So, you've replaced the convenient, easy-to-use aerosol can with hose that was snap to use with... this. It's clumsy and if you screw it on just tight enough to keep it from leaking you'll need channel-locks to get it off again. Thanks...

I would use something to grip the connector and unscrew it. Failing that, you should be able to cut the plastic and remove the connector.

Hi Pbrods Thanks for your inquiry. Once you attach the bottle to the inlet tube. Someone will need to squeeze and someone else will need to pull the start rope at the same time. There's a video on the Home Depot website, just type in "POWERCARE pump protector" to find it. Thanks for reaching out to us. Best Regards Thank you for contacting POWERCARETTI

Do the instructions say to open bottle top and remove foil security tab before squeezing the bottle?

Asked by Patrick September 18, 2019
5
Answers

Yes. The instructions tell you to remove the foil seal before you squeeze the bottle. The instructions, however, DO NOT tell you what to do if you can't squeeze the bottle (presumably because the pressure washer pump intake valve is positioned in such a way that you can't force fluid into it.) This is very frustrating. The workaround is to affix the bottle to the intake port, and run the pump, manually. It's not a good solution, but it is the only one that I've found.

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.
