Hey guys,

So now that I've gotten most of my power washing equipment up and running just wondering if I should get some of the more novelty attachments. Thinks like sand blaster attachments for power washers. Do you advertise or get requests for such services?

Thanks

You can try and hit up paint companies for doing their prep work. Steel balconies/fire escapes and such. Keep in mind the enviromental red tape though.

The most popular blasting in this area is dry ice blasting, because of its low environmental impact (you do, however, have to have PAPR or other breathing equipment when using it). Media blasting and pressure washing are coming under heavy fire from the EPA and other government bodies, so a judicious eye turned to potential changes in the industry would be suggested.

Pressure Tek makes a 4 tip soldered together that I used for down streaming and rinsing. It makes life quick and amazing.
