    2 for 1 on hose reel - Pressure Washing Palm Coast

    Hey guys I have had this nice roof cleaning 5/8 x 200 ft hose on a hose reel. But I still was hooking up to a house with my garden hose, and unrolling it rolling it up. I was going to buy another hose reel for a garden hose. But now I am using it for both, a hook up to the house for water with a turn of a ball valve, or change out to either a wand or to a hose bib.
    So I went to Home Depot and pick up 2 ball valves and a tee (PVC). So now when I need to pull from my pump to do roof cleaning I open 1 ball valve and close the other to the tank. Works great saves time, $$$ - and space
    But with 8gpm going it just keeps. But my large tank its not be a problem.

    thats pretty clever. i use 3/4 low pressure hose so with only a 3gpm chem pump I don't think it'll work for me. my roof mix might be at a trickle coming out of that hose??

    Thanks
    I to was checking that out, so I pulled the hose going to the chemical tank with the ball valve close while filling the water tank nothing came out.
    I have a 3gpm shurflow and a fat boy. So far it works great.
    I like the fact that I have 200ft of hose. So now I can go farther from the hose bid and not have to run extra pw hose.

    I also added a clear3/4 line about 4ft between the pump and the ball valve so I can see if the water or chemical are getting by.
