Nasty rooftop unit, no water supply. Backpack water supply anyone?
Not every day but occaissionally we get calls for work on units where for whatever reason we don't have access to water. What if any products are available to us or can be utilizes by those in our field?
And I'd rather not get into the dynamics or discussion of climbing with weight.
Thank you all in advance. I've searched but don't think I'm using the correct search terms.
I love the struggle.
this happened to me today (old fast food restaurant, now liquor store) no water and it needs cleaned!!! backpack water! what do you use?
The only ones I have seen would be the 4 gal back packs with a hand pump and a spray wand. Would do the trick. Might have to fill a few time.
Anyone else seen other thing interest to see what other guys have done?
Like Shooter241 suggested back in my A/C days I had a backpack type sprayer like the forestry service use for fire fighting and back in the old days used for spraying weed killer
We have got a wash trailer with 600 feet of pressure washer hose, a 160 gal tank, tool box with wands, cleaners, tarps n orings, also has a rack with 200 feet of garden hose. Used to be a chore wrapping up all the PW hose ( on a reel) but i rigged a 12v motor on it. Easy day now
Fill a ton of times if u use a chemical, god forbid its a split coil!

Almost Every place has a washroom with a sink in it somewhere.
Hi, my name is Glenn, and I'm a Toolaholic!
Hey Glenn do you have a part number or a manufacture of that adapter?

Instead of carrying 300 feet of hose, I'm thinking of using those deflating hoses .. testing them for endurance now.
a small brush can do alot of good getting the fur blanket off, if you can get to the fins.

Can be a huge pain. Never quoted it for use on a large coil. Would have to come up with a better way.
Just curious if anyone has one of these? Looks handy for situations like this? http://www.speedclean.com/coiljet/
Any plumbing supply house will have them in stock. No idea what the part # is.

I guess you could call them an aerator to hose adapter.
Sorry I don't. Found it many years ago at an Ace Hardware in plumbing with the other aerators.
Like said above, an aerator to hose adapter.
