Not sure this is the correct place for this, but
What is the mix ratio for Goutmaster?
If you have a can it includes the ratios on the side, pump up sprayer, Hydroforce etc. I wish I had a bottle near me I’d snap a pic for you but I’m out of state.

Thats why I'm asking, I do not have any and would like to know before I buy any.

Polished stone 1oz per gal
Normal T&G 2oz
Heavy T&G 3-4oz

Spray and go on most floors.
Spray and 10 - 15 minute dwell for heavy soil.
Agitate grout lines for excessive build up, reapply GM prior to rinsing.
What mix would you go for on a polished porcelain floor?

Reapplying GM prior to rinsing does that almost ensure no haze left behind? Or more so to make sure you got enough on there for dirty jobs?

Both.
If you have to prescrub because the grout is full of soils then reapply the GM to ensure it soaks in and goes to work.
I've seen it where after scrubbing you have dry spots because all the chem was absorbed by the crud

This is very rare BTW.

My standard procedure is spray groutlines only first, then right before rinsing quickly mist the whole tile with GM.

If the chem dries it won't rinse off and only shows up when the floor dries.

I also use walk off towels to prevent GM shoe prints.

BTW this is why I go to the farthest point and work my way out. I've worked my way in before and ended up with footprints on the clean floor.

Thanks for your help. Yes high gloss porcelain, I have one to clean today.
It’s good to know different ratios you use for different tile.

Typical half way through the floor the machine died on me. I love the machine and hate it all at the same time

The boxxer 421 I’ve put a thread in the repair man section. Just seems to have problems after problems
Hopefully someone can help you out, I personally have no knowledge or experience on Boxxers.
