Since you did not mention the pump brand or type. I will just assume it to be a pressure washer, complete
with gun. The pump comes two suction hoses. One for the water supply and one for the soap bottle or pail There is pressure adjuster right at the pump near where the hose is connected. You can adjust to higher pressure by turning it clockwise. You can adjust the nozzle spray pattern by turning it. However, if your pump comes with only one set of suction hose. Then, it is designed to get the water
supply from the faucet with hose bib. The only one
set of hose is for the soap bottle or pail. It will **** the soap once the nozzle spray is opened.
hose,

The low pressure soap dispenser doesn't work. I have removed the pump manifold and it is full of rust. I do I remove the injector nipple from the pump manifold to clean it?


To properly fix this you will need to disassemble the hose and fittings, Clean them throughly and replace the hose. Also I suggest that the fatory filter be replaced or a small screen is placed over the line again.
Many of these filters are renoved because they don't fit into soap bottles.

HI. My Comet FWS 4030 works just great and i am very pleased. what i DON'T know is how to draw up soap to mix with the water. there is a big red knob, and another brass adjustment but i have no manual...


The red knob is to regulate the pressure. The soap siphon should be hooked up to the pump at the high pressure outlet and the pressure hose hooks up to it. You do just have to drop the tube into your soap solution but I recommend you dilute the soap down as the siphon usually sucks the solution up fairly fast. The trick to making it work is to use the low pressure, soap tip on your wand. They are black and help fan the water/soap out but give no resistance to the water coming out. If you are using a high pressure tip, usually red, yellow, white or green, there will be too much back pressure in the hose and siphon attachment for it to **** up any solution.

My washer does not spray the cleaner solution as high as it did originally. The high pressure spray is fine.


If your pressure washer works like ours, it has a T connection.
A plastic hose comes off the T and goes into the bucket of cleaner
Pressure from the hose creates suction across the T and this draws cleaner into pressure hose
The plastic hose from cleaner connects to a small brass ball valve on the T
The ball valve clogs up or changes over time and cleaner will not draw up into the pressure hose.
We would replace the valve stem
I don't know if they sell the little replacement parts like they used to

Finally we had so much trouble.
We started applying our chemical with a pump-up sprayer.
For us, it was cheaper, and the work went faster.
We put one guy on the pump up sprayer
And then another guy came behind him on the washer.

Solutions won't feed from bottles on machine? I use the switch on this machine to use a deck cleaning solution and the bottles won't feed the solution into the water.


I have a SIMONIZ S2000 electric. I bought the unit about 8 weeks ago used it once. On the second use yesterday the unit didn't work as well, the pressure seemed only a bit better than hose pressure and soap did not dispense at any pressure. SO.... after much thought I turned the hose/tap pressure down so that I only got about 2-3 GPM instead of the typical 5-6GPM normally coming out of my hose....... it worked! Soap dispenses and spay is way better! It seems that if if the inlet hose pressure is high the pump doesn't work as well... go figure.

De Walt pressure cleaner not drawing chemicals


pull the hose off at the end going into the water pump there is a screen inside of that fitting remove it and clean reinstall and try it again, sometimes the pressure washer has to be on low pressure in order to pull soap out of the bottle.

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
