Ethanol?

Power Care Pressure Washer Pump Protector is reportedly about 14% ethanol. Presumably, the remainder is dye and water. The product is slightly basic at 8.2 pH. Obviously, ethanol will help protect from ice formation. How does ethanol provide calcium carbonate buildup protection and maintain seals? Doesn't ethanol tend to embrittle seals?

Asked by: peter
Hi peter, with an electric unit you would thread the bottle onto the inlet on your pump and squeeze the bottle to inject the fluid into the pump. Hope that helps!

Does the bottle stay connected to the gas powered washer pump inlet after protector application?

If the bottle stays connected, it seems likely to get knocked off during storage or movement and leak, or does it get removed? Can the un-used protector oil be used later for after the next washer use?
Asked by: JB
Remove the garden hose from the pump inlet. Remove the high pressure hose from the pump outlet. Disconnect the spark plug wire from the engine and/or turn OFF the pump (if equipped with an ON/OFF switch). Install the pump protector bottle to the garden hose inlet on the pump. Squeeze the bottle until the fluid drips from the high pressure pump outlet. Pull the starter cord of the engine a few times to circulate the fluid thru the pump, BUT DO NOT START THE ENGINE!!!! REMOVE THE BOTTLE AFTER APPLICATION. Replace the spark plug wire. Store the washer with the fluid in the pump until it's next use. Yes, the unused protector fluid can be used later after the next washer use.

The video have the process look simple, however, after squeezing the bottle 3 times and pulling on the starter cord 10 times I did see any protector. Any answers?? Thanks
Asked by: Dr
The only thing I can figure out is to squeeze the bottle till you see liquid come out. The liquid is clear like water. I give my machine 4 to five squeezes. The pulled the cord a few times. A extra is going to hurt. It pretty cheap compared to the price of a pump.

However, one can use only about 1/2 of the bottle for the first application. Upon attempting to use the 2nd half of the bottle for a 2nd application (after I had to use the washer during winter) I found that it is impossible to force the remaining liquid into the pump, even when turning the pump inlet vertical to assist the process. Product seems ok. Delivery method is highly flawed. Half my purchase is now wasted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disappointment I could not "inject" enough liquid into the pump area by squeezing the bottle, since it tells you to keep doing that and also pulling start cord to turn over engine a few times, until the liguid comes out the other end of the pump. Had to then go to power equipment company and get a pressurized can like the one I used successfully last year. Had hoped I could just get this at HD while buying other things, but it is not up to the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spend $10 to save More 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 3 out of 5 by from Simple Protection Good product. Bad design. Gave it a 3 Star because of that. After taking off all the labels and cover lid. I have to screw the bottle were the water hose goes in. Then squish the content in the Washer. It would have been easier if the delivery is pressurize so some of the content will not spill on the ground. Which won't do any good to the Washer.

Ryobi should tell it's customers to buy a specific brand to save the customer money and time!

I am able to get many uses out of just one bottle. I really dont know how it works but i Have just recently got the ryobi pressure washer with the subaru engine. The company reccomends this product after each use. even if the unit is going to set for one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

The nozzle does not screw on easily and the rod for my wheels is at the same height as the pump inlet / outlets. Without a flexible connector, this product can not attach without smashing the bottle and having half of it leak all over.
