    My Nilfisk pressure washer came with a bottle attachment, I think for car washing. Probably 3-400cc.
    I have 5L of patio cleaner which says it should be diluted 4:1 but also recommends using a pressure washer.

    The pressure washer obviously dilutes whatever is in the spray bottle considerably anyway so should I be pre diluting or not?

    MisterBoy, good evening.

    So far I have had two P/Washers, one had a "bottle" on the wand, the other has a reservoir, in both cases i dod not dilute anything prior to use.

    Caution both systems tend to gobble the the cleaner or whatever, so When I use it in this type of mode, i try to ensure it is a one hit wonder with minimal double coating.

    Ken.

    The dilution ratio often means that you can apply it with a garden sprayer or whatever - followed by a pressure wash off.
    If the solution is fed through the washer, it will dilute aplenty.
    I hope you find the solution works well - I've yet to find that!
    John :)
