Zap Pro Review
Zap Pro is a new version of the Zap! restorer which has been around for many years. Touted in commercials by pitchman Brian Hyder, we’re told that Zap Pro is a “remodel in a bottle.” Does it really work as advertised, and is there any difference between this product and the Zap which is readily found in stores?
Note that this is a preliminary review until I can get my hands on a bottle of Zap Pro. It appears to be a very new product, based on its December 2016 website registration date. I doubt that any customers have actually received Zap pro as of this writing, as the website has only been live for a couple of weeks.
I do know that the “regular” Zap that is currently sold in stores contains Phosphoric Acid (7.1% by weight, 4.9 gram per use), and it isn’t clear if this new incarnation contains a higher concentration or a completely different formula, although I suspect it is probably just a different concentration.
Reviews for the regular Zap run the gamut, and there is little consensus as to whether it not it really works. On Amazon, it holds a 2.8 star rating, with a rather high percentage of 1 star ratings. That’s probably because no two cleaning jobs are the same, and results for any cleaner will vary greatly.
The Zap line of products could best described as a phosphoric acid cleaner that possesses no real advantage over products using the same ingredients. Reviews for the regular Zap are quite mixed, and I suspect that will be the case here.
I’ll update this space when I get more information on Zap Pro.
Zap Pro is promoted by TriStar Products, Inc., one of the big players in the As Seen on TV industry.
You can find numerous cleaners comprised of phosphoric acid. For example, Krud Kutter is a cleaner that also contains phosphoric acid and is sold in a gallon jug for about $17. It may pay to shop around.
