What do you guys use to keep your machines clean ? . Got a sp11 and want to spray it with either silicone or diesel before using it to help stop render sticking to it , making it easier to jet wash off .

I've got a load of parex scratch render off other jobs , could I use them as a base coat then top with weber
Normally we are weber users , last couple of jobs we have been using parex and I have noticed a few tiger stripes . Back on weber this week and not a stipe in sight .
Dies anyone know how these are caused ?

We're approved , you need to contact weber and they will come out and monitor your work until they are happy with your standard .
no charge involved ,it also depends if they are taking on any more applicators.
