    I do not, I make the facility provide a water tap within reasonable distance of equipment to be serviced.
    It's hard to stop a Trane. but I have made one helluva living keeping them going.

    ya I feel like it should be a LAW to have water on all commercial or restaurant rooftops.

    Can't remember who to give the credit to, but it was about hauling hoses. And they brought up the fact they used Soda Fountain hose with hose fittings and have it in on a reel. I have two, two hundred foot lengths on extension cord reels, now. Hose is small enough in diameter it keeps pressure perfect from a distant location, at the same time burst pressure is higher than a garden hose. No more carrying a ton of space consuming hoses. With ball valves at either end, don't worry about them leaking and draining in the back of the truck either.

    Only been skunked a few times with 400ft of hose.

    There are plenty of industrial, remote sights that there is no water within a mile.

    We do it one of two ways.
    20 gallon truck mounted water tank tied to a small pressure washer. This does a great job with a little water.

    20 gallon water tank using a water well pump. This goes through water pretty quick.

    SS pump up sprayer modified with a hose bib. Full pressure, but requires pumping and won't last long. Couple this with a small pressure washer and you are truly mobile.

    I show up in my Coil Washer Truck #2.

    6000 gallon stainless tank.

    515 gallon stainless steel chemical (coil cleaner) premix tank

    Six inch 2400 GPM cab controlled top mounted turret

    Twin Waterous 1200gpm pumps

    Two inch cab controlled bumper turret


    Since going with this set up I have had to replace a lot of coils and a few smaller 2 ton condensers were never located after washing.

    I am rethinking my plan of attack next summer.
    UA LU189

    10mm, because it's better than .45acp
