Frequently Asked Questions

We always offer training and advice with any item of equipment purchased from ourselves, but just in case you forget - here are a few of the main points and more commonly asked questions. 

 

How Much Water Does the Pressure Washer Need? 

This depends on the model, for example, Karcher's pressure washers typically have a flow rate between 1.25 and 2.5 gallons per minute.

Does cleaning quicker save water?

Electric pressure washers are equipped with an electrically powered pump which raises the water pressure by up to 40X. With this pressure, water is conveyed through the high-pressure hose to a lance, where it ejects as a sharp, concentrated jet from a nozzle, creating a robust cleaning power. If the spray isn't activated, the pump switches off automatically. Using a pressure washer allows you to carry out cleaning tasks faster than conventional methods while using less water.

Can Pressure Washers Be Used to Clean Cars?

A simple spray of your vehicle with a pressure washer will remove coarse dirt. We would recommend using a cleaning agent at a low pressure for a more thorough clean. You can also use a wash brush to distribute the cleaning agent more effectively and remove stubborn debris.

What is a Backflow Preventer?

A backflow preventer stops detergent from getting into your water system.

What should I do if my pressure washer isn't building up pressure?

Follow these simple steps to fix this issue -

Connect the machine to a water supply and turn on the tap

Remove the filter from the water inlet and have it cleaned

Turn on the pressure washer on without the steel pipe and allow it to run until there is no air coming from the spray gun

Check the accessories you are using are correct

If the pressure and suction valves have started to leak and there is water coming out of the casing, or if the machine is throbbing please get in touch with Britclean and we can arrange an appointment with you to assess the problems.

If the pressure washers valve is stuck, we would also recommend getting in touch and we can advise the next course of action

What Should I Do if the Machine Sputters or Goes off?

Firstly clean the nozzle insert then check you are using the correct nozzle and if there is enough water coming out.
