Long time lurker, first time poster.
Backstory: Never done a roof before, bid a job so high I was hoping to get turned down. Bid was accepted. Full deposit to pay for equipment and supplies. Gonna buy from pressuretek as far as I know.
Help me make the right choice with equipment and proper planning please. I will be practicing on sheds and family members roofs first.
I plan to get the fatboy 7gpm 5/8 poly pump in a box, accumulator, and backup 5800 pump in case the first pump craps out on the job for whatever reason. Trash bags for gutters, and taping / bagging all electrical items on the exterior. 50 gallon garbage bin for soap. Roof snot, and elemonator.
Using a pump up sprayer and m5xjet in case both pumps break. Also bringing a garden hose attachment in case I need to rinse.
How I plan to do the project.
Tape everything off and bag gutters, clean gutters / downspouts, have hired help apply the soap to the roof from the ladder and if needed tie off and get on the roof. Reapply chemical until all areas look clean while I water the lawn and plants. Do not rinse, speak with the home owner, grab check and follow up after the first rainfall.
I am going to use pool cleaner 10% 20 gallons, 29 gallons water, Your recomendations for roof snot and elemonator.
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. I will be speaking with pressuretek before my purchase tomorrow and will be reading a bit on here or watching videos on techniques.
