    not too bad huh for a first time ever using any of this new equipment.Patio is 22x24 ft and took me about an hour over all,including set up and tear down time.Looks much better in person then these pics.

    once again i didnt have the right chemical,that rust has been their for over 6 years so i think it came out pretty good,it was just nice getting used to the pw and the surface cleaner...i love the surface cleaner it works real nice and should be a money maker.
