    Did anyone take a picture or maybe Scott will be kind enough to elaborate again? Scott W posted a great way to calculate how much sauce to put into the hydroforce. I had a screenshot of it, but when I got a new phone I lost it. It was something like 8 + 1 plus plus how many quarts your hydroforce is = many ounces you need to put in. I'd really like to have it bc I'm thinking about giving the hydroforce a try again.

    The shorter explanation. A reasonably full Hydro-Force sprayer will put out 10 gallons of whatever when using the standard 1:8 metering tip.

    Put in enough of whatever you are mixing to make 10 gallons.

    If the directions say 2 ounces per gallon, use 20 ounces in the sprayer jug.

    Most people don't fill the spray jug to the very top. It tends to splash out. So, 10 gallons is a nice round number.

    That's about right unless you fill it to the brim. I favor the 7 qt. containers so I have to figure what I need for that. I generally use less than what the label calls for most of the time. I'm at around 2 to 3 oz. per gallon with my liquid Grand Slam. I think the 5 qt. containers have to be pretty near full to get the whole 5 quarts to get 11.25 gallons with the 1:8 sprayer. I'm getting about 15 or so gallons in my 7 qt. sprayer per fill up.

    just my opinion here, but manufacturers also don't take into consideration if you use a CRB. If you use their mixing proportions (potions) then you will be on the strong side if you use a CRB

    Each cleaner cleans differently. One has more or less agitation than the next. Water in one place is hard but another uses soft water, etc. Some jobs are rat nasty and others get to clean already clean carpet.

    The instructions give a range that covers most situations. But it is really a starting point. Adjust as required.

    If manufacturers tried to put exact dilution for every circumstance, there would not be enough space on the label even if it was a 55 gallon drum.

    So what psi should we be running our hydroforce at?
    I tend to use a 3 gal. pump sprayer on furnished house's and a hydroforce on empty house.
    When I use my hydroforce I'm not used the the speed of the amount of product I'm applying and I think I'm going threw is to fast.
    I would set it 200-300 psi and I have tried 100psi to slow down to a pump sprayer speed

    The Hydro-Force is calibrated to be pretty accurate anywhere between 250 PSI and 500 PSI. If you use lower PSI the chemical tends to be less diluted. You may want to spray a measured amount into a bucket to see exactly how the dilution is working at the PSI you use.

    A better idea may be to simply move faster if the sprayer is putting out more than you expect. Save some time.
