After 2 large houses I still have half left. Its a HUGE savings over bleach, and I dont think is as hard on the house. Just my experience as I don't do much pressure washing at all.

Different strokes for different folks I suppose Larry. Don't have any room for ZEP in my arsenal, but I am glad it works great for you and saves you money!

Just an update. I mixed the housewash I bought and added a little Clorox outdoor bleach. Applied with the soap nozzle (soap inlet is post pump injected), let it sit a few minutes, and rinsed it off. Worked great. I know there are better products, but I am very satisfied with the results. I am sure the bleach did most of the work, but whatever. I also pre-wet the side I was on before applying the wash.
