I’m going to add either a soft wash system or a power wash set up to my services next year. I’ll be buying it this year, before the end of the year.
We have a lot of issues with algae, lichens, roof algae, and the like. I live in an area that has lot of lakes. The people are also the type that are very concerned with chemicals and it polluting the lakes.
I don’t know which way to go with the purchase. IF I buy a new power washer, it will be a 4 GPM pump. At this point I don’t want to build a trailer with a big water tank. I have a small enclosed trailer or I could buy a small open trailer to do either set up with. Drive way access tends to be an issue, so no big hogging trailers will work.
With a power washer, I could buy an X Jet to do roofs.
I’ll be upfront, I don’t want to do TONS of power washing, so this is why I thought maybe soft washing would be a better route. I could get roofs, siding, decks and whatever else. There are several power washers that service this area, but not many at all doing soft washing.
Right now I have a small 2.5 GPM power washer that I’ll do decks, or something small like that. I don’t do houses or roofs.
What direction would you guys go? I have some money to invest, just not an unlimited amount I’m willing to toss away. I might go in, up to 2K to get what I need to go at it. (not including chems)
Bear in mind, I’m pretty busy now with windows, and am NOT looking to power wash parking lots, or tie up all day doing power washing/soft washing at this point. I just want to capture more dollars and keep more services tied to me, rather than let the opportunity for someone else to come in.
TIA for your input.
