Ball Valve Installation

BALL VALVE INSTALLATION

All of our trucks and trailers now have a ball valve installation that we recommend.  It is a three way valve that allows us to make a switch.  We can switch from the tank fill to a garden hose quickly and easily.  Some of examples for using this include filling a bucket, or the need for a high wash station.  If we need light pressure for anything like rinsing off the truck or anything else, it’s much easier than using a drain hose.

HOW BALL VALVE INSTALLATION WORKS

Water arrives to our rigs through the garden hose reel.  It then flows directly into the ball valve.  It can easily switch from filling the tank to a rig mounted garden hose.  With several different nozzles, you are able to use it in different ways.  For example, we have a fireman’s nozzle that can be purchased from Home Depot or Lowe’s.  This nozzle provides a wide range or garden hose pressure from a pretty long, straight stream to nothing more than a trickle if needed.  It’s ideal for filling a soap bucket without creating a lot of splashing suds.  In addition, we have a second nozzle that provides stronger pressure and a longer stream.  It’s the same nozzle that we use for just rinsing houses using a dedicated pump.

TRAILER VIEW

In this video, we also provide a quick view of the entire trailer.  I have been testing a booster pump, but eventually concluded it’s not really worth using.  I was not impressed at all!  So if you have any questions about this ball valve installation, just shoot me an email and I’ll answer as quickly as I’m able.  Be sure and subscribe to our YOUTUBE CHANNEL for more helpful videos.  Perhaps you would enjoy another post about a newer pressure washing truck rig.

XJET MODIFIED FOR DOWNSTREAM

XJET MODIFIED FOR DOWNSTREAM

Have you ever wanted to use an XJET but without all the mist and pressure that the XJET puts out?  The good news is that you can do exactly that!  I’m going to walk you through an XJET modified for downstream.  Remember that as you are evaluating a job, you are evaluating three things.  You are looking at the surface type and stain presence, which then helps you determine which application method to use.  Application options include downstream injector, dedicated pump, XJET, or even a pump up sprayer.  The XJET is just one application for applying your bleach mix.

XJET SET UP

Here are a few preliminaries before the XJET MODIFIED FOR DOWNSTREAM is executed.  The XJET comes with hose, nozzle and proportion attachments that help meter the mix coming out of the XJET bucket.  Its very important when using the XJET bucket, which comes separately, to ensure the back valve is open.  This allows for ample ventilation.  Otherwise, the bucket will collapse as a result of vacuum suction upon draw.  One end of the hose will attach directly to top of the XJET bucket.

XJET MODIFICATION

The main step for an XJET MODIFIED FOR DOWNSTREAM is to install the main part of the XJET in between the gun and the lance of the pressure washing gun.  For more information concerning the BEST SOFT WASH GUN, click here.  Remove the quarter inch plug fitting from the XJET nozzle and the spring and orifice from inside.  Install a quarter inch threaded fitting directly into the gun.  We always recommend using teflon tape with lock seal to secure the fittings.  Next, screw the XJET fitting directly into the threaded fitting now attached to the gun.  Then there is another quarter inch  fitting with threading INSIDE which screws on to the XJET nozzle.  After you reinstall the wand, place the quarter inch coupler on the end of the wand.  Now, using the JROD for downstreaming along with the XJET modification, you have much lower pressure.  The same down streaming distance of 40 feet can be acheived with this XJET MODIFIED FOR DOWNSTREAM process.

X-Jet modified for downstreaming

EXTRA HOSE

The XJET arrives with an approximately 15 foot hose.  This will require needing to move the XJET bucket every 15 feet.  This will add needless time to every project that the XJET bucket is used.  We always recommend purchasing a 50 foot hose to use in place of the 15 foot hose it comes with.

