Wysiwash Jacketed Caplets: The jacketed caplets are concentrated calcium hypochlorite— a proven disinfectant and sanitizer. The caplets are biodegradable and eco-friendly.
NOTE: Do NOT remove the plastic jacket from the caplet. If the plastic jacket has been removed or damaged, dispose of the caplet.
How to Attach the Sanitizer Pro V to a Standard Garden Hose
Step 1: Unscrew the Caplet Container (C) from the Hydro Body (Part D).
Step 2: Place caplet inside the Caplet Container. Do not remove the plastic jacket. If the plastic jacket has been removed or damaged, dispose of the caplet.
NOTE: We recommend you wear gloves when handling the Jacketed Caplets. While the Wysiwash solution does not irritate skin, in its solid, concentrated form it can irritate eyes and skin.
Step 3: Secure the Hydro Body of the Sanitizer Pro V to the Caplet Container. Tighten until snug, but do not over-tighten.
Step 4: Thread the Pro V Control Valve (Part F) onto your garden hose.
Step 5: There is a "neck" on the opposing end of the Pro Female Quick Connector (Part E) that will slide back toward the hose end. Pull the neck back, insert the Sanitizer Pro V Hydro Body Connector (Part G) into the Female Quick Connector, and then release the neck. After, press the two parts gently together to make sure the two parts are securely connected.
How to Use the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro V to Sanitize
Step 1: Turn on the hose.
Step 2: To turn on the unit, twist the sleeve of the Pro Adjustable Nozzle (Part A). Begin with a gentle mist, not a targeted spray. Misting first prevents pathogens from becoming airborne.
Step 3: PRIME: Spray into a drain, bucket, or side area to prime the system. This ensures that the solution is at an effective concentration.
New caplet: Prime for 1 - 2 minutes.
Previously used caplet: Prime for 30 - 40 seconds. Prime for 1 - 2 minutes.
Step 4: After the whole area has been sprayed with a gentle mist, adjust the nozzle to a narrower cone or jet for heavily soiled areas to remove any remaining organic waste. To adjust the spray, twist the sleeve on the stem of the Pro Adjustable Nozzle (Part A) to adjust the spray.
Step 5: Allow Wysiwash to set for at least 10 minutes.
Optional rinsing: For uncoated metal or high gloss surfaces, we recommend rinsing. For most other surfaces, rinsing is not necessary.
Step 6: Either squeegee, or allow the area to completely air dry. Do not reintroduce animals or children into the area until there are no longer pools of Wysiwash solution and the area is mostly dry.
How to Switch to Freshwater Mode
With the Sanitizer Pro V, you can easily switch between regular hose water and the Wysiwash Sanitizing solution.
If you do not need additional pressure or you are not ready to drain the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro V yet, you can remove the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro V from the hose.
Step 1: Turn the hose off.
Step 2: Pull back the neck on the Pro Female Quick Connector (Part E) to detach the Pro V Hydro Body Connector (Part G) from the Pro V Control Valve (Part F).
Step 3: Turn the Pro V Control Valve (Part F) on. There is no water stop in the quick connector, so water will flow freely. This is best for:
When you do not need additional pressure, like watering plants or filling up dog water bowls.
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 V
Draining is key to keeping your Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro V in good shape. Drain Wysiwash every time you use it and any time more than 10 minutes will go by without using it.
NOTE: Take caution to avoid contact with clothing while draining - the drained solution is more concentrated and may stain. Rinse the area where Wysiwash has been drained to avoid calcium spots from accumulating.
Step 1: Make sure the Pro V Control Valve (Part F) is switched to Off.
Step 2: Disconnect the Sanitizer Pro V from the Pro Female Quick Connector (Part E) by sliding the "neck" of the connector toward the hose side again to release.
Step 3: In a bucket, drain, or sink, turn the Sanitizer Pro V upside down and point the Pro V Hydro Body Connector (Part G) downward.
Step 4: The bottom of the Caplet Container (Part C) should be pointed upwards at a slight angle. This allows water to drain from the bottom of the Caplet Container.
Step 5: Store the Sanitizer Pro V in this position to maximize the life of your caplets.
How to Store the Wysiwash Sanitizer Pro V & Jacketed Caplets
Leave the caplet inside the Sanitizer Pro V between uses. If you've left the jacket on the caplet and drained the Sanitizer Pro V properly, it should stay solid when used regularly.
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 V 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.
We recommend storing the Sanitizer Pro V 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 V out of the reach of children and pets.
Common Issues & Troubleshooting
Build Up or “Corrosion”
If the Sanitizer Pro V 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. Leave the caplet container disconnected from the rest of the Sanitizer Pro 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 its 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 Pro V from the Pro Female Quick Connector 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.
