Most detergent injectors work by the venturi system. That is that the detergent is drawn into the stream by the forward flow of the water thru a very narrow port after the water passes thru the pump. This system works best when the pressure at the tip of the wand is low. Trying using a very large tip to draw in and apply the detergent, then remove injector and rinse with high pressure. Not good for the pump but to apply soap reliably under high pressure the soap needs to be injected through the intake of the pump. enjoy

Just check the machine for soap with the high pressure hose disconnected first, if soap comes through then the problem is with the hose gun or lance nozzles.
if no soap still when disconnecting the hose, then the ball bearing will be stuck in the house of the soap valve , take the soap pipe off and push the ball bearing with a paper clip or thin object.

Hi. I'm scratch building a pressure washer using a Comet BXD2831G pump. If I don't plan on using any type of detergent, is it OK (or manditory) to plug the detergent intake to keep it from sucking...


No need to plug the injector because under pressure (internal force/pressure) keeps valve shut. It only opens when large nozzle (black tip) is used lowering internal pressure causing siphon effect. Some chemical injectors have a thumbwheel to shut off flow completely. Your plug idea will keep the opening clean for later use. You can adjust pressure by ear. Your pump will take a 6.5 hp engine to develop max pressure of 2700 psi, however, to extend the life of the pump and engine, adjust pressure to about 75 % of capacity or about 2000 psi. To develop 6.5 hp your engine must turn at about 3600 rpm which is over the max rpm of the pump 3400rpm. The rpm of the engine is usually set by using the appropriate governor spring. Easy task, by using the model number and type of the engine, you can determine the proper governor spring and placement on the throttle arm, maybe about 3000 rpm would be sufficient. Now with engine rpm set, turn pressure adjustment up until engine sounds to you like at full labor, then adjust down to a workable pressure for majority of work and turn up for stubborn debris. Good luck with your project.

I recently purchased a northstar 4000 psi pressure washer. I had the same series pressure washer for the past 6 years and used a downstream chemical unloader quick connect to pull chemical. I attached it...


The injector might be worn out or have something inside of the valve causing it not to ****. If you are using a new high pressure hose or a longer hose this may also have an effect over the injector not working.

The type of oil recommended for that engine is SAE 10W-30 and the capacity is 0.61 quarts. This and more can be referenced at the website at the end of this solution. I was able to find the owners manual of your particular engine.
