3 Things to look for when Pressure Washer Shopping:

Pressure washers are a fast and efficient way to clean, treat or prepare almost any surface. But you may be getting bogged down in the details when deciding which one will be best for you. While building the web-pages for our pressure washers, I learned there are really only 3 main things to consider when shopping.

1. Fuel: What fuel would be easiest to power your system should be the first choice. Electric models tend to last longer, because they have less moving parts. On the other hand Gas and Diesel powered pressure washers generally provide more power (psi).

2. PSI: This basically means the force of the water comes out of the washer. PSI will determine whether the unit is used for light duty (car washing,) or heavy duty (striping the bark from trees.)

1300-1800 PSI

2000-3000 PSI

3000-4000+ PSI

Light duty, less frequent jobs (Car washing, shutter cleaning, spot cleaning) Heavy duty, more frequent jobs (Deck and pavement cleaning, sidewalks) Very frequent, heavy cleaning jobs (Industrial cleaning, concrete pavement, siding, paint stripping)

3. Hot vs. Cold Water: Cold pressure washers are ideal for removing dirt. However, if the surface you are cleaning is mixed with oil or grease, a cold water pressure washer won’t clean as well as a hot water pressure washer.
