    I have some kudzu that needs spraying a was wondering if roundup would be OK to run through the PW'er. Would it be to corrosive for the pump?

    downstream it, but the dilution ratio will probably be too high and make the final product weak.

    NJWashingGuy thanks,

    In the manual it says " for every 7 gallons of water pumped 1 gallon of cleaning solution will be used."

    The Roundup mix is 6oz. per gallon, but wanted to know if it would harm the pump. The manual also says DO NOT USE BLEACH and chemical damage would void the warranty, but know many use it anyways.
