Roof cleaning and Pressure Washer

Has anyone used a pressure washer to clean your roof and what were the results. Interesting to know if this is a good idea.

Boy I don't believe I'd do this.
It would be waaaay to easy to blow pressurized water through the rubber roof.

I do it every year. 3 years running. I keep the pressure down and use the widest angle tip. Works for me.

I tried it with the very wide spray tip that produces just a little more pressure that a water hose at any one point last year, did not help much. A brush and water hose works better.

Yes I've done it with a gentle soap solution and always keep the nozzle at least 6" away. let the cleanser do the work
