    I use one of these for all my customers that don't have a hose spigot nearby.

    This and a couple of 5 gallon jerry cans full of water and I can do a good cleaning.

    Either a portable compressor and air hose or a nitro tank and hose

    Bought mine at a local Johnstone Supply with the 3 foot long 90 degree spray wand for a bit over $500.
    Best investment I've made and it's already paid for itself with all the coil cleanings I've gotten done that noone else can do because of no water at those sites.

Have never seen a flat fin coil able to cool with 12 yrs of MN cottonwood seed on it without being rinsed off in all that time. I could not even see the spines!! I was called out because it was 100 degrees out and "it isn't cooling as well as it used too"

    Head pressure wasn't even tripping it off yet(close though) never seen a flat coil get that dirty and still work.
    REPLY: My answer was based on water NOT being available . I use water whenever i can to clean all air cooled Condensors.

    REPLY: What i dont like about the top 2 selling brands is the enormous marketing budget each have whereby a great deal of the consumers money (and contractors money) is going into that nice shiney nameplate with very little , if any, engineering advantages. Further, these top selling Brands have been responsible for putting out some of the worse models with breakdowns and recalls (heat exchangers recalls, etc..) . What i DO like about these 2 top selling brands are the extra coats of paint that are applied to each unit. Hope that helps .
