The latest addition to the portable pressure gas washer family is the 3000 psi option. If you are looking for a high pressure washer, but don’t need to be in a hurry, then this could be a good choice. Prior, to purchasing one of these machines though, it is important that you understand how they work so that you can make a sound decision about buying one. Understanding how a pressure washer works is absolutely essential before you buy.
A standard gauge of pressure is used to measure the pressure that a machine is able to exert from water and detergent. The actual PSI is usually indicated on the machine’s label or can be obtained by using some sort of gauge. There are also some detergents and cleaning agents which will indicate the PSI they can handle. For example, laundry detergent may indicate a lower number than those for bleach. Portable pressure washers are generally only rated for a lower PSI, but there are some manufacturers who have them available with a maximum PSI of 3300 psi.
When selecting a portable pressure gas washer, you want to be sure that it can handle the amount of pressure you will be placing on it. This will ensure that the washer can clean an entire car or that it can handle the detergent added to the water. There is really no way to tell just by looking at the PSI rating on the machine; you will want to find out what brands and models are rated for the maximum PSI. Once you know the maximum PSI that the machine can handle, you will then be ready to choose the specific brand and model of pressure washing machine that you want.
In addition to the maximum PSI, you will want to pay close attention to the type of fuel that the machine uses. Gas-powered machines tend to be much stronger than electric machines, especially for heavy duty use. Gas-powered machines also tend to use a lot less fuel than an electric machine would, which will save you money. However, if you plan on using your washer frequently and its battery power is going to run down, then it may be better for you to purchase an electric machine. These machines tend to be a little bit more expensive, but they do tend to last longer than gas-powered machines.
Detergents that are used in the washing process can also have an affect on the strength of the pressure washer. Certain detergents will be more powerful than others. It would be a good idea to test different detergents before purchasing one, so that you can get the most out of your washer. You may even want to test each detergent on a hidden spot in your home first to make sure that it won’t harm your family’s skin.
Another thing that affects the pressure of a machine is the kind of detergent that is being used. Detergents that are higher in sodium or calcium will create stronger jets. Higher levels of these detergents have a harder time penetrating the surface of the fabric that they will be cleaning. If you are looking for a high pressure washer that will clean your car or boat thoroughly, then you will probably need a detergent that has a higher level of sodium or calcium.
Some detergents may also have bleaching agents in them that will lift blemishes from stains. While this does increase the cleaning power of the detergent, the actual cleaning action itself may not be as strong. In addition, you should test each detergent on a hidden spot in your home to make sure that it will not damage your skin. You never know how the detergent may react with your skin.
It is important to note that no portable pressure gas washer should ever be left unattended in a moving vehicle. You always want to know where your machine is at all times. If you plan on leaving your machine at a vacation spot or while you are at work, then you should invest in a remote control. This will allow you to control when the machine will clean and when you will have to put it away for cleaning.
