Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kendiana Worthless
I was hoping this product would give me the same results I get at the "pay carwash". The packaging and graphics are first class. But that's where it ends. I am now returning my 4th unit. They all leak very badly. And worse yet the 2nd and 4th unit blew the front plexiglass right off the injector. Literally scared me to death. It sounded like a shotgun blast. Terrible product. DO NOT waste your time or money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Enerbunny Total waste of money.
The jar started to leak after about 15 minutes and the clamp to hold the jar on is worthless. After rinsing and air drying the jar, the lid would not go back on. This is because the rubber seal/gasket is the wrong size or the gasket became swollen due to exposure the the cleaner (which was the G-Clean mold cleaner).
Overall, very disappointing and a waste of money as I purchased several cleaners to use with the device and the sealer and sealer nozzle. I will never purchase another G-Clean product and recommend that you do not buy any either.

After reading the reviews on this product, I thought maybe they had purchased a bad item. NOT!!
When I opened the box, out fell an o-ring that there is no reference for in the instructions. I emailed the company and made a phone call. They said the o-ring was indeed meant to be installed in the end cap. One of the reasons for asking about the o-ring was because I could tell it was too small for the end cap.
I assembled the product as per instructions, the clip holding the unit onto frame of washer is also a poor design.
I never got soap to actually work, because the cap would never seal, water was shooting out of the cap threads. Until the manufacture can fix some of the problems DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

As the other reviewer stated ,, this thing can not handle a gas pressure washers vibration ,, and even then it is hard to get the cap on and off due to the bad design .. the retention clip meant to snap the unit to the washer fails , and the plastic housing cracks ..
I am on my second one and it is going back

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 The soap container is cheap and cracks with pressure washer vibration. It would be better if it was brass.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Xeiran Vertical model works decently
Like @JustTryIt, this is a review for the newer "D" version vertical model (as opposed to the older "B" version horizontal model pictured). I too found HomeDepot had both models and purchased the vertical unit.
It performs tolerably well and unlike the reviews of the B model, the D model is pretty well made. Seals are properly sized and the plastic of high enough quality that I did not experience any of the leakage, sealing or thread stripping problems others mentioned for the older unit. It uses a velcro strap to hold the unit to the side of the pressure washer. The strap is decently made and held the unit tightly during the hour the unit was in use, however a better mounting system is needed to adequately hold the unit vertical (see below). As @JustTryIt mentioned, the 18 inch connector hose is stiff and tightly wound, and while it connects securely, it will pull the water unit out of vertical alignment unless you secure the connector hose separately with some straps or ties.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE UNIT REMAIN VERTICAL. This is because it relies on vacuum to supply the soap. If the unit is pulled to a sideways or horizontal position, the liquid soap will touch the vacuum inlet and get sucked into the stream and supply soap regardless of whether the soap switch is turned on or off. I had this problem at first and nearly rate the unit worse until I realized what was happening and corrected the issue.
Unfortunately, the instructions do not appear to mention this as a possible problem, let alone how to correct it. Combined with a mounting system that is not quite adequate to prevent this problem without additional measures, means I can only give the unit 4 stars. It otherwise performs quite well and I am happy with the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MScotty Giving it a try.
As others have mentioned, for the $ I figured I'd give it a try if if didn't like it I'd return it. I purchased the vertical model, all the HD's in my area had this one, some had the one as pictured here which did look to be lighter duty. At first the unit leaked until I snugged it up more, thought it was tight the first time?
And the vetcro strap is a bit chinsey, so for the time I backed it up with a bungy cord.
The detergent pack to me didn't last as long as expected, they say they equal a gallon of detergent.
I guess the main reason I bought it though is that it says that the detergents will also clean and conditon the pump, I do use the pump winterizers(the ones in the spray cans), but thats just for the winter, during the season I just try to get as much water out as possible and pour some RV antifreeze into it.
