Discussing Water Wizard 1.0 and 2.0 Tri Foam…. DID YOU KNOW! :)

Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0

Jim Coleman Water Wizard 2.0

The Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 uses 3 tri-foam pvc sticks….
The Jim Coleman Water Wizard 2.0 uses 1 tri-foam pvc stick….
Greg had to explain to me how the WW2 produced tri-foam because I was not thinking at all! But it make common sense…. The tri-foam on the WW2 works just like…. wait for it…. rotation TRI-FOAM! LOL 🙂

So which Tri-Foam does a better job?  The WW1 or the WW2 Tri-Foam?  Well people can argue about anything…. But I am pretty sure very few people (besides Jim Coleman employees) can disagree that the WW2 Tri-Foam is worse for the customers. The WW2 uses the rotating chemical obviously as a space saving solution…. But there appears to be plenty of room? So I assume it is because of labor cost…. Because everyone knows the WW2 is cheaper than the WW1! What…. The WW2 cost more? Oh…. Oh Okay.

Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 and 2.0 Count Wheel


The first picture (white motor) is from a Water Wizard 1.
The second picture (black bag) is from a Water Wizard 2.

I am not familiar with the WW 2.0 but it appears from the pictures that the 2.0 has 2 sensors where the WW 1.0 has 1 sensor…. For counting.

Also just as a note: The WW 1.0 wheel is supposally a 5.5×1.5 plastic lawnmower wheel
I actually purchased an extra…. It is somewhere! 🙂

Not sure if it is true but just passing crap along….

I have heard worse propaganda everyday from more reliable sources…. am I wrong?  🙂  I have also got burned my bad iphones….  So this seems legit.

So last night at baseball / t-ball practice.  This lady on our team went through this long drawn out story about how her Mother worked in technology as a programmer and made her take classes in college…. BLA BLA BLA.  Everyone was chiming in…. Computers suck…. I hate them…. Normal work stuff you hear.

Then she says…. her Mother works at Apple.  She claims her Mother always tells her when or if she should purchase a new iphone etc.  Not to hard to believe…. but very generic information…. But why would someone lie about where their parents worked?  (Anyone could make this prediction also…. According to articles they are having problems with the iphone x and the watch?  This does not matter though.)  Bottom line…. Her Mother said do not purchase the new iphone 8.

Disclaimer:  I have mention I do not use an iphone and do not agree with the leadership at apple multiple times.  But I have talked to my Wife preciously about purchasing an iphone 8 which I would probably not purchase now…. Probably just software issues though?  But I did not ask.

I am not sure if I should be OFFENDED by Budweiser or not? DO NOT TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

Let’s be honest here…. Doesn’t everyone tell us what to do? Doesn’t it get worse every day? Especially if you are married…. Am I WRONG! 🙂 Now it is Budweiser! 🙂 Maybe I do not want to “RISE UP” and get another frosty beverage! But maybe I do! 🙂  Plus why is BUD LIGHT RED!

So I was getting a non or alcoholic beverage (I forgot 🙂 ) that said something on it today…. “RISE UP”…. What? RISE UP against the crappy service you receive at Express Car Washes? Everyone should just go to a Self Serve Car Washes right Budweiser? Okay…. Or full service. I think this is what Budweiser was saying?! 🙂

Did you guys think I was going to comment on the National Anthem thing? Like I would make a statement that Budweiser was telling temporarily rich random people to rise for the National Anthem? Please…. I just realized the NFL was still playing games. 🙂  I mean they disbanded the NBA after Jordan right?  🙂

I LOVE Watching People WORK…. I could watch it all day! Well…. not all day you probably have to be outside! :)

Greg was pulling out a Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 and installing a Water Wizard 2.0.  Greg had a couple guys up at his wash which were pretty good and you can pick up some good tips just watching people…. Or harassing people!  LOL 🙂

My tips today were not from the tech guys…. but from Greg though.  Thought I would share them.

