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.

Power Washer Necessity

Whoever desires to purchases a new Power Washer and expects a very long life, take this warning with you. The power washer, no matter the brand name, the pump must be lubricated after every use. Let me tell you that if you do not lubricate the water pump you will be lucky it last through the second year. Probably long enough for the warrenty to expire. The Briggs and Stratton Pump Saver I purchased from a Sears Store is your ******** as the price is right and the lubricant works very well. Hook a can up to your washer and push the spray lid long enough for the lubricant to exit the water exit of your power washer and it will last you a very long time.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Have not used item yet

I purchased this item to help protect a pressure washer that I picked up for free and worked on the pump. It cost a little money to fix the pump so I figured this was cheap insurance to protect it in the future.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A Must For Pressure Washers

Based on all reviews of pressure washers under $500, this is a must for preserving the water pump on a pressure washer. Most water pumps rust out way before the motor because of water left in the pressure washer after use. (lets think about this a second....water sitting in bare metal (water pump) equals RUST). It is recommended to use if the pressure washer sits more than 30 days, but I'd recommend after every use (unless you're using the pressure washer in consecutive days). This was easy to hook up with the threaded hose to the input of the pressure washer and just a quick push of the button shoots the pump saver into the water pump. Much easier than the bottled pump savers that you have to squeeze into the pressure washer). In fact, it took less time to inject the saver into the pump than it did to connect the threaded hose to the pump. If you're not using this, expect to buy a new pump, ring kit, or even a new pressure washer in the next year. Wouldn't live without this.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Pump lubricant and winter preservative

I purchased this product to extend the life of my pressure washer for summers to come. I believe that this product will be the best product to accomplish my goal of protecting my power washer through the next several winters so that I can continue to use it for several years.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
