What are some measures I can take to prevent premature pump failure?
To prevent premature piston and pump failure follow these guidelines: |
> Clean nozzles to prevent excessive back pressure.
> Never run pump dry of water. Always hook water up to the pump before turning your pressure washer on.
> Do not run pump too long without spraying water. Hot water will build up inside of the pump. This can causing damage.
> Never run hot water through the pressure washer.
> Check for abrasive material entering the pump. Use the hose screen provided to prevent abrasives entering the pump.
> Always inspect for damaged or worn parts.
> Never adjust the factory PSI setting for the pump