XJET XTRAS

One of the great advantages of this XJET MODIFIED FOR DOWNSTREAM process is that your bleach mix is not running through more equipment, which means this equipment will last much longer.  In addition, this method means you will use more bleach.  This modification allows you to use your XJET as a downstream injector, which is great for post treating concrete surfaces with heavy landscape.  Mist and overspray is greatly reduced and much more controlled with an XJET MODIFIED FOR DOWNSTREAM.  I have provided a detailed video on my YOUTUBE channel link here which provides further insight and details for this.

Best Soft Wash Gun

Best Soft Wash Gun

There are a few different soft wash guns available on the market today.  A soft wash gun is a gun used for applying your house or roof wash mix through your dedicated pump. In the video below I discuss the various one’s available and what I consider the Best Soft Wash Gun that I use.  Be sure to subscribe to my You Tube Channel so you get notifications of new educational videos I post.

Choosing a Soft Wash Gun is more of a personal preference thing, than someone telling you this gun or that gun is the best out there.  I can only tell you what gun works best for me.  Most often times you have to try them all to figure out the Best Soft Wash Gun for you and your business.

I personally don’t like the type with the long sprinkler riser coming off the ball valve.  But many people do and that’s fine, because it works for them.   I do prefer using a ball valve type gun though, as it won’t cause restrictions, loss of distance and flow like trigger guns.  Trigger guns are much safer though, because if you drop one, they immediately stop spraying.  My favorite ball valve gun is the one HERE.  Remember this is the not the type of gun you can use on a pressure washer.  It’s only for use with a soft wash dedicated pump.

Pressure Washing Hose Care

Pressure Washing Hose Care

How you take care of your Pressure Washing Equipment plays a big factor in how long it will last.  One of the most often overlooked is Pressure Washing Hose Care.  We all try to prevent cars from running over them, dragging them through rough terrain, and other obstacles that our hoses face. One of the easiest ways to prevent damage is in the rolling up of your hoses onto hose reels.

In this video I show you a kink I found in one of our pressure washing hoses that was caused by the hose not being stretched out straight as it approached the hose reel. When at all possible always make sure the power washing hose isn’t twisted or kinked when rolling them up.

On our residential rig’s we install the hose reels on the passenger side of the trailer or truck.  This makes it easier to roll out and roll up because we position the reel to feed down the driveway.   When parking in front of a house, we always block the driveway with the trailer or truck.  The hose reel can then easily feed down the driveway.  Blocking the driveway also prevents cars or trucks from rolling over our hose.

Pressure Washing Hose Care

On our commercial rig, our hose reels feed off the back of the trailer.  With wide open parking lots, or areas to park, this makes it easier.  Especially if you are cleaning large concrete areas or need to move the truck and trailer while working.  Disconnects at the hose reel allows us to drop the hose from reel before moving.  Dragging a hose while moving the truck or trailer can cause damage to your hose.

Be sure to watch the Pressure Washing Hose Care video, and subscribe to our You Tube Channel  and hit the like button.  Leave a question or comment and I’ll be sure to respond as quickly as I can.

Starting a Pressure Washing Business?  I have a great online pressure washing school with over 215 videos.  I also have monthly Hands On Pressure Washing Training here in Houston that also covers Soft Washing and Roof Cleaning.  If you have any questions bout our training please contact me at pressurecleaningschool@gmail.com or HERE.

Pressure Washing Equipment Oil

Pressure Washing Equipment Oil

When owning pressure washing equipment it is very important to properly maintain your equipment.  Using the correct Pressure Washing Equipment Oil for your machines is very important.  I have switched all my equipment and trucks to the High Performance Lubricants brand of oils.  My equipment and trucks run much smoother and I also have more time between changes.  This saves me time and money.

There are many options out there to consider for Pressure Washing Equipment Oil, and most of us do like I have done.  Go to the auto parts store and get the oil that we feel is the best value.  That’s all well and good, but those oils are not really the best for the equipment we use, and how much and often we run them.

The High Performance Lubricant brand of oils do exactly as they say, give you High Performance.  I stock and sell them in our store, because I feel so strongly about them. You can find the ENGINE OIL HERE.

