Investing in the Right Pressure Washing Accessories Can Help Reduce Cleaning Time While Boosting the Results

You likely spent a lot of time determining the right pressure washer for your needs, and you should spend an equal amount of time finding the right pressure washing accessories. Doing so can help ensure that you spend as little time as possible washing while also getting the surface as clean as possible. If you have additional questions after reading this advice, contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 for help.

Specialty Nozzles Can Have a Big Impact

Not all nozzles are created equal. Different options have different spray patterns and those patterns can affect how wide and strong the spray is. Consider that a 40-degree nozzle offers a flat spray at a 40-degree angle. You can also choose 25-degree, 15-degree, and even 0-degree nozzles. Just be sure that you know how to use the nozzles. For example, a zero-degree option can burrow into wood and damage it.

Then you have variable fan nozzles that allow you to vary the spray anywhere from zero to 40 degrees just by twisting it. This is a great option if you have the need for different nozzles, and can save a lot of time because you will not need to stop and switch out the nozzles. Specialty nozzles can be helpful too, such as rotary nozzles that offer the impact of zero-degree nozzles but give the fan coverage of a 25-degree nozzle.

Enjoy the Speed of a Variable Pressure Wand

Also known as a dual lance, a variable pressure wand allows you to twist the handle to lower and raise the pressure of your spray. If you also attach a chemical injector, the power washer will automatically suction the chemical into the water when you lower the pressure. Instead of having to stop what you are doing, change the pressure, try out a small area to see if it’s right, and potentially change the pressure over and over again, you can simply make adjustments as you go.

This is helpful not just when you are trying to find the right pressure but when you are moving areas that need different levels of pressure. What’s even better, is that the detergent is injected into the water after it leaves the pump – which means that you do not have to worry about the chemicals hurting the seal of your pumps.

Surface Cleaners Can Get Flat Surfaces Clean Much Faster

If you add a surface cleaner to a hot water pressure washer – or even a cold water pressure washer – you can get just about any flat surface dramatically cleaner in less time. This type of surface cleaner is perfect for areas such as garage floors, deck, driveways, patios, tennis courts, and other flat surfaces.

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.
