The Roofster is an exceptional pump skid system made expressly to pump extra strong chlorine and other corrosive chemicals. The Roofster is exclusively sold by Sun Brite Supply.
This is a chlorine-proof pump driven by a 7 HP gas engine and mounted on an aircraft-aluminum skid frame with rubber isolating feet.
This is the only gas-powered system designed to stand up to highly corrosive products like bleach. When coupled with the Roofster gun, this unit will shoot bleach up to 40' at the rate of 5 GPM. This makes it the ideal tool for cleaning roofs and other soft-wash functions.
This pump is warranted for a full year by the manufacturer, even for use with up to 10% sodium hypochlorite!
There are less expensive systems on the market, but those systems are plagued by pump breakdowns right when you need reliability - on the job. This pump, which we consider "bleach-proof", is constructed with polypropylene and chemical-resistant stainless steel. The pump skid includes a gear-reduction transmission to run the pump at a long-lasting 650 RPM, so the pump has exceptional durability. This pump will give you the longevity that electric pumps just cannot deliver. With reasonable care, the pump should hold up for several years before requiring replacement.
Since this is a low-pressure system, you might add a downstream injector to your Roofster. This allows you to add soap to the stream of bleach without pre-mixing them. This will limit the "throw distance" of your Roofster, however.
The factory rates this pump at 4.3 GPM, but our test model delivered a consistent 5 GPM with our gas engine. The skid unit includes a regulator that limits the overall delivery force to 150 PSI. This Bleach Pump was run-tested for months without any problems whatsoever - and the cost of this rig is lower than any comparable set-up we have seen!
Using strong bleach is a favorite way to clean mold and algae off roofs and other surfaces too steep to walk on. Spraying strong sodium hypochlorite kills the mold fast. Problem is, this is such a corrosive chemical that it also attacks the equipment used to spray it.
This is the most economical answer we could develop to deal with those sorts of corrosive chemicals.
We achieved streams of 40 feet consistently at approximately 5 GPM during our testing process.
You can order your Roofster as a Kit and assemble your own custom rig using your tank, or you can order a complete Slide-In rig all built and ready to go.
Please keep in mind that a Roofster is made-to-order and can take 10 business days to produce."All the people at Sunbrite Supply that I dealt with were very prompt, helpful, friendly and patient. Just getting into the pressure cleaning biz I knew very little. The staff at Sunbrite Supply were very instrumental in getting me going with the right equipment and procedure to do a professional job. The pricing is excellent and I got my equipment quickly. I highly recommend them." Peter B, Pennsylvania
