After aprrox. 8 months in this business, I am still searching for a reliable chemical mixture for hoiuse washing. Up to now, I have been using a mixture of bleach and liquid Tide applied through a downstream injector. I am not satisfied with this mixture. I feel the bleach is too weak at times, and I find myself reapplying the chemicals over and over in order for the mildew/algae to be removed. I especially have problems with 2nd level cleaning. The mixture is not strong enough. I have also used Limonene. Works good; however, if not rinsed quickly enough, it leaves hard to remove streaks on the glass. Should I try chlorine? What lifts diert good? Can any of you share some suggestions on what you use and your mixtures? I am tired of wasting money and time.
Thanks and God bless!!!

Hey wildman,
What kind of dilution rate can you get with that? Do you run it straight through the downstream? or do you dilute it?
Thanks John.

Maz, what strength of bleach are you using? Gallons in a grocery store are at most 5.25% sodium hypochlorit, but if you buy from an industrial chemical supplier in 55 gal drums, it is 12% to 15% sodium hypochlorit. Used with a good chemical injector one application should do the job. Only in cold wheather should you need a second application. Second and even third story cleaning should not be a problem with the right size chemical and rinse nozzles, using a 4 foot wand, with at least 3K psi @ 4 gpm.

Hey Harold, just wondering what kind of nozzle are you using to get up to 3 stories. I have a X-Jet but am unable to get that high. I also have 4gpm@3000psi.
