Deck/fencing help
For unknown reasons an electric powerwasher will NOT work with my electric system. 😡

I'm looking for suggestions for cleaning my deck and fence; there's green ?algae? on it. I'm currently hand washing using Simple Green, vinegar, and water.

I want something that

will clean

(My deck is of man made material, not wood)

Re: Deck/fencing help
Can you rent or borrow a gas power washer, and just use the water pressure, no chemical cleaner in it?
What about a hose attachment nozzle that can make your water hose have a more powerful spray? You could use your own concoction of a "Windex Window Washer" - i.e., a bottle attachment with spray applicator, that mixes a cleaning solution spray with your hose water. You can make your own non-toxic solution and spray it on. Let it sit for awhile, and then maybe attach a stronger water-jet nozzle and spray it off.

Sorry four the late response, I'm going to try that (gas powered) in the fall (it's already too hot here)

snerk - here it is a year later and DS and I are washing the fence by hand.

I've tried to discuss renting a power washer with him (I rent, he washes) but .... sigh
