    20hp 8 gpm Pressure Pro.

    It's not the equipment that makes a difference... It's the knowledge of water flow and chemistry.

    Most homes washed in about an hour cleaner than the folks using high pressure and spending all day to do it.

    So how do you get 100 psi out of that? And do you get 8 gpm when using 100 psi?

    Are all of those nozzles low pressure? If so, what is the difference between them? I viewed the youtube link. How do you get the water to the second story of a house with that pistol type wand?

    Thanks for the info. Is the ball valve with a garden hose and using house water/pressure or is it attached to your pressure washer? I've tried a ball valve with a garden hose and it won't reach the top of our 2 story house.

    That's on the pressure washer. Down-streaming soap.

    FCPWLLC, Lets see a pic of your rig! if you don't mind. I'm looking into getting into power washing also. What type of chemicals are you using on vinyl siding
