How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The main reason which may cause the pressure washer to leak from the inside is if the cylinder head – either cracked or failed. This is often caused by the pressure washer being stored in an area that can freeze during winter.
Check the connection and o-rings. Try tightening the connector to see if this stops the leaking. If it does not, with the pressure bled off, unscrew the connector and focus on the o-rings. If they are not intact or appear to be damaged, replace the o-rings.
If the machine is pulsing whilst in use, it may be that the accessory you are using has a blockage. Clear by soaking the accessory in warm soapy water and then rinsing out under the tap.
PLEASE NOTE: You should always press the RESET button on the GFCI before using the pressure washer.
One of the most common causes for a washer that leaks from the bottom is a leak in the fill and drain hoses. These hoses can become blocked, kinked, damaged or disconnected, resulting in a leak while your washing machine is in use.
Water leaks can occur if the water hose connection between the washer and the wall is disconnected. The hose can loosen due to the constant vibrations from washing machine cycles. If you suspect your leaking washing machine is the result of a loose hose connection, all you have to do to fix it is tighten the hose.
Any leaking may be fixed by tightening the connectors while the water and pressure washer are turned off and the pressure has been bled by pulling the trigger. Also check the o-rings; grease or replace if damaged.
