As we begin to leave the summer behind, we know that a lot of you out there are getting your outdoor spaces ready for fall and winter. This is a great time of year to take advantage of cooler days to finish up all of the outdoor projects that just somehow never seemed to get done during the sweltering heat of July and August.
Cleaning up outdoor spaces can require a couple of tools to get the job done, and one of the most commonly used pieces of cleaning equipment is the pressure washer. Whether you are cleaning pollen off a deck or getting rid of loose paint, a pressure washer can help make outdoor space clean up easier.
Although it may not be the first part of the pressure washer you think of, the pressure washer hose is essential to the proper function of the equipment. Pressure washer hoses must be able to handle the high pressure of the cleaning solution, and so the resistance of the hose is correlated to its quality.
Pressure washer hoses typically fall into two categories: wire-braided high-pressure hoses and non-marking pressure hoses. Wire-braided high-pressure hoses are constructed with inner wire braiding which gives them a high tensile strength and makes them non-corrosive. Non-marking pressure hoses, on the other hand, are designed to be used on any surface without leaving a mark. Which hose is right for you will depend on your application, needs, and pressure washer.
Some things to remember when choosing your pressure washer hose and accessories are the following:
- Quick disconnect couplings – these allow quick and easy break down and setup
- Pressure washer tips – these allow you to control the spray width and pressure of the solution
- Spray wand – make sure to have the correct length of the spray wand according to your height to avoid any undo injuries
- Spray gun – enables you to control the flow and it has a locking device to prevent accidental spray injuries
