A Must Have
I bought a can of Pump Saver in 2002 when I bought a new pressure washer. Every fall I spray this into the water inlet, which forces the water out of the pump and leaves an oily preservative. Six years later my pressure washer is like new, and the can of Pump Saver is still going strong. Hopefully I'll get another season or two out of it. Use it anytime you plan to go 30 days or more without using your pressure washer, especially if you're facing freezing temps.

Great Value

This pressure washer pump saver is a great value! It's only a couple dollars more than the hardware stores but twice the size. I believe a little preventative maintenance goes a long way. I use this in the spring and fall and have had my pressure washer for 3 years and I haven't had any problems.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Pumpsaver

The pumpsaver is very easy to use. Be sure to stay out of the way of the oulet or you will be squirted too.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

PW lubricant

With hard water I figured it was cheap insurance. Doesn't take much to lubricate pump, be ready for pressurized excess with a towel. Definitly a type of luricant/oil judging by excess solution. If can stays pressurized it may be enough for many uses.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Everyone with a pressure washer should have this

If this helps to protect the pump in storage, it's on my workbench shelf. So far this product has kept my pressure washer ready to go each season I use it. No issues with the pump acting up or not getting pressure to "come up". Just a nice insurance policy IMO.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

easy and fast

I was thrilled the sales person asked if I had a power washer.  He suggested I buy this product, because with out it, stored in the garage. the winter weather would ruin the motor.  It was very easy to use.  I'm thrilled my $400 power washer is protected.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Pressure Washer Pump Saver - Lubricates and Protects

Craftsman Pressure Washer Pump Saver is easy to use and protects the pump during periods when the Pressure Washer is not in use. It doesn't get much easier than this. Simply attach the hose that is on the can to the water INLET on the pressure washer. Depress the button on top of the can to add the pump saver. Hold the button until the Pump Saver/Lubricant comes out of the water OUTLET. Release the button...you're done! It only takes seconds to protect your Craftsman Pressure Washer. Since it only takes a little to complete the job, the can of Craftsman Pump Saver will last a long time. Be sure to read the manufacturers instructions for proper preparation and storage of your pressure washer during periods when the pressure is not in use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A No-Brainer

One can lasts several years. I leave the hose and wand attached to lubricate all the o-rings in those fittings too. My pressure washers are 8-10 years old and good as new, due to Craftsman Pump Saver.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Product worked per the instructions. Easy to use.

Worked at expected. Will know more next spring to see how well it protected the powerwasher pump over a MI winter. This can should last quite a few years which it should for almost $10.

4 stars solely on ease of use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Craftsman Pump Saver is easy to use.

I am not sure about the manufacturer claims that it extends the life of your pump, but it makes sense to me to at least use it and try. It only takes a couple of seconds to do and it seems like it would help extend the life of a pressure washer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A Must Have

If you invested in a power washer, and live in a climate where it must be stored for any length of time, this product is a MUST HAVE. It does just what's described. This is going to be my third storage season on my first can, and each spring, my pump is in like new condition. If you ever price a replacement pump, the $8.99 is well worth the investment. Plus it looks like I might get 4 or 5 seasons out of a single can

I would recommend this product to a friend.
