Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LouisvilleVicar Easy to Use, Saves Expensive Pump
Bought a Subaru Pressure Washer that recommended using this kind of lubricant every time. At $10 a bottle, I first thought this was going to be an expensive proposition. It turns out a bottle has about a dozen or so doses, so it's a good value.
What it does is preserves the seals in the pump, which is a common cause of expensive pump failure. Using this preserves my warranty, which is also good. Just screw it in, pull the start cord in the ignition- off position once or twice, then unscrew it. Good value for what it does.

Easy to use. Hooked up bottle to pressure washer and flushed through.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GAHunter1973 Simple to use
Simple to use, takes about 5 minutes to complete the process from start to finish. I'm guessing you should be able to get 10-12 uses per bottle; based on the amount I've used in my unit so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimA Worked great!
I have a Generac 3,100 PSI 2.8 GPM OneWash Variable Speed Gas Pressure Washer that performs great. However, it had problems building initial pressure between uses even after a short storage. It took a few presses of the wand trigger to finally get working pressure. I came to the conclusion that even though the pump is brass the pistons may have frozen or stuck. The logical cure was to add a lubricant to the pump before any storage. This was the only pump lubricant carried by HD so I thought I'd give it a try. It was just what the doctor ordered. The pump now builds pressure the first time I depress the pressure wand trigger. I had no issues with spilling or loosing the lubricant because of leakage. Highly recommended between any storage, even for just a few days.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bud Product Unuseable
Product unuseable because of poor manufacturing. The cap pops off when you try and squeeze the product into the pump. A cheap split washer was used and the threads on the bottle will not allow you to tighten it down. Almost looks as if it was cross threaded. Pretty much a junk product!

I bought this to help protect my pump during the winter storage. Two years ago I didn't use anything and when I I pulled out my pressure washer last spring, the pump was killed with dry rot. Upon recommendation from my Home Depot associate, I bought this for last winter and when I broke out my Pressure Washer this weekend, it worked perfectly!
It was really easy to use, I just screwed it in to where my garden hose connects, and squeezed the bottle, then pulled the start cord until I saw the pump protector drip out where the high pressure hose hooks up.
Very easy, I would recommend to anyone.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by darren very difficult to apply to my pressure washer
this is very difficult to apply to a high pressure washer pump. you basically have to squeeze the bottle to force it into the pump. it may just be the type of pump I have, but I had to squeeze do hard that the liquid burst the seal of the bottle and just poured out on the floor. Home Depot use to sell a pump protector that was in a pressurized bottle, it worked well.
