About Bowser Pressure Washers
Bowser pressure washers are great for cleaning almost anything outside, and you'll get fast, dramatic results making them fun to use, as long as you operate them properly and follow the safety guidelines.
Great for cleaning your car, driveway, siding around your house or other areas that may need it, a bowser pressure washer usually runs on a diesel, gas or electric engine.
Bowser pressure washers pressurise the water from your garden hose via a pump before forcing it out using a spray wand. This allows them to achieve high pressure results that can tackle even the toughest of cleaning jobs. All pressure washers need a steady, consistent flow of water, and for most homeowners a pressure range of 1,300 to 2,4000 psi (pounds per square inch) is more than adequate.
An electric pressure washer will deliver around 1,300 to 1,400 psi and are a good choice if you need light duty cleaning - for example, washing your car, garage floor or outdoor grill - and are generally a less expensive, quieter and more portable option. This type of washer must always be connected to outlets which have been protected using a ground fault circuit interrupter.
The most common type of pressure washer is powered by diesel or gas, and is able to deliver a much higher water pressure than you'd get from electric versions - up to around 3,000 psi. Because of this, they also require more water (2 to 3 gallons per minute, or gpm) and are better for larger, tougher jobs such as deep cleaning concrete, removing any age stains from wooden decks, and preparing siding for a paint job.
Most pressure washers come with a single, adjustable spray nozzle, although higher pressure ones can include four or five different nozzle tips.
