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.
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 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.
