Winter 4 Bucket Wash

Recommended Posts

Had a day above freezing here in Canada, so broke out the new Worx HydroShot and gave it a whirl.  All my outside faucets are shut off for winter, so this system kinda made sense...only issue I ran into is battery longevity, might look into getting a second battery to ensure I can also wash my wife's truck in one shot.... car is white, so hard to tell how dirty it was, but there was a fair amount of salt on it and with just the HydroShot most came off before breaking out the car shampoo and finishing it off with a detail spray dry.  Car had LPS applied to it in Sept. and still beads ups, so still working...maybe next time I'll top it off with some G&G.

Most I've ever used is 3 and I got crazy looks from my wife.  Your ride looks nice and clean for sure! :2thumbs:

Looks great but 4 buckets!? I understand 3(1 for wheels then the traditional 2 bucket) but why 4.

 

Two of the buckets were clear water for the HydroShot.. All my outside faucets are shut off for winter, so that was my water source.  The other two were for a normal 2 bucket wash, didn't bother with the wheels since it's winter time, so they didn't get a lot of attention, just took an old wash mit and after done washing the car, just gave them a quick once over with the remaining water.

How do you like your Worx Hydroshot? I'm going to pick one up for my applying my pre-wash before doing a rinseless wash.

 

It works pretty good, more pressure than a hose, but not a lot of pressure behind it.  For my Venza, the battery was done by the time I finished rinsing off the car after soap, think for a larger vehicle, I may need two batteries.  It sure did beat waiting an hour in line at the local pay and spray to just rinse off the car.

Trucks in Canada look a lil different than the ones here in the states. :D

 

I like the setup! I’m still weighing all of my options for the “power” sprayer I’ll be adding into my arsenal.

Nice work, and I like the concept of the tool, I would bet if you had more of their tools it would make it more efficient to use as you would probably have had more of the batteries.
