    Default Repairing screens / Not damaging them in the first place

    Okay.

    Two questions.

    1) How does one typically repair a screen, if it gets ripped near the edge? Is there some type of screen-repairing tape I can use?

    2) Any tips on not ripping screens when powerwashing? I try not to use the highest power, and try to stay away from the edges but this is the second time I've end up blowing a hole in one of them.

    Yeah, that's probably the best idea.

    But it's a small tear and it doesn't seem to have affected the tension.

    Also, I have no idea how to restretch a screen myself, so I end up having to pay someone way too much to do it.

    screen glue for all rips near the edge. it will last till the next time you put a hole in it.

    Always keep the water spray moving side to side. Can you adjust the fan profile of the spray? I have two nozzles, one is circular, and with enough pressure and my mind wandering, it would rip a hole easy. I use the fan one that gives me a 6-8" cleaning spray.

    Seems ot work.

    Don't obsess about your screen gutters, you only print through the center area.

    Clean from the backside through.
