    Meguyiars Pad washer

    So i bought this, mainly to save some bucks instead of buying new pads. Seems like a simple thing... However

    It says
    "The water level should be no more then 1/4 above the Grit guard insert, with springs fully compressed"
    . Probably makes sense for a US guy but not for a "swede"- 1/4 of what?

    I get that i should press the grit guard down as much as i can, then fill with water. But i really dont understand how much water i should fill it with. 1/4 of what the thickness of the gritguard or what? Would have been great with a ""MAX" mark on the bucket, but as i said maybe that its crystal clear for US peeps :/

    I think i may got it now. Press down the gruitguard full, then fill it with water 1/4 above it? (the space thats left)

    I am going to guess it means 1/4 inch above it.

    Here is an extract and link to AutoGeek info.

    https://www.autogeek.net/meguiars-pad-washer.html
    "The grid insert is supported by springs so you simply have to press the pad against it until the pad is touching the water. No manual adjustment is needed. "

    It sounds like you want to ouse the tool as a washer and dryer (near dry).

    So you push down on the cleaning guard just enough to get the pad wet while washing.
    Then lift up pad slightly for a spin cycle to dry water from the pad.

    We dont use inches here, we use millimeters and centimeters. But 1 inch is 2,54 centimeters so roughly ~0,5 centimeters then above the gritguard (compressed)

    If you meant "Meguiars", try to spell correctly with a 3 year old in your lap. After i posted it we went out to play i saw it was wrong later on, but i couldn't edit it so i thought well, who cares really: Guess i know now
