Online Service School

Online Service School

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:

Session 1 –Electrical: Required Tools, Installation guidelines, delivery checklist, how to use a voltmeter, how to test electrical components, generator testing, SS & SC electrical, following electrical sequence of events. Q&A

Session 2 –Burners: A review of the voltmeter, Burner related components, Calculation of BTU’s and calculation of fuel nozzle size, how to use a nozzle chart, how to use up & use the smoke test tool, electrode adjustment, and review burner sequence of events and troubleshooting. Q&A

Session 3 – Pumps: Review of the voltmeter, testing pump related switches, review pump components, how does the pump work-positive displacement, thermal shock, hydraulic sequence of events, nozzle calculations, testing water/vacuum leaks, discussion of high pressure soap injection vs. downstream soap injection, troubleshoot pressure problems. Q&A

Section 4 – General Troubleshooting: Q&A from previous sessions, review troubleshooting videos: pumps, burners, electrode adjustments, unloader. Review troubleshooting flow charts, generator component replacement, safety recap. Following up with each of our distributors who had service people enrolled was very positive and encouraging. The next online service school session is scheduled for August 14, 19, 21, & 26. Also, look forward to our future courses for re-certification and more advanced classes that will continue
updating you on all our new systems and products.

  • 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.
