Choosing your pressure washer can be a little confusing: this guide is designed to remove some of the mystery involved when you are trying to pick out the one you need.
A pressure washer, or a high pressure cleaner, draws water from a hosepipe, pumps it up to a high pressure and then releases it through a small gap in the nozzle. At higher pressure the water can force dirt and grime away that would otherwise be diffi cult to move. Because the water is at pressure, it doesn’t take much water to complete the job, using just over 300 litres per hour, compared to a running tap or hosepipe that can use 1200 litres per hour.
At B&Q we have segmented our range of pressure washers into four categories, to help you identify what type of user you are. The type of use refers to jobs and cleaning that can be done with each, although not exclusive, the table below details the suitability of each type of washer for a task.
