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.

I rated average since screwing on the cap the Protector spilled all over the workbench. I ended up turning the Pressure Washer on its side and pouring the Protector into the hose connection instead of screwing it on.

I have used Powercare before and it works great to protect and extend the life of the pump in my pressure washer. I highly recommend it.
