Pressure washer points

Pressure washer points
  • Most pressure washers are powered by electricity or gasoline. Electric washers are lightweight and best suited for smaller cleaning jobs. Gas-powered washers don't require an electrical outlet and are usually much more powerful.
  • Pressure washers are often rated by "cleaning units." CUs are calculated by the pounds per square inch of pressure multiplied by gallons of water delivered per minute. Most pressure washers rated at 3,000 CUs and above are gas-powered.
  • Pressure washers are dangerous tools and should be treated accordingly. Even low-power washers generate enough force to damage human skin.
