        Q:Will this discolor pavers?
        by|Sep 29, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  The ER100 is a masonry cleaner and should not discolor pavers when properly diluted, used and neutralized(4 gallons of water mixed with one quart of house-hold ammonia). It's an acid detergent mixture.

          Hi! The ER100 is for removing efflorescence. Depending on the severity of the efflorescence, you may need to adjust the dilution ratio. If you have questions about how much to dilute the ER100, or how to use it to remove the efflorescence once the cleaner has been applied, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly so we can walk you through it. If you are looking for a brick cleaner hower, the Armor MSC100 is a better option. We look forward to hearing from you!

          The produce foamed as though it reacted to the efflorescence, but after vigorous scrubbing with full-strength product AND a pressure washer rinse, the condition of the brick was unchanged. Will not purchase again.

          Thank you for taking the time to post a review! It is normal for the product to foam, but there are a few things we could suggest changing to help make removing the efflorescence easier for you. If you could reach out to us, we would be more than happy to go over the application in more detail and help you to remove your stubborn efflorescence! Thank you and have a great day!

          I used this product on new pavestones with efflorescence. I diluted this product 1:1 with water and it didn't do such a great job. I used the entire gallon. Next, I ordered another gallon and applied it directly to the pavestones, without diluting it with water, and had the same results. It works ok if you scrub the pavestones with a brush and rinse them with wanter under high pressure. 1 gal doesn't go very far, as I used 2 gal for approximately 200 sq. ft. However, it is way better than using vinegar. I just expected the solution to have better results due to the price. I still have another 100 sq. ft to go

            Works as Expected and Great Customer Service
            Customer service was great! I emailed their customer service team several times with questions and each time they responded promptly and addressed my question. The product worked well on my new concrete paver patio to prepare the pavers for sealing. I will look for their brand of products to buy in the future.

              Bought the product to get brick pavers on our patio ready to be sealed. Followed the instructions and the product worked well. We have now sealed our pavers and our patio looks great.
