Power Wash Van Setup


Our Power Wash Van Setup is the main subject of this video post.  This video is unique as the recording was made with a new set of video glasses.  So I welcome any feedback viewers might have about this particular video.  So first off is the 8 GPM skid pressure washerThis video post might help you as you consider which pressure washer to select for your start up business.  And then of course, the Kingslinger Soft Wash System is also on board as part of this power wash van setup.  At approximately 1:00 into the video, I talk about some recent changes to the Kingslinger.  For this particular build, the mixing station is not mounted to the compressor as it usually is.  But we were able to customize a wall mount with all the hoses hidden so everything looks nice and clean.  Later in the video, we also point out the Kingslinger drain kit as well.  This makes releasing pressure from the compressor convenient and is a big time saver.


There are two 100 gallon tanks in the middle of the van.  One is for bleach and the other is for water.  Both tanks are well vented through the bottom of the van to protect the equipment from bleach gasses creating deterioration and damaging equipment.  There is space between each tank which provides ample room to walk throughout the van.  This makes work on the job and maintaining equipment extremely convenient with easy and spacious access.  Then we also include the Flow Pro Remote System for downstreaming along with the actuator for bypass and three way poly valve.  This valve means fast and easy rinsing of the downstream injector.  This particular custom build is easy to operates and delivers easy access to everything on board.


While the previous equipment is from the back door, the side door opens up to the surface cleaner.  This 24 inch Lil’ Big Guy packs a powerful punch for concrete cleaning of driveways, sidewalks, and the like.  Directly behind this surface cleaner are the three Hannay Electric hose reels with circuit breakers.  Then you have the fierce jet pressure hose, and flexilla garden as well as soft wash hoses.  This van is almost brand new and is in excellent condition.  Guns and nozzles are all ready for action for this power wash van setup.  This particular customer attended our school about a year ago and is doing very well in his business.  In fact, this is his second custom build from the Doug Rucker Store.  Don’t hesitate to contact us if we can help with any equipment or custom build needs you may have.  You can call or text 281-612-1223 or email

This POWER WASH SUPPLIES DIY video post includes assembly instructions.  So some items for purchase at have an option you can choose from.  The options are DIY, which stands for DO IT YOURSELF and requires assembly, or RTU.  RTU means the item comes READY TO USE and we assemble the parts prior to shipment.  As a reminder, you can visit our physical location at 25432 TX-494 Loop in Porter, Texas.  Our hours are 9am-noon and 1pm-3pm.  Thanks for checking out this POWER WASH SUPPLIES DIY video post that we hope will help your business.


If you purchase our PRESSURE WASH GUN ASSEMBLY with DIY option, I provide instructions on how to assemble it.  It’s very easy to assemble and is a fantastic gun to have for downstreaming.  And I demonstrate how the rotating grip is a great advantage when using a J Rod nozzle.  This saves a lot of time and effort on the job by not needing to stop and rotate the nozzle manually.  Aluminum extension wands are also part of the video demonstration at the 3:00 time stamp.  Be sure and watch the entire POWER WASH SUPPLIES DIY video for all the assembly instructions.


I have several different videos on my YouTube channel that cover this particular product.  Just search “adjustable wand” and those videos will come up.  This is an extremely helpful and handy item to have, especially if you want to control the pressure level at the gun.  Everybody’s favorite, the classic BALL VALVE SET UP, is another product I cover in this POWER WASH SUPPLIES DIY video post.  This allows you to switch guns or switch to a surface cleaner easily and quickly.  This saves a lot of time and energy on each job site.  And, it helps prevent hose tangling and twisting.  At the 9:45 time stamp, I go back through each of these products and go over step by step assembly instructions to help customers purchasing these products.  Developing these assembly skills helps prepare for any repairs that might be needed on the job site.  This will keep you moving forward and help maintain and increase your profit margins.

This BEST SOFT WASH GUN video helps pressure wash business professionals.  We also cover trigger guns and provide a contrast for options available for purchase on my website.  These options include purchasing either DIY or RTU.  DIY means the parts arrive without assembly and you are responsible for assembly.  This saves a few dollars, but I always provide video assembly instructions on the website product page.  RTU means the product arrives ready to use and we assemble the parts before shipping.


This SOFT WASH BALL VALVE GUN is my favorite.  It is the BEST SOFT WASH GUN because it doesn’t restrict the flow as in the case of trigger guns.  You get just a little bit more distance and volume.  The are extremely durable and require very low maintenance.  Keep in mind though a couple of positive aspects of trigger guns.  The trigger guns stop spraying immediately upon release which is helpful when you drop the gun accidentally.  I recommend new guys to always start with a trigger gun.  In the video, I show several trigger guns also available on the my website.


At the 6:00 time stamp of this BEST SOFT WASH GUN video, I provide detail assembly instructions for all of these guns.  This will help those of you who purchase these guns DIY, or do it yourself.  The ball valve gun and the trigger guns basically have the same components so the assembly instructions are very similar.  You will appreciate the difference I explain here regarding when to use teflon tape or Tru-Blu.  There are many other details I cover so you will want to watch the full video.  I also provide insight for using your Jrod nozzles with these various guns.  Purchasing DIY saves you money, and also helps you build your own skill set with tools, glues and so forth.  It also helps to build assembly skills to prepare you for repairing parts and supplies that fail on the job.  Another post you might enjoy is this video post on the subject of DOWNSTREAMING EQUIPMENT.
