Choosing a Pressure Washer: Flow or Pressure?

Choosing a pressure washer can seem confusing at first but it is not that complicated if you take into consideration the basic elements. You need to determine how powerful the power washing equipment needs to be for your particular use.

First consider the two main factors: water pressure and flow.
* Water pressure is measured in PSI (pounds per square inch)
* Water flow is measured in GPM (gallons per minute).

Pressure determines how much force is applied on the surface to break the bond of the dirt or grime and flow determines how much water runs through the system and affects how fast the job can be done.

A reliable supplier can help you with your pressure washer selection by providing you with the usage guides and comparisons in relation to water flow and pressure.
