"Dilutable" TFR or pre wash for hand pump pressure sprayer

Hi

I have a 3 litre garden spray thingy that you pump a handle on to build up pressure then you can spray weedkiller or whatever from.

Was thinking one of these could be used for applying diluted pre-wash TFR or pre wash "stuff". I currently use Demon rapid dirt shifter but at £7 a pop its quite expensive.

So is there something I can buy, dilute to some level and then use in the pressure sprayer?

Grateful for any tips on stuff and where to buy it!

Thanks

Power maxed TFR is quite good, so it BH auto foam. VP citrus pre wash also worth a shout

I use a 5l one diluted 10:1 with power maxed tfr works great.

Bilt Hamber Surfex HD, dilutes extremely well but will degrade any existing protection.

I put 150ml of Bilt Hamber Auto Foam and 1,850ml of "tap hot" water in my pump sprayer, does a grand job

Thanks all for the replies.

3 main options then it seems.

Powermaxed TFR, BH auto foam and VP citrus.

Where would any of these be available? Are they all online only purchases?

Thanks again.
