7 of the most frequently asked questions about pressure washing

We’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about pressure washing systems to help new users (and some experienced ones) get to grips.

If you have a burning question that hasn’t been mentioned below then feel free to contact us here at Triace. We’ve been manufacturing power washers for over 30 years and know all there is to know!

What chemicals can I use? – You should only use pressure-washer-approved chemicals in your machine. Most are environmentally friendly and will help ensure the lifespan of your pressure washer.

Can I use bleach in my pressure washer – Using bleach in your system can quickly damage the o-rings and seals in the wand, hose, pump and gun. Avoid using household bleach at all costs!

How long can the hose be extended? – We offer a variety of extensions, the details of which can be found here. We offer a 20m hose reel and extendable lances that reach up to 7.3 metres.

How are nozzles cleaned? – A clogged nozzle can drastically increase the pump pressure and can eventually damage the pump. To clean them you should clear the nozzle with a small piece of wire and flush the nozzle backwards with some water.

If it won’t unblock then look into buying a new nozzle.

Where should I store my washer pressure? – It’s best to store the pressure washer in a dry place that’s well ventilated. If you’re keeping it in a shed then make sure that the water won’t freeze and if kept in the house that all the gasoline is emptied.

Why does water come out of the pump? – If you leave the engine running for a few minutes without spraying the wand the system will automatically purge water. This is to protect it against overheating and is called the thermal relief system.

Which pressure washer do I need? – We’ve covered this question here. It all depends on your requirements, commercial hot water pressures for example are the top of the range and can stand up to regular use.
