Low pressure House Wash Lake Monticello, VA 22963

This home had a bit of an algae problem in Lake Monticello. We cleaned it with low pressure and no ladders against the siding.

If you washed this without a ladder against the house, how did you get everything?

A combination of pump, hose and tip size allow for that to work. I can reach the peak of any 2 1/2 story home from the ground without more than 70 psi.

Nice work.


What size tips were you using? Did you just use a chemical wash first? Let it soak and then hit it with a 0* nozzel or what?

Sorry to take so long to reply. I got busy and this slipped by.
I use a chemical wash with 40 tips a fatboy pump, let it soak and rinse with a garden hose.

X-Jets allow you to do the same thing. It just attaches to the end of the gun.
