Pressure washer hoses are not universal. They come in different diameters, lengths, and materials. So, choosing just any hose to replace your current hose won`t work. You`ll either end up with a hose that doesn`t match the performance you`ve come to expect, or you won`t be able to connect the hose to your unit at all.
1/2-inch high-pressure hose

Generally not regarded as great products. I don`t think they make stuff themselves, they just brand and sell. Some stuff is probably fine, but it`s really a cheap consumer retail level brand mostly. I do have some of their hard goods, like bucket and cyclone grit guard.
Next, you`re going to need water to use the pressure washer, so connect your garden hose to the input valve. Both gas and electric pressure washers should have a standard connection for a garden hose. Screw the hose onto the connection point.
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.
Once a nozzle is selected, connect the pressure washer to the water supply line with a garden hose. Be sure the hose is connected to your home`s water supply. Connect the hose to the pressure washer`s water inlet. Double-check that all connections are tight.

1750 psi Electric Pressure Washer: My pressure washer is losing pressure and is pulsa…
ANSWER : 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.

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.

Kranzle electric washer will not suck up soap
ANSWER : 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
