Pressure washing away dirt on a wooden panel

What is the best size for pressure washers?

No matter what type of pressure washer you choose from our selection here at Britclean, you will need to make an informed decision about the size of the engine.

Like any other engine-powered machine, the size of the engine determines the total power of the unit. Smaller engines will not be able to produce the water pressure or the gallon-per-minute output of larger engines.

For this blog, we will talk you through the four different engines for pressure washers.

What are the different engines for pressure washers?

Light-duty power washers – Light-duty washers produce water levels below 2000 PSI, making them the best choice when cleaning the occasional outdoor household item, a small deck or a patio.

Medium-duty power washers – Planning to clean your home’s siding, driveway or fencing – you may want to consider using a medium-duty cleaner. This type of pressure washer produces water pressure levels of between 2000 and 2800 PSI.

Heavy-duty power washers – If you are planning to clean large areas of concrete or needing to reach a second story, using a heavy-duty washer may be your best bet. They reach pressure levels of between 2900 and 3300 PSI.

Professional power washers – If you are planning to do plenty of pressure washing on tasks such as preparing your home’s exterior for a repainting job – consider buying or hiring a professional-grade washer. The extra-heavy-duty engine is designed specifically to handle big jobs that could take hours to complete. These power washers produce water pressure levels of 3300 PSI and higher.

No matter which pressure washer you choose, don’t forget to take the GPM measurement into account.
