This past quarter Hydro Tek held its first online service school.It was a success and appears to be the way we’ll continue in the future.
This webinar, developed more for the beginner and novice, teaches valuable skills required for pressure washer maintenance and repair. Also it’s an excellent refresher course for the skilled service/repair person.
The live class offers participants interaction with the presenters, Sam Jackson and Greg Cross, either by verbally asking the questions or typing the questions in the chat area. The webinars offer the same in-depth training offered in all the previous service schools held at the factory. Covered are electrical, burner systems, pumps, trouble shooting, diagnosis and repair of various mechanical and electrical problems.
The course is split into 4) two hour sessions:
