July 30, 2010, Newsletter Issue #229: Unclogging the Nozzle

Tip of the Week

So you've figured out how to operate a pressure washer, but now the nozzle is clogged and you don't know how to clean it. First make sure you disconnect the spray wand from the gun. Next, get a small piece of rigid wire to clear out the nozzle. A straightened paper clip will do the trick. Use water to flush out the nozzle backwards and then reconnect the wand to the gun. Now you can test out the nozzle by starting the pressure washer and pressing the trigger on the spray gun. If there's still a clog, try cleaning it again a few times. After a couple tries, if you're not successful, your best bet is to replace the nozzle entirely.
