Q: Will Karcher 2400psi 2.5 gm power this?
by James Hill from Georgia on May 25, 2016

A: James,

Yes, this will fit at the end of the wand where the colored spray tips attach. This is one of the best long range soap nozzles we have. Any additional questions, don't hesitate to ask.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: I have a Briggs & Stratton Model 020588 pressure washer, Will this fit my PW ? Want to soap & rinse my Ram with it. Will it work ?
by Mark from New York on May 25, 2015

A: It will work with Gas machines below 6.5 HP with a quick connect on the lance assembly.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: Will this work on my gas powered Karcher power washer? The PSI is 2650 and GM 2.6
by Rich on March 24, 2012

A: Yes, this GP high pressure soap shooter nozzle would definitely work with your pressure washer. This is also the correct size for your machine.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: Will this work on consumer electric washers (AR 383)?
by Tyler on March 18, 2012

A: No, this high pressure soap nozzle will not work on the AR383 or any consumer grade electric model that comes with plastic bayonet style fittings. Only AR accessories will work on AR pressure washers due to their very unique connection fittings that they use.

With the AR383, there is no attachment or way to spray detergent at high pressure.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: Does this nozzle take the place of normal nozzle at the end of lance? Will I need to use normal nozzle for pressure washing?
by Bob K from Pennsylvania on September 28, 2011

A: In a sense, yes this nozzle will replace a standard spray tip. Meaning, you can spray detergent thru this nozzle and then close off the detergent flow thru the adjustment knob and spray just high pressure water. This nozzle produces a cone shaped spray pattern unlike the normal fan spray pattern that a standard spray tip would.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: Do you have any videos or pdf files explaining how this (General Pump High Pressure Soap Shooter Nozzle with Rinse Capability (#4.0) hooks up to your pressure washer?
by Glenn Taylor from South Carolina on May 26, 2011

A: Honestly, you really don't need a video. This is going to hook into the end of your lance the same way one of your other nozzles would. You then take the other end of the siphon tube and put it into a bucket of detergent and water and the siphon would pull it from the bucket and go out the pressure washer and that is it. If you have more questions, you can call and talk to us about it, but it is as simple as that.

Thanks,

Q: Can you use bleach when using High Pressure Soap Shooter since chemicals does not run thru pump
by KC from North Carolina on April 27, 2011

A: Yes, you could definitely use bleach thru this GP high pressure soap shooter nozzle. You are correct, the chemical will absolutely not affect your pump, hose, or gun if you were to use bleach with this type of injector.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: Bill, I just bought a used Coleman Powermate 2750 that works really great. I would like to know how to use the chemicla pick-up system. The pick-up tube came with it and looks like it's never been used. I have a two story house with mildew on the North and West sides and need to apply chlorine mixture. Please tell me just how to use the system. Thank you very much in advance.
by Tony Holcombe from Florida on April 02, 2011

A: With a siphon hose chemical injection system, you can only apply the detergent at low pressure. To pull the detergent out of a container, you have to attach the black "detergent" spray tip to your wand. You will not be able to pull detergent using any other high pressure spray tip. If you happen to have an adjustable spray wand, you have to rotate it to your low pressure setting.

If you need to reach 2nd story levels with detergent or you wish to apply detergents at high pressure, you could always purchase a high pressure soap shooter nozzle. I posted a link below to the item:

Q: I'm prepping my house for sale. Will the Briggs & Stratton Model 20418 be enough to clean the outside of a two story house?
by William Sumner from North Carolina on March 27, 2011

A: Yes, this model pressure washer definitely has enough pressure to accomplish what you are trying to do. The recommended size pressure washer for your application is between 2600-3000 psi. Remember, you can only spray detergent at low pressure so you might have to use a ladder to reach the higher levels with detergent.

You can also purchase a high pressure soap shooter nozzle that allows you to increase the distance of your spray and allows you to spray detergent at high pressure. I posted a link to the soap shooter nozzle below:

With the 30 of hose you can drop this into any cleaning solution that you want to spray as it will not be going through your pump.

Quick on and off valve allows you to switch from soap to rinse quickly and easily.

This product is great to go at the end of telescoping wands that arent able to apply detergents or if you just want the flexibility to have a wider range of movement while still being able to spray detergents up to 3 stories!

Works Good
Ran it with a 3200 PSI washer, used it for spraying bleach.

Best to use it from ground level, I shot it up 25 feet. Trick is to get it primed at a low level, then don't shut the spray wand off, then shoot it high. If you stop spraying it will lose prime then you start over.

I liked the stainless construction and the adjustability. Way better than any other way of applying bleach!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Durable, Light Weight

It's Okay
Works OK when you're on the ground, when you get up on the ladder it doesn't work. You could hold it down until it gets in the chamber and then pointed up but you only have a few seconds of chemical injection before it drains back down.

Great idea but doesn't work as well as I'd hoped.

Jim,
The water from your pressure washer rushing by causes a siphon, which allows the detergent to be drawn up the tube and added to the water stream- but gravity and air pressure both play a role in establishing and maintaining the siphon.

