New setup, any suggestions

Crayons always help the situation.

The pull depends on the proportioner design, where did you get the plans for that? There are two good threads on her about proportioners, one by a guy who sells them, and another by a guy who was building one but left the industry during its trial period.
I’m not good with names and can’t look it up this instant.

Also that SH tank will probably leak eventually, you don’t want any holes but rather pull chems from the top.

I don’t use an air diaphram pump so I can’t help you there.

Before you purchase a PW be sure to read this forum for a few months to find out which one to buy

Appreciate the info!

Almost finished with air pump setup, let me know if you see anything that will cause me problems

I guess I don’t know the secret handshake…

Looks good, have you tested it? If so are you pulling what you should? Do you have notches to mark specific percentages?


#6

that whole contraption will cause you issues. PVC will not last when you have 12.5% bleach going through it.


#7

Been using for a couple of weeks without any issues, but I have been rinsing after each use. What is recommend to take the place of pvc?

PVC is fine for SH . You win not likely find a pressure washer truck or trailer that doesn’t have pvc and chlorine on it. Sch 80 pvc especially. I can’t tell to how many years I have on some pvc fitting that sh runs through every day.
