Just because a pressure washer shoots water instead of bullets, doesn't mean that the spray can't hurt someone. Follow these common sense rules to ensure injury-free pressure washer operation. *Never direct spray toward any part of your body or any other person.
*Always engage the safety lock-off after use to prevent unintended operation.
*Never block or wire the trigger lever in the open position. Obstructing the trigger lever will cause improper operation. Discontinue use if gun valve does not close immediately upon trigger release.
*Never exceed the pressure and flow ratings of the gun.
*Ensure all pressure is released from the system before attempting to repair.
