    Hello all,

    Great site with some great info. I was wondering how everyone bids powerwashing boats? I live close to the water and think this would be a great quick hit. Is an accurate estimate .15 a ft? Please let me know.

    Also, is a John Deere 3000 psi, 4 gpm sufficient for strictly residental? Can most houses even supply 4 gpm or should I bring a 55 gallon drum? Any help would be appreciated. OOH RAH!!!

    3000 PSI/4.0 Gal. is enough for most jobs.
    You can use a 35 Gal. tank with a floating valve to prevent pump starvation when unsure about residential water pressure.

    He will set you up for proper nozzles (important) and chemicals.
    You better not use to much pressure and carry good GL insurance...
    I stay away from boats and airplane because of liability...
