To add to the original question, I really love this paraphrase I heard from a Hydrotek salesman at a seminar in CA: "Cleaning concrete with a pressure washer wand is like mowing your yard with a weedeater."
That says it all, doesn't it?

Joseph Rodgers, we are in the same boat! Don't feel alone, my friend. But remember, the only stupid question is the one that didn't get asked. Asking questions is how we learn, and Doug told me to ask away! They appreciate the give and take, and we can all learn from the experience.

Pete, thank you for all your help and sharing your videos. I like the music in them, but have to say it is an awful lot like the music in my Step Dad's funeral video, and brings back a whole lot of sentimentality on my part :-(. I tried to reply to one of your posts and couldn't post. Will do so when I find it again. Doug told me to always put a check mark in the "Stay logged in" box. Now I know why... Hopefully this post can go through.

I really like this forum, and plan to pick your brains for a long, long time!
My memory seems to be getting better. I remember 2012 like it was yesterday...
We're all still learning,

I took a more time to make it look better but I stuck to my bid. They thought it looked great. The best part is that after we got it cleaned and looking good they had the employe do the regular maintenance, while on the clock sometimes you can win.
