most likely straight, thats the way I have dont it in the past with that stuff... Its not like a weak 12% its weaker then weak, at least the stuff I had from Sams was that way

Someone mentioned that a chemist friend explained that 6% straight is still not equal in potency than 12% cut in half - even though numerically you would think so.

12% is still 12% no matter how much you cut it. The same goes for any percentage. The SH doesn't get weaker, the mix gets weaker.

I have used straight Clorox Summer Showers I think it is and Dawn flowery stuff. It works real good. I have never had a problem with the roof coming clean.

Go to the top right where it says "settings" click on that. Once you get on that page, about halfway down on the left it says edit signature. Click that and enter the info.
If your still having a problem let me know.

Terry, household bleach will not work very well, even with TSP added the so called "A.R.M.A. roof cleaning method" unless getting a Sun Tan is your objective! You need to find Sodium Hypochlorite 12.5 percent known as Pool Chlorine or Liquid Pool Shock, dilute it down, and mix with your favorite surfactant. It is always best to rinse a roof after allowing the roof cleaning solution enough dwell time to clean and KILL the roof algae. Give it 1/2 an hour, then rinse the roof, one side at a time, being sure to rinse the rinsed off chemicals off the plants, and well into the ground, below the roof line! This means you must FLOOD the side of the house you just rinsed. Failure to do so can result in dead plants.

We mix 40 gallons of 12% and 60 gal water with half a big jug of Joy lemon scent. I think this mix is very strong and will clean the blackest of roofs. Around these parts we have all gutters on homes. Our protocal is to coat the roof with not much runoff, saturate all the landscape but we still replace bushes. WHY?? This year we are bagging the downspouts and collecting runoff.
