    Here is some help:
    1- Take a 5 Gallons pail and put about 0.5 Gallon of warm water in it.
    2- Add two 8oz. scoops of Simple Cherry and shake it well to dissolve it.
    3- Top the pail with 12% Chlorine (may be available at your local ACE Hardware)
    4- Downstream this solution on the stucco with a Hi-Draw down-streamer (ref: 6740 GP FIXED INJECTOR 2.1mm HI-DRAW) and a 2540 or 0040 (if two story) nozzle.
    5- Let dwell about 15 minutes and rinse with a 2520 or 0020 nozzle
    6- Repeat steps 4 and 5 if needed.
    7- Have a 5 gallon pail of F-13 Gutter Grenade delivered to my door for helping you achieve professional results and making your life so much easier.

    Simple Cherry, F-13, down-streamer and nozzles are available from Bob at http://www.pressuretek.com

    Most of us are reading and learning more so we don't bid on work we don't already know how to do.

    How did you sell the job, not knowing how to do it?


    Ooops .... nevermind, just saw your website and your picture. Dudes got some guns... LOL Seriously, I think you should have asked these questions before bidding. Happy frog answered it fine. May need a stronger solution on Stucco and a little more pressure needed.

    FCPWLLC. You see how you are :laugh:
    I was keeping some trade secrets for myself and you almost gave them away :nono:
    Didn't want him to keep the F-13 for himself or have enough pressure to make holes in the stucco :laugh:

I know how to do the job and i already have your genreal chlorine and common power wash detergents...now if you can give me any good tips on what you find to work good on stucco id appreciate it and if not then thats fine too.
