    Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone has used oxy-clean or any of those oxygen cleaning powders for p-washing.They say on the back how to mix for deck cleaning & mildew removal. I have been using bleach for everything the only thing I have seen with bleach is that when you use it on sealed surfaces it eats threw the sealer and strips it off. This is why I was wondering about Oxy-clean since it is supposed to be so safe for cleaning I was wanting to know if it will clean the mildew and dirt but not hurt sealers on wood. I was also wondering if the cheap bleach is just as good as clorox. I just tried the Armoral EZ-Deckwash from Wal-mart $2.79 a gallon and it worked great on this very very bad mildewed new home that was not sealed. Tried bleach too but the Armoral worked alot better.G-Man did you have any luck with your $49.95 driveway special?

    Anybody ever use TSP? It's supposed to be some heavy duty stuff. I think it's mainly used for drive-thrus and dumpster pads. Just guessing.

    go to your local swimming pool supplier, they should carry 10-12%. The stuff you get at the grocery store or wherever else is normally only 4-6%.

    10-12% liquid sodium hypochlorite

    I would have a hard time ordering liquid chlorine since it loses is potency fairly quick.

    Simple enough answer.......... No .....


    No problems whatsoever........ I just always ran clean chemical free water through the pump and wand for a minute letting the unit flush itself out....

    I always wash anything like the frame of the unit down to get any residue off because chlorine can be pretty corrosive to regular tin and metal so i just wash everything down....

    If you carry Jugs or whatever containers of chlorine in the truck and it spills wash it out at the end of the day.....

    Ive seen 2 yr old trucks all corroded that people hauled chlorine around in and were to lazy to wash.... Trucks are expensive compared to a wand or anything on the pressure washer so if i was going to worry about anything getting premature damage it would be the vehicle hauling the chemicals not the cheap pressure washer.....

    Pressure wash the truck down daily after work with th PW and cold chemical free water or a little soap and i find the trucks last just fine ,plus your flushing the pump an extra few minuites after the innitial flushing before washing the vehicle....

    I believe the ceramic parts used as pistons inside the typical PW pump are immume to chemical corrosion anyway because ceramic is naturally pre corroded to begin with.... Thats why they use ceramic , so that along with the use of stainless steel make corrosion a small factor in the life of a Pressure washer

    JMO anyway....
