    Injector Not Working at the Pump

    I have a GP 3-5 GPM Chemical Injector that works great after the ball valve and before my wand, or just using the ball valve and then the injector. When I attach the injector after my pump and between my pigtail to my hose reel (where I see most others put theirs)....it doesn't draw anymore. I...

    Oxalic Acid

    I'm fixing to use the safer acid, oxalic. I first am looking for somewhere to purchase it besides the little 12 oz bottle at the box stores. The second thing I need to know is the best ratio. Thanks, Chad

    Chemical Injector

    Im assuming this chemical injector will do the same thing and work well hooked in after my ball valve and just behind the wand. Its still after the pump and before the gun, so am I right? http://www.powerwash.com/general-pump-fixed-downstream-injector-kit.html

    Replacement Pump

    I have a one year old Simpson 3800 PSI, 3.5 GPM washer. I’ve had problems out of the unloader valve and losing pressure sometimes and flow. I pulled the pump off and all the valves and rings look good. I’m thinking it’s the unloader only, but was wanting to upgrade the pump anyways and thought...

    SH Predicament

    Okay, I’ve been getting more and more calls for roof cleaning in my area. I don’t advertise roofs but I’ve done a few light one by down streaming chemical with only a ball valve, no pressure washing the roof. In fixing to order the soft soft wash kit from Pressure Tek, advertise, and hit this...

    Down Streaming

    Right now I'm using a Pressure Pro low pressure injector right before my gun with a two story nozzle kit and your standard 65 degree soap nozzle for up close spraying. I'm wanting to add a chemical tank to my trailer and batch mix my solution, then pipe it in and down stream it from the...

    Multi-Tip Nozzle

    I'm looking for the brand name of a nozzle that has 4 tip sizes all in one, its solid metal and not a cheap one you rotate the nozzle around. I've seen it in several videos, mainly soft wash videos, but cannot find them online anywhere. What are they and are they worth the money? How heavy are they?

    Washer Stalling

    My washer is about six weeks old, its a Simpson 3800 PSI and 3.5 GPM pump. It starts and runs fine motor wise, but as soon as I close the ball valve or release the trigger on the wand and it goes to build pressure it falls on it's face. I'm narrowing this down to the pump itself, but what is...

    Chemical Application

    So, for a long time I've found it easier to use a pump sprayer to get my chemical on most houses. It I recently saw a video of a dude applying roof snot with an air sprayer. I found a small 9" spray gun online I could get for 20 bucks and use it to apply chemical. He said his was running at 90...

    20" Whirl Away Surface Cleaner

    I have a surface cleaner that is only few weeks old. I noticed it had a bad wobble to it compared to the others I've had in the past. I flipped it over and held the bar while engaging water flow and there is a small hole in the swivel assembly that is shooting water out? I don't think this is...

    Pressure Washing "Surging"

    When my washer is not engaged and flowing water and is just sitting on the trailer idling while I spray chemical its making a "surging" sound. Like it revs up and down and up and down, but when I flow water it's smooth and has plenty or pressure and GPM. I'm leaning towards the motor because it...

    Airless Sprayer or Rollers and Brush?

    I pressure washed decent sized deck today, 600+ square foot, and it was nasty. The end results look good so far. I have to go back in a few days and stain it. I am not real familiar with wood, I have only done a handful of decks in the last 5 years only because I'm not familiar with them. I am...

    Wooden Porch Flooring

    I pressure washed a house today and they had a nice wrap around porch with wood flooring. When I got done with all the vinyl they asked if I could do the wood deck flooring around the porch as well. I have been washing for 4 years but always shyed away from wood, it just seemed like to much...

    F-13 Mixture

    Unloader-3300 PSI 3.2 GPM

    I have had a small prosumer portable washer for 3 years, recently the unloaded spring broke inside. I didn't know that's all the problem was at the time however I already broke the unloaded and have gotten the old one off of the pump to replace. My question is do all of these have the same bolt...
