Winter Pump Protection

It's important to familiarize yourself with pressure washer safety tips. For instance, if you live in a cold climate, you can face some irreversible damage with the pump in your pressure washer. Frozen water will expand and any remaining liquid in your pump can cause problems. To avoid broken and ruptured parts, make sure that you do the following:

• Store the pump in a warm area.
• Use compressed air to release the remaining fluid.
• Run a mixture of 50% antifreeze and 50% water through your pump.

Note: Check manufacturer recommendations for winter safety for your pressure washer.
