is using an appliance with faulty insulation
and, at the same time, is in contact with an
electrical ground such as a plumbing fixture,
wet floor, or earth.
FCI plugs do not protect against short circuits,
overloads, or shocks.
To test:
* Depress the TEST button. This should cause
the RESET button to pop out.
* То restore power, depress the RESET button.
À WARNING!
* Plug into receptacle
« If light is not on, press reset button - light
should come on
* Press test button - light must go off
* Press reset button again for use
Do not use if test fails.

NOZZLE APPLICATION
Red - Stream nozzie (0* )
| * The Red 0 degree tip provides a straight line of spray. It provides the
0’ highest amount of pressure. it is best used for removing hard, stuck-
on grime or dirt.
Green - Narrow fan tip (25°)
* The Green pressure washer tip provides high versatility with its 25
degree angle tip. Referred to as the washing tip, because if provides
adequate pressure to remove dirt from surfaces, but is designed to
not damage many surfaces. This pressure washer tip is designed for
“sweeping” foliage or debris given ifs wide angle. This tip is versatile
due to its wide area of cleaning and strong pressure application.
White - Wide fan tip (40°)
< The white 40 degree tip, referred to as the “fan” tip creates the
widest area of cleaning with relatively low pressure. This pressure
washer tip is best used for light or delicate cleaning applications. it
40 is recommended for light cleaning on wood decks and other soft or
delicate surfaces.
XX Black - Soap nozzle tip
- * The black soap 75 degree tip is referred to as the low pressure
SOAP nozzle. This is for use with soap application.
Turbo Nozzie Tip
+ This 0 degree nozzle tip rotates to create a circular spray pattern to
break down tough dirt and grime. The spray pattern can cover an
area of 4 to 8 inches wide, depending on the distance between the
tip and the surface being cleaned.
