    Q:Can this product be used with 1900 psi ryobi electric pressure washer? There seem to be several comments regarding how hard it is to get fluid in marine, even questioning if this product works with all the different models. Ours is RY1419mtvnm

        A:  Cheers!! I live in Puerto Rico and our average temperature in summer is 101 degrees and in winter 60 degrees. we have a very different climate, I store it in the closet of the marquee and I have never had problems using the product. I hope this information is helpful to you. Thanks!! José

        by|Jun 27, 2022

          A:  To me the hotter temps are the critical ones. Check the label regarding max. temp., but it should be around 120° max.

              Q:How do I get this to work with an electric pressure washer? Obviously, there is no starter rope to pull. No matter how much I squeeze the bottle, I can't get it to come out (yes, I removed the seal). The Ryobi instructions for my machine give no help.

              Answer This Question

              A:  No problem for me - I just followed the instructions to the 'T'. Make sure you remove the seal beneath the flap with the 'X' in it or you will indeed get nothing out of the bottle.

              by|Nov 20, 2022

                A:  It does take some force. Usually 3 or 4 squeezes will have the lube show. Squeeze it into the hose attachment. Because I use the washer irregularly like once a year, it sits up alot. When the lube comes through I stop. Hope this is of assistance.

                    A:  Run the machine for a very short period until you see droplets coming out and then shut it down. The membrane (diaphragm) with the X in it has to be there or it doesn’t work. I also squeezed a little on the bottle as it was running. Instructions not useful at all. Good luck.

                      A:  Our Ryobi pressure washer is an electric as well. Attach the bottle where the water hose would normally connect and squeeze very, very, very hard until you just start to see it going out the pressure hose outlet. Almost more than this 80 yr old was capable of. Besides squuzing like your life depended on it, you can also "pulse" the bottle between squuzes. That's what I did. Wasn't easy that's for sure.

                      Works well if you know what you are doing.
                      I have used this product to maintain my pressure washer after each use. Some reviewers don’t seem to understand that there is a foil cover on the bottle that needs to be removed before squeezing the bottle. Some of the do it yourself people lack common sense and practical skills

                        I purchased this product for use in a new Ryobi 142300 Electric pressure washer. I experienced the same negative installation problems that are discussed in many of the reviews. No matter how hard I tried to squeeze the bottle, I could not get the liquid to dispense from the container into the pressure pump. I took 2- 2x8 precut boards, stood them on end and placed them snuggly under the attached bottle of Power Care Pressure Washer bottle. I gently placed my knee on the bottle and slowly began to exert more and more pressure on the bottle until the fluid began to flow from the pressure side of the outlet. I may have used about 3 to 4 oz. When my recent purchase is used up, I plan on refilling the bottle with a top grade engine coolant/antifreeze. Save yourself some money but remember to keep a valid receipt of your Power Care Pressure Washer purchase for Warranty reasons.

                          I was able to manually dispense this into my electric RYOBI pressure washer with no problem. It came out the other end without any issue. I almost forgot to remove the seal before placing the bottle on my pressure washer. Possibly other users are having the same problem because they did not remove the seal. Hopefully this makes my pressure washer last for years to come. I would gladly buy this product again.

                          Grass lubricated!
                          Followed directions, Pump protector failed to enter pump. Attempted multiple times tilting, squeezing and pulling recoil per instructions. Failed to enter and exit my pump. Power Care needs to state what pressure washers this will work with instead of collecting money for a failed product.

                            Very easy to use. I have an electric washer, so it was as simple as removing the seal, screwing into the hose input of the pump, and squeezing until the fluid comes out the pressure wand output pipe . Less than about 3 min for the whole operation.