I believe everyone has had that set of sockets in that crappy case.  When that case craps out…. What do you do?  Purchase a new SET!  🙂  Well I learned the solution for my box and tool chest drawers full of sockets. (Well it probably will be easier to just purchase a new set then put it on the holder…. Right? 🙂 )

Below is how Greg demonstrated the Ernst socket holder…. I purchased it ASAP! 🙂

Another tool I would never think of having but both Greg and the tech were using was an extension for your drill or impact.  I need to pick one up it will probably come in handy. http://amzn.to/2fpljgr

I tried to figure out how to unscrew something with no clearance one time and purchase this item. http://amzn.to/2y17ufM I had to use it once…. I am surprised how many times I have grabbed this silly thing. So if this is handy…. the extension is handy also. LOL 🙂

If you are looking for sockets I just picked up some deep and shallow metric sets. Both cheap…. The Tekton are nice the Stanley came in a cheap case which did not close correctly and good luck figuring out what you are looking for. 🙂 But the Stanley were pretty cheap. I have used a 500 ft/lbs impact with no problem with the Stanley impact set…. So they are good? 🙂

BTW Amazon has their NitroCat impacts on 15% off…. I got the smaller 1375-XL http://amzn.to/2wKsBCP

WHAT! You have a changer?

I had an older guy yesterday ask me for change. He said he “forgot to get change before he came to the car wash this time.” I said “No sorry…. I do not have change but you can get change from this device that can actually verify bills and give the correct change….. Every Time I just installed it! It is unbelievable!”….. Actually I just said “No sorry…. But you can get change here.”

The moral of the story should be post signs…. But does a changer really give change? 🙂 There are so many ways to say it…. I should have been keeping a list how customers ask for it. Maybe people just do not understand what a changer is?

Maybe if the changer was called a bill breaker? (I know what you elitist believe a bill breaker is! LOL 🙂 ) Or maybe a case quarter maker? But I did not have a clue what a “case quarter” was…. So maybe “Case Quarter Bill Changer”…. Or “Changer” for short…. I am glad I have single handedly come up with the standard for the industry. But let’s be honest here…. Just because I do not write free paid ads for bad magazines or do unpaid ad speeches (which I have done 🙂 ) does not mean I can not make up crap just like any stupid owner or another guy who owns or runs a crappy company. OMG…. I dare to say I am different…. I have owned a…. Wait for it…. Actually this does not matter at all if you own a car wash! LOL 🙂  Why?  Maybe not so must in the case quarter bill changer market but others.

So everyone in all industries from this day forward use the term “Changer”…. I am the most knowledgeable car wash person in this room at this time! (Actually this is a fact! No negotiating allowed…. Also the best at…. Well everything…. I am the only person in the room! LOL 🙂 )  Or you could just use something like the image above…. but of course the above image is not allowed to be used and you must pay me for my phone art!  🙂

I joke about the iphone but seriously how often do you restart it?

My wife has an iPhone 7 plus and I recommended that she should restart it every night. But she thought I was kidding…. It just seems like a buggy os / phone? Also the battery life seems bad for a new phone.

So does anyone have a restarting routine? I actually do not have one for my Android phone but I do not remember any weird problems? My wife seems to constantly complain about it.

BTW Her common problem are the lock screen and no audio on phone calls…. Could be human error! But restarting the phone always fixes the problem? Today the problem was the Bluetooth quit working and the phone claimed it was trying to connect…. Restarted the phone and the Bluetooth was actually turned off? Turned blue on and everything worked fine…. She has been complain about it for a week.

Android weird problem I have…. Same all the time. App related…. App deletes and refreshes directories incorrectly. You can wait or restart for the os to fix or refresh the problem. I should find a new app though! LOL 🙂 Stupid apple texts…. But then again they are related to a wife issue. LOL 🙂

PRO TIP: Best feature on any phone…. Fast charging! Worth upgrading your phone. It is that great!
