I currently have a truckmount that does not have a chemical injection system and I’m looking to add one any recommendations or tips would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Venturi would be the easiest setup. Problem is manufacturers have flows at GPh and venturi is flow based. What truckmount do you have?

The old hydramaster system was the most even with the electric float and solenoid that injected as it filled. The problem was the float failing way before the rated duty cycles. Honestly, a 12v old school mercury rule switch used upside down beat the brakes off their floats. This was back when you could actually call Super Dennis and order parts from them directly, they don't do that anymore.

Why if you have a tank?
Without question dosing the tank is simpler and ultimately uses less chemicals on the rinse portion. The pump sees lubrication from start to finish and everything in the water system if on the soft water side to begin with has a better lifespan and reduced operating cost. Don't listen to us old bastards though, just say "ok boomer ".

what Jim said just pour it into your water tank...
also Flex Ice is a acid rinse and not supposed to hurt pump it actually says it will help your pump.

however if you want to get an injection you have to get a
PULSE PUMP which is DOWNSTREAM injection(after the pump)
the others dont work well....

also make them for general pumps.....

took my Cat pump dealer and I weeks to figure out how to hook it up...

HERES A DIAGRAM of the hook up....if your interested....
