Can I use my pressure washer as a sandblaster?

Use Your Pressure Washer as a Sandblaster

Your pressure washer isn't just for spraying surfaces with water. With the right attachments, you can also use it as a sandblaster. You'll need to start with a unit that has a minimum of 3000 PSI of water pressure. Add a sandblasting attachment and you can transform your pressure washer into a whole new tool. Next on your list, get an ideal abrasive like a crushed glass abrasive, which contains no hazardous materials and is lightweight.
