I don't have any pictures but we use them to blast out HVAC condensation lines that have become clogged.

I won't be in your contest but I have a few to add. 1) We have sold them to zoos where they wash the elephants and hippos. They love it. 2) Sold about a hundred trailer mounted rigs with modified tips for killing weeds and ant hills to National Parks where they were no longer allowed to use weed or insect chemicals. 3) Sold one to the NOAA station in Antarctica to blast snow off buried equipment and warm up the block so they could start it up.

I am not sure if you want to know what one can be used for on a remote roof at night when the crew remembers to bring up a plastic bag for emergencies but forgets toilet paper.

When that happens they will thank you for the ball valve and the detachable wand.

Not saying that has ever happened. Lol

I once sold a used machine to a young engineering student who told me he uses them to make a mountain of artificial snow in his back yard every winter so he can snow board off his roof.

Cracker Barrel GM had us Pressure Wash fireplace in restraunt and also the bathrooms. We even used surface cleaner on red tile floor in restraunt. We do it annually now and get a great free breakfast when done.

Skinny guys like Josh and I use ours for self protection in case a thug gets to close to us. Nothing works better than a 0 degree tip.

I've been asked to heat water up for concrete plants when furnace has been broken. I've thawed an auger full of human waste that was frozen solid......

We've supplied hot water to Costco when water main broke. We've pumped hot water into hospital under construction so they could take their infra red camera to find where the water lines were. Thawed lots of equipment that was frozen to the ground. Thawed ice off of a hockey rink as it built up behind the goal. Washed inside wine vats. We've sent line jetters inside of a house ducts to clean them after a fire. Washed lots of fire retardant and gel off houses after forest fires. Pressured up natural gas lines for testing. Washed many man holes for inspection of telecommunications lines. Jetter lines down pipes to hook onto telecommunication lines so they can be pulled up.

How's that? I could keep going......

Cleaned solid concrete out of condenser coils on giant HVAC rental units after they got concrete dust blown into them for days then accidentally got wet down with the dust arrestance trucks.

Lol. I always wanted to get on a skateboard and see if 8 GPM at 4000 PSI would push me. I think it would.

Supplied warm water to a tile guy for grout. No water anywhere near so they paid us to sit there all day and fill buckets with warm water when needed.

Thats just about as gross as the time I had to wash the meat off of a moose head. I'll never EVER do that again.
