    How are you rinsing your roofs?

    For those using 12volt pumps, John blue (low volume high psi pumps), or any pump other than a pressure washer, what are you using to rinse down the roof after you have applied your solutions? Some rinse and some don't, I'm not knocking it one way or the other. If you do rinse what means do you use in doing so?

    We rinse with a garden hose.I prefer to rinse while still on the roof from the top down.There are those roofs that are cleaned and rinsed from the the eaves because they are to steep to walk.
    I dont do climbing gear.

    I appreciate your reply. I guess what I'm asking is how many people use a hose off the house to rinse. I'm with you, I don't do climbing gear.

    I use a hose off the house, if water pressure is ok.
    If not, we carry a large diameter water hose, and that makes low water pressure mo better.

    Yes,usually we rinse witha hose off the house.If house pressure is low I'll use the pressure hose with and open ball valve.

    If it's not doing the job,I will close the handle slightly.Gives the force of a garden hose nozzle that is open 1/2 to 3/4 of the way.

    A high-flow washer (8+) would give you a real good rinse.

    This method also does pretty good rinsing concrete after a surface cleaner, but it's loud as hel_ with my 8gpm washer. I like doing it sometimes because you can open it all the way and rinse your over spray without making a bigger mess. Normaly we use our softwash line to rinse concrete and overspray off the house, shrubs, etc..., but we help each other out with this method when there is time for it.

    And, that is why all should link back to it.
    Are you listening Tim ?
    We USED to be the worlds number one site for the search term "roof cleaning".
    Then, I got the "bright idea" to try and list other roof cleaning sites, so my friends could also benefit from my popularity in the search rankings.

    Unfortunately, may sites I linked to were seen by Google for what many of them are, pressure washing sites, with MAYBE something about roof cleaning thrown in.

    A sites outbound links tells Google much about that site.

    So, we have fallen to number two.

    BUT, by linking my site to these other sites, it will boost their pupolarity, and a link from them back to me will eventually help me too.

    And really, being number two in the world ain't all bad.

    I can't clean roofs in Kentucky or North Florida, LOL

    We are number one in every Florida market we want to be in.

    I BET Tim Aselton's web sit is also worth some Jack too ?

    He has excellent page rank, and the term "softwashing" is a powerful one.

    I really think he should trademark it ?

    To me, it is "his" anyway, since he owns the URL

    Well, Ron is better at this then me, but first of all, you need to get some people to link to you.

    But, be careful ?

    They need to be what is called relevant links.

    This means people using the same keywords as you.

    Hey Tim, I also own lots of great domains.

    One of my domains already has a value and I don't even have a site on it.