Also available on the store Site is Pressure Washing Pump Oil as well as Air Compressor Oil if you use an AODD pump for Soft Washing like I do.

pressure washing equipment oil

These oils are competitively priced, only a little bit higher than the store bought brands.  The little extra you spend, you will make up on extended equipment life, less failures, and more time between oil maintenance changes.  Always remember to change your oil filter when changing engine oil.

If you have any questions feel free to email me or use the contact form on this site.  You can also text me at 281-883-3630.  Be sure to check out our online pressure washing school if you are starting a pressure washing business.  With over 200 training videos you will drastically cut your learning curve.

PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS

PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS

Paying close attention to PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS is vital for new start up companies.  We understand that some believe simply buying a pressure washing machine is enough to start a business.  But nothing could be farther from the truth!  To be successful, PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS must be given adequate consideration before you begin investing in equipment.  Specifically, there are three PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS to vet fully and carefully in order to succeed.

IN THE OFFICE

You will need to consider who will answer the phone, and how will they convert inquiries into business.  Another factor is the process of estimating.  Each potential customer will need to provide specific details regarding the scope of work needed.  And of course, this will need to be recorded carefully and completely.  Is there a gate code?  Are there any pets?  Will the customer be home or away while work is completed? And how will you write the estimate?  Will you be using google maps street view and other online tools?  Or do you plan to see the property before writing up an estimate?  Will it be a paper or digital estimate?  You will also want to keep a customer database.  In addition, a marketing strategy is a major component of PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS in the office.  And did we say accounting?  How will you receive payment?

ON THE JOB

You will need a clear statement of policies and procedures guiding actual work on the job.  From the moment you arrive until you leave after completing the work, what are the critical, common steps to take.  How is the property prepared for work to protect from damage?  A plan must be in place for things such as light fixtures, furnishings, plants, and windows.  Not to mention electrical outlets and boxes, a/c unit and even possible existing damage to the structure itself are important considerations. PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS on the job is an immense help when it comes to completing the work efficiently, professionally, and profitably. Time for these systems must be factored into every estimate.

pressure washing business systems

 

FOLLOW UP

Once the job is the complete, how will you follow up?  Will you send each customer a thank you card?  Do you plan to utilize a survey to improve customer service?  Will a return visit be scheduled?  Do you provide a satisfaction guarantee?  If so, this means some customers may require a return visit to touch up any missed areas.  If the customer is disappointed with service, you’ll want to make it right.  This will help ensure future business with them and increase the chance of a positive referral.  Speaking of referrals, will a referral strategy be part of your PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS follow up?  A customer database will allow you to reach out to them again in the future.  Recording vital contact information such as name, address, phone numbers and emails is imperative for a successful PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS follow up strategy.

We are fully convinced that all of the equipment you invest in will sit idle without PRESSURE WASHING BUSINESS SYSTEMS.  These systems need to be in place for the office, on the job, and follow up before you complete your first project.  If not, you will find yourself scratching your head and wondering what to do next!

Through out the year we have several Pressure Washing Training Events that you can attend.  If you live outside the Houston area, you can also become a member of our Online Video School.  For more information on the training we offer feel free to email me at pressurecleaningschool@gmail.com. Be sure to visit our You Tube Channel and subscribe.

Pressure Washing Training Houston

Pressure Washing Training Houston

We are adding a different kind of school to our schedule this year.  For the past 6 years I have been offering a 2 day monthly Pressure Washing Training Houston Texas school.  This October I am teaming up with Gerald Vess, the Roof King, and we will be hosting a 2 day school October 19-20, 2019.

The last few years I have noticed that many start up companies are not comfortable with proper cleaning techniques and how to price jobs.  There are far to many that think soft washing can only be done with a 12V pump.  Because most assume a pressure washer can only be used for cleaning concrete or porous surfaces.  Knowing how to sell your services and how to create value gives way to bidding a low price just to get the job.  Once this happens your company is not profitable and therefore not sustainable for the long term.

