SURFACE CLEANER VIDEO

If you need SURFACE CLEANER VIDEO TIPS, you’ve come to the right place!  I use  a Hurricane 4 Gallon Per Minute Pressure Washer, which is a great starter unit.  There are many surface cleaners to choose from, but the one I use is the Whisper Wash Ultra.  This is a sixteen inch deck.  There are many considerations to work through such as size, nozzles, and personal preferences.

FORMULA FOR SIZE CHOICE

Here is the standard industry procedure for calculating surface cleaner size with the pressure washer machine.  For every 4 gallons per minute on your machine, you need 4 inches of surface cleaner size.  So my 4 Gallon Per Minute machine multiplied by four equals a 16 inch surface cleaner.  5 Gallons Per Minute would mean use a 20 inch surface cleaner and so forth.  Of these surface cleaner tips, this is most important remember as you evaluate which model to purchase.  If you’re surface cleaner is elevating off the surface, you are using way too much pressure.  While some suggest weighing it down with a brick or something similar, I take a different approach.  Using too much pressure with a surface cleaner can cause damage to the concrete.

SURFACE CLEANER NOZZLE OPTIONS

Most surface cleaners come with some nozzles included.  2502 is the most common nozzle size.  The 25 indicates the spray pattern and the 02 reflects gallons per minute.  I go over some other important mathematical considerations relating to surface cleaner nozzles.  Be sure and watch the entire video for all the details.  But here is the approach I take when the surface cleaner pressure washer is too high. Basically, I switch out the nozzles and find the one that works most appropriately.  The 2503 was the ideal nozzle for this particular combination.  It’s good to get the nozzle that is the perfect fit for your pressure washer.  But it’s also good to have a couple nozzle options that are right above and right below that threshold.  The surface you are cleaning will also factor into this decision.  Here are some other great helpful videos for professional pressure washing equipment maintenance. I also provide monthly training events here in Houston, Texas.  And if you have a pressure washer that won’t start, check this out.
