Operating Instructions
Read the ENTIRE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION section at the beginning of this
manual including all text under subheadings therein before set up or use of this product.
Safety
Work Piece and Work Area Set Up
1. Designate a work area that is clean and well‑lit.
The work area must not allow access by children
or pets to prevent distraction and injury.
Setup
Operation
2. CHECK THE WATER SUPPLY. Prior to using the
Pressure Washer for the first time, it is ESSENTIAL
to verify that the water supply is adequate.
The Pressure Washer needs TWICE the water
supply (or volume) than the listed water output (1.3
GPM). This Pressure Washer will need about 2.6-3
GPM to operate correctly and efficiently. If the water
is being supplied by a well/pump, make certain that
the well/pump produces enough water to keep up
with the Pressure Washer’s water demands. Water
supply hoses should be heavy duty to withstand the
forces involved. Water hoses up to 25' long must
be 5/8" ID. Water hoses up to 50' long must be 3/4"
ID. Do not use hoses longer than 50'. The more
minerals in the water (the harder the water) you
use, the more often mineral buildup will need to be
cleaned out from the nozzles. The flow rate of the
water supply must never be allowed to fall below 2.6
GPM.
To determine the water supply’s flow rate: Run the
water at full for one minute into a 5 gallon container,
and measure the amount of water in the container.
CAUTION! If the Pressure Washer is run
with an inadequate water supply, the pump
will cavitate. Cavitation causes the pump
to operate loudly and will damage it.
3. ARRANGE FOR A PROPER ELECTRICAL SUPPLY.
This unit uses a large amount of current, especially
during start-up. Turn off power switch, then connect
this unit only to a dedicated household circuit
capable of providing ample current to it. A dedicated
circuit has no additional loads (running devices)
connected to it; shut off any appliances that slow
down or lights that dim while the washer is running.
For best results, connect the plug to that circuit’s
outlet that is nearest to the circuit breaker panel.
4. PLAN OUT THE JOB: Plan out what areas will be
cleaned, how many sessions will be necessary,
and how long the individual sessions of work will
need to be. Plan to clean the higher portions
first, because the higher portions will typically
remain cleaner while the other areas are cleaned.
Plan a safe direction for runoff to flow while the job
is being performed, and plan on working your way
in that direction. You will have a clearer idea of the
time involved to clean the area after doing a test run.
5. Clear the cleaning area of all objects that
are not being cleaned. If any water prone or
delicate items cannot be moved, protect them.
If detergent is to be used, cover or remove any
plants or animals that may be damaged by the
detergent. Disconnect power to and protect any
nearby electrical wiring from water and spray.
6. Place the Pressure Washer in a location which is
protected from any water from the cleaning area.
Select a location higher than the cleaning area.
The pressure washer’s location should be
close enough so that the hose will reach
every portion of the job to be done with some
slack for movement. Also, select an area
with proper access to a dedicated circuit.
7. Route the power cord along a safe route
to reach the work area without creating a
tripping hazard or exposing the power cord
to possible damage. The power cord must
reach the work area with enough extra length
to allow free movement while working.

