Are you placing a pressure washer hose order? There are a variety of details to remember, but some are more important than the rest. Do you use steam or seam injection in your pressure pump cleaning jobs? Look closely at the type of hose you are about to buy. If the words "not rated for steam" make a difference in your purchase, double check to make sure your high pressure hose selection is rated to handle steam or steam injection applications. Running steam through a high pressure hose not rated to handle the heat creates a hazard. The excessive heat can damage the hose until it begins to leak, putting you at risk for steam burns. You can also get a hot water burn from the same leak point.
