Thread: 10 GPM Verse 8GPM ????

  1. #1

    10 GPM Verse 8GPM ????

    Wondering what you guys that have run both think.

    Do you run 3/8 inch hose? I herd to get anything more then 8 gpm of water out of a machine requires 1/2 hose?? So if your running a 8gpm and 10gpm off a 3/8 hose can you tell the difference in flow?


    Any thoughts advice and comments welcomed.


    Thanks

    Yes we get more flow from our 10gpm then 8gpm when we use 3/8" hose. Noticeably difference that is.

    hey JT what is your psi on the 8 and the 10? I am thinking I might go with a 2500 psi on a 10 gpm but a little worried that wont be enough for cement cleaning with 200 300 ft of hose

    Dave,
    With 3/8 hose and 8gpm you loose 3psi per foot ( 300psi per 100'hose) 10 gpm and 3/8 hose is " off the chart"
    10 gpm and 1/2" hose is 1.2psi per foot.

    Both the 10&8gpm pumps are set at 3600 psi. The 10 is a Udor & the 8 is a General.

    We're running a 10gpm at 2500psi machine with 3/8's hose and I feel works great for our needs. If we did mucho flatwork like John T. I would consider moving to 1/2" hose.....but for us 3/8's is no problem.

    Dave,
    Is the 10gpm @2500 psi a special build? I don't see many companies advertise for that. I run a 8gpm machine @1750 psi but predominately do houses, but would also consider 10gpm.
    Thanks,

    The results are in !! as usual I have to find out for myself with first hand experience like I did with a 5.5 to a 8 gpm

    well with a 3/8 hose the 10 gpm blows the doors off the 8 gpm, huge difference, doing jobs much faster which means more efficient, wich means more $$$$, this is a great business !!

    What are you using for chemical injection? From my understanding it is difficult to DS with 10gpm
