Effortless Pad Cleaning
The Universal Pad Washer is the fastest and most convenient way to clean and refresh all kinds of polishing pads for efficient polishing work and best results. Instead of using a brush and elbow grease, the Universal Pad Washer uses the power of your dual action, rotary, or long throw polisher to deep clean foam, wool, and microfiber polishing pads.
Clean Pads Work Better
When polishing pads clog up with spent product and paint residue, they can no longer produce the correct amount of friction and produce sub-par polishing results and premature wear. Washing all types of polishing pads with the Universal Pad Washer removes more residues and particle abrasives than any other pad cleaning method or tool.
How To Use:
Cleaning Polishing Pads
Fully depress Grit Guard screen down inside the bucket and fill with water until the level is about ¼” above the screen surface.
Add approximately three 16 oz. bottle capfuls (or one 1 gallon jug capful) of Chemical Guys Pad Cleaner into the bucket.
Attach the soiled polishing pad to your machine polisher, insert into the Universal Pad Washer, then close the splash shield lid.
Pump the pad into the cleaning solution to soak the buffing surface, then hold it inside the water and spin the machine on its lowest speed setting.
Work the spinning pad in and out of the water for 20 seconds, or until all polish residues are flushed clean.
Hold buffing pad outside of the water underneath the splash shield and spin the machine on its highest setting to fling out all soaked up water.
Allow the spinning machine to fling out the water for about 20 seconds, or until the pad is just damp to the touch.
Servicing The Universal Pad Washer
Clean out the Universal Pad Washer after every polishing job to avoid mold and mildew growth inside the standing water cleaning solution.
Unscrew the splash shield lid and carefully pour out all the water and residue from the bucket.
Take care to not lose any part of the spring mechanism base, pumps, springs, Grit Guard Screen, or the four orange rubber feet.
Fully rinse out the bucket, pumping mechanism, and Grit Guard screen to remove any spent polishing abrasive and paintwork residues.
For deep-cleaning service, disassemble the pumps and springs from the base and scrub any polish residue buildup with a part cleaning brush and suitable degreaser.
Fully rinse out the bucket and all internal components, and allow to air dry to avoid mildew or mold growth.
Store the Universal Pad Washer with the included Gamma Seal Lid sealed for long term storage to avoid dust and dirt infiltration.
