Either of theses below are very good the one on the left is a lot cheaper but doesn’t containers scent mask , bonnymans sell it but think they are closed at the moment ?..300 ml of it in a 20 ltr drum of hypo , depending what you are cleaning a hypo mix of 4 parts water to one part hypo will clean most things

Did a nice PW on a monoblock driveway yesterday and it had a lot of white lichen. It came off no bother with the Falch and twin turbo nozzle. Will be making a wooden whirlaway for the Falch nozzle to see if its any better as I can set the height to an exact length.

My 4 castors arrive today and I am PW my monoblock pathway as well. Handy if they come early and I can test my wooden whirlaway. 😉

Made my wooden whirlaway for my Falch nozzle but I have not tested it yet. It has a ground to nozzle length of 130mm which might be 30mm too high but will not know till I try it.

HI babs et al - think at this time you'll stuggle to get ANY suitable surfactant for hypo - I tried a few weeks back - gave up in the end - would appreciate if you find a supplier you post it back on here - cheers hope you do 😉👍

Scottish - you're weren't kidding you were a joiner - 👍 I did one a few weeks back - stubborn as - lichen - Kevinc250 (?) suggested using a biocide I think I'll be trying that in future - I got most of it but it was a big area and didn't fancy wagging my wand (not a euphemism 😉 )all over it..

I found my turbo nozzle can 'eat' into softer or friable surfaces so tend not to use it nowdays...good see how you get on

I use my turbo on most surfaces and just knock the pressure right down.

It still cleans better than the fan tips imo.

I only use hypo on black Lichen which doesn't like to let go with the pressure washer. Sometimes I just spot treat it with neat hypo a few times. 😉

I used to hypo first, wait, pressure wash.

Found it was a waste of time as same results washing first then spraying stubborn areas.. then quickly blast the remaining spots.

A lot quicker for me and use a lot less chems.

I came to same conclusions after a while. It saves time and money with far better results I quickly noticed. That's what the game is about getting good results with as little effort as possible. I'm off to do a bit of sanding in the sunshine from a PW job last week. 😎

I was lucky because the PW jobs came in early this year and I buy 10 bags at a time. Only got a few left now but I heard B&Q sell it click and collect but can be a big queue. When I run out, I will tell customer I will come back in a month or so to sand it or they can sand it themselves. I don't use much sand now because I am very careful with where it goes. Only used 2 bags on 70 square metres today when I used to use 3 and blow the rest down the street. 😂

Best thing to do is try and book yourself on a course, I did this and it was well worth the money, £500 for 2 days last year. 😉

👍 it's being used to sanitise outdoor areas/transport etc by local authorities etc - hard to get hold of nozzles aswell - everyone and their dog is now into 'softwashing' anything that doesn't move...probably will be that way from the rest of summer...you could try wallpaper paste - apparently it works -just check it's not going create toxic fumes...
