Are You in the Market for a Commercial Pressure Washer? Consider This Buying Guide

If you are considering buying a professional pressure washer, then you have many things to consider. It is easy to get the advice of an expert by contacting Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 . You can also read on to learn more through our comprehensive buying guide.

The quality of the product is the most important thing

There are many other factors we will cover but at the end of the day, the most important thing is that you choose a pressure washer that is of the best quality. No matter how big it is, how much pressure it gives, or how little it may cost, if you buy a low-quality product you can count on it not lasting for long and for it to provide suboptimal services. Any of the products you find available from Hydro Tek are of the highest quality.

Choose between hot and cold pressure washer

It is common for the first decision to be between a hot or cold pressure washer. If you are going to be cleaning areas with dirt and grime as the primary issues, then a cold pressure washer is likely to be just fine. However, if you are going to be cleaning areas with grease and oil, you are going to need a hot unit.

Understanding PSI measurements

The main measurement you’ll see when shopping for pressure washers is pounds per square inch, most often referred to as PSI. This tells you how much pressure it offers. If you are going to be using a pressure washer for commercial purposes, then the minimum PSI you would want is likely 3000. For normal residential use, the highest you can possibly get is 2600.

You need a warranty

Once you have narrowed down your options, you will need to consider warranty. Of course, any machine that is of high quality is likely to last for years to come but that does not mean that trouble cannot arise. The reality is that there is always the potential for issues and you need to be working with a company that will back up the products they sell. As a result, a warranty is a must have.

Consider price and then make your final decision

You’ll notice that price is the last factor we mention. This does not mean that you should buy the most expensive machine there is but it does mean that you should focus first on finding the equipment that will actually meet your needs. After all, it is better to pay 10% more for something that meets or exceeds your expectations or needs, rather than saving a little and not getting the usage that you need.

If you have questions about how to compare machines or how to make your final choice, contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 . We are standing by to help you find the exact pressure washer that will work best for you.

  • 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.
