The High Flow Natural Gas Pressure Washer You’ve Been Looking for Is Here

The High Flow Natural Gas Pressure Washer You’ve Been Looking for Is Here

At Hydro Tek, we pride ourselves on providing the highest possible quality of products to our clients. Part of that service means offering a wide selection of products. While we’ve met this high goal for ourselves, we’re happy to announce that today you can purchase a high flow natural gas pressure washer. Read on to learn more about how you can special order this model and then reach out to us at 800-274-9376 for more information.

We are responding to requests from our customers

It may be true that a high flow natural gas pressure washer is not the most in demand pressure washer on the market. In fact, that’s why we haven’t always carried it. That said, we’ve had requests from customers and we listen to those requests. When we heard repeatedly that you wanted a high flow, natural gas stationary water pressure, we decided to act on it.

We know this isn’t a model that everyone wants. That’s why we’ve added an option to special order it. We’ve priced it as attractively as we can and think you’ll appreciate the national pressure washer sales that can make it even more affordable. We spoke with several distributors to find out what attachments would be best for this model. Based on their feedback, this model includes two guns and two hoses standard. We believe this is the best option based on the lower standard heat rise of this model compared to others.

What to expect from these pressure washers

If you’re using a single active gun, then you can expect your water to reach 200 degrees. If you activate the second gun, then the temperature rise is going to reduce to 80 degrees higher than whatever your incoming water temp is. These are maximum temperatures but if you need your temps a little lower, just adjust the thermostat down to where you need it.

We use an eight-spiral coil that’s machined to reduce the possible water restriction of the half coil pipe. This gives you all the pressure you want and need – plus the reliability you have come to expect from Hydro Tek. The new model numbers on these are HN30008E3G and HN30008E4G.

At Hydro Tek, we don’t just want to be the company that you come to for one or two power washing needs. We are your one-stop shop.

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions About Pressure Washers

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions About Pressure Washers

At Hydro Tek, pressure washers are our business. We know them inside and out and can answer any and all of your questions. If you want to know which pressure washer is right for your needs, feel free to reach out to us at 800-274-9376 . You can also read on to get general answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about pressure washers.

Do we need a hot water pressure washer or cold water pressure washer?

Without question, this is the most common question about pressure washers. There are many factors to consider when making your final decision, but it often comes down to whether or not you’ll need to clean surfaces that have grease or oil. If you plan to do so, then you’ll want a hot water pressure washer. If you’re going to be cleaning mud or caked-on dirt, then a cold water pressure washer is likely to do the job for you.

Do I need to focus on GPM or PSI?

Once again, it depends on what you plan to use the pressure washer for. If you’re going to be regularly cleaning up heavily soiled areas, then GPM (which means gallons per minute) is likely to be your priority. On the other hand, if you’ve got grime that’s stubbornly stuck, then PSI (which means pounds per square inch of pressure) is likely the most important.

Really the bottom line is that volume is the most important thing. When you get a quality pressure washing system, it should balance pressure and volume. If you need more information about your options and advice on which one’s best for you, reach out to Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 .

What applications are stationary pressure washers best for?

There are many reasons that our clients end up choosing a stationary pressure cleaning system that’s permanently installed. For one, it’s often the best value compared to a portable model. In many cases, it will cost the same as a portable machine – or even less. If you have access to natural gas, a stationary pressure washer can run on that. It’s a much more cost-effective fuel than other options, plus you don’t need to refuel the burner system.

A permanently installed hot water pressure washer can be located in any room or shed that has piping or a hose to the wash area. This protects it from damage, weather issues, and even accidental operator abuse. Finally, a stationary system can be mounted right onto an equipment stand. This allows the totes or detergent barrels to be stored underneath, which minimizes the amount of space the pressure washing system takes up.

There are a wealth of options out there and Hydro Tek has them all. Contact us at 800-274-9376 to get answers to your frequently asked questions and find out what your options are. We are happy to walk you through the choices, available accessories, and much more so that you know exactly which choice is right for you.

The Truth About Pressure Washer Accessories: Are They Really Necessary?

The Truth About Pressure Washer Accessories: Are They Really Necessary?

After a company purchases a pressure washer, do they really need pressure washer accessories? Will the pressure washer itself be enough or are there extra products needed? At Hydro Tek, our systems are designed to be used immediately. That said, there are some pressure washing accessories that could be helpful, depending on the specific application a person plans for their pressure washer.

Pressure washer accessories are affordable and can have a big impact

Before we get into the available pressure washer accessories, it’s important to put these options into perspective. Essentially, the typically come at a relatively minor cost yet they can make a huge difference in how quickly you can clean. In some cases they can even make it more affordable to use your pressure washer, and can save wear and tear on your machine. Either option can make accessories worth the money they cost.

The Hydro Twister helps reduce the amount of detergent you use

Depending on what’s being cleaned and how often it’s cleaned, pressure washing detergent can get expensive. With the Hydro Twister, you can clean flat surfaces without pretreating them with soap. This rotary surface cleaner can attach directly to your pressure washer, which allows you to more consistently clean compared to using a wand. Not to mention it lowers operator fatigue, can be used on either hot or cold water, and can clean a space as much as twenty times faster compared to a hand wand.

