    I'm well pleased with the results on this Yorkstone. Customer could not believe the difference and they wanted to take it out because jet washing was not working.....

    This was laid down about 10 years ago and has only been jet washed by diy machines. With time black spots (lichen) appeared. I tried to jet was it myself with a 13hp Honda however it was doing little to nothing to it. Sodium hypochlorite (industrial bleach) was applied. 2nd picture is how it looked after Sodium hypochlorite. Then I jet washed it and applied more Hypo to it and then I rinsed it away with a garden hose.

    I know.

    Bit late to this oxidising party Tadgh ?

    @Krzysztof Lis
    Usually you would go in with a 5% mix
    1 litre of SH to 2 litres of water

    However if you have no previous experience with this i would not recommend using this.
