Before i start i want to say that i am very happy to finally try to start a business here in my city in mexico. There is no one doing this so hopefully i will be lucky to get some contracts, any advice is well appreciated
Hello again guys, as you know i had been trying to get my used PW to work… i bought it used and had to replace seals in the pump and general
Maintence to the engine. I am using a 4000 psi 4.3gpm cold water machine.
I just received it last tuesday and did a test in my house and was ok, but today a washed a friends small patio for free (he paid some beer and pizza) , but i wanted to test everything out. I know you guys are professionals feel free to correct me, but do it nicely hahaha
This is what i did
-wet the floor with water,
applied with black nozzle and using the injector from the pump outlet (downstream i think its how you call it) shampoo and degreaser mixed in a bucket
pressure washed with green and yellow nozzles
I found it hard to work on corners cause the dirty water flies all over the place, i never thought it was gonna make your hand tired after pressing the water gun.
Here are some pics, feel free to bully me
Thank you all
Congrats on getting the ball rolling. That’s a really really nice first machine. Those V-twin Vanguards are sweet. I think we were rebuilding our pumps together the other day which makes us brothers now. Keep on keeping on!
I looks OK. As long as your friend was happy.
If it was me, I would apply bleach (SH) before washing. The soaps are fine, but if you want the black crud to melt off, use bleach.
Second, If you are going to be doing a lot of hard surface cleaning, you absolutely need to get a surface cleaner.
I can say the 95% of them are made with cement bricks (the ones that have 3 squred holes in the middle) and then covered by a thin layer of cement and then painted … will the bleach/water mix bring the paint down?
I want to do fleet washing i think its less delicate than house but i need to be ready for any job
I am in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, (the stat’s capital). Its 3 hours south of the border with mcallen and brownsville tx. Sometimes you do 2 1/2 hours driving at 90-100 mph, you have to drive fast cause thats one of the most dangerous highways in our state .
I was looking for a nice but affordable one. I found this GP Hammerhead 18" for $289, free shipping from water cannon. I couldn’t find a better value buy for a surface cleaner. It works really well too. I know it’s not the Benz of surface cleaners, but definitely the most bang for your buck in my opinion.
