Unhappy Primer Removal from Concrete

I need help.

Does anyone have any suggestions on products and/or methods to use in removing a wall based primer on a concrete floor (garage)? I was told that I would need to complete remove this type of primer prior to using a concrete based primer and then a concrete based paint. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums

Is it feasable to use a pressure washer? If it is latex that might be all you need. Oil base will require the use of paint remover.

I wouldn't be surprised if it scraped right up after pressure washing
A small warning: Some lesser concrete is easily etched by high powered pressure washing, use caution and low pressure at first
