GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INJECTOR
(or anything that mixes chemicals)
SAVES MONEY AND TIME
TESTING YOUR INJECTOR
ON YOUR MACHINE
1 gal jug ( marked at each cup totaling 16)
5 gal bucket ( marked at each gal)
Put everything together how you use it to ds.......
Fill the jug with 16 cups water.
Put the chemical line in the jug.
Pull the trigger for 60 seconds
Measure how many cups left after 60 seconds. ......
Take the chemical line out of the jug. .....
Pull the trigger into the 5 gal bucket for 60 seconds. ...... measure how much you produce in 60 sec.
Then we can do the math. ....
If you pulled 8 cups in 60 seconds
Produced 4 gallons in 60 seconds. ..
It would take 2 mins to pull 1 gal.
2 mins = 1 gal chemical pulled
2 mins = 8 gal water produced
Results = 8/1 injector
Some common used Ratios but the list is Growing!
10/1 (pre-spray flat work heavy oil)
15/1 ( gutters)
16/1 (awning )
20/1 (pre-spray flat work med oil)
40/1 (commercial flatwork maintenance)
50/1 (carpet) (auto detail)
64/1 (heavy soiled window cleaning)
100/1 ÷ (injector ratio ) = downstream mix Flatwork
128/1 (Window cleaning) (carpet)
133/1 × (injector ratio) house washes
500/1 (roof mixtures)
All have been used the most frequently and reported for different situations, these are all Contractor reported ratios, so try different ones always. When testing always test a small area for color fastness and needed dilutions
Starting with a common 5 to 1 Mixture (1 gal Dragon Juice in 4 Gallons of water)
House Wash Ratios
Total House Washes from 1 gallon of Super Concentrated Dragon Juice NV =26 to 40
2 CUPS of 5/1 per 5 Gal mix of your choice of Sodium hypochlorite and Water Ratio
40 total Mixes at 2 cups (Basic Level of contaminants) per 5 gallon house wash mix = cost $1.35 per mix of Dragon Juice NV
26 total Mixes at 3 cups (Heavy Level of contaminants) per 5 gallon house wash mix = cost $2.11 per mix of Dragon Juice NV
at 3 cups contractors have noticed a better cleaning of the tiger stripes off of gutters and Mud dauber and wasp nest removal becoming more easy.
Gutter Cleaning Ratios
from 10/1 to 20/1 ratios have worked great
Always Apply to a dry gutter for best results
From Super Concentrated Dragon Juice NV 15/1
1 part Dragon Juice NV to 14 parts Water for direct spray or brush on application
Example 8.53 oz to 1 gallon (128 oz)
256 ml to 3840 ml
From a 5 to 1 Mixture of Dragon Juice NV 15/1
1 part Dragon Juice NV to 2 Part Water
if you find any ratios or mixtures that work for you please feel free to share
Thank you everyone for your input on Dragon Juice.
Basic rules to remember are that Dragon Juice always needs Water to work its best!
Please don't waste your chemical by using it straight in super concentrated form.
Common terms i use and what i mean when i say them:
Ratio or dilution phrases....
5/1 or 5 to 1 or 5 in 1 = total parts and Dragon Juice Parts
all of these above when i am referring to them would be 4 parts water / 1 part Dragon Juice.
