I started using the WysiWash system at my kennel a few years ago. I have really been impressed with how quick and easy it makes disinfecting my dog runs. In the past I would use a water and bleach mixture. Getting it mixed was a pain and it kept me from doing it on a regular basis.
With the WysiWash Sanitizing Sprayer I can disinfect my runs quickly without all the hassle.
The only thing I like to stress to folks is to make sure you don't splash your clothes! I ruined a couple of shirts by not paying attention to what I was doing.
Today we're going to look at the Wysiwash kennel disinfecting system. This is a great thing if you've got a kennel that you need to clean on a regular basis. I use it for mine. I've got a 12 run kennel. This makes disinfecting the entire kennel just really fast. It's a really simple system to use. I grew up using Clorox beach. You could tell what clothes we used to clean the kennel in based off of the Clorox stains that were on them. This eliminates that type of issue.
What I do with mine, some folks use this as a complete system. They wash down their kennel every time with this. It hooks up to your hose. And then you've got the caplets that come with it. Those go down into here. So it does all the mixing for you in the system.
I don't use mine that way. Some of it's got to do with water pressure and some of it's just got to do with the fact that I'd rather clean the kennel and then disinfect it.
What I typically do is I scoop my kennels, I hose them down, and then I disinfect them with my Wysiwash. And so, I'm not using disinfectant strictly to clean. I'm using it to go in and just disinfect after the kennel runs are cleaned.
It's a great system. It is going to take care of all of your bacteria and your viruses and just keep your dogs healthy. We have used it for a long time. It works really well. It's the Wysiwash kennel cleaning system.

"This is by far the best spent money on a sanitizer that really does get out all odors from males urinating outside in the same spot day after day!"
By: Kavallerie Shepherds From VT
Family pet. This is by far the best spent money on a sanitizer that really does get out all odors from males urinating outside in the same spot day after day! With the Wysiwash you smell NO odor. It does not mask it, it really does make it just go away. We even tried the Wysiwash on the back side of the house that gets no sun, so the soil grows algae and foundation becomes green and musty. No more smell there either! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product, and use it everyday (probably don't have to but i'm obsessed with keeping things clean! I also found that it works as a mopping detergent for our dogs room tile floors. Gets rid of all odors. I fill it up with the Wysiwash, and bring it in and use it immediately to mop all surfaces and have even used the solution to clean the crates and walls! If you're hesitant because of price, don't be! This will save you time and really work like it says! Side note: I do clean out kennels prior to using this product. I do not count on it to "wash away" feces, etc... Our kennels are gravel runs, and our dogs DO NOT stay kenneled 24/7.

"I found WYSIWASH to be multi-purpose. While great in kennel area, it will also clean and disinfect any hard surfaces like walkways, crushed stone, and take the mold off decks, brick work and siding."
By: Dog Owner
Hunts. Family pet. I found WYSIWASH to be multi-purpose. While great in kennel area, it will also clean and disinfect any hard surfaces like walkways, crushed stone, and take the mold off decks, brick work and siding. It's not like power washing, so don't expect that instant gratification, but it works very well. It is also easy to use and now part of my routine. I find it's seems to work better on a 1/2 inch width over a standard 3/4 inch hose, but I could be wrong about this.

Wysiwash Sanitizing-V is a revolutionary, patented, 21st-century system that changes the way people sanitize. Wysiwash means disinfection from the end of a water hose! The Wysiwash System will effectively clean, sanitize, and eliminate odors while blasting away dirt with a jet stream of water. The hydro-injection "venturi system" produces a solution of hypochlorous acid that is up to 120 times more effective than liquid bleach.
Wysiwash is so easy to use that you will sanitize more often with increased effectiveness. Simply connect the Wysiwash Sanitizer to the hose and spray. There is no need to worry about proper dispensing -- it's automatic!
Wysiwash uses a low concentration of highly-effective HOCL that is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. While it's not recommended that you douse your dogs, sanitizing the area will NOT leave hot spots with high concentrations that will irritate your dog's skin. Wysiwash is also non-mutagenic, non-teratogenic, and non-carcinogenic. In other words, it doesn't cause mutations, birth defects, or cancer, making it safe for pregnant bitches.

