    I have a 15 gallon mini drum I secured on a dolly. I cut the top off the drum, now I wish I didn't as it tends to slosh too much. I'm going to find another one and just use the screw top. I only use the xjet on few occasions but it's great when you need a sledgehammer. Forget the proportioneers, I just downstream till I need the power of the xjet. Oh and with my 8gpm and an 0050 nozzle I can shoot about 65+ feet horizontal with the xjet setup this way.

    65 feet? I'll have to try mine again. I only tested it out to see if it was working without the stream going right through the nozzle without slowing down. I have to test out some more jrods too.

    Just a guess. To contain the residual SH in the line.

    65 feet is a great distance, I will have to check my 8gpm machine with a 0050 nozzle to see how far it will spray then rig up something like what Pat has to see what it can do.

    That would be it. In a a 30' line there's a LOT of SH. It'll do a nice Zorro job on a lawn. Please don't ask me how I know that. lol

    Here's the modified xjet with a 5.5 gpm machine. Sorry about the shakiness, I'm not a videographer! I work by myself, so no one to hold the camera, but me.

    You're a genius. Just got to add more hose and that's a wrap.

    I hit some lichen that was growing on sections, and in about five minutes it just rinsed right off, no pressure. I love it.

    All #50 for soaping 0550. I usually rinse with a set of #40 or sometimes #30 orifice.
