    The right tips and higher flow machines. We generally shoot 2 story homes from the ground. First apply the proper detergent blend and let sit for 5-10 minutes. After that, it is a simple rinse down. Of course there is more to it than that but that is the jist of it.

    This an example pic... That stream is only 40 psi, but 5.6 gpm. The FLOW is what allows it to shoot that far and the low pressure allows the injector to pull detergent.

    The Other pics are of other example of the right equipment and use of higher flow to clean faster and more thorough. The surface cleaner use both flow and pressure to clean a 28 inch path easily and 10 times faster than just a wand.
