    • In order to keep your SpeedTreater-TX in tip-top shape, remove the nozzle after use, daily.

    • Put the nozzle and filter in a small glass bottle filled with Cloggy No More cleaning solution.

    • Alternatively, a 50/50 mix of distilled water and Simple Green can be used.

    • The SpeedTreater-TX allows you to flush the lines easily, without wasting pretreatment.

    • We recommend flushing the lines at the end of the week, and before known periods of downtime.

  2. Open the panel at the back of the machine by turning the silver knob counter-clockwise. Remove the catch basin. Check how full the catch basin is. Empty it if necessary.