Power Wash Training That Makes A Difference

Pressure Washing Training Houston Texas

Not only are we going to teach you proper cleaning techniques, we are also going to spend time on the Business End of your company.  Pricing commercial and residential jobs, creating value in your services at fair prices for you and your customer.  Managing Customers, Property Protection, Chemical Mixes and Ratios, How to save time on the Job Site, Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing and how to identify surfaces, stains and application methods are just a few of the classes we will be teaching on.

This school is being held at the Country Inn & Suites located at 20611 US-59 Humble Texas.  We have a special room rate of 70$ a night.  Just mention that you are attending the Doug Rucker School.  You can call the Hotel directly at 2814464977.  If you are flying in, I suggest flying into the Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport, (IAH).  The hotel has a free shuttle that can pick you up and take you back when the school is over.

It is my desire that this Pressure Washing Training Houston Texas school will be a Difference Maker and help take your business to the next level.  The cost of this two day training school is $359.00 and you can register by CLICKING HERE.

Pressure Washing Strainers

Pressure Washing Strainers

Hey, everybody! Real quick. I’ve see some post with people having problems
with their bleach tank getting degraded for various reasons.  Pressure Washing Strainers degrading bleach can be the biggest cause for this.

A lot of the time it’s caused by these metal strainers. Your bleach will degrade these pretty quickly.
It can cause your bleach mix to turn orange or black. All these metal shavings will get left down
at the bottom of the tank. Every time you put bleach in it, it’s going to continue to degrade it. We
use our bleach fast enough that it doesn’t have time to degrade.

Get rid of these! Don’t use them on anything that’s going to come in connect with bleach. We
don’t even use them with water. They come with the X-jet. Use the pail system on the X-jet and
get rid of this. You won’t have that problem.

PVC Pipes are great Strainers

If you’re downstreaming or using a dedicated pump, there are a couple of different ways you
can do it. These are two different types of PVC pipe. You have the female threads on the inside.
You can screw you pipe onto those. These are plastic, it won’t degrade it. I don’t like these
because I feel like these can starve your pump. I don’t think you get the flow you should. People
disagree with that and that’s ok. It’s what I feel so I don’t use these. I’ve had these sitting around
for years. If I ever did use them, I’d cut them off here.

Mainly, what we use, depending on if it’s a dedicated pump or if it’s downstreaming, we’ll use
something like this. It’s cut of and angled. We’ll actually run our dip hose or our braided hose
down through there. We’ll fasten these black strainers on if we’re downstreaming. That’s what
we use. There is a little weight in there.

I’ve never had a problem with these degrading our mix or the black causing it to turn a color.
They’re pretty safe. What you will have is the bleach will eat this cap our. The weight or
magnet will fall out. That’s why we have the pipe on there to keep it weighted down in the
bucket or the tank. We use those.

On our dedicated pumps, we don’t use a strainer. We actually use a PVC pipe and a 90. That
way we’re getting full flow.

Keep Your Pressure Washing Tanks Clean

One of the things we do is we keep our tanks clean. We have a bulk head that runs at the
bottom of the tank. We’ve been doing this for three or four years. It doesn’t hurt anything. The
bleach doesn’t hurt the bulk head fitting. At least, we’ve never had that problem. We run a hose
off of that bulk head fitting.

We use that for filling up X-jet buckets if we ever need to use and X-jet. Mainly we use it for
filling up pump up sprayers when we need to use pump up sprayers. We also use it to keep the
tank flushed out. It’ll get empty and about every 2 weeks we’ll take a water hose in there. We
don’t get a lot of grit in there. We keep it clean.

The other thing that could cause your problem is the type of soap you’re using. Sometimes
different types of soap can cause your bleach to degrade. It can cause it to turn colors. You
might switch your soap and see if that’s the issue.

