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.
I don't use pressure washers for houses anymore. We pay $3 a gallon for bleach. Mix 15 in a 50 tank of water. Uses about 30 for an average house. In and out in 2 hours $700+ lol

I think Ive done less than 6 pressure washing jobs, and only for existing customers, I do do a lot for my self.


Sounds like you got a real nice set up.

For me too spend 90$ for bleach when I can literally spend 4$ for a product that that works great for me is a no brainer. I never let my properties get too messed up...........usually.

The cost of labor it should take to scrub a property with a brush, would far outweigh the cost of bleach.
