Pressure Washer Buying Guide

Pressure washers are ideal for cleaning a range of items outdoors such as cars, patio furniture and driveways. They can also be used to remove old paint and dirt from wood or metal to prepare them for repainting. They are at least 10 times more powerful than an ordinary garden hose and use less water.

What can I clean with a Pressure Washer?

You can clean cars, driveways, garden furniture, dog kennels, barbecue grills and anything else you can think of!

How well / how quickly will it clean them?

The cleaning results depend upon the following factors:

  • How powerful the motor is.
  • Whether or not you are using detergent.
  • Whether you use hot or cold water (especially for greasy items such as bbq grills).
  • How far away you are from the item you are cleaning.
  • How wide the spray angle is.
  • The amount of time spent cleaning.

How do I know which machine is right for me?

  • How portable do you need your machine to be? High specification machines can be heavy so look for a model with wheels.
  • Check out if the accessories you will need (such as a car wash brush) are included with the machine.
  • Do you want to use your machine for a variety of different uses? If so, choose one with variable pressure.
  • Light duty (100 bar) are suitable for cleaning garden furniture, outdoor toys, garden tools and bikes.
  • Light to medium duty (100 - 110 bar) are suitable for cleaning vehicles, guttering, fences and pools.
  • Medium to heavy duty (100 - 130 bar) are suitable for cleaning driveways, bricks and decking.
  • The larger the motor (watts) the more powerful the machine will be.

Should I take any safety precautions?

  • Wear eye protection in the form of safety goggles. Powerful spray into your eye could blind you. Never, ever point the spray at anyone else as an intense water spray can cause serious injury.
