Off topic but if that were true why would the EPA force water utilities to dechlorinate tap water prior to dumping it in the environment.

We use 12.5% sh or 68% ch

Ch is supposed to be safer. But so far I hate it

We found that CH leaves a film behind and needs tons of rinsing.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with SH. Using anything else is a waste o fmoney.

Yep that's why I'm not happy with it. It seems to pack less of a punch as well. Warmer water and agitation is supposed to help with the film. As well as a paint sock and filter basket for the powder

The nice thing is there's less of a chance of vegetation damage using ch, but so far the cons out weigh the pros

I might mess with it a little more, but so far not happy.

I know Ill get bashed, but I pressure wash all my properties atleast once a year. I was spending a ton of $$$$ on bleach. So I tried this http://www.homedepot.com/p/ZEP-128-o...S128/202056507 and haven't use bleach since. I mix it in a 5 gallon bucket and use a nice soft brush too scrub, and most of the time I don't need to even pressure wash, which is real nice for me, since Im the one who has to do the painting also.
