    So confused about chemicals

    Howdy from Texas yaw... I'm new this business. Long story short I purchased a high pressure rig to help a young man get into business. I'm fighting over a couple of things... exactly what chemicals do I need to stock and d i need to invest in a low pressure or a softwash system? Here is the list I have compiled as far as chemicals... Barc F9, F9 efflow, wd-25, EBC, Dragon Juice, 10-15% Sodium hypochlorite ( bleach ). Are there other chemicals that can be purchased that have oxalic acid for removing rust? What makes the Dragon Juice so expensive? What is the best soap? Do i need roof snot... seems like a lot of products, just trying to narrow down what I really need to cover most residential jobs. I want to do roofs once i figure all of this out.
    Thank you

    Keith as explained at my school this is what I keep on hand...other than Bleach

    Roof Snot, Dragon Juice, Red Raider, F9 Barc and Efflo, Worlds Best Graffiti Products. Thats pretty much all we keep in stock...anything else is ordered on an as needed per job basis.

    If you are going to do roofs you will need a dedicated pump system. Like either a Air Diapragm or 12V system a shown here at the school.

    Thank you. Question. Do you mix the EBC with any other chemical?

    I am also new! I am getting a trailer built in a couple of weeks. My question is, Why do you have to have a dedicated pump for roof wash? I thought the main thing is chemical ratio? Am I wrong?

    Hey Keith

    Obviously I have not visited this forum much.

    Yes...you can mix it with Bleach but beyond that it is a stand along cleaner...meaning you don't need to add anything. Greasers sometimes will add "potash" when doing hoods with ebc sometimes.

    Sorry about the delayed response

    Stephen,

    You need the roof pump because you cannot mix you chems strong enough by downstreaming for the ratio needed to clean most roofs. House washes and other light mixes, yes, but roof washing no.
