Whenever you are about to buy an accessory for your pressure washer system, ask yourself what you need to do with the washer. Be very specific about what you need and what you want to do. You want to be absolutely certain you are choosing the right parts before making a purchase.
If you are thinking of getting a 12-foot-long power washer extension wand, but you might have use for an 18-footer down the line, why not just get the 18 now and save time and money? Plan ahead and you can end up buying one accessory that will suit all your future needs instead of re-buying something in a larger size or higher capacity because the first one you bought is not enough any more.
This applies to nozzles, reels and pressure hoses, extension wands, brush attachments and more. If you are not sure about an item, try looking at some user reviews online. See what other people who bought the same accessory have to say about it and this will help steer you in the right direction toward the right product.
And if you notice the performance level on one of your accessories taking a dive, replace it sooner rather than later so you don't have to sit around waiting to complete a job because you don't have the right equipment available.
