•
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
RECOMMENDATIONS
Make sure the garden hose is connected to the water
inlet. Check that the high pressure hose is connected
to the spray gun and the pump and start the engine.
Apply the detergent to a dry surface, starting at the
lower portion of the area to be washed and work
upward, using long, even, overlapping strokes. Do not
allow the detergent to dry. This will prevent streaking.
Allow the detergent to soak in between 3-5 minutes
before washing and rinsing. Reapply as needed to
prevent surface from drying.
The warranty of the high pressure washer does not
cover items that have been subjected to operator
abuse or negligence. To receive the full value from the
warranty, the operator must maintain the high pressure
washer as instructed in this manual.
• Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to
properly maintain your high pressure washer.
• All adjustments in the Service and Adjustments section
of this manual should be made at least once each
season.
Note: You cannot adjust the concentration of the
chemical.
