@Aunt LaLa the Drunken Cupid 🍷💘 a commercial power washer will use more than the customers water output in most situations and that's why companies carry large tanks of water to do jobs. The customer supplements the water being used which allows the job to get done more efficiently. Without water no work is done in the power washing industry.
Aunt LaLa the Drunken Cupid 🍷💘
@Dan Sullivan the customer's water was used to refill the tank? 🤔 Anyone else see this is the same thing?
Aunt LaLa the Drunken Cupid 🍷💘
It's common sense. Who would question that? 😆 We've been doing it for years. I have never had anyone ask if we provide the water 😆 do yall hear yourselves? Quit making shit complicated

@John Spencer so, if someone orders a cake, I can use the ingredients in their house to make it? If they order a couch, I can use whatever they have to make it? If they ask for a fur coat, do I use their dog to make it? If they order flowers, do I come to their house and chop off all the flowers they have? I guess it’s their problem their dog became a fur coat. I mean, do you just see the disconnect when you apply this to any job situation? If you are working, you have to be clear with your customers. Not be a cheap shot trying your best to squeeze as much money as you can by being dishonest and not saying “I use your water to do the job.” There is no reason to say, “I use your water in my service” other than you are nervous they might turn away, so instead you become a sleazy person, lie to them and give them an unexpected bill.

That’s actually really good advice for bad business practice. NEVER assume the customer knows anything that you’re doing. That’s just setting yourself up for future failures. ALWAYS be transparent with your clients.

@ScourgeHH Or, if you use the water without clarifying, they may state that they're not pleased with that, but do so in a calm and respectful manner. In that case, I don't think that "Karen" would be a fair label. Whether or not it's silly that they didn't expect you to use their water, I don't think that they'd be a "Karen" in that case.
ScourgeHH
ScourgeHH Vor 6 Tage
@googlewolly See here is the thing though. If they arnt a Karen, you don't need to tell them, as if they will either ask, or completely understand that it's part of the job after a little explanation. If they are a Karen, well telling them would mean you wouldn't get the job anyway, and their complaints should be ignored and can easily be countered

@ScourgeHH I feel like referring to the customer as a "Karen" merely because they may not expect you to use their water is a bit unfair. Simply clarify that you need it and you're covered.

Theres a reason companies warn you that when you cook food it will be hot. Assuming your customer just knows that your service or product is gonna do something like add to their water bill can cause a lot of problems, both financially and legally depending on the context. No matter how much you think is part of common sense, plenty of people either lack it or are out to screw you because something wasn't listed for them, maybe even they have common sense and arent out to screw you, but they just didn't know because it's not actually common sense to know something that you didn't list for them about a specific paid service

I’d still let them know beforehand so that there’s no confusion. Also with anything work like this a contract that just says “I will do x and the customer will owe me x$” is a good idea to have every customer sign. You can make it standardized so that you just make a bunch of copies. Or at the very least get all payment agreements in text or on a recording. That way there’s no money disputes.

As a small buisness owner myself I don’t think it’s smart to ever “assume” the customer knows anything… if they already knew things chances are they wouldn’t need you… have a service agreement or a prep for work page where it’s explained that their water would be used… it takes 20 minutes to type up and will save you HOURS of headache.

For those wondering, using the tank helps with the spicket not supplying water because the spicket will have little pressure coming out of it as it constantly flows into a tank that the pressure washer feeds from. If you ever worked on cars it's the same idea as having a surge tank for your fuel but in a different situation.

@Gamer's Edge exactly, customers are insane, some of them have an UNBELIEVABLE lack of awareness. Ironically enough, this is why we need capitalism.

I heard about customer that was suprised that plastering company used his tap water but material was delivered as part of 2^m price and he was furious that they have to pay water also ( many square meters times many tons of thick traditional plaster) so boss of this company always put now in agreement that water and electricity is paid by investors.. And I think it's good practice cause ppl are often totally out of our reality and can be that they just do not think about stuff like this at all

Yes, customer need to know that you're going to use their water. It's a polite approach to tell them. If they say no, then rather than argue further, pack your tools and go elsewhere. Water pressure cleaning is a hazardous job that could damage the unexpected and force water where it shouldn't be. So, be careful with where you aim the spray.

"You would never be able to bring enough water [in a tank] to do the job." That is one of the many reasons why I will never do this sort of thing, or pay someone for this service. I have neighbors that do this annually. The number of people in this country that think this is necessary, the amount of potable water it must take just to clean up something that will get dirty in 2-5 years is a waste. We are already losing sources of clean water in this country, why should we waste it on cleaning driveways and siding? This is also a good lesson on why you should avoid buying a house with PVC siding.

I work for an underground utility company that uses water to cool the tip of our direction bore machine when we bore through alleyways, and we need water both for the cooling and to make drilling a bit easier. We ALWAYS ask to use their water. Karen videos popping off have made customers out to always be irrational, but more often then not if I just explain exactly why I need their water they'll let us use it. If it's something they pay for they should know when it's being used. Because at least from my experience, when you pay someone to do something, it's more commonly understood that they'll bring what they need unless they say otherwise.

