Your Guide to Pressure Washer Hose Repair

Pressure washers are essential tools for many Canadians in different sectors, from cleaning stubborn grime on driveways to maintaining a fleet of vehicles. But when your pressure washer’s hose gets kinked or starts to leak, your cleaning operations can come to an abrupt halt, wasting both time and resources. Before replacing the hose, let’s try practical solutions from Hotsy Water Blast experts to fix your pressure washer.

Diagnosing the Problem

First things first, identify the source of the leak. Is it a small pinhole, a major tear, or a connection issue at the hose fitting? Knowing the location will help determine the best course of action.

Residential: A leak near the spray gun connection might be a simple fix for homeowners. However, for leaks further down the hose or near the pump connection, professional help is recommended.

Businesses and Industries: Heavy-duty pressure washers are used in these sectors, and even minor leaks can pose a safety risk. Leave repairs to trained professionals to ensure your equipment functions optimally.

Repairing vs Replacing

 When repairing or replacing a pressure washer, it is important to consider the safety and efficiency of the equipment. While DIY repairs may seem like a cost-effective solution for small leaks in residential pressure washers, it is essential to note that pressure washer hoses carry immense pressure, and a faulty repair can be hazardous. Furthermore, improper repairs may not withstand the heavy-duty use common in businesses and industries. Therefore, it is recommended to seek professional repairs or replacements for optimal performance and safety.
