SOURCE: my pressure washer will not pump the soap, when

Most pressure washers introduce soap into stream of water by the siphon method. In order for the system to siphon the pressure tip must be changed to one with large opening. Once the large tip is install, the fast moving low pressure water thru the hose and wand will draw-in soap. With the pressure tip installed soap will not be drawn-in. To spray soap and water under pressure use a large container (larger the better like clean 30 gallon trashcan) and fill with clean water and measure of liquid detergent. Use short water hose from with-in container and connect to pressure washer as normal. Keep checking water level so that washer will not run dry. Most pressue washers will **** water in quickly from container, however you can pre-fill the water hose with water to speed things up. Trailer mounted pressure washers use a very large container for water. You can estimate how log the pressure washer will take to use the water by checking the gallons per minute rating of your machine. Good luck

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

How do I get the soap started


with most pressure washers, the soap is mixed before the pump. in order for this to work correctly you must use the black spray tip. It is much larger then the others and delivers the soap at a much lower pressure. put the soap tube in the soap solution and it will be drawn up and out the tip.

It will not dispense the soap.


You need to adjust the nozzle on the end of the lance so the machine will draw chemical at low pressure.

Cannot get it to uptake the bleach for spraying Dewalt pressure washer 3100 psi


On most pressure washers you wont be able to draw soap/bleach into pump unless you are spraying on low pressure.There is a valve on the inside of inlet hose fitting that closes when high back pressure is sensed.Would it draw bleach into hose when wand tip is removed?

Comet 2.5 Gpm pressure washer pump wont **** soap anyone know what you have to do to make it start sucking soap


I have found many comet pumps to be plumbed wrong from the factory. Look on the side of the soap injector and look for the flow arrow, make sure its in the right direction. If it has worked in the past,then take it apart and replace the spring, check ball and seat.

Do you have it on low pressure. This is usually done with the nozzle end depending on the model, They only apply soap at low pressure

Ryobi 3000 psi pressure washer detergent injector


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
