A pressure washer is a machine that pressurizes water to clean a dirty area. The pressure is known as PSI – Pounds per Square Inch. So, in a pressure washer that runs 5 GPM, Gallons Per Minute @ 3000 PSI, or pounds per square inch, this would be the cleaning power of this machine. A machine like this can clean off mold, dirt, grim, mud, and gum. There are so many different pressure washers for different applications. There are machines with a gasoline engine that need to be portable for around the house, farm, and barns. Ones with electric motor for hog barns, truck wash and workshops. Diesel engine for trailers, municipalities, and construction sites. All of these can also have a heater to make them hot water. Now with hot water you cut your cleaning time sometimes in half. If you were going to wash down your barn and it takes you three hours, then with a hot water unit it may only take you 1 ½ hours. A valuable time savings. A pressure washer comes with high pressure hose and spray gun. At the end of the spray wand there is a lot of different choices of nozzles. There are those that pinpoint like in the case of cleaning gum, there are those that have a 60-degree spray fan for rinsing off chemical. There are nozzles that are a variable fan from 0 to 60 degrees. If you have clogged drains, use a pressure washer with a jetter tip. This is a nozzle with one spray forward while there are 3 or more sprays backwards which helps the hose get through the pipe and clog.
