    Question on Monier Tile

    I have a house wash next week that has an issue... The house has Monier tile roof and it appears to be leaching out and staining the aluminum flashing.

    Pump Configuration

    My pump runs fine. I have a 20 hp Honda motor running a Legacy Pump at 3500 psi and 5.6 gpm. Am I able to replace that pump with one that runs 8 gpm? Too much for the motor? I thought I saw some units for sale with the equivalent motor and 8 gpm.
