4 Things You’ll Need to Decide on When Shopping for a Commercial-Grade Pressure Washer

If you are in need of a commercial pressure washer it is essential to choose the best option on the market. However, if you have never purchased a similar product in the past then you may not know what to look for. You can always contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 to learn more about your options. You can also read on to learn about the four things you will need to decide on as you consider your options.

  1. Quality is the most important aspect
  2. The first thing to consider is simple common sense: You want a pressure washer that is of high quality. You also want to ensure that any pressure washer accessories, water recycle systems, trailers, and tank skids are of high quality as well. The best way to ensure this is the case is to work with a company like Hydro Tek that specializes in pressure washers. Our entire reputation rests on the quality of these specific machines. As a result, we do not work with anything but the highest quality equipment.

  3. Deciding on a hot or cold pressure washer
  4. There are two main categories of pressure washers: Hot and cold. If you are looking to clean areas that are dirty and grimy then cold water is likely to work perfectly. However, if you are dealing with an area that is greasy and oily then you will need the grease-cutting capabilities of a hot water pressure washer.

  5. You’ll need to make a choice on the appropriate pounds per square inch (PSI)
  6. As you shop for a pressure washer, the options you can consider will mention PSI. This is a number that helps you instantly see how strong a particular machine is. It stands for pounds per square inch and shows you how much pressure each machine provides. For residential uses, the top choice will run around 2600 PSI. Commercial applications start at around 3000.

  7. Consider the warranty
  8. The fact of the matter is that buying a pressure washer is an investment. At Hydro Tek we are proud to offer the best deals on the highest quality machines. That said, you do not want to end up investing in this sector only to find that, through no fault of your own, there is a problem with the operating system. Just as you would with any purchase of this amount, you should be able to count on a warranty to protect you from such situations.

If you are ready to shop for the best pressure washer for your unique situation then we are ready to work with you. Contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 or send us an email to We are here to answer your questions and help you find the best possible unit for your needs.

  • Advantages of a Hot Water Pressure Washer

    Simply by heating up the water, a hot water pressure washer delivers dramatically improved cleaning power compared to a cold water machine. Hot water pressure washers are especially useful for cleaning sticky, greasy, or oily surfaces, because they will loosen the dirt much faster without the large amounts of soap, detergent, or other cleaning chemicals that must be used with a cold water system.

  • Hot Water Pressure Washer Applications

    A hot water pressure washer is essential for any cleanup job involving a sticky, greasy, or oily mess, as well as for applications where a surface must be sanitized. With a variety of models available, including self-contained mobile units with gas, diesel, or electric power, Hydro Tek hot water pressure washers can go anywhere and clean anything. Some common applications include heavy equipment cleaning, vehicle cleaning, graffiti removal, restaurant hood vent cleaning, and livestock facility cleaning.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

Hydro Tek

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
