WATER SAVING METHOD

IF YOU ARE ON A WATER METER ,YOU WILL KNOW HOW EXPENSIVE IT IS
SO MY TIP IS.
IF YOUR WATER PRESSURE IS QUITE HIGH, WHY NOT PLUMB IN A BALL-A-FIX VALVE IN THE PIPE WORK JUST BEFORE EACH COLD WATER TAP. AND SET IT TO A FLOW THAT SUITES YOU, COST IS ONLY A COUPLE OF POUNDS FOR EACH 15M BALL-FIX-VALVE ,THIS TIP IS ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE KIDS, TIP 2 IS TV OR TUMBLE DRYERS.
ONCE A MONTH, VAC OF AIR INTAKE GRILLS AT BACK OF TV TO STOP OVER HEATING OF ELECTRONICS, RE TUMBLE DRYERS AGAIN WHEN REMOVING FILTERS VAC OUT ALL FLUFF IN RECESSES, AND AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR PULL OUT MACHINE AND,DISCONNECT FROM MAINS REMOVE AS MANY COVERS AS POS. AND VAC OUT FLUFF BUILD UP.

t and p valve leaking and i replace it and pressure pushes out hot water


It sounds like it's doing it's job, by not letting your water heater turn into a missile, or exploding....The "T" in T&P stands for temperature. When it gets too high, the valve will open. The "P" in T&P stands for pressure. When IT gets too high, the valve will open. When they both get too high...you know the rest...The condition can be caused by many factors.
1. The house "pressure reducing valve" is letting in too much pressure. Any more than 80 lbs. is too much. 50 to 75 is good.
2. Hot water expansion in a closed loop system...no "prv" or "water meter" bypass...To fix, you can install a small "expansion tank" above the water heater. It will allow the extra bit of water to go somewhere temporarily, Letting the T&P valve stay closed. Installation is always on the hot outlet side, because high efficiency water heaters use a "check ball" in the factory installed cold water inlet nipple, which also doubles as a dip tube. (lets cold water into the heater at the bottom)
When a gas fired water heater turns on, there is a pretty fast spike in both temp. and press.
3. The gas control valve itself, has a non resetting 190 degree, "high limit" safety shut off feature. IF that were to fail, the control would run away temperature wise, but I have never heard of one failing.

Cleaning solution is not being distributed.I am using the the correct tip. What could the problem be?


Soap enters the water stream when pressure within the system is low enough to cause slight suction and there are no air entering soap injector hose. If the soap injector is clogged with soap/ debris, clean and reinstall hose. Inside soap injector is a spring and check-ball (ball can become stuck). Some injectors are adjustable (try adjusting). Most factory injectors do not adjust and work only under ideal conditions (soap must be thin like water not thick like dishwashing liquid). Consider adding an aftermarket injector that installs between the discharge hose and pump (not expensive).

john deere 3800psi pressure washer will not siphon detergent. the water end does fine but cannot get any soap


The only way the washer will draw soap into the line is with either the black tip installed or with no tip in wand at all.There is a ball and spring inside of the pipe that the siphon hose hooks to so when you use the washer with alot or even a little pressure the ball is forced up and blockes off the soap inlet port.So if you use it with no tip in the inlet port is open cause the ball isnt being forced up by back pressure.I hope this makes sense.

Power Washer has no pressure, any ideas


1. If you have an inlet chemical injection valve make sure that the hose is intact and that the valve is closed.
2. Purge all air from the line by holding the nozzle actuation lever open until all air has been purged. When you connect the water supply hose turn it on before connecting the high pressure hose and let the unit self purge to the pump outlet high pressure hose fitting. Then connect the high pressure hose.
3. You could have a stuck spring and ball inside the high pressure head of the pump. You can tip the unit on its' side and add a substantial amount of WD-40 to the water supply hose fitting in an attempt to free the springs and balls.
4. Try BRIEFLY running the unit without the hose connected to see if there is high pressure water ejected from the high pressure fitting.
5. Inlet water screen at hose connection is clogged (hose screen and rubber) Check screen for debris.
6. The water strainer is clogged. (Almost looks like an LPG regulator just after but in line of the supply hose connection to the pump)

Order of troubleshooting

1, 2, 5, 6, 4, then 3.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Ryobi 3000 psi pressure washer detergent injector


Most detergent injectors work by the venturi system. That is that the detergent is drawn into the stream by the forward flow of the water thru a very narrow port after the water passes thru the pump. This system works best when the pressure at the tip of the wand is low. Trying using a very large tip to draw in and apply the detergent, then remove injector and rinse with high pressure. Not good for the pump but to apply soap reliably under high pressure the soap needs to be injected through the intake of the pump. enjoy
