  • Cheap Upstreaming Chemical Injection!!!

    Has anybody out there tried this device for their PW? Looks like a great, cheap way of high pressure detergent application except they highly recommend you use their cleaning pouches with it. Later!

    Interesting that the unit itself can only be purchased online yet the pouches are stocked at the B&M stores. Also the only detergent pouches I was able to find at the HD website were only for mold and mildew removal. Sorta limits what you can use this thing for.

      Well I actually saw this device at my local HD store yesterday and did the search to find out more. The way it's designed looks like you could use any type of detergent but of course something like bleach would cause a bit more wear and tear being sent through the pump.

      I don't own a Ridgid PW, but do have a pretty strong homeowner machine, being 3400psi and 3gpm. When I first bought it I was disappointed by the throw of the detergent nozzle. It utilizes a foaming nozzle that has a screen built in and it does a great job of foaming the detergent so it clings on much longer, but has no distance to it. I bought one of these and that took care of foaming at any height up to maybe 18-20 feet. It does work great. Later!

        There is likely good reason for "highly recommending" their own cleaning pouches. Putting a high foaming detergent in before the pump would have a good chance of pump cavitation and at the very least possibly voiding the warranty.
        I'm pretty sure I won't be putting one on mine.
