What does water leakage from under the pump manifold mean?

Troubleshooting Water Leaks

If you see water leaking out from under the manifold in your gas or electric power washer, you instinctively know that this is not a healthy sign. But don't be too alarmed.

This mechanical incontinence can be due to a combination of worn O-rings, worn water seals, and/or worn piston guides. Check them out and replace as necessary. Your power washer should be good to go.

My power washer is designed so that you can't look into it and see if it's leaking inside, even if you could, there's no way to get your hand inside it to fix it. Mc Cullough model # fhh20a
