I was talking to a fellow washer not long ago, and he was telling me he got a siamese kit so that he could run two machines at the same time into a single pressure line. This idea seems like an awesome way to increase GMP.
I have an 8 GPM/3500 machine and a 4 GPM/4000 machine.
1.Can this be done? It would be great to have 12 GPM for larger flatwork. BAM, 48 inch surface cleaner.
2. I can’t get my head around how the PSI of the water flow from each machine would not “fight” each other. On one end you have 4000 psi coming in and the other is 3500 psi.
3. If this in some way works, using a 275 gal tote, do you T the single water line out to each machine or would you install a second bulkhead fitting so each machine pulls from their respective bulkhead? Currently I have a single 2 inch bulkhead>1 1/2 inch feed line to my 8 gpm.
Does this idea in some form actually work? How do you set it up?
