    Well after practicing on my house, my in-laws and my neighbors houses, I went out and did a couple of jobs for paying customers. I rented a machine and I am not positive on the specs, but I believe it was a 7HP, 3000psi, 4gpm machine. I think. I used the Lowes special...Krud Kutter. I used the mix for the house and the concrete mix for the table and driveway (obviously). The first job was a house wash with lots of mildew on one side and just general dirt on the rest. The customer was very happy with the result and asked me to do it every year. She is also a lawn and plow customer.

    The second job was for a party prep job for a regular customer. I did the deck, the patio furniture, a concrete table set, and the driveway.

    BTW I thought it was a lot of fun, and when it's 90 degrees, it beats the heck out of digging.
