Pressure Washing Basics

I’ll describe my pressure washer cleaning experiences, but bear in mind that much of what you’ll understand will come from using the pressure washer on your own. Consider learning how to ride a bicycle. I can’t teach you how to ride a bicycle; it takes practise, action, and doing it on your own.

The pressure washer spray tips are the first thing you can become acquainted with. The four or five digit number stamped onto the nozzle identifies the pressure washer spray tips. The number represents the spray angle as well as the orifice height. The spray angle in degrees is represented by the first two digits of the nozzle number.You may want to check out Ottawa eavestrough cleaning for more.

The orifice size is indicated by the last digits of the nozzle number. These figures do not imply the orifice’s gallons per minute (GPM), flow rate, or diameter in inches. Use care when implementing these suggestions. If the spray pressure from these nozzles from a 4000 PSI pump is directed directly at anyone, it may cause serious injury.

Even, when connecting the nozzle to the end of your trigger device, make sure it is securely locked in place. If the nozzle is not locked in place, it may fly off the end and become lost or strike someone. Also, if the nozzle breaks off, you can lose the tiny rubber seals at the end of the spray gun. It’s a smart idea to get extra rubber seals for your trigger gun because your pressure washer would be useless without them.

I strongly advise you to begin acquiring pressure washer experience by simply pressure washing the outside of your home or calling a friend and asking if you should test out your new pressure washer. Experiment with the various spray nozzles on various materials lying around your home.

Take note of the various degree spray patterns for each of the four spray nozzles and how the effectiveness increases or starts to affect the surface at different distances. Examine how the water pressure cleans typical surfaces used on construction sites, such as asphalt, wood, or vinyl siding. I don’t suggest doing any pressure washing jobs until you’re familiar with the system and understand how the cleaning process functions.
