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.
There could be small leaks, holes, or tears in your garden hose or high-pressure hose that are causing your pressure washer to lose pressure when you pull the trigger. If you find leaks, plug the holes or replace the hose, which should solve your pressure issues.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: You should always press the RESET button on the GFCI before using the pressure washer.
The number one cause of low or no pressure when using a pressure washer is a blocked or worn nozzle. Blocked nozzles will prevent water from escaping, while a worn nozzle will allow too much water to pass through, causing the pressure to drop.
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.
A pressure washer requires water to cool and lubricate the pump, which is the part responsible for pushing water from the supply hose to the nozzle. Without water to cool and lubricate it, the pump will work harder than it should, causing it to wear down quickly.

MY PUMP DELIVERS HARDLY ANY PRESSURE. I CLEENED THE SCREEN BUT IT IS THE SAME. SEEMS LIKE I CANNOT BUILD PRESSURE. HELP
ANSWER : There is a valve on the water pump called an unloader valve, when this valve sticks open it will not allow the pressure to build. This valve is designed to recirculate the water when you release the trigger so you don’t damage the pump. Go to jackssmall engine repair.com and type in the model # of your unit and it will give you a parts breakdown so you can see where the unloader vale is located or if you have the manual for your unit look in that. Remove and clean. If this doesn’t work you may have to replace it.
