The material is not water soluble. It is made from coal slag. I would worry more about the material that you blast off than this media.

The Black Diamond blasting abrasive can be used with the pressure washer attachment ( Item #2260 see below). The Black Diamond blasting material does not absorb water and will still work in wet applications.
