You will find pressure washing takes a significant amount of pre and post-work in addition to the actual work, and pressure washing the front and back patio along with the driveway/walkway meant disconnecting/moving/reconnecting the pressure washing setup several times (5-10 minutes each time), moving furniture and putting it back (5-10 minutes each time), I also had to get a car moved which ate up about 15 minutes. Included in that time is also the time spent filming before and after shots with the drone (probably five minutes setup/work for a few 2-second shots each time) as well as before and after pictures with the camera/tripod (probably 3 minutes each time), and also moving the camera and changing batteries during the work itself (probably 20 minutes worth of time there). Don't forget the first setup getting everything out of the truck and trailer, and the last breakdown putting it all back in and draining hoses, which is easily another 20 minutes. Lastly, cleaning with the nozzle takes much longer than a surface cleaner. Q: Why didn't you use a surface cleaner? A: Unfortunately my 20" surface cleaner streaks. I think it is too large for my pressure washer. Also, videos that feature my surface cleaner do more poorly than using the wand. I don't think it creates as satisfying an experience, but who knows? Q: Isn't this a re-upload? A: I often make multiple versions of videos for varying attention spans. The previous version was 1 minute long and was more of a gag. This video is for folks who enjoy the noise or have more time on their hands.

4:20 This takes so much longer in real life
4:31 This fence and the sun were such a pain to film with
5:04 Good example, the sun reflects off the water, and the fence casts a harsh shadow
5:26 Oh well, can't control the weather, right?
5:48 Getting closer to the shadow can help sometimes.
5:59 So close, yet so far
6:23 I keep myself going by thinking 'I only have X squares left!'
6:30 Obviously the last is always the biggest 😀

Pressure washing or power washing is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, chewing gum, and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles, and concrete surfaces. The volume of a mechanical pressure washer is expressed in gallons or liters per minute. The pressure, expressed in pounds per square inch, pascals, or bar, is designed into the pump but can be varied by adjusting the unloader valve. Machines that produce pressures from 750 to 30,000 psi (5 to 200 MPa) or more are available.