Metal Causes Rust Issues

When you got a tank and bleach that’s degrading/changing colors, you’ve got to find out what is
different in that tank. What’s in my water tank(if your water tank is not doing it). Bleach will
attack anything.

I hope that helps you guys. That’s various different ways to get rid of these. You can use these if
you feel safe. We don’t sell them. I don’t recommend them. You can get them at many of the
other vendors around that sell those. This is what we use for downstreaming. Then just regular
PVC, we cut and angle or we put a 90 on it. We get our full flow. The key is keeping your tanks
clean for whenever you have a problem, isolating and figuring out what’s caused it. Using the correct Pressure Washing Strainers will help to solve this.

I hope that helps you guys!

Pressure Washing School FAQ’s

Pressure Washing School FAQ’s

For the last 9 years, we have been holding our monthly school in Houston, Texas. Here are some Pressure Washing School FAQ’s that will help you with questions you may have. Please feel free to text me at 2818833630 or email at pressurecleaningschool@gmail.com if you have questions that aren’t answered here. 

When are the schools held?

This monthly school in Houston is held once a month and usually on the second Monday and Tuesday of every month. The 2020 Schedule is as follows:  January 13-14, February 8-9, March 9-10, May 11-1, June 8-9, July 13-14, August 10-11, September 14-15, October 12-13, November 9-10, and December 7-8.

What is the cost to attend the monthly schools?

If you are doing business outside of the Houston TX area, the cost is $750.00. Any additional attendees, the cost is $375.00 per additional attendee.  

If you will be doing business in the Houston TX area, then the cost is $1500.00. If you are bringing an additional attendee, then the cost for the additional attendee is $750.00 per additional attendee.  

Why does it cost double the price just because I am from Houston

Couple of reasons: first, I am training my own local competition, and second, it is not fair to the attendees that travel to Houston and have travel, lodging, and meal expenses.  It levels the playing field as far as a true cost for both local and out-of-area attendees.

What type of training happens at the monthly school?

I teach Residential Exterior Cleaning only. This includes House Washing, Roof Cleaning, Driveway Cleaning, I do not teach commercial, fleet wash, kitchen hood cleaning, wood restoration or any other type of pressure washing service. It is purely residential cleaning only.

What type of training will I receive?

You will receive “hands on” field training as well as classroom training. One day of training is held either outside at my home, or on an actual job site, as we teach you how we clean a roof, a house, and a driveway. During this training, we will go over Spraying Techniques, Soft Washing, Pressure Washing, Different Chemical Application methods for Soft Washing and Pressure Washing, how we set up on a job site, planning and visualizing the job, Chemical Mix Ratios, what I look for when I am bidding a job as well as what I look for protecting the property, plants, pets and more. This is training is done at my home or on a job site when available.

Day Two

The second day of training is classroom training and is held at our office. The classroom portion consists of PowerPoint presentations that cover House Washing and Roof Cleaning, equipment needed, mixing ratios, different application methods, bidding residential jobs, preparing the job site, identifying surfaces, stains and best application methods, and more. We also have PowerPoint presentations that will cover roof cleaning, concrete cleaning, and plant and property protection.

Each day starts at about 9:00am, at my house, unless advised a different start time, and we usually finish by 1:00-2:00 each day. Please do not arrive earlier than 9:00am or the designated start time given to you.

Travel and Lodging Recommendations

I recommend that you fly into the Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) as it is only 10-15 from my house. The hotel that I recommend is the Country Inn and Suites located at 20611 Highway 59 N, Humble Tx 77338, (281) 446-4977.  Room Rates are $70.00 per night, using the code DougRuckerSchool. This hotel is just 10 minutes from my office, and has plenty of eating, shopping and even a movie theatre nearby. They have a shuttle available to pick you up from the airport, as well as take you anywhere within 5 miles of the Hotel during your stay. There are many other choices for lodging near me; you would just want to stay in the Kingwood/Humble area, as close to the 59/Northpark exit as possible. I advise that you plan to arrive sometime Sunday afternoon and plan to leave, if flying, no earlier than 3-4pm on Tuesday after the class.

