    Hey, nobody told me we had a choice, I did a 40k lot today. Nice & clean, hardly any cracks. Got to use the bar on about 85% of it. If only I had air in my truck................... well I might not have come out to do the 15%. Had a good brezzz so all dried fine, redy 4 rain.

    Manufacturer recommends not using this product above 27 c or 80 f with high humidity . I would rather postpone jobs for a few days and stay cool . Ha Ha

    Hi all,

    I am new to the site as well as sealing. I started 6 weeks ago and things have been progressivelying improving with business.

    I use jetblack and have noticed that I have been getting dominant lines when spraying so I have had to roll those out.

    Any suggestions how to improve the spraying or is it normal?

    I also what is the best way to get clients, my primary method is door knocking and social media ads. I can't seem to retain much via social media.

    I am using a #2 tip that Supply Man (in Barrie) provided me with. I believe it is stainless steel.

    How do you price your jobs out at? 10c/15c/20c? etc.

    Stainless tips are very good , Brass tips are not . Try adjusting the pressure up or down a bit while spraying , same with the RPM of the engine . Did you mean Sprayman in Barrie ? Where are you from ?

    I use flat -faced high pressure quick connect fittings on my guns . I still shut off the engine when changing but makes things a lot easier . Do you buy Jet Black in Hamilton ?
