I tested my suction ratio using the black soap nozzle and it was 20:1. So, spraying at 2.5gpm you will get 8 minutes or so of detergent/water mix.

NorthStar does not recommend any type of chemical to be run through the pump. The soap injector provided can be used with chemicals that are not a corrosive or chlorine type ingredient.

No compression release on this model, but it does pull very easily.

If you are concerned, you might consider a model with electric start.
