No New Posts Pumps are driving me crazy!! ( 1 2 )
Happy Thanksgiving to all, well I`m having a flamin` nightmare lately!! I`ve been cleaning roofs the Non-Pressure way for just over a year now ( probably 150 roofs ) and as opposed to the splash and dash with the cash crews, we take time and care with covering plants using lawn sprinklers before durin...

Went to pressure tek and ordered the 5800 del package that they have. My thought is that this is better for me starting out and when I get start getting more jobs I'll be looking into the bigger and better setups. Thanks for your help guys.

No New Posts The TRUTH About Air Compressors (Preview)
What I am going to tell you is this, a bigger air compressor is better for air operated roof cleaning pumps. We have never used the all flow 3/8 pumps, and the smaller 5 to 6 hp Rigid type air compressors may be OK for them ? But for any 1/2 or above air operated roof cleaning pump, they will always work much be...

No New Posts Fatboy Pump Question ( 1 2 )
I recently bought a new pump and accumulator fro Bob. This thing is wicked. I mean I even get a slight kickback when I turn this thing on. So I bought an accumulator for my other truck/Fatboy so I can do away with the compressor, but it just doesnt have the same kick. I played with the adjustment on the pump b...

No New Posts Electric Compressor (Preview)
One of my trucks uses a air pump with a 12v back up plumbed in.  The other has only a 12v but I was thinking of adding an air pump.  Was thinking of running a heavy duty electric compressor, maybe like a 15amp unit.  I know there may be times when an electric compressor  may need a few seconds to catch up durin...

No New Posts Delavan Parts
One of my Delavans (a 5850) is in need of a new seal, the little one about the size of a dime that sits under the pressure switch.  I've been searching the net but cannot find reference to it anywhere.  I tried to call Lori (because I know she hangs out there at different hours) but there wasn't an answer.  A...

No New Posts New pump problems ( 1 2 3 4 )
New Flojet pentaflex 7 pumps strong for a few seconds then drops pressure and doesn't pump at all but can be heard cycling.  Shut off and wait a minute and sometimes it pumps up (accumilator) strong again and shuts off as its suppose to.  Shoots good for a minute then drops off again.  Seems almost lik...

No New Posts What the Hell!!!!!!!!!!! ( 1 2 3 )
I had my Delavan 5850 pump for about 3 weeks now and tested it last Friday, for the first time with a few issues with blowing fuses.  So I double checked the Marine battery and it had a full charge. I pulled it out and finally hook the 175 ft hose to the hose reel and hooked up the pump to it and It ran for about 2 m...

No New Posts all flo
The last few roofs I did before I went on vacation my All Flo kept freezing up? I shot the WD everywhere you can think of but after I would cut back the pressure I would start having issues and have to have my ground guy stand right next to it & unplug the air line from the pump. Anywhere from 1-2 times a roo...
