Once again it's that time of year to get your pressure washer prepared for the cold months ahead. Proper winterization will protect your pump from the freezing of excess water in the pump over the winter. There are many ways to winterize your pump; we like to classify it as the good, better and best.<br />
Good: (Gasoline powered) Leaving your machine in the off position with the high pressure hose disconnected pull the recoil rope 4 to 5 times or until you don't see any more water coming out of the high pressure end of the pump. (Electric powered) Disconnect your high pressure hose, turn the machine on for 5 to 10 seconds or until you don't see any more water coming from the high pressure end of the pump.<br />
Better: If you have a air compressor around the house, hook the air line to the garden hose end of the pump and blow the water out until you don't see any more water coming out of the high pressure end of the pump.<br />
Best: Purchase Karcher's Pump Guard, follow the simple directions that come with the product. This product is specially formulated to keep your pump from freezing, corrosion, premature wear, adds lubricant to the valves and seals to prevent sticking in the spring. You can usually get 2 or 3 uses from one bottle of Karcher's Pump Guard. <br />

not a new gun but the nozzle removed and cleaned out. Pressure units work through a regulator that is controlled by the flow through the nozzle. If there is insufficient flow the regulator unloads the pump. It the flow is too low the regulator opens and closes as the pressure fluctuates. removing the blockage allows full flow and full operation of the regulator.
THIS POWER WASHERS ARE TRICKY, TO OPERATED YOU NEED TO OPEN THE WATER FAUCET CONECTED BY A HOSE TO THE POWER WASHER , OPEN THE TRIGGER AND THEN START THE POWER WASHER, OTHER WISE YOU WILL RUIN THE POWER WASHER PUMP.
