Pressure Washers.... Here's the thing about pressure washers, they're fickle. If you have one and only use it a couple times a year, then chances are you're going to have problems. Read on to get the full scoop.
Pressure washers, like most other tools were meant to be used. Unfortunately they don't enjoy being left alone in the garage for nine months out of the year only to be used two or three times in the summer. There are a few very easy solutions to this problem. Use your pressure washer on a more regular basis. When pressure washers brake, you get them fixed. Why get something fixed just to use it once? After using your pressure washer if you know you don't plan on using it any time soon it's best to let the machine run until it's out of fuel, or simply empty the fuel tank. As you know, the ethanol recently added into our fuel supply will eat away at the plastic and rubber parts in your equipment. Also adding a stabilizer such as Star Tron to your fuel will better your chances of risking ethanol damage. To be honest, most people that have a pressure washer would be better off borrowing their neighbors or renting one if you don't plan on using it often. If you do have a pressure washer please, please, please bring it in for regular servicing if you plan on getting your money's worth out of that machine.
