Cleaning Surface Cleaner Skirts

I noticed on my SC that I have accumulated dirt/grime/dirt/leaves/dirt and more dirt on the skirt of the surface cleaner.

After each job I make every effort to rinse down the skirt and try to keep it clean as much as possible but rinsing it only does half the job.

Anyway,

here is a quick but yet simple way to get all the "stuff" that has found it's way into and on the skirt of your SC OFF or Cleaned up.

I take a drill bit or something similar and just rub it back and forth on the skirt area. Make sure the skirt is dry. The agitation causes the embedded material to loosen up and literally fall off the skirt. **See Pics Below**.

Anyway, I am sure there are other methods that people use. Best of Luck.

Carlos, I flip mine over after every 2-3 jobs and spray the BT200 5oz per gallon, and it keeps it from building up. Eats all the gunk before it can build up. I especially do it on weekends when it is gonna sit a couple days. I keep up a pump up sprayer in my truck for that and other quick cleanup jobs.

Hey...this is a good idea. I may try that!

We disconnect the ball valve when finished with the surface machines and then just give them a high pressure rinse Top and Bottom and then store them away.

Here's a quick brain shut down one----A few years ago I couldn't figure for the life of me why a swival on one of my surfers went bad so fast. It spun when you pushed it but it did nothing when water ran thru it. A total mental meltdown. So later that Day I ordered another Swival that cost around $175 with extra shipping because I always needed at least 2 machines working in case one breaks down.

So I put the new swival in and same problem the bars won't spin with water running thru it.

Anyone want to take a guess why this happened??

Have no idea, but that would've made a great contest question. I'm stumped.

John...as Doug mentioned this would be great for another contest. Start a thread on this where the other contest is going.

Prize: Storm Drain Cover from HydroTek...I will post up more details about this but HydroTek is the manufacturer so you know it will be a good and durable product!

We will wait for the new thread on this John by you!!! See what you got yourself into??? :)