Specialized accessories can help clean roofs

If you intend to use a water pressure washer to clean roofs, then our roof washer is a must-have. It attaches to a hot or cold pressure washer and easily removes dirt, algae, and mildew from roofs. It’s made from stainless steel that’s resistant to rust and includes an aluminum spray bar. We’ve constructed it to be long-lasting, even when used regularly in a corrosive environment. You can also adjust the wheel height and width without tools, which makes it easy to use on any type of roof.

Quickly store your tools with a hose reel

You can mount the hose reels from Hydro Tek to just about anything. They’re a quick, convenient way to storage inlet hoses or discharge hoses on a pressure washer. Our hose reels can be swiveled up to 180 degrees, which allows them to be unrolled from any direction. When it’s time to travel, just reel the hose on to the drum with a handle we provide. Then set the lock pin and it’s ready to take on the road!

The Eternal Question: Is a Cold Water or Hot Water Pressure Washer the Right Choice?

The Eternal Question: Is a Cold Water or Hot Water Pressure Washer the Right Choice?

Any company that sells pressure washer knows that one of the most commonly asked questions by clients is whether they should choose a hot water pressure washer or a cold water pressure washer. The answer can in some situations it’s easy to choose one over the other but that isn’t always true. Read on for advice from the pros and then reach out to Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 with additional questions.

Many aspects are the same

Cold and hot water pressure washers have quite a few things in common, which is one of the reasons people sometimes have trouble deciding between them. for example, they have models with identical flow rates, identical pressures, and identical capabilities of cleaning either outside or indoors. With these factors relatively identical, there must be some other factors taken into consideration to choose.

The three key elements to hot water pressure heaters

Hot water pressure washers are much better at cleaning grease, thanks to the three elements that propel it: Heat, soap, and agitation. Heat creates a molecular action that’s very fast and that helps the cleaning agent work much better. It also lowers the surface tension of water, which further allows for penetration of grime right down to the molecular level.

The agitation comes from the water volume and pressure. Think of this is the force of your hand scrubbing a bowl in your sink. Finally, there’s the soap, which is typically called detergent when used in pressure washers. Its chemicals work to break down the bond that’s formed between the surface of what’s being cleaned and the dirt, grease and grime that’s clinging to it.

The bottom line: Hot water works best on some things and cold water is better on others

If you’re cleaning something that has a lot of oil or grease then you’re going to want a hot water option. This would include engines, auto parts, etc. Once again, think about cleaning your own dishes in the sink. Do you want to clean a greasy pan with cold water? No – because the heat essentially melts the grease while cold water just pushes it around.

Cold water pressure washers work just fine on things like sand or caked on mud, or even if you’re trying to strip paint. When you combine it with a high quality soap (or detergent) then a cold water unit can be quite effective. However, anything that a cold water pressure washer is capable of cleaning is going to be cleaned faster and better by hot water.

Why wouldn’t everyone choose a hot water heater?

You may be wondering why everyone wouldn’t choose a hot water heater. After all, it supposedly works better – right? Yes, it does – but it also costs more. In some cases (depending on the model) it will cost more to buy a hot water unit but it will always cost more to use hot water than cold water.

These Two Questions May Be All a Person Needs to Select a Pressure Washer

These Two Questions May Be All a Person Needs to Select a Pressure Washer

For many of your clients, they may have a hard time figuring out which pressure washer they want. They may go back and forth and come into your shop several times before making up their minds. While there are obviously enormous differences between options and you do want your clients to choose the one that works best for them, you also want them to make a sale.

Following are the two questions that can be all a person needs to answer to decide which pressure washer will work best for their needs. Read on to learn more and then reach out to Hydro Tek online or by calling 800-274-9376 .

The two questions

First, a person needs to ask themselves if they’re going to need a pressure washer that has wheels so that it can be moved around easily. Or are they planning to primarily use it for items that can be moved to the pressure washer?

The second question is: Will they be using it on a job site? If so, they’re likely to need a gas pressure washer. On the other hand, if you’re not going to use it on job sites but in another application, then they need to ask themselves if they think they’ll have easy enough access to electricity to use an electric model.

Compare electric and gas pressure washers

If a person is cleaning indoors and using an electric pressure washer then they’re going to be limited to using it near a source of electricity. Many people assume this means an electric pressure washer isn’t ideal if it’s going to be used outside, but again this depends on where it’s going to be used. If it will be near an electric outlet, then an electrical option may be fine.

Water must be considered

The vast majority of pressure washers get water from a garden host or a spigot. However, others are designed to pull water from large tanks. These are better options if on-site cleaning will be done because the unit can be used at sites that don’t have water.

Consider how often you’ll use it to decide on the quality of washer you need

Your clients will need to think about how often they think they’ll use the hot or cold water pressure washer in an average week. Those who think they’ll be using it for fewer than 20 hours a week may choose a mid-range model that offers bare-bones design but has a direct-drive pump.

For companies that are going to use a pressure washer more than 20 hours a week, a top quality unit is necessary. The good news of course is that Hydro Tek offers exceptionally high quality units at competitive prices.

