November 30, 2007, Newsletter Issue #92: Pressure Washers and Non-Pressurized Water Supplies

Tip of the Week

Your pressure washer pumps may be damaged when trying to utilize a non-pressurized water source. The water pumps in pressure washers are not designed to "suck water" or draw water in--they are built to accommodate a pressurized water source. If pressure washer pumps are forced to suck water in, they draw air in along with the water, which can damage the equipment. Always use a pressurized water source!
