Types of Pressure Washers

Types of Pressure Washers

Rainfall might do an OK job of nurturing your garden and washing away some dirt, but buildings, sidewalks, and other outdoor elements just get dirty. When Mother Nature doesn't provide enough cleaning power, it's time to turn to the power of a pressure washer. Although these items are widely available for rental, the regular nature of outdoor cleaning duties may make it more cost-effective and convenient to have your own machine to use whenever you need. There are several types of pressure washers that enable you to choose one that's best suited for the size of your yard and your cleaning needs. Here's a short overview to help you.

Cleaning Power

Pressure washers differ from one another based on their cleaning power. That is measured in gallons per square inch or pounds per square inch, which indicates how quickly and how hard the water is released.

Gas vs. Electric

As with most outdoor garden machines, pressure washers can be powered by either gas or electricity. Which you choose depends on what you prefer for convenience.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Pressure washers are a useful investment -- they provide convenient power that can help you keep your home and property in tip-top condition. But before you invest in one, you should consider a few buying options that may help protect you and increase the opportunity for using the machine. Those include specialized accessories and attachments as well as items to improve safety. As you review all the types of pressure washers, take time to investigate this short list of purchase considerations.

Accessories and Attachments

Special accessories and attachments for pressure washers may be available, including specialized brushes, nozzles, and additional hoses; those can increase the flexible use of your machine.


Pressure washers should be operated with the correct safety gear, including glasses and any other manufacturer-recommended items, to help prevent injury.


Some pressure washers have variable operating modes that allow you to increase or decrease pressure based on the type of job.


All pressure washers direct water through a wand; the length and design of the wand varies from machine to machine.
