Just wondering if anyone has tried or had any luck with liquid tsp. Most of it is a substitute for the real thing, it is a concentrate, although it seems it may be more expensive. Just curious, let me know if you have experienced  or encountered it.

     I haven't seen this covered previously, so here goes. WE (emphasis mine) add our surfactant BEFORE we leave for a job, with the tank filled.
