pressure washer for more than 30 days, follow this
procedure:
1.
2.
3.
CAUTION
Flush chemical injection hose by placing filter into a pail
of clean water while running pressure washer in low
pressure mode (adjustable nozzle in forward position).
Flush for one to two minutes.
You must protect your unit from freezing temperatures.
• Failure to do so will permanently damage your pump and
render your unit inoperable.
• Freeze damage is not covered under warranty.
Shut off engine and let it cool, then remove high
pressure and garden hoses. Disconnect spark plug wire
from spark plug.
CAUTION
Read and follow all cautions and warnings on the
PumpSaver can label.

ABOUT YOUR WARRANTY
We welcome warranty repair and apologize to you for being inconvenienced. Any Authorized Service Dealer may perform warranty repairs. Most
warranty repairs are handled routinely, but sometimes requests for warranty service may not be appropriate. For example, warranty service would not
apply if equipment damage occurred because of misuse, lack of routine maintenance, shipping, handling, warehousing or improper installation.
Similarly, the warranty is void if the manufacturing date or the serial number on the equipment has been removed or the equipment has been altered
or modified. During the warranty period, the Authorized Service Dealer, at its option, will repair or replace any part that, upon examination, is found to
be defective under normal use and service. This warranty will not cover the following repairs and equipment:
•
Normal Wear: Outdoor Power Equipment, like all mechanical devices, needs periodic parts and service to perform well. This warranty does not
cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part or the equipment.
•
Installation and Maintenance: This warranty does not apply to equipment or parts that have been subjected to improper or unauthorized
installation or alteration and modification, misuse, negligence, accident, overloading, overspeeding, improper maintenance, repair or storage so as,
in our judgment, to adversely affect its performance and reliability. This warranty also does not cover normal maintenance such as adjustments,
fuel system cleaning and obstruction (due to chemical, dirt, carbon, lime, etc.).
•
Other Exclusions: This warranty excludes wear items such as quick couplers, oil gauges, belts, o-rings, filters, pump packing, etc., pumps that
have been run without water supplied or damage or malfunctions resulting from accidents, abuse, modifications, alterations, or improper servicing
or freezing or chemical deterioration. Accessory parts such as guns, hoses, wands and nozzles are excluded from the product warranty. This
warranty excludes failures due to acts of God and other force majeure events beyond the manufacturers control. Also excluded is used,
reconditioned, and demonstration equipment; equipment used for prime power in place of utility power and equipment used in life support
applications.
