SHOOTER TIPS

SHOOTER TIPS

One of the newer products we now offer at Doug Rucker store are pressure washing shooter tips.  The sling shot shooter tip is designed to help you reach heights of 30-40 feet without the use of a ladder.  The purpose of these are for soft washing using either downstream via a pressure washer or a dedicated pump like the Kingslinger.  So for pressure washers we have them in 2-3GPM, 4-7GPM or 8-10GPM.

SHOOTER TIPS VISUAL DEMONSTRATION

In the video below, we provide both pictures and video footage of the shooter tips in action.  The 8-10GPM pressure washer tip provides spray up to at least four stories with no wind present.  This is ideal for cleaning larger homes, hotels, apartment complexes, commercial buildings and so forth.

KINGSLINGER SOFT WASH SYSTEM

The Kingslinger Soft Wash System is what we use frequently with an 0020 nozzle.  But we also provide video using the sling shot 2-3 GPM.  However, we prefer the 0020 nozzle over the sling shot for the air diaphragm pump.  There is very little difference, although I can sense a slight better distance from the 0020 nozzle.  The sling shot shooter tip does not come with the quarter inch.  You will need to order this separately if needed.  These awesome nozzles are priced just right!

COBWEB REMOVAL TIPS

COBWEB REMOVAL TIPS

A repeat customer needs the front of her home cleaned before hanging Christmas decorations.  In this case, our COBWEB REMOVAL TIPS might come in handy for your pressure washing business.  The first tip is to clean any light fixtures.  This means removing the glass panels.  It’s important to clean these glass panels over the grass rather than over a concrete surface.  This reduces the chance of breaking the glass if one of them is accidently dropped.  This not a usual or normal part of the job, but our commitment and attention to detail sets us apart from the competition. We used a soft towel wiping down the inside of the fixture.  This type of superior customer service will help you retain customers and generate continuous repeat business.

COBWEB DUSTER

One of the main tools we use is a cobweb duster.  You can purchase these at home improvement stores or DIY pest control stores.  This approach means we reduce the amount of water needed for cleaning the surface after removing the cobwebs.  You always want to use the least amount of water possible when cleaning the entry way to avoid water intrusion into the home.  By using a towel and hand detailing certain areas and spaces, the visual result will be much better.  And you reduce the risk of causing damage because you can’t always little cracks and cervices where water can penetrate and create havoc.

SHOOTER TIP

We use the SLING SHOT SHOOTER TIP from the Doug Rucker Store.  At $22, this newly custom manufactured tip for us comes in three gallon per minute options.  This is for down streaming with your pressure washer.  In the picture below, you can see how this tip reaches higher then the third floor dormer window.  I spent several years testing this tip and finally got it perfected after several modifications.  It has a hex end which tightens easily into a quarter inch coupler plus.  Another one of our COBWEB REMOVAL TIPS is using RAP, which is an all purpose cleaner and surfactant at a 24-1 mix ratio.  So no bleach was needed for this project.  Consider coming to Houston for one of my two day training events this year.  It’s a great opportunity for continuing education and meeting new friends in the business.
