Originally purchased to clean flaky paint, greasy items (old compressor tank for cnc plasma cutter water table), and also clean silkscreens.


  1. Wet the hose gaskets on both ends. This will help you screw the hose into the pressure washer body and the pressure washer wand.
  2. Screw the hose into the body. Be sure the thread is lined up properly.
  3. Screw the hose into the wand - mind the screw thread.
  4. Put the wand end onto the wand's body. Be sure it is in correctly.
  5. Drag the hose from by the small metals sink outside.
  6. Bring the pressure washer outside as well.
  7. Check that the grit trap is in the hose connector, and screw in the hose.
  8. Make sure the pressure washer is OFF. (the 0 button should be down).
  9. Plug in the pressure washer, and turn on the hose.
  10. Check that there's water going to the pressure washer by pressing the button on the wand. Even without the power being on, water should come out. If not, you need to find out why, as this is the one thing most likely to damage it.
  11. Turn it on and wash.

Only use the proper soap!

Cleaning up:

  1. Turn it off.
  2. Turn off the water and unplug the washer.
  3. Depress the button to remove any extra pressure in the system.
  4. I like to detach the nozzle and pressure hose, then put it somewhere (small metals sink, possibly) to drip dry while cleaning up.
  5. Detach the garden hose, letting it drain away from the building.
  6. Coil the cord and put the pressure washer back in the box.
  7. Put the garden hose away. It should be under the sink where people won't trip.
  8. Put the hose and wand back in the box.
  9. Put the box where you found it (currently in the boiler room).
