Should I invest in a telescoping wand?

Pressure Washer Telescoping Wands

Pressure washer telescoping wands are great for cleaning hard-to-reach areas without a ladder. The wands are made in sections designed to be fitted together. The setup of these pressure washer telescoping wands depends on the amount of pressure the unit is rated to handle and the size of the hose. The additional length of the pressure washer attachments means you can experience a reduction in water pressure. One configuration allows a higher PSI by including fiberglass in the construction, but the added water volume and fiberglass adds weight to the unit. It takes some practice to get used to the additional weight. It's important to maintain control of the unit on the job, especially near windows that can break if you loose control of the power washer extension wand. When spraying with the pressure washer telescoping wand, you can find better control by balancing the pole using the force of the spray against the surface being cleaned. At the right distance, the balancing act is much easier. Get too close to the surface and you lose control of the balance.
