Answer: 
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!

Answer: 
Hi Sooner,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
Disconnect the spark plug and pull the starter rope (or turn the key on electric start engines) to rotate the motor several rotations. This will pull the product into the pump where it should remain.
Squeezing the bottle will not reach all of the internal areas of the pump.
Thank you for asking,
-Travis

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?

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works Easy to use. Hooked up bottle to pressure washer and flushed through. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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! November 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by waste of money, very messy like previous reviews, after attaching to washer, squeezed bottle per instructions, all ran out on the ground, pulled starter cord, more ran out. disconnected from washer, screwed the lid on bottle, threw in the trash!!!!!! use Briggs & Stratton pressurized, can get from Amazon! June 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 18, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 16, 2014
