspwashing said, water is always open anyway so you should be fine.
never understood why people have a soap valve on there proportioner, I put the soap in my sh tank and leave it, obviously doesn’t sit in the tank mixed for days or weeks because it gets used And refilled. never needed to adjust soap. Everything I wash has the same amount of soap from house washes to concrete and fences to pre and post treatment of concrete. I’ve never had a job where I wish I had or needed more soap. I only adjust my sh valve for strength, can’t get any easier to use than that. I look at some of these proportioners and wonder why people put so much complexity into something so simple
@Patriotspwashing even with roofs I don’t adjust my soap, if it sticks to a side of the house it’s sure going to stick and stay wet on a roof with a pitch of some degree. People generally go very generous on the soap to have less run off witch is the wrong method in the first place. With a 4-5% sh strength we’re basically talking death on impact in most situations and there is no need to absolutely waterfall a roof to get the desired results. My guys do a roof solo without me needing to pay a guy to stand around watering plants for what essentially is just a good technique refined over the years. The way I do them is i divide the roof area in 2 sections, top half and bottom half, I spray the bottom half first and let it do it’s thing for 10 minutes and once it’s dried enough to a moist look instead of wet look I hit the peaks just enough to flow down into the first half that I did first. No wasted chemicals from runoff, no paying a guy to water plants, no dead plants. Collect cheque and sleep well that night. If your still getting run off with this technique you need to go back to hairdressing
I like seeing all the diy stuff everyone makes. The best one this year has to be the snow maker @Innocentbystander made. Sounds like a good thread…
I’m waiting for @Greenman to start home brewing SH i have orders coming out of my ears down this part of the world
Oh this Kentucky boy has been known to distill a drop or two in his day… but I can assure you it wasn’t SH!

@Greenman only thing stopping me is the thought of police kicking down my door at 3am and me having to explain I’m brewing sodium hypochlorite instead of supplying the local drug dealers some product
Ide love to be a fly on the wall for that discussion!
@Greenman ide give the regulars on here a shout it if it made tv.
If that’s the case then your using way to much surfactant on siding. Only need 4 ounces per 35 gallon mix if your using the correct stuff.
You probably don’t have access to that kind of stuff, only us pros do. My process I have one guy stay in a golf cart and he washes the whole house without getting out, if you can’t do that then you guys suck. My one guy does 10 houses a day (golf cart battery dies) he doesn’t even rinse the houses, just splashes and leaves.
@Patriotspwashing but you’re assuming? You haven’t asked me how much surfactant I use? How I do a roof wash without wasting chemicals and killing plants insulted you? Why? . Talk to me, I want to help you.
Why use sh if you don’t need it? Some nights I use 3 gallons of degreaser, then the next day I use soap and bleach. I don’t see any reason to waste sh if you don’t need it
I’m not even sure what the subject is let alone what you are talking about.
So scroll up. Thread’s only a few months old
This isn’t very hard buddy, write down something that makes sense to a stranger. I’ll help you if you get stuck. You can do this.
I didn’t see him mention that he uses SH on everything single thing he cleans. All I saw is where he mentioned that he uses the same amount of surfactant in his SH tank.
I didn’t even question that, yeah why don’t people just mix their surfactant in if you’re using enough to the point where you won’t have leftover that won’t be sitting for days.
