Bleach with my new pressure washer

I want to make sure its ok to use bleach with my new pressure washer... Excell EPW2123100 3100 PSI 2.8 GPM Cold Water 212CC Gas Powered Pressure Washer

thank you very much for any advice.
1. Using a bleach / water solution that my siphon would go into, then i when i rinse i would put my siphon into a bucket of a cleaner water, just to clean out the siphon tube.

I would showy you pics of the pump but i can't post any.

It is really a tricky task, therefore care with preventive action needs to be taken while handling & cleaning it. I always suggest, never go nontoxic product for cleaning as they are harmful for you and your environment. Bleach is not a good cleaner for houses as it can damage the pump. Have you ever tried simple green type products in pressure washers?

Don't put SH through your pressure lines as it shortens there life dramatically even if you flush them thoroughly. Try an X jet or similar. There are plenty cheaper types on Ebay. They only run about 5% but fantastic for a normal green building.

Don't run bleach through your pressure washer. You'll damage the pump and the hose, and you may also negate the manufacturer warranty. There are a variety of pressure washer detergents for all sorts of cleaning needs that are rather inexpensive and do an excellent job cleaning.

Bleach is fine to run through your injector, yes it might corrode the gun a little but with regular use that is not a problem.
I downstreamed over 500 gallons last year (2017) and only went through 3 injectors.