Operating Tips
Become Familiar With your Machine:
For a vertical or sloped surface:
1. Before beginning work, set aside enough time to
familiarize yourself with this machine’s cleaning
rate and capacity along with all instructions
and precautions contained in this section,
along with the Operating Instruction and
Controls and Features sections.
b. If possible, direct the stream in the same
direction as the slope towards a draining area.
This will enable better drainage and
therefore better cleaning.
WIDE STREAM =
QUICKER COVERAGE BUT
LIGHTER CLEANING.
NARROW STREAM =
DEEPER CLEANING BUT
SLOWER COVERAGE.
Cleaning Recommendations
5. Clean an inconspicuous test area first. Always
begin with the fan spray at a distance of about
3-5 feet from the surface being cleaned to avoid
damaging it. Clear the test area of people and
water-sensitive objects. If a pressure washing
detergent is to be used, apply the detergent
to this area as well. After cleaning this area,
switch off the pressure washer and inspect the
area carefully for any damage or discoloration.
If any damage is noted from the pressure setting,
use a lighter setting when cleaning the rest of
the area. If damage or discoloration is noted
from the detergent, do not use it when cleaning.
6. First, pass over the area with a light cleaning,
and then more thoroughly clean it.
Item 69488
Safety
b. After the major cleaning is done, sweep
the surface with the stream to help direct
loose debris toward the drainage.
7. If detergent is to be applied: Only use pressure
washing detergent in the soap dispenser; other
detergents will clog the dispenser. Do not add
detergent to the body of the pressure washer.
Spray the surface with detergent until evenly
covered, then turn off the machine and water
source, release pressure, and remove the soap
dispenser. Allow the detergent several minutes to
sit and soak into the work surface; this will improve
cleaning efficiency. Turn on the water source and
power, and rinse off all detergent completely.
8. Hold the Spray Gun at about a 45° angle and
steadily sweep the stream back and forth; if a
severe, head-on angle is used, dirt may imbed in the
surface being cleaned. Follow a steady, consistent
pace during cleaning; this will help prevent
stripes or discoloration afterwards. If streaking or
uneven cleaning is noted at the end of a project,
go over the edges of the streaks with a wide fan
pattern to help blend these lighter areas in.
9. If several different surfaces are to be cleaned,
be careful not to damage any of the less solid
surfaces while trying to clean the harder ones.
This is especially a concern when cleaning tile and
grout, bricks and mortar, or stones and mortar.
10. If wood is being cleaned, be careful to
avoid damage. Wood will usually require
resurfacing (sanding) and re-coat with a surface
protectant (wood, stain, varnish) after it has
dried. Try to avoid leaving water on a wooden
surface; doing so can harm the surface.
For technical questions, please call 1-888-866-5797.

Setup
4. This unit has several settings and
adjustments that effect the speed of cleaning
and the water force applied to cleaning.
Good guidelines to keep in mind are:
a. If a thin layer of water accumulates on
the surface, periodically use the stream to
direct this water towards the drainage.
Operation
3. Clean a test area to satisfaction before
proceeding with the entire area, as stated
in Cleaning Recommendations.

Safety
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY FROM ACCIDENTAL OPERATION:
Turn the Power Switch of the tool off, unplug the tool from its electrical outlet,
shut off the water supply and safely discharge all residual water pressure from
the unit before performing any inspection, maintenance, or cleaning procedures.
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY FROM TOOL FAILURE:
Do not use damaged equipment. If abnormal noise or vibration
occurs, have the problem corrected before further use.
Cleaning, Maintenance, and Lubrication
Setup
Operation
1. Before each use, inspect the general condition
of the Pressure Washer. Check for loose screws,
misalignment or binding of moving parts, damaged
electrical wiring, damaged High Pressure Hose,
damaged accessories, and any other condition that
may affect its safe operation. If abnormal noise or
vibration occurs, have the problem corrected before
further use. Do not use damaged equipment.
3. In areas that have hard water
(water rich in minerals such as calcium) the unit
will need to be cleaned periodically to remove
calcium buildup which can clog the system.
To clean off calcium buildup: Unplug the unit
and lay it face down. Fill the body at the water inlet
fitting with calcium remover and allow at least 5 hrs.
for calcium deposit to break down. Rinse and dry.
2. To clean, remove excess water from the Pump by
tipping the unit to drain any remaining water from
the inlet and outlet fittings. Drain the Detergent
Dispenser and flush with running water. Use only a
clean cloth and mild detergent to clean the body of
the Pressure Washer. Do not use solvents.
Do not immerse any part of the tool in liquid.
Dry off any remaining water on all parts and fittings.
Remove mineral deposits from the nozzle using
a thin, stiff wire brush. The more minerals that
are dissolved in the water (the harder the water)
you use, the more often mineral buildup will
need to be cleaned out from inside nozzle.
4. STORAGE: When storing,
empty the Pressure Washer of water.
Frost will damage the Pressure Washer if the
unit contains water. Store the Pressure Washer
in a dry, frost‑free room. Flush the unit with
