Shake well before using. Pour 1‐2 ounces of this product into vacuum hoses or you may pour it directly into the solution recovery tank prior to foaming or even after foaming begins. May also be used in a truck‐mounted system. It’s always easier to prevent foam before you start than it is to remove it after it has become a problem. It is always better to use a little beforehand, if in doubt as to whether this product is needed.
If this product is exposed to extreme temperature changes it may separate in the container, so for best results please shake well before using. If separation does occur, shaking well will place product back into solution with no damage to active ingredients. This product works well in portable self‐contained or truck mounted equipment. Once applied to vacuum hose or pickup tank it may take a few minutes for the foam level to drop.
When using many cleaning products, such as detergents, a considerable amount of foam is created. This causes recovery tanks to fill up rapidly and often results in overflowing suds. This overflow often carries soiled water with it, thus soiling and soaking anything around the recovery tank.
