Pressure Washers & Chemicals

Just bought a Husky 1750psi Pressure Washer.
The instructions are unclear on this point: when you are using a chemical (in my case, a degreaser for the garage floor) with the pressure washer, do you pour the undiluted chemical into the reservoir of the pressure washer OR do you first dilute the chemical with water according to the manufacturer's instructions.
TIA, bob

never worked on husky's, but i i am sure it's like general, cat , etc. that "reservoir" is for cleeeeean water for the pump. you should have an injection line on the output side of the pump . with a little adjustment knob. works through siphoning . if your pump didn't come w/ one you can buy one it's easy to install.

To degrease a floor you may need the degreaser on the floor and worked in for a while with a pole brush or floor scrubbing machine. I had to use a floor scrubber and apx 50$ in soaps to remove 70 yrs of old oil. Id use it full strength in the resivour as it will dilute anyway. But you may need to redo it the hard way if it doesnt work.

You pour undiluted chemical into the tank. The siphoning action will mix the chemical with the water and it will be about a 10 (water) to 1(chemical) mixture out of the hose. NOTE. The chemical will only be siphoned out when using the lowest pressure tip or wand setting, not on high power like a car wash. After use put water only in the tank and let it siphon out so the chemical pickup will not be destroyed. Especially if you use bleach in the tank.

put it in raw - it mixes as you have the nozzle on the dispensing setting
