I have heard of cleaners running their lines through another hose or sleeve to avoid the direct atmospheric temps to the hose, so that’s another option for you as well as hose wrap. Bottom line, keep your hoses from freezing!
If you can, try to start cleaning right away and get the water flowing as quickly as possible. Someone might have to man the wand, but it’s better than the water lines potentially getting cold.
Don’t forget to keep your doors open when you’re operating your equipment no mater how cold it is. Special packages are available to allow closing your doors but these are special add-ons that must be installed first into the van. We call them our “Security KIT” because they also allow locking up the van while working.
When you’re done with your job, be sure to relieve any pressure in the hoses by releasing the triggers and allowing any water /solution to drain once the pumps have been turned off.
This is when you need to run anti-freeze through all hoses and wands to keep them safe. Use our “winterizing kit for this. ( Part number “Y Winterizing Kit” )
S.O.V.C. is also great equipment add-on that will allow you to sell jobs where a quick dry time is important. SOVC will dry them faster than a warm summer day!
Enjoy the holidays, and be sure to ask Santa for tools to make your year more productive and financially cheerful!
