Pressure Washer Preservation

Pressure Washer Preservation Posted in Pressure Washers

Often pressure washers are brought to us for repair of pressure problems. We have found that a lot of these problems could be eliminated with a little preventive maintenence.

We recommend the use of a "treatment" during periods of non use. (Non use = storage for a week or longer)This treatment should include unhooking and draining the hoses and wand. It should also include a chemical treatment in the pump. These products help to prevent deposits within the pump, they lubricate the seals and protect the pump from freezing. We sell and recommend the use of one of the following products.

Pump Saver PN 6039 this product comes in an aerosol can. Screw the fitting onto the pump inlet and push the top button until the treatment comes out the pressure hose connection.

Jack's Safety Tips: Before servicing or repairing any power equipment, disconnect the spark plug and battery cables. Remember to wear appropriate safety glasses and gloves to protect against harmful chemicals and debris. View our Disclaimer.
