    Not done much tarmac pressure washing, have been asked to quote this drive along with a patio ect.

    How would you tackle this driveway?
    It's roughly 200 sqm

    I have done a few tarmac drives recently and have use the FSC on all of them, just warn your customer that any tarmac that has degraded will come loose or be washed away.

    Thanks Roland, I currently don't own a flat service cleaner, guessing a turbo nozzle will destroy it more?

    Do
    Don't use a turbo nozzle whatever you do!

    Use a wide angle fan jet and just spray and brush or treat yourself to a FSC.
