So you're getting ready to pressure wash your deck. It's important that you set your nozzle correctly before you start. You should use a 40" spray pattern for optimal results. For a pressure washer dishing out less than 2,000 PSI, keep your nozzle about a foot away from the deck. At 2,000-3,000 PSI, your nozzle can be one to two feet away. At 3,000 PSI, your nozzle can be up to three feet away.
