Use For A Zero Degree Tip Nozzle?

I have heard and seen the damage that a zero degree tip nozzle can do. From blasting away at stucco to a ill informed applicator trying to "clean" up the stain on a deck.

Besides the horror stories out there..and there are many, what use do you have for the red tip in your arsenal? For me, I like blowing out downspouts with it. With that said...do you as a matter of practice 1st blow out the downspout before you work the gutter line?

Let hear what others use the "Red" one for...anybody.

Oh...since we are talking about gutters/downspouts...anyone still use a shepherds hook?

Great for dispersing vagrants late at night. If that doesn't work, my back-up Glock is always in my holster.

I have only used mine for the same thing. Got a ball valve setup and I have ana attachment which I made from an old hose which a 20ft length hose with a male qc on one end and a reduced femal qc that I have the red tip connected on the end and I feed the line down the downspout and turn on the ball valve. Havent found a spout that I coulddnt get unclogged easily.

When you are removing paint from a home - sometimes a zero red tip is great if you are at least 15 feet away from what you are trying to remove.

I can honestly say I've never used the red tip. That said, I use zero degree tips all the time - for downstreaming distances. In fact, I have 4 different tips, depending on distance and strength of mix.

mmmm...great comments so far. Makes me kinda wonder why the "Red" was even invented :confused:
Carlos,

We like 0 degree tips. After customers try and strip or clean their own wood, and tear the living bejesus out of it, we get the call. Its good for new business!

Carlos G, the only reason I can think of to use the red tip (0 degree at rated pressure) would be to knock down nests and maybe pop gum off of sidewalks.

I actually have a customer that almost lost her foot washing her driveway. Pulled the trigger with the gun pointed at her (bare) foot. Injection injuries are bad, took almost a year to heal.