4 Reasons the Hydro Tek Spiralast Coil is the Best in the Business

4 Reasons the Hydro Tek Spiralast Coil is the Best in the Business

Hydro Tek is proud of the fact that our Spiralast heating coil is made right in our certified manufacturing facility. We follow ISO 9001 standards and control every step of the creation of each of our coils. From the quality of the material, to the exacting process we use to make it, to the incredible completed product, we believe this is the best heating coil in the business. For five years now we’ve been creating the best heating coil on the market.

  1. The performance is second to none
  2. There are likely a number of factors you’ll consider when choosing a hot water pressure washer, but the most important is likely to be performance. That’s why we start off with this – the performance of our Spiralast Coil is incredible. When a typical pipe is bent in a tight radius, the pipe is actually stretched, which lower the thickness of the wall. The result is that a weak point is created and the inside diameter of the pipe shrinks – all of which helps restricts flow.

    On the other hand, our Spiralast coil is made with a unique cold-rolled process. As a result, its bend radius is much higher – which leads to a coil that’s stronger and that has lower flow restrictions.

  3. Higher efficiency is helpful in numerous ways
  4. The spiral design of our heating coil means that it’s much more efficient. This is great for a number of reasons, including the fact that it results in less pollution – not to mention less fuel consumption. That’s right, it keeps costs and pollutants down.

  5. Our manufacturing process is incredibly precise
  6. The specific, proprietary method in which we manufacture this heating coil is done using robotic welding. This allows us to be incredibly precise when welding. It totally eliminates joints as a weak point, which builds a strong, sturdier, and more reliable heating coil.

  7. We guarantee our heating coil for the life of your pressure washer
  8. We are proud to offer our distributors the opportunity to put their customer’s minds at ease by offering them a lifetime warranty on their Spiralast Coil heating element. That’s right – if the heater coil leaks under any typical conditions then we will replace the coil at no charge to the customer at all.

This doesn’t apply to all Hydro Tek machines but it does apply to all of them all the way up to 4300psi (300 bar). Of course, this lifetime warranty doesn’t apply if the coil is damaged as a result of being left in freezing conditions or if the customer has altered or misused the equipment. That said, this lifetime warranty is valid for machines built after February of 2014.

The Spiralast Coil is just one part of our hot water pressure washers. Now that you’ve seen the incredible care we put into this single part, you can imagine the quality of our pressure washers overall. Learn more by calling us at 800-274-9376 today.

The Incredible Features of Our Completely Self Contained Gas Powered Vacuum Recovery System

The Incredible Features of Our Completely Self Contained Gas Powered Vacuum Recovery SystemYour pressure washing equipment creates waste – there’s no way around it – but you can get yourself in control of where that waste goes. This can be essential if you regularly clean up oil or work with toxic chemicals you don’t want released into the environment. The good news is that Hydro Tek offers the industrial vacuums you need.

Our equipment is capable of vacuuming up water and pumping it straight to your sewer, bulk tank, landscape – or wherever you like. Never deal with wasting time or big delays in your cleanup process. Read on to read more about one of our newest options, the completely self-contained gas powered vacuum recovery system, and then contact us at 800-274-9376 for more information.

The perfect choice for facilities that need to collect wash water or pick up after a fire or flood

There are a long list of situations in which this system is the perfect solution, from crews cleaning up after fires or floods, to maintenance crews that have to collect wash water. Our polyethylene separation tanks are uniquely non-corrosive. We’ve made sure that they weigh a lot less than your typical 50-gallon steel drum, and we make it easy for you to quickly and easily get inside via a quick lift-off lid. This makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze.

The valve is oversized for ease of use

Our large 1 ½ inch valve is perfect for getting rid of solids and sludge that settles at the bottom of your vacuum. Each of the two separation tanks has a transfer system that automatically pumps water out to wherever you need it to – whether a sanitary sewer, bulk tank, landscape, or wherever it’s permitted. You don’t have to deal with heavy tipping to dump it into your own tanks.

The long list of features will impress you

At Hydro Tek, we know this business inside and out and we know what our clients need. That’s why we’ve created this 100% self-contained unit that doesn’t need a generator or even a 110v plug for the transfer pumps. Instead, you can hook up your transfer pumps directly to an on-board 12v battery. We have truly thought of everything to make this system as useful as possible for you.

We also know that you want total control of air flow when you’re using different pickup devices, or when you have different hose lengths. That’s why we’ve given this unit an air throttle valve right on the vacuum tank. There are also quick-plug connectors for high water shutdown and for transfer pumps. You can use with either one or two pickup devices, and recovery is up to 25gpm with a total hose length of 350 feet.

We also know that you don’t want space taken up unnecessarily, which is why this system has such a small footprint with both the fuel tank and the battery box integrated right into the frame. There’s a lift-out strainer basket that makes it easy to get rid of large pieces of debris before you empty the rest into separation tanks.

What’s more, you can actually vacuum and pump out at the same time – and automatically. That’s right, you won’t lose suction or lose time dumping tanks. If this all sounds too good to be true then we recommend you reach out to Hydro Tek right away at 800-274-9376 .
