No Garden Hose Required
Just fill the bucket with lake water, slip a battery into the base unit, and hose off all the dirt. Be careful with the water you put in the bucket though.
Clogged carburetors or air filters can cause a pressure washer not to start. If your pressure washer won`t start, you can also check for a clogged carburetor or air filter.
To connect the garden hose to the pressure washer, you will need to use an adapter. The most common type of adapter is the brass garden hose swivel adapter. This type of adapter has a male and female end that can be screwed onto the pressure washer and garden hose respectively.
Pressure Washer Nozzles
0 degrees (red nozzle) is the most powerful, concentrated nozzle setting. 15 degrees (yellow nozzle) is used for heavy-duty cleaning. 25 degrees (green nozzle) is used for general cleaning. 40 degrees (white nozzle) is used for vehicles, patio furniture, boats and easily damaged surfaces.
In all cases the first two digits of the nozzle number indicate the spray angle (disperse) in degrees. EXAMPLE: 00 is 0 degree, 15 is 15 degree, 25 is 25 degree and 40 is 40 degree. The last two digits of the nozzle number indicate the orifice size, a standard industry designation.
Electric pressure cookers` high-pressure setting reaches a maximum of 12 to 12.5 psi. This is a lower psi than stovetop pressure cookers, which reach about 15 psi. At 12 psi, the fibers in vegetables and meat break down quickly, allowing foods to be cooked in a short amount of time.

Need help in getting Honda engine on NorthStar pressure washer to run.
Could be low water pressure I have found.Also, I purchased a can of “stuff” at Lowes today which allows you to circulate a liquid substance which lubricates the pressure pump….the pump could be frozen up…I have a rotating nozzle which I bought…and it had frozen up…this stuff works
1750 psi Electric Pressure Washer: My pressure washer is losing pressure and is pulsa…
If the pressure washer is pulsating then that is a sign of check valve failure. You may be able to clean of replace the check valves. Replacing the head is the wrong way to go. This is completely unnecessary. If you can tell me the model number of your pressure washer then I can assist you better in pointing you in the right direction.
I need a owners manual for a pressure wahser GCV 160 from honda
MiTM will have that. See mitm.com Honda makes the motor but not the pressure washer. Honda does have manuals if you need one for that GCV160 motor.
Oil appears to have come out of the oil filler cap. Is this a sign of overfilling the oil, or something else?
Id definitley say its over filled. try checking the dipstick
My Honda pressure washer is leaking out of the thermal relief valve and I am looking for a part,I also do not have the manual. The model number is WGC 3030 and it is 3.0 gpm 9.0HP. The number on the thermal valve is 33120004,where can I find a part?
Does the thermal valve just screw into the pump head, if so what size thread is it? I have 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 in stock.
Honda powwer boss 3000-whenyoupull the handale to spray it kills the engine
Sounds like the unloader (regulator). Try removing the nozzle, the pull the trigger with the engine running. If motor is still running then it could be the Unloader malfunctioning. If you require a new one try a bypass system for the unloader. The bypass will help save the life of the unloader.
What oil do i use in the pump? The oil is milky and needs changing.
Well you can use direct recommended from Ace Hardware see link.
They recommend 250 hours, but i’d change more often, like you said when it’s milky. If it begins to get water in the oil sooner, that indicates your piston to crankcase seal is beginning to leak.
