The Use of Safety Chains on Pressure Washer Hoses

When the connection on a high pressure hose bursts due to excessive pressure, the blast of water can cause the hoses to go flying. An emergency safety valve on the water source feeding your pressure washer hoses can prevent this. If you don't have such a safety valve installed, you should definitely use safety chains on the connections of your pressure washer hoses. This prevents injury, lost work time, and property damage. Depending on your equipment and how you use it, this safety equipment may be required by law. Do you know what local or state safety regulations say about safety chains on high pressure hoses? Ask your vendor for advice on safety gear if you aren't sure.
