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 :

You may need to rebuild or replace the pump assembly. If the pump is more than a few years old, and you use the pressure washer fairly often, replace the pump assembly. If the pump is relatively new, and you don`t use the pressure washer often, either rebuild the pump assembly or replace the pump seals.
If the machine is pulsing when on standby, is the garden hose supplying the pressure washer fully uncoiled? 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.
The reason for this is because a build up of water pressure. On the water inlet or coupling the water can cause a pressure build up, popping the garden hose off. The aqua stop is a valve in the end of the garden hose connection that restricts water flow.
The issue is that the machine is losing pressure due to it passing water, dropping the pressure which is causing it to fire back up to pressure again. Usually it is water passing through a worn gun trigger. Hold the gun up and see if water constantly drips out of the lance when it`s firing up constantly.
A dirty inlet or discharge valve is the most common cause of a pulsating pressure washer. Dirt or hard water can get caught up in these little divots. It is important that you clean out these pieces every so often to prevent these kinds of problems.
Often times, a machine producing low pressure will surge, cycle on and off, or continue to run. This typically indicates that the machine is losing pressure somewhere, such as a leak in one of the lines or inside the case of the machine.
Here`s how it works, devices from the Home & Garden range can be repaired in our repair centres. Machines within their warranty period are repaired free of charge subject to our Home & Garden terms and conditions.
This is caused by high pressure within the system forcing the hose off. Often the clips that hold the hoses in place are not strong enough to withstand this pressure. If the hoses pop off you will know immediately as it will affect performance considerably.
Give Your Pressure Washer a Break

No matter how powerful your pressure washer might be, it`s never a good idea to leave your machine running for too long because doing so will increase the risk that it will overheat. Instead, most professionals suggest using a pressure washer in intervals of three to five minutes.

You should check the outlet to make sure it`s working. Then, check if a fuse is blown or a circuit breaker thrown. If those both work, see if the Delay Start button or Control Lock feature has been activated. Sometimes it`s as simple as opening and closing the door to reset the washer.
The most common reason is a problem with the water supply, or a blocked or kinked water supply hose. In this situation, the washing machine will drain for 3 minutes and the power button will be inoperative. In this case, please clean the debris filter and mesh filter.
It may be caused by debris such as dirt, sand, solidified oil and grease, food particles, or foreign objects. Pollutants can block pipes if they back up due to fractures in the water main. Mineral buildup clogs pipes over time and causes the water pressure to go down, as there`s less space for water to travel through.
PLEASE NOTE: You should always press the RESET button on the GFCI before using the pressure washer.

Started washer, heard ‘pop’, water started coming out of bottom
ANSWER : Thats not good. Sounds like the seal blew out. Inside the unit there are seals that seal up the parts where they are bolted together. Also there is the pressure connection that could have blown out as well. To determine which is the problem you will need to dissassemble it.
