Hypo Mix

Recommended Posts

jack b

What ratio mix do you generally use to get the algae off the finials on the conny roof (the fancy bit that runs along the top)

Been using UBIK for some time but have been told that Hypo will give a more comprehensive result and gets into all the nooks and crannies, then just drops off with minimal scrubbing. A farm shop near me apparently sells the stuff.

So what ratio mix do most of you use please.

Ubik does exactly what you describe but a lot less hazardous than SH.

 

Wet roof. Apply Ubik. 10/1 plenty strong. Aggitate with brush.

 

Leave 5 mins and rinse off.

 

SH for a conny roof is just overkill.

Thank you for the reply Green P.C.

I shall heed your advice on this and reel back my ideas to use this on connys in future, sticking with the Ubik. I accept your knowledge on the subject.

agree on that also SH ruins your gear so avoid until you really get into softwashing

Then just factor into price for renewing fittings connections etc

a tip i just picked up & have used with excellent results on 2 first cleans with connys is to put 500ml of asda bleach ( 40p worth ) in 20 ltrs of water in my backpack & spray everything down & scrub & finish off with pure, the hypo is in the bleach but in safe amounts so no worries

pole & hose was clean by rinsing the houses & just fill backpack & run it dry twice

Surely cant be good, the reason we buy pumps with viton seals is because that stuff eats rubber.

yeah but you use it on a conny maybe once & wash it off straight away not like running it through a sprayer time after time

Most roofs I do haven't been cleaned in 3 to years so I use it on them and 5 to 6 a for night so I ha e all the correct stuff for using hypo

Alex also pointed out the warranty would be void if using it for hypo
