Today’s quote


#1

Looks like I’ll be breaking down and buying a telescopic wand finally. No way I’m hitting that with a shooter on a 3’ lance, lol


#2

8gpm will hit that all day long.

What are you running?


#3

My telescopic won’t draw soap. I only use it for rinsing tough spots if I have to.


#4

Xjet + Telscopic wand has gotten me out of some rare tough ones.


#5

Ahhh X-Jet - I DS, so that’ll be why :+1:t2:


#6

I ds mainly as well but that’s one of those rare cases the xjet is good to have in the arsenal.


#7

That I’d like to see. Probably 50’ or more from a safe standing position to the uppermost areas to be washed. The ground slopes away steeply from the foundation.


#8

Ruh roh. Wonder why that is? Too much restriction in the hose?

Now I’m contemplating how I could rig up a different solution. Maybe 3 of those 6’ lances linked together, and run through the top 3 sections of my wfp to stabilize them… :smirk:


#9

If there’s no wind you’re ok…but I mean zero wind. If there’s even a slight breeze it won’t happen. I run the same machine and I can hit about 45-50 feet with my GB shooter tip on 3ft lance with no wind.


#10

Well, they just accepted my quote. So looks like I gotta figure something out :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#11

Telescoping pole won’t draw soap through a DS like mentioned above. Tried it many different ways no luck.

Like @harold said .telescoping pole with x jet has gotten me out of lift rentals and 40 ft ladders a few times.


#12

Can you walk below the bottom windows?

Or are you talking about washing from the bottom of the hill?


#13

I love to come up with solutions for problems I do it all day long… how about if you get an extender pole for like window washing such as like a Unger, put a trigger assembly on it or a ball valve run a whip line to the top and hose clamp the hose wit a quick connect…
Basically just build your own extend a pole with the correct size hose so it’ll still pull from the downstream injector


#14

Any idea why you can’t DS with telescoping pole?


#15

Nooooooooooo!!! :wink:


#16

Hose inside wand is usually 1/4 inch. To much restriction


#17

That’s weird…I had a 12ft yellow noodle that I used a number of times with my 4/4 and a j-rod to DS when it was windy. I hated that 4/4…it was terrible at reaching heights like 3 stories so I had to use the yellow noodle at times. It did pull soap though.


#18

That will be tough between those buildings at a full 3 stories with only about 10 feet between buildings. A lot of HW mix coming back down on your face that day…lol


#19

I’d hit it from the porch😬


#20

Suggestions?