Here's a brief video explaining How A Siphon Works that may help you get the best use from your Soap Shooter.

Since you're going up a ladder and fighting gravity, you may want to consider a Foamer that uses a bottle to hold the detergent at the level of your spray tip.

Willam,
These units work on a Siphon principle, and getting the siphon started can sometimes be tricky.

Thinner liquids will always work better, but you may be able to work with a thicker liquid by starting the siphon with the container of detergent lifted higher than the spray nozzle. Gravity will help move the liquid through the hose. Once the siphon is established you should be able to lift the nozzle and start spraying normally.

Good Product For The Job
This product worked just fine. I read some of the reviews and decided to shorten the pickup tube to ten feet. It worked perfectly.

To use on a ladder I simply placed the gallon container of cleaner in a small bucket with a handle and hooked the handle on a rung of the ladder to keep tube free to move about. Ten feet of tubing was plenty to move the sprayer head around wherever I needed to. Just secure the tube to the bucket with a clothes pin.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Price

Disappointed
My plan was to inject pool chlorine, jomax & a small amount of Gain detergent through the injector to clean the mildew off my roof. I called customer service to get the recommended size. I was surprised at the high cost of both a simple nozzle plus shipping. When I sprayed the roof from a ladder with the bucket the same height as I was on a second ladder, there was absolutely nu change in the mildew and I drained the entire 3 gallons of mixture.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, did nothing for me
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert

Peter,
The Soap Shooter's performance will depend on how thick the solution is. You will get the best results from a thin solution (more watery) than a thicker solution.

For safety reasons we don't advocate home-made cleaning solutions. I hope you were careful to control the overspray and not breathe it. You may want to try a product made to kill roof mold like Wet & Forget- but please be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Better Than What I Had
Using a 3000 psi pump I had trouble getting the solution to siphon up through the hose when the nozzle was 5 feet or higher above the bucket of solution.

Cons: Expensive, Lower psi units may have issues

Keith,
Please make sure the detergent solution is thin enough so the siphon action can lift it. You may also find raising the bucket of solution will let you increase the height you can wash at at. Here's a link for How A Siphon Works.

Works With Modification
Used with Husky 2600 psi, 2.6 gpm, gasoline-powered unit, but modified as follows: Shortened tubing to 6-feet and elevated chemical bucket so it was at the same level as the nozzle (hung it from top of 8-foot step ladder). Effectively cleaned mildew from north end of my 2-story house.

Reached two stories easily however, gable end above second story ceiling level received only a large misting spray since stream fanned out completely at that level. It still cleaned and rinsed that area... more

Junk - Do Not Buy
I purchased this product to be able to spray bleach without running it through my pressure washer. Living in coastal North Carolina, bleach really is product that works with cleaning houses. This product worked fine when I sprayed at ground level, but as soon as I tried to spray any peaks or gable ends of a house, the bleach would run right back down the tube. I even tried pointing my wand at the ground to get it started then going back up.

I called to complain and they said it must be... more
Cons: Low Quality, Bad Instructions, Unreliable

Mike,
Gravity and air pressure both play a role in establishing and maintaining a Siphon, which is how this accessory works.

The water rushing by picks up the chemical solution and adds it to the water stream. Depending on how thick the solution is, it can be helpful to lower the wand and raise the solution container (as shown in the Wiki siphon link) to establish the siphon action. Once the siphon has been established (no air in the feed tube) it should be able to maintain itself when the wand is lifted in the air.

A thin solution (like water) will work better than thick (like dish detergent) one.

This accessory has a size 4 orifice, which is appropriate for 3800 PSI pressure washers that run around 4 GPM. Best performance in a nozzle comes from the balance of PSI (how hard the water is being pushed), GPM (how much water is being pushed) and orifice (size of the hole the water is pushed through). If you look at this page for a #4 Orifice Turbo Nozzle you'll see a chart that shows that relationship.

You may want to give the folks at General Pump a call at (888) 474-5487 to see if a larger or smaller orifice would help you get the results you're looking for based on the GPM of your unit. Please be careful when spraying bleach- the overspray can be harmful to plants and paint.

Won't Draw The Bleach
I purchased this device to power wash my house. I can't get it to draw the bleach from the bottle with out basically siphoning to get it primed. There were no directions with it. I'm frustrated.
Cons: Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Gerald,
We're sorry you're having problems with the Soap Shooter. Your pressure washer should have a GPM (gallons per minute) rating of around 2.5 to 3 gallons per minute to create a suction strong enough to pull liquid up the hose on its own.

The other thing to check is that the liquid you're trying to spray is the consistency of water- if it's a thickened bleach formula (they do that to prevent splashing) you may have to dilute it.

Please be careful of the overspray and runoff. If there's a breeze you could wind up with bleach in your eyes, on your car or lawn furniture. Give your landscaping a good drink of clean water before you start; it will be less likely to soak up the bleach runoff. If the overspray will hit leaves, you may need to cover your plants temporarily.

If you feel the sprayer isn't working properly, please give the folks at General Pump a call, toll free, at (888) 474-5487.