Transportation

The Country Inn and Suites offers a shuttle to and from the airport. You can also choose to take a cab or Uber to the your hotel.  A rental car is also an option to consider, if you plan to tour the Houston area during your free time.  Once you’ve arrived, we can pick you up each day for the school and drop you back off at the hotel, if you are staying at the Country Inn and Suites.  On Tuesday, once the school has concluded, you will need to make arrangements for transportation back to the airport.

Online Video Pressure Washing School’s

Is there any additional training after the school and, if so, what is the cost?

The only additional training that you can purchase is my online video school. In fact you may want to consider purchasing it first. The online school has all the classroom classes I teach here in Houston, and over 250 additional training videos. It is a lifetime, one-time membership of $449.00 (price subject to change), and you get access to all current videos and future videos. There are also optional certification tests you can take after each module. The certification tests are $28.95 each, and there is one each for Roof Cleaning, House Washing, Concrete Cleaning, and Plant and Property Protection. If you decide to take the tests, and you pass, you can post a listing on our directory located here: https://www.pressurecleaningschool.com/directory/. We would need you to email us your logo in Digital Format to pressurecleaningschool@gmail.com

Length of Video Classes

The Roof Cleaning class portions are about 1 and 1/2 hours spread over 4 videos. House Washing Class is about 2 and 1/2 hours spread over 5 videos. Concrete is about 30 minutes spread over 2 videos. Plant Protection is about 1 hours with 2 videos.  There are also many other training videos under these classes, but those are the main ones that you take to prepare you for the tests.  After taking and passing the tests, a printable certificate can be printed out for your use.

Attending my school here in Houston, or any other of my schools, DOES NOT give you free access to the online video school. It is a separate purchase. Please don’t assume that just because you pay to attend the school here that the online video school comes with that purchase. IT DOES NOT . This is why I say you may want consider the online video school first.

Another Online Video School Choice

For those that may not be able to afford the life-time membership course,  you can choose to pay for the individual classes separately.  The prices vary ranging from $49.00 to $89.00 and you have access to only the classes needed to take the tests.  It is not a lifetime membership, and access to the classes and videos lasts 2 weeks to complete the courses from the time you register.  Once the 2 weeks expire, you no longer have access to the videos or classes.  You can check out this online power wash school at Cleaner’s University.

Even More Additional Training

Any student that attends my school will have access to me anytime they need additional help at no extra charge. This means you can text me, email me, or call me anytime you have questions, whether it be about equipment selection, bidding a job, how to clean something, etc. I also offer video conferencing when needed as well. Whatever you need, I am here to help you succeed. If I don’t know the answer, I will help you get it. I am here to help your new business be successful and to teach you how to clean using the proper process and procedures.  Remember that just because the school ends, the education does not.

Is there a Certification?

You will receive a Certificate of Attendance for Exterior Cleaning. You will also, after passing the tests, have a listing on our Web Site directory. This is not required. It is only an option if you’d like to have your business listed as a Certified Graduate. 

Our school is also accepted by the UAMCC for certification through them once you qualify for testing. For more information on UAMCC certification, go to www.uamcc.org.

Difference Maker School

From time to time, I will host a Difference Maker School with a guest instructor(s).  This school is held at a local hotel where we can host more people than at my normal monthly schools.  This allows more students to attend, but at a lower cost.  The Difference Maker school is designed for those that are thinking about or just starting a pressure washing business. It is also ideal for those that have been in business for 3 years or less.  The Difference Maker school has more classroom training than hands-on training. My monthly school we are on an actual job site, cleaning a roof, house, and driveway.

difference maker school

At the Difference Maker school, we provide equipment demonstration training, using the equipment I use on a daily basis. This  demonstration training is mainly designed to get you familiar with the equipment needed for your new business. Application Techniques and Equipment demonstrations allow you to get a feel for what you need to make you a success.
