There have been many instances when people have tried to use Dawn dish soap or laundry detergent to create their own pressure washer soap. Although it is possible to use the two in your pressure washer, you risk clogging it if you don`t dilute them.
Let`s make one thing clear right away though – only use pressure washer certified detergent with your equipment. These detergents are specifically made to work with pressure washers and get you the most effective, efficient cleaning solution possible.
You can use almost any type of liquid soap or detergent with a pressure washer, although there are pressure washer-specific detergents for jobs of all types. Your pressure washer will have a siphon hose or basin of some type, which you fill with the desired soap.
1. Best Overall Concrete Cleaner—ZEP Purple Pressure Wash. Zep concrete cleaner has several great products, and the ZEP Purple Pressure Wash outdoor cleaner is no exception. This alkaline cleaner is low foaming and easy to rinse from the concrete surface.
A pump doesn`t have an oil filter. That`s why it is recommended to use non-detergent oil in pressure cleaner pumps. If you use detergent oil in a pump, all the contaminates it cleans off the surfaces will be flowing through the oil. This increases the risk of wear inside the pump.
Soap Dispensers can use liquid dish soap, liquid hand soap, alcohol-based hand-sanitizer, and even typical hand lotions. Foaming soap will pump from the soap dispenser but it will not foam.
There are very clear benefits of why soap dispensers are really necessary in bathrooms. Due to the lack of contact with wet and frequently used soap bathroom soap dispenser helps in reducing bacteria and germs.
We highly recommend using soap when pressure washing for more effective cleaning, faster cleaning time, and more significant results. In addition, lower pressure can be used to prevent damaging your home or equipment.

How do I get the soap to work on a power washer

On my karcher pressure washer, how do i get the soap to come out of the spray nozzle?
Two nozzels came with your washer one has a cone shaped head, the other one is blunt, attach the blunt one to the trigger. You will notice on the barrel of the nozzel it says “mix” turn the indicator line to “mix” and it should work. This is a very low pressure setting and is used to “apply” the soap only. You cannot despense soap in the hight pressure mode.
My Honda 2600 psi power washer will not pull to start. It was running great then I allowed the neighbor to borrow it. He ran the washer till it was out of gas and proceeded to refuel and at this point it would no longer start. The pull cord is out about 4-6 inches out and I am concerned about taking the casing off myself.
Fearing that it may throw more off on the unit. If i take the casing off are there any spring loaded parts that will dismount?
What should I do? Spark Plug? Turn wrenches?
Please let me know
You should be fine to take the recoil off, there shouldn’t be anything that shoots out at you. You might want to check the oil level on the engine, many of the Honda engines won’t start unless there is enough oil in them. If your oil level is fine, check to make sure that your motor is getting spark.
I have used the McCulloch (FH180A) three times over the course of two years. On my fourth use the pressure washer just surged on and off and I would get a tiny spray from the gun each time it surged. In other words it would do nothing. Please help… very frustrated. Thanks
Sounds like the problem could be low input water flow or pressure. There could be crud on the intake where you hook up the garden hose, there could be some other sort of blockage. Try hooking it up to the hose and pull the trigger (with the power switched off) and wait to see if water comes out the tip. Also look at the tip(s) themselves. sometimes a piece of crud gets into the hose and then clogs the tip.

How do i prime the pump on the soaper or chemical dispenser on my troy built 2550 psi pressure washer?
There is no need to prime. But you do need to use the black spray nozzle to get soap to siphon out.
if that doesn’t solve the problem let me know
Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose. There is a little metal finger thing that you can tell pushes up into place when the water pressure is high. It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut. It was just free floating in there. I’m thinking it may go over the finger mechanism. I just put it back on top of the finger, like a halo and put the screw in piece back in. Anyway, if you know, let me know how all that goes together.
I fixed mine works good too, watch my video step by step i put it on youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXSLOBL0Mg
