No Jeff, don't have use of one yet but it looks cool. Winter project along with fixing my 3 pressure washers all that have taken a beating this year! $700 pump needed for one so I'm gonna try rebuild myself.

That guy is like 5 minutes from Art. He could hoard them for us! I was being sarcastic.

Remote units are a very easy build.  And the solenoids you showed are the ones I'm using now and am happy with. With rinsing I get about a month out of one.

Yea,..I did that a while back. I currently have (8) of them on hand,..and I'm sure I'll be purchasing more over the Winter months. I thought about making a few of these units and selling them at a fair price,.but I don't know.

*The ones that went bad were just barely,.AND I MEAN barely pulling soap when shut off,..but I just change them and don't try to get every second out of one. A couple times I know it must have been debris at the plunger,..because a good thorough rinse out and the issue was solved. I haven't had one sticking or or a coil go bad yet with this solenoid. These units make such a difference to anyone who DS's.

On my pickup tube's especially 12v pumps pulling mix I use nylon ultra fine mesh paint strainers to prefilter mix to keep debris out. Use electrical tape and it holds up well. Worth a try

Yea,.I have just the regular plastic type strainer on the end of my pickup tube now,..But you're right,.. those paint strainer ones may be worth a try.

*You know something I do when using black tape, and if the application allows it,...I will use a zip tie to keep the black tape end from coming un-stuck and hanging loose. Also with black tape,..I never tear it,..I always cut it with a razor knife,..and then let it relax back,..then stick it down,..then zip tie it,Ha,Ha,...Maybe I overthink sometimes.

I do too (overkill) but my customers appreciate that I go out of the way to protect their properties. It's why most of my work is from lifelong customers.

Think I'll do the zip tie thing. The nylon mesh holds up a long time to SH.

My name is Anita Ingram I'm 42 years old. My husband is Joe Ingram. He's also 42.

We are here to try to learn more about softwashIng all exterior surfaces.

 

Hi Anita and Joe. I am new here, so perhaps I didn't understand where you are going to use the ball valve to bypass? On my simple soft wash rig, I use a L type 3 way ball valve I purchased from JN Equipment, part number ( AGBV8216230 ball valve 3 way). I am assuming that you are using a low pressure ( under 100 psi ?) system, so the valve will be on the suction side of the pump (up streaming). I use mine to switch from SH batch tank to a rinse tank.   This particular valve does have motor or solenoid capability, but perhaps pricey.   I have several of those small 12 volt valves left over from another project.  Nice conversation...
