    Hey Larry I use Caustic Soda for grease and I use F-13 for gutters. Is F-13 a butyl based sodium Hydroxide? I thought that caustic soda beads was sodium hydroxide. I am guessing that I have been thinking wrong ey?
    I was wondering if a really strong on the F-13 "wild cherry" mix would cut it.

    I just posted this one over here so maybe Bob can tell us a little about that F-13.hehe

    I would try just hot water... unless they have asked for them to be "brightened" cold water works well too.
    one thing to remember is most chems are corrosive so you have to be careful what to use.. I would stay away from caustic for sure!! I wash all 160,000 seats at Bristol Motor Speedway and 90% are aluminum

    Hot Water demo went great, my next question is how do you price these? Daniel how long does it take your guys to knock that kinda quantity down? Do you use a surface cleaner in the areas that it will fit? Thanks for any info.

    Took us 2 days with 5 wands going to clean the home and visitor sides of a local high school. Very little was able to be cleaned using a surface cleaner so it nearly all was wanded using cold water. I knew it was going to take longer than anticipated but it still surprised me all said and done. Super simple project .... just A LOT of it!

    Re: Cleaning Aluminum Bleachers

    I cleaned baseball field bleachers for the past 4years. I used a little house wash and high pressure and wand it. For any grease use some heat. But the high pressure wand is the trick. Dont use any degreaser.
    My wand has a hi and low pressure so I see just how much pressure is working less is better. It has two nozzles one for soap low pressure and one for high pressure. Handle on the side so you can dail in what working. Is far the best wand to have.

    Cleaning Aluminum Bleachers

    We did a high school stadium back in August. I'm with Greg... Simple project, but a lot of it.

    We actually cleaned the seat tops and walkways with our classics and then cut in and rinsed with wands. If not for that the 2 of us wouldn't have been able to finish it in 2 days.

    Completing a stadium now. Classic on flat areas, turbo underneath seats and heat for the gum. Collect check and move on.
