If, when turning on pressure washer pumps you get low pressure, there are a few things to double check. First, try turning your pressure washer valve up to the maximum. Does this increase the pressure at all? If not, you may have a clogged or bent line. You should also do an inspection of your hoses to insure you don't have any leaks. All of these things can contribute to reduced pressure washer performance. If you suspect your water pump, you may need to get some expert advice--call the manufacturer for help if you think your water pump is going bad.
