    Complete 2 Machine Setup

    First off, stopping in to say hey to the old alumni of PWI! After being in business since 2008, I've decided to let it all go. I am now a fiber optic tech with our local utilities company that is destined to be my profession until retirement. The PW'ing business grew from a 1 man show to a 4...

    Look what I found on top of a roof.

    Here's a pic of what a home owner tried to do before calling me. Thank goodness he stopped. I don't know what he had in mind going up another 30 ft. past where he tried this, but I'm sure it wouldn't have been good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    A little motivation-

    While reviewing this year's fiscal operating budget, and getting myself mentally ready for the upcoming residential season I came across a few bits of wisdom shared with me by fellow businessman I network with. Hope it helps someone else get focused too! 1. SET A STANDARD, TRAIN FOR AND ACHIEVE...

    The Power Of PWI

    Just to show how search engines patrol this site. I listed some air duct cleaning equipment for sale here, and I've got it sold. The only other place it was listed was craiglist, and I thought that was what the guy was looking at when were initially talking about the equipment. He asked if I...

    Online Graphics Printers

    I'm looking into getting some lettering done for my residential van. I typically would use a local provider, but I want to price shop a bit. Has anyone had experiences with some of these load up, print, & ship sites out there? Typical lettering should be cut & dry. My only concern would be...

In the...

    Any Picker's out there?

    Not talkin bout noses or plundering thru junk to find collectable antiques either. I've always wanted to learn to play acoustic guitar, so I'm starting to look into a decent starter. I know there's.$99 brand new piles of crap out there in big box stores. Music City (Nashville) being so close...

    Where not to do a Homeshow

    Set up a table yesterday at a fairly large mall for a home expo put on by a local Christian radio station. My placement was optimal, between JC Penny,Sears and the food court. Traffic flow was decent, but interest by passer-by's was just plain pitiful. People just wanted to do their shopping and...

    First Cedar Restoration

    Hey all you wood guys, give me some honest critique. I've only messed with pine decks and fence restoration jobs. Today I did this small western cedar, which was a totally different animal, siding job using restore and deck and shake brighter from espec. Customer was tickled to death, so I guess...

    Downstream Dilema

    Thought I just had an injector crap out on me, no problem so I thought. I grab another out of the war chest in the van and slap it on, no dice. So I finish up the job for the day with the stand-by x-jet. I get home and hook up both "bad" injectors (Super Suds Suckers from E-Spec) to my skid...

    Things I Learned While Cleaning

    Cleaned 16 3 story apartment breezeways, mostly college kids. Here's just a few things I learned from them and a few general observations. - If a cop lives in the complex you're supposed to spit your gum in front of his door. - You must take off the tax labels from you're bottles of alcohol...

    What are your most common employee issues?

    Starting this year I have entrusted my companies reputation to someone else other than myself, a full time employee. Business is growing, and for that I am thankfull. However it has been difficult to totally entrust another person to accomplish the standards that I have set on a job site. I...

    Anyone else used the Kohler idle down set-up?

    Just got my new Kohler 18hp with a General TS2021 gear to gear with the "idle down" feature (engine goes to idle when the water isn't flowing) from EnviroSpec last week. I took it for a trail run today on the trailer mount before mounting it in the van I'm setting up. Worked all day long and it...

    Calling All Middle TN Pressure Washers....

    We've all heard the saying "fight fire with fire". Now let's see if we can help fight water with water. In the past few days significant flooding has occurred in Middle Tennessee. Here's a video of a trailer floating down I-24 and is then struck by a car floating upside down and is destroyed...

    Residential PW'ing Van

    I'm going to be setting up a 2003 Ford Econoline with equipment to do resi washing. I'm getting tired of backing out of tight driveways onto busy roads. That and fuel consumption also, diesel 3/4 ton pulling a 16 ft tube frame, all the gear and 21hp motor running wide open all day adds up...

    Greasers Taking Over Flatwork, for now...

    It's now happened twice this week with two stores. I call ahead to let restaurant managers know when I'll be on site to clean walkways, drive-thru's, and dumpster pads on a normal 60 day schedule that was agreed on with a simple handshake. I always call ahead just to make sure that the areas I...
