Have the right model and accessories for the job
When working with pressure washers, it’s really important to have the right model and accessories for the job. Too little pressure, and the job will take forever, but too much pressure can cause damage to what you are trying to clean.
Generally, a lower pressure is suitable for tasks like cars, patio furniture and bikes, while higher pressures are needed for concrete paving and other heavy-duty cleaning. It’s a very good idea to think about the most cleaning power you will need and find a pressure washer capable of this.
Know how to measure cleaning power
Pressure washers normally measure their cleaning power using two numbers - the pressure and the flow rate.
The pressure is a measure of the force of the water coming out, which makes up for the ’cutting power’ of the stream to get through tough dirt.
The flow rate is the amount of water that comes from the pressure washer, and gives the ’rinsing’ and washing action.
Putting both together will give you the ’cleaning rate’, or how much you can clean in a given time. A high pressure and a high flow rate mean you can clean large areas quickly. Selecting the right pressure washer for the right job means that you can really cut down the amount of time it takes to do those grubby household jobs.
Many accessories mean many applications

Don't be afraid to share your tool
Sharing your pressure washer can have social benefits too with friends, family and neighbours who might be showing ‘pressure washer envy’. Letting them borrow it for their own benefit may mean they return it with thank you gestures including a bottle of wine, an invite for dinner or other goodies, meaning the pressure washer tends to pay for itself in the end. Everyone’s a winner!
