Best method I’ve found… Once you make some money get a bigger super soaker to help with rinsing.

So in the interest of getting your thread on track, can you describe what you are trying to do? What are you trying to clean? What have you already tried? Thanks.

Looking to apply cleaning solution to wood siding more efficiently. I have been using a backpack sprayer but it has very little spread and only reaches one story.

We have had very good luck with this spreader at the ball field for seed and fert… we filled tires with foam and havent had to worry about them.

Generally the lowest cost effective solution to apply and rinse is a 4gpm belt or gear driven PWer. If the cost is too high, group your jobs together and rent a unit from Home Depot. If you’re using a backpack sprayer be sure to NOT put it on your back. It’ll leak before you realize it causing chemical burns to your back, behind, and legs. :astonished:

Would he benefit from a homebrew 12v system?

Rinsing with a garden hose isn’t efficent or cost effective in my opinion. A PWer solves both needs.

Being that it’s wood siding I’ve avoided using a pressure washer on it as I would hate to strip paint, gouge boards, or loosen caulk. I was very successful doing the one wall the cottage owner wanted done by applying the cleaning solution and then hosing it down. I did intend on using a brush once the cleaning solution was applied, though simply allowing the solution to sit for a few minutes was effective enough. The cottage owner now wants the rest of the cottage done. I am simply looking for a way to distribute the cleaning solution in a larger quantity and at a lengthened reach.

I guess one of those electric Fimco tank/sprayer wheeled combos, although not sure what your ‘solution’ is.

@Chris, @Alex, @Jordie: we really need to get the search feature back up and running.

Doubt it would help.

Call a professional to clean wood siding.

You use a pressure washer but you do it at low pressure. There is virtually little or no danger of damaging the surface. DC is right. If you want an alternative it’s an agricultural sprayer. It’ll be much slower and if you’re doing this for profit less profitable but other than speed will work well.

It works. Maybe clear your cache.
