I’m looking to build one of the nozzles, that have 4 tips welded together, for softwashing. Has anyone built one themselves? I see they are for sale, but I know I can put one together for a lot cheaper.
My question is, what degree tips would I need for a 4gpm 4k psi machine?
I’ve found this info from pressure tek, just not sure how to decifer it.
THE 4 GPM KIT INCLUDES: 0040(SOAP HIGH),0010(RINSE HIGH),2540(SOAP LOW),2510(RINSE LOW)
What dont you understand? Do you downstream? The numbers are the spray pattern and orifice sizes. First two numbers are spray pattern, last two are orifice size. 00 equals straight stream, 25 equals 25 degree fan. 40’s are low pressure to pull soap, 10’s are high pressure to rinse with.
As you get into low pressure washing more, you’ll develop your own preferences for which tips you want. You can always change out the tips once you’ve welded the nozzle plugs together.
I have a 3 way: 2540 (first floor), 0540 (second floor), and a size 40 shooter nozzle (2.5 floors and up). I don’t use higher pressure tips for building washing, as I deal with a lot of oxidized surfaces.
I don’t weld, so I just cut one holder off of the jrod.
With the nozzles it’s like $35… so I can’t wrap my brain around making one. I use a short gun almost exclusively and haven’t pulled the trigger on buying it because I don’t know if it’ll work in the short gun without hitting the front of it. That and carrying 2 nozzles in my back pocket and one in the gun has been plenty good enough until now. But c’mon… if you want one it’s $35.00… 10% of a regular residential job.
