How to Attach the Sanitizer Pro to a Standard Garden Hose

Step 1:  Pull down on the neck of Hose-End Female Quick Connector (Part L).

Step 2:  With the neck down, pull the Handle away from the Hose-End Female Quick Connector (Part L).

Step 3:  Thread the Hose-End Female Quick Connector (Part L) onto a standard garden hose.

Step 4:  Pull back the neck of the Hose-End Female Quick Connector (Part L).

Step 5:  With the neck back, press the Male Nipple (Part M) into the Hose-End Female Quick Connector (Part L).

How to Attach the Sanitizer Pro Handle to the Wysiwash Hydro Body

Step 1:  Take the Pro Handle and pull back the Nozzle-End Female Quick Connector (Part G). 

Step 2:  With Part G pulled back, press the Hydro Body Connector (Part I)

Step 3:  Release the Nozzle-End Female Quick Connector (Part G). The Pro Handle and Sanitizer Pro should lock together.

Step 4:  Ensure the connection is secure by gently pulling the Hydro Body and the Pro Handle away from one another.

Step 1: Turn your hose on (water will not be released until you press the trigger of the Sanitizer Pro).

Step 2: Select the desired pressure by turning the Pressure Lever (Part H). You can also adjust the pressure while spraying.

Off: Turned down.

Medium Pressure: Turn half-way

Full Pressure: Pointing Upwards.

Step 3: Press the trigger (Part K) to start sanitizing. The trigger will lock automatically.

To adjust the spray from fan to jet, use the adjustable nozzle (Part H).

Step 4: To release the trigger, push the Trigger Release Button (Part J).

How to Switch to Freshwater Mode

Owners of the Sanitizer Pro love that they can easily switch between regular hose water and the Wysiwash Sanitizing solution. There are two ways to do this, depending on your needs. 

Option A: Use the Pro Handle for Pressurized Spraying

This option is best:

  • When you want increased pressure over your regular hose and to use fresh water only.
  • When you want to have a fan spray with fresh water. 

Step 1: Turn off the Wysiwash Sanitizer by pressing the Trigger Release Button (Part J). Do not switch from Sanitizing to Freshwater Mode while the Wysiwash solution is being emitted.

Step 2: Detach the Wysiwash Sanitizer from the Pro Handle with the Adjustable Nozzle (Part A) pointing down.

CAUTION: The solution inside the Wysiwash Sanitizer is concentrated and can stain. Take care to avoid contact with skin and clothing.

Step 3: Place the Wysiwash Sanitizer over a safe draining area. Tilt the adjustable nozzle (Part A) upwards so that the liquid can drain through Nozzle-End Female Quick Connector (Part G).

Step 4: Attach the Detachable Pro Nozzle (Part N) to use fresh water.

Option B: Use the Hose Only 

If you do not need additional pressure or you are not ready to drain the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro yet, you can remove the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro from the hose.

Step 1: Turn the hose off.

Step 2: Pull back on the Hose-End Female Quick Connector (Part L) to detach the Pro Handle from the hose.

Step 3: Turn the hose on. There is no water stop in the quick connector, so water will flow freely.

Best for:

When you do not need additional pressure. (Ex. Watering plants.)

When you are not ready to drain yet, and want to switch back to sanitizing quickly. (For example: Rinsing off a piece of metal equipment before continuing to sanitize.)

How to Drain the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro

Step 1: Disconnect the Sanitizer Pro from the Pro Handle by pulling the Nozzle-End Female Quick Connector (Part G).

Step 1: Point the Adjustable Nozzle (Part A) downward. This prevents the concentrated solution that remains in the system from spilling.

Step 2: With the nozzle downward, pull back the Nozzle-End Female Quick Connector (Part G) to disconnect the Pro Handle.

Step 3: Over a bucket or a sink, tilt the Adjustable Nozzle (Part A) upwards, so that the Sanitizer drains into the bucket/sink.

NOTE: The drainage is highly concentrated and can stain clothes. If skin comes in contact with the drain solution, rinse skin immediately.

How to Store the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro & Jacketed Caplets

Leave the caplet inside the Sanitizer Pro between uses. If you've left the jacket on the caplet  and drained the Sanitizer Pro properly, it should stay solid.

Store All Wysiwash Products in a Temperature Controlled Environment

Extreme changes in temperature can damage the caplets and Sanitizer. Do not store outside or in a shed or garage. 

If the Sanitizer Pro is stored in freezing temperatures, it can break. Especially if it has not been drained properly (think of how pipes can freeze). 

Failure to drain and store products properly voids the warranty. 

Ideally, store the Sanitizer Pro upside down, with the male end pointing down at an angle. This allows it to continue draining and maximizes the life of the caplet. Put a plastic or glass tray or bowl under it to catch any additional drips.

Store Wysiwash Jacketed Caplets & the Sanitizer Pro out of the reach of children and pets.

Common Issues & Troubleshooting

Loose Connection: Sanitizer Pro Handle

If water is spraying out from where the hose connects to the Sanitizer Pro Handle, you may need to tighten the Male Nipple (Part M). To tighten, hold the top of Part M steady, while using a padded wrench/pliers to turn the bottom of Part M clockwise. Tighten snugly but do not overtighten!

Build Up or “Corrosion” 

If the Sanitizer Pro has spots of calcium on it or seems clogged, give it a bath! Simply remove the caplet from the unit and store in a safe, plastic container to dry. Open the valve. Leave the caplet container disconnected from the rest of the Sanitizer-V, then soak the unit in white vinegar overnight (8 - 14 hours). To maximize the life of your unit, soak the unit monthly.

Sometimes people will call this "corrosion" but it's just built up calcium.

Calcium Deposits aka Hard Water Spots aka Residue

Calcium deposits can also build up on surfaces that you have sanitized. High gloss, painted, and textured surfaces will be more prone to show hard water spots.  When the source water is hard/high in minerals, or the system has not been drained after use and primed properly it can also increase the chance of calcium spots. 

Luckily, these are easy to remove or prevent by : 

  • Occasionally rinsing the surface with household vinegar to remove built up residue. 
  • Rinsing Wysiwash after adequate contact time on the surface. 
  • Squeegeeing after using Wysiwash.


At it's sanitizing concentration, Wysiwash does not stain. After speaking with many customers, even visiting and watching their protocols, we can confidently say that most stains can be avoided with proper protocols.

The most common cause of staining is skipping draining. Draining should be done every time you use Wysiwash. Be careful while disconnecting the Sanitizer-V from the hose and take caution to avoid the solution that drains out.

If staining occurs when Wysiwash is first started, find an area where splashing is unlikely to occur and prime Wysiwash for 60 seconds before continuing with normal sanitizing procedure.
