We recommend using a replacement hose that can handle the pressure. The durable materials in these hoses will not kink and curl like a simple garden hose. There are four things you`ll need to consider when choosing your replacement hose: Length: This will help you decide how portable you`d like to be with your washer.
Overall, the best size garden hose to use with a pressure washer is 1 ¼ inches because it allows for the strongest water flow without any loss of power.
For example, a garden hose typically has a PSI of 100-500, while a pressure washer can have a PSI of up to 6000. The higher the water pressure, the more likely it is that your garden hose will burst. That`s why it`s important to only use a high-pressure, high-quality garden hose.
The pressure washer itself has one connection for a standard garden hose to bring water to the pump and another connection that connects the pump to a high-pressure hose that has the spray wand on the end of it.
The outer diameter is 22mm, the inner diameter is 14mm and the inner plug on the female M22 side is 14mm. The female side has the o-ring to prevent leaking.

The 100-foot jetter hose is compatible with gas and electric pressure washers rated at 1000-3600 PSI.it is also very easy to use. Simply connect the M22 threaded end to your trusted spray gun and you are ready to tackle any cleaning task.
3/8-inch is the thickest diameter hose you`ll see around. It`s for pro machines because of the high volume flow requirement. 5/16-inch is not used as much as the other 2. The thing is light and medium-duty units use 1/4-inch hose and then the heavy-duty units jump to the 3/8-inch hose.
Standard garden hoses typically have a PSI rating between 40 to 60 PSI. However, this can vary based on the water source and the type of nozzle used.
Assuming a best-case scenario – working on flat ground and normal operating conditions – you typically won`t lose much pressure as you increase the length of hose that you use. For instance, on a 3/8-inch hose with a 3 gallon/minute flow, the loss of pressure per 100 feet is about 50 PSI.
Heavy Duty and Commercial: Heavy-duty pressure washers start at 2800 PSI at 2 GPM or more. Commercial-grade pressure washers start at 3100 PSI and can have GPM ratings as high as 4.

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
Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose. There is a little metal finger thing that you can tell pushes up into place when the water pressure is high. It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut. It was just free floating in there. I’m thinking it may go over the finger mechanism. I just put it back on top of the finger, like a halo and put the screw in piece back in. Anyway, if you know, let me know how all that goes together.
I fixed mine works good too, watch my video step by step i put it on youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXSLOBL0Mg
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.
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
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.
This pressure washer will continue to build pressure when you let off the trigger. I have replaced the hose 3 times because the pump continues to pump until it blows the hose. The pump will not stop pumping!
You have a defective pressure release valve or someone has misadjusted.
I have used the McCulloch (FH180A) three times over the course of two years. On my fourth use the pressure washer just surged on and off and I would get a tiny spray from the gun each time it surged. In other words it would do nothing. Please help… very frustrated. Thanks
Sounds like the problem could be low input water flow or pressure. There could be crud on the intake where you hook up the garden hose, there could be some other sort of blockage. Try hooking it up to the hose and pull the trigger (with the power switched off) and wait to see if water comes out the tip. Also look at the tip(s) themselves. sometimes a piece of crud gets into the hose and then clogs the tip.
Kranzle electric washer will not suck up soap
Hi, if it has a chemical injector on the machine then the pressure at the lance will have to be lowered for it to pull in soap. it works on a similar principle to how carburetors on cars pull in fuel, bernouli principle. high pressure at one side of an orifice going to low pressure at the other side which causes a negative pressure ( vacuum) which should pull in the soap. there should be a non return valve at the orifice (hole) which prevents the water back feeding into the soap container, it is quite common for this valve to get stuck, it is just a ball, spring and o ring , and the ball sticks to the o ring. if it is this system then take the soap pick up pipe off the injector and just push the ball off it’s seat with a bit of wire.If it is a high pressure soap system then that is different, but they usually work with an injector in my experience.try taking the high pressure hose off the front off the machine and running it, if it has an injector on it it should pull in plenty off soap.hope this helps ,andy
