CAR WASH IDX BT800A TIMERS

P5285514P5285519P5285517

For people that are interested…. these are IDX BIG Time timers in action! IDX is still competing in the crappy website contest. They are in the top 5 for sure…. Plus “UNDER CONSTRUCTION” on the IDX website pretty much means “it will never happen”. 🙂 Well I have waited 10 years. LOL 🙂

The IDX BT800 BT800A timers are not supported by IDX anymore and IDX will not repair the timers for you.  But if they did repair them…. it would cost to much anyway!  JK  🙂  I am pretty sure these timers were not made in China also…. because the quality of Chinese items are 100x better.  JK…. well sure!  🙂  The BT900 (which is what I thought I was purchasing at the time) are built 10x better.  But my main problem with the BT800 is it just seems for a timer at that price they should have redone the circuit board instead of using jumpers across the board?  But the reason might have been because they sold multiple versions and used the same board then had to jump things?

UPDATE 2015.05.30: I sold all four of these timers. I really did like these timers. But to be honest…. I purchased them and just never installed credit cards and well…. these timers. LOL 🙂 My other problem was the plastic housing…. I personally felt the housing needed to be metal. But the guy I purchased the timers from said he used them with plastic housings? So I guess plastic is fine? 🙂

The reason the purchaser said he had to purchase this timer BT800 over the BT900 was because the BT800 had the capabilities of displaying the message upside down!  No I do not know how to achieve this.  Weird that they removed this function though?

Hamilton Changer Part 100-0099 Car Wash Single Stacker Comb Kit

part

Yeah…. I have this part! To bad this ebay listing and Kleen-Rite do not explain what this part is for. I assume it is for the Hamilton bill acceptors? Rowe had something similar. This is also a reason I hate ebay. KR’s price is $21.60 plus shipping and the ebay guy is $21.98 shipped. I pick KR for sure…. I want to save more money to pick a less know vendor.

Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 with Red Lion CL20 CL20010

17040409198_4ab4e02c9f_z17020765627_1405f13042_z17040655560_77d00b636f_z

Do you have a Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 or 2.0? Do you know where the data is stored on the unit? I was over at Greg’s wash the other day and during normal conversation this came up. Seems normal right? LOL 🙂 Well I have researched the redlion cl20 and how to program the device in the past but I got confused with the answer to the question. I thought this might help someone? If anyone knows or cares how stuff works? 🙂 The plc actually stores the data and the red lion is just the interface. Which the guy that corrected me immediately reminded me of that fact. I also checked it indirectly today while testing my new/used red lion I just purchased for way to much money! Which confirms the red lion does not store data. JFYI

Also the Red Lion is just an interface…. like your tv and your remote which is programmable. You do not leave on your tv to record things do you? DO NOT ANSWER YES! 🙂

What is also interesting about not caring about how anything works…. besides the large percentage of car wash owners. My guess is 75% mostly express people. Computer programmers were bad also…. some programmers did not even know basic information about the box they programmed on all day. Some never even visited it! I visited all the computer rooms everyday…. even when there was no need to! LOL 🙂

Box of random parts…. Can you guess what they are from? :)

carwashsuperstore.com foam brush hose crap?

Is cws or national prides low pressure hose crap?  Or everyone’s pre-made low pressure hose good?  I have never purchased this stuff ever before.  It always looks cheap…. my Dad uses premade lp stuff.  🙂  I’m not sure where he purchases his from though? 

I usually use push lock hose which I should have again but I was lazy….. Kind of like how CWS attach the hose guard on!  All 4 in all my bays already look the exact same…. I would say why @$&*# bother?  It actually looks worse then before?

Also the elapse time was 4 days…. Good job.   🙂
