Electric pressure washers are literally lifesavers for compulsive cleaners out there. Just like all the other tech coming around, this is also a step forward that makes cleaning so much easier and fun (at least for me).
Setting up these pressure washers is not as hard as it seems, to reaffirm your belief I’ll give you a step by step coverage of how to start an electric pressure washer, so you’re all set to go with your cleaning needs.
Some precautionary measures before starting. Make sure the electronic pressure washer is set up on a flat floor to make things easier for you.
The second most important piece of information is to set up the water strainer in place and make sure it does not have any dirt in it (a new cleaner would be highly recommended).
After you’ve connected the garden hose to the washer and the other part of it to the water supply board.
Now that you’re all set, first start with the high-pressure nozzle as it is the main part of your machine, to set it up, first, you pull the collar of the nozzle on the back. Now fix the nozzle up in a wand nozzle, and once it is set in the position, let go of the collar of the nozzle, so it goes back into place.
Always make sure that the nozzle once it is fixed actually snaps into its place, or the procedure to come would go sideways pretty quick!
Turning the motor on
Now turn on the water, to do that you need to hold the trigger inside the gun, the washer and the hose will soon start to fill up with the water that is just released inside. As water has started to flow, it would be very wise to clear the system of any air inside before starting, especially to a new, unused machine. Once the water is inside, it is ready to start the motor, to start the engine all you need to do is to is the turn the switch on by either dragging the button upside on some models and actually clicking the button till the LED indicator shows a green light on the washer in other models.
Once water is set up, and the motor has started, you’ll be ready to use the machine. But before you do, there are some things you’ll need to do.
Firstly, turn off the motor of the machine from the electricity source you’re giving, all in all, just make sure that it isn’t getting any electric current from any source.
Once done start squeezing the trigger slightly, now remember before you do this, the pressure is most likely at the highest peak, to release this pressure you’ll need to squeeze the trigger on the machine handle on the pipe of the electric pressure washer. The water will most likely come out with a bit of a kick swift (hold onto your seatbelts!).
After the pressure is released, shut down the unit and make sure the water supply is shut off too. This method can be repeated once more if the machine is brand new and can also be skipped if the machine has been in the running, and you’ve either rented it or bought it second hand.
Now disconnect the hose from the machine and the hose gun. Once done, disconnect the garden hose altogether and remove all the access water from it. Now return the holder to the unit, or if you want to use it, repeat the procedures.
Some More Tips
Now before you start using the washer, mandatory precautions need to be understood too. (no one wants to die while starting an electric pressure washer, am I right?).
Make sure the motor is connected correctly; this is the first and foremost thing you need to do. The most number of accidents related to this machine is from the engine not set up correctly, and with water involved, it becomes all the more necessary to make sure both the elements don’t match up.
In case of any spark or faulty wiring close the machine as soon as possible, do not proceed with a defective wire.
Next, you’ll need to take off the hose handle every time you operate the machine and put in the right holder, with the water supply near the nozzle not setting it up to the right holder can lead to water leakage.
Turn off your water supply after you’ve used the machine also for water wastage control. After this, you’re all set. Enjoy the revolutionary machine that is going to change your life forever! YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY STARTED AN ELECTRIC POWER WASHER.