You always inform the customer you will be using their water at minimum 2-3 times during the quote and you put CSW (Customer Supplied Water) on the invoice.

The larger problem is that it's illegal to pressure clean without using a pump for the waste water flowing past the driveway. Many states/counties ban it unless you block storm drains and pump it to your own container. Professional companies don't let others believe waste water goes in the storm drains without repercussions.

Actually we always make it clear that we need access to a working spigot. Ud be surprised how many people will literally turn their water off on purpose and say oops I didn't know. So I'm gonna say as a professional u should always get it in writing that u will need access to water and that if u can't access a working spigot their will be a 100 dollar reschedule fee. This prevent all the bs games.

I had a pressure cleaning business in my hair days..... alot of work but rewarding if you communicate to customers. We were asked by city to have a water recovery system for the waste water plus get in good with the city . Good bids and proposals. Had contracts with the city plus big malls and stores & big chain restaurants. My regrets in that business was a 1/2 business partner.... plus had "no push" in business.heck of alot of time on job from fire hydrant /metered to fire hydrant from block to block for hours . The Water shortage and awareness of all that goes down our drains. 25 years later - loved the work and my Idea and walking the walk and talking the talk and running on it. Was a short term business cause of hard times. Any Idea you have to succeed- Try it !!

We make sure the customer know and it’s in contract when we have to use more than our tank can hold for big jobs!

Hey man i used to do sidewalks and stuff with a wand like that and it took forever. Try a simpson 20” surface cleaner they’re only like $350 and it cut my cleaning times in half

Don’t know how it works in America, but in Australia we have water restrictions in certain areas, the price of water is quite high in these areas, imagine a bloke mucking about and using 300 dollars worth of water hahahahah I had my carpets cleaned and they bought a truck filled with water 🤷‍♂️

I actually never even thought about it. It's definitely assumed by everyone seeking the service here. Noone brings their own water to any jobs here, regardless of the job. Unless it's a pool fill, in which case a water delivery truck is ordered. I do say, "My only requirement is access to outdoor water. I'll check if the water is on before I leave" during the quote. So in a way I am telling them ahead of time, "I'm going to be using your water".

Kinda the same idea with the tank as a capacitor in a circuit, example: A hard start kit, PSC motor(kinda needed)

So by the time you pay someone to clean your yard and after they use like 15000 gallons of your own water... Your probably saving money by just buying a water pressure gun 😂

Never assume, always let them know you'll be using thier electricity/water. I run a painting and soft chemical washing business.

This isn't even always true. I work for an answering service that answers for a ton of powerwashing companies and I'd say about 50% of the time they bring their own water. Maybe you use the client's water, but no everyone does...

You're wrong, everyone uses the customers water. They may bring "their own" water, but that is to provide a buffer for the amount the machines pull compared to how much water the spigot provides. Even with a 500gal buffer tank, a decent sized job will suck that right up.

Dude, I’ve been trying to think of a after school business for a while, you have totally inspired me, but I have one question, do I have to use chemicals on all surfaces or just surfaces with organic material
SB2H
SB2H Vor Monat
You don't necessarily ever need to use chemicals unless you're trying to remove rust, oil stains, or really bad mildew growth. Although, a pretreat/post-treat or at least a post-treatment with bleach on concrete is a good standard to have. Be careful with chemicals for house washes, you need to rinse it off before it damages certain materials.

Make sure the customer knows if you’re using chemicals. just offer it as an up charge bro and if the job needs it by default charge a different rate

As everyone else says.. Never assume the customer knows anything..talk them through your process and what you need and what they should expect out of you. Communication is key to prevent a lot of problems

I would still always make sure the customer is aware. There’s really no such thing assuming there’s a understanding with customers without talking about it. One rude customer can ruin reviews

If it's part of the agreement then it needs to be covered in the service contract. Don't make any assumptions in business, it will protect you in the future.

@SB2H all business interactions need some kind of contract. Helps with legal trouble, misunderstandings, etc. This isn’t a simple job summer job, this is an actual business.

Me and my brother used to pressure wash busses and we weren’t allowed to use their water. Pretty much we had our own tank and we filled out our own water . But if they let you, hey take advantage of it sucks filling out water tanks every morning and then dumping water we don’t use at the end of our last bus for the week

I did car lots and heavy construction for years with a Chemex in a two and a half ton truck. I had an 800 gallon tank in the bed. I never used anybody's water. Like others are saying assuming that it's okay is a problem. You always want to be clear about what you're doing and that includes letting them know if you're going to connect to their hose

What if a customer doesn't have an outdoor spigot for you to use? I live in an old house and we don't have one. We have to fill up a watering can to water outdoor plants or just wait for it to rain.

If, however, you take a commercial job (like plaza sidewalks) put in writing that they provide water. It's amazing how many even new plazas don't have external water spigots. Even with residential work, make sure the customer understands. I once cleaned a woman's pool deck (gratis--I don't do residential--she tripped the whole time because she was on well-water even though the job was free.)
