GPM Gallons per minute is the volume of water that flows from the washer per minute. The higher the Gallons per minute, the larger a job you can carry out. Weight: (Weight in pounds) The weight is extreamly important as the more powerful washers can be very heavy. Gas pressure washers will be the most powerful but also the most heavy. The graphic below explains what sort of PSI and GPM you will need for different jobs. - What To Look For When Buying A Pressure Washer Pressure washers which are also sometimes referred to as power washers or jet washers are primarily used for the effective removal of ingrained dirt. They work by discharging a concentrated and powerful jet of water which dislodges dirt and grime, but actually use less water than if you were to use a regular hose for the same purpose. Understanding Pressure Washer Features There are slight variations between different models, and understanding what features are available and what they do will help you make a good choice. The following are some of the most commonly found features.

Understanding Pressure Washer Features There are slight variations between different models, and understanding what features are available and what they do will help you make a good choice. The following are some of the most commonly found features. Detergent Tank A detergent tank allows you to enhance the cleaning power as you can add specially formulated cleaning detergents to the tank, which will then be applied to dirty surfaces through the nozzle. For most jobs, an added detergent is unnecessary, but it is a worthwhile feature to look for if you intend to use the power washer for cleaning your car. If you have a big enough budget, it is much better to purchase a model where the detergent tank is fully integrated into the product. These tend to be easier to use, more effective and can hold a greater amount of detergent for cleaning larger surface areas. If you are purchasing a smaller or cheaper model then you may find that some products come with a detachable detergent tank, which is essentially a large bottle which can be added onto the machine. This is much less convenient and can be difficult to attach securely, depending on the model. Alternatively, there are a few brands which offer products with a suction tube, for use with detergents. This allows the user to use any suitable container as a detergent tank, without the need of a dedicated attachment. Pressure Gauge A growing number of products come with a pressure gauge, especially the models at the higher end of the budget spectrum. However, it is worth noting that when it comes to domestic use the gauge is little more than a gimmick. Unless you are using an industrial machine there is very little variation in the pressure of the pump, therefore the gauge serves no practical purpose. Wheels And Handles If you are purchasing a heavier machine (check the product specification for the weight), then it is a good idea to look for models with wheels. This might seem like a small and insignificant feature, but it is the sort of thing buyers regret with retrospect if they purchase a unit which does not have them included. If you know that you are likely to be carrying it between locations or up and down steps then also check if the machine has a good carry handle. On Board Attachment Storage Unless you are purchasing a very basic model, it is likely that your pressure washer comes with attachments. It is much more desirable to opt for a product which has on board storage for these, as it is more convenient and you are less likely to lose any parts. Cable Tidy Ideally, you want to purchase a pressure washer which has an integrated cable reel which will keep the power cable neatly out of the way, where it wont get tangled in knots or be a trip hazard. Less sophisticated models may have hooks which you can wind the power cable around for storage. Safety Features Although pressure washers are a relatively safe gadget, they should still come with a safety lock on the trigger which will prevent the jet from being activated by accident. If possible, check how well designed the safety lock is before making your final purchase choice. You want a lock which cannot easily be overridden by a curious child, but you also dont want a lock which is so secure that even an adult finds it difficult to activate the trigger. Understanding Pressure Washer Accessories Most models will come with some accessories as standard, and you may also be able to buy them separately if you have specific demands from your pressure washer. These are some of the power washer accessories which are available. Lances If you are buying a very simple model then you will probably only get one lance with the machine, but the more expensive machines may come with several. Different lances are intended for different types of use, so if you dont actually need multiple lances then it isnt worth paying a premium for a product which has several. Fixed Jet Lances - This type of lance is very basic, and is the standard for most models. You cannot adjust the force of the jet. Rotary Lances As you move a rotary lance closer to the cleaning surface it will give the jet more power, but you cant manually adjust the pressure. They are used for cleaning patios and paving slabs but must not be used on cars or wooden surfaces (such as a deck). Variable Pressure Lances - Purchasing a model with an adjustable lance is ideal if you are going to be cleaning surfaces which are delicate of more easily damaged, such as cars.

Variable Pressure Lances - Purchasing a model with an adjustable lance is ideal if you are going to be cleaning surfaces which are delicate of more easily damaged, such as cars. Angled Lances - This type of lance is designed to get into hard to reach areas, such as the nooks and crannies of garden furniture and the underside of vehicles. Brushes Many models will also come with a brush or multiple brushes. These are very good for cleaning windows, and are a great feature to look for if you have a greenhouse or a conservatory. A brush is also a very handy attachment if you are primarily going to be using the it for cleaning your car. Patio Cleaner Attachments A patio cleaner attachment will add around $40 to the price, and can also be bought separately. They can make the job much quicker and more efficient, but are not very good for removing dirt from between paving slabs. Understanding the purpose of the above features will help you to find a pressure washer which ideally suits your needs. Useful articles and tips: How Much PSI Does An Electric Pressure Washer Need? Its important to understand that there are wide range of power washer makes and models. When it comes to electric power washers, the amount of PSI (Pounds per Square Inch), that is really important. Below you find a range of standard washer PSI rankings and what sort of jobs they are ideal for. Between 1300 to 1800 PSI These washers are ideal for light cleaning jobs and infrequent use. This can include mold and mildew removal, cleaning outdoor furniture, cars, windows, and exterior spot cleaning. Between 2000 to 3000 PSI Washers in this PSI range are used by many business owners, as t