Technical Information from Wysi Wash:
Chlorine has been used in one way or another for over one hundred years as an effective yet affordable sanitizer. Chlorine used for disinfection is available in three different physical forms: solid (calcium hypochlorite), liquid (sodium hypochlorite), and gas (chlorine gas). The solid form (calcium hypochlorite -- the compound used in Wysiwash) is much less corrosive and exponentially more effective than liquid bleach (sodium hypochlorite) for reasons described below and causes less damage to agricultural produce and mechanical equipment than the other two forms. The gaseous form (chlorine gas), while effective, is quite dangerous and more complicated to use than the other two forms.
Wysiwash utilizes hypochlorous acid, the most powerful active ingredient in chlorine solutions. It undergoes oxidation to affect the reproduction and metabolism of microorganisms. This results in immediate sanitization through the elimination of pathogens.
Chlorine in each of its three physical forms kills microorganisms through a fairly simple chemical reaction. After chlorine is added to water, it breaks down into many different chemicals, including hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and the hypochlorite ion (OCl-). Both substances kill microorganisms and bacteria by attacking the lipids in the cell walls and destroying the enzymes and structures inside the cell, thus rendering them oxidized and harmless. The difference between hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite ions is the speed at which they oxidize. Hypochlorous acid is able to oxidize the organisms in several seconds, while the hypochlorite ion may take up to 30 minutes or longer.
The levels of hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite ions vary with the solution's pH level. If the pH is too high, not enough hypochlorous acid is present and sanitization can take much longer than with a lower pH. Ideally, the level of pH in the solution should be between 7 and 8, which is typical for a water hose. Once the hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite ions are finished sanitizing, they combine naturally with another chemical in the environment, such as ammonia, or are broken down into single atoms. Both of these processes render the chlorine harmless, thus making Wysiwash completely biodegradable!

WysiWash Versus Household Bleach
Because of the pervasive misunderstanding and misuse of household (liquid) bleach, it is necessary to dispel two incorrect and dangerous assumptions associated with household bleach (sodium hypochlorite).
Liquid bleach does not lose potency until you create a sodium hypochlorite solution.
Liquid bleach is already a sodium hypochlorite solution and therefore loses its chlorine content continuously from the moment of manufacture. Most users of household bleach believe that it does not lose its strength until it is combined with water. Liquid bleach is already combined with water. In reality, users are diluting an already diluted sodium hypochlorite solution when they add water to it. Most bottles of bleach have lost HALF or more of their original chlorine content by the time of purchase! However, calcium hypochlorite, the ingredient used in Wysiwash, only loses 5% of its initial potency in eighteen months.
Liquid bleach is a powerful and effective disinfectant.
In reality, lye is the substance in bleach that makes bleach seem powerful because of all its negative effects. In order to stabilize the chlorine in the liquid solution, bleach manufacturers add lye to the solution, thus raising the pH of that solution to 11.5. Lye causes skin burns, noxious chloramine gas, and corrosion in equipment. Lye will kill some germs, but it requires a very long contact time, as well as a high concentration. Calcium hypochlorite, the ingredient in Wysiwash, contains no lye.
For a chlorine solution to be an effective disinfectant, it must meet the chlorine demand. This is the amount of free available chlorine (FAC), often called hypochlorous acid or HOCl, needed to disinfect or oxidize organic matter before the FAC residual is achieved. If the required chlorine demand is not met, complete disinfection is not possible.
As mentioned above, the strong disinfectant in chlorine is hypochlorous acid, which exists in only trace amounts when a chlorine solution has a pH level greater than 9. What mostly exists in household bleach solutions is the hypochlorite ion, which is up to 120 times less effective than hypochlorous acid as a disinfectant. Numerous studies prove this, including Kapoor, S.K., University of Illinois (1968) based on the book Disinfections and Sterilization written by G. Sykes (1965). This is why bleach has documented failures in eliminating dangerous pathogens like hepatitis and parvovirus. Again, the most effective substance found in chlorine, hypochlorous acid, barely exists in household bleach solutions because of its pH level! Wysiwash, a calcium hypochlorite solution, has a pH below 8.5, allowing for the maximum amount of hypochlorous acid, which results in a powerful sanitizer at an extremely cost-effective price.
Balancing the many demands placed upon businesses and consumers by the microbial world with the budgetary realities and safety concerns of today is indeed a difficult task. Fortunately, that task is now made easier with the Wysiwash system. Wysiwash, the patented chlorine delivery system for use with solid calcium hypochlorite tablets, enables anyone to deliver USDA-approved levels of active chlorine at the end of any water hose in a safe and easy-to-use manner. It is indeed rare for a product of such innovation and effectiveness to arrive on the scene without requiring specialized training, certifications, or even electricity to begin safely using it. After reading the directions, the Wysiwash user can literally pick up the unit and begin sanitizing immediately, with little or no risk to the user or the environment.
Based on solid dispensing technology, Wysiwash reduces shipping costs, spillage risks, environmental pollutants, storage space requirements, and the number of hazardous materials stored in the workplace and home. Just attach the Wysiwash to any garden hose end, point, and spray to deliver the most effective and affordable sanitizer available anywhere. Wysiwash reduces cleaning times by at least half, which directly saves money for both businesses and private consumers. Finally, Wysiwash is biodegradable, so there is no need to worry about dangerous residual material that can harm the environment. It is safe. It is simple. It is unsurpassed. It is time for you to wash your concerns away and enjoy the magic of Wysiwash, the ultimate cleaning solution.
