I bought a Suttner ST-54 Dual Lance and was wondering about tips for it. I am thinking this may be the perfect gun for doing single story houses. Open valve, apply chems. Dwell and close valve and rinse.

Question I have is regarding what the best tip would be to have on the high pressure side for rinsing. Esentially I would like to have the most flow that I can get without it causing enough suction to keep pulling from the downstreamer. I have a 4040 tip in the soap side of the lance but want to have the most volume without soap on the other side for the most efficient rinsing possible. I am sure this has to do with the particular downstreamer as well but some ideas on where to start experimenting would be helpful. Thanks!

Any suggestions?

Need to know specs on your machine to answer. Also, you should place a qdc on wand so that you can exchange tips as needed.

A 25 0r 4010. I know you've already bought the dual wand, but they are heavy. You can use a rollover nozzle (or dual tip nozzle) with a single wand. Same function, less fatigue. To me, changing tips is no big deal. With 3-5 in your pocket you have different patterns, pressure's etc.

Thanks Dan. I will get those tips as a starting point. You are right the dual lance is a bit heavy but I need the exercise to get my biceps into shape! :laughing:

I like the dual lance. Especially with a turbo nozzle. Turn of the wrist and get good control of pressure/flow. Same with a higher pressure tip; just turn wrist and get flow when it's needed or pressure for a tough spot.
