The powerful spray from your pressure washer is capable of causing damage to surfaces such as wood, glass, automobile paint, auto striping and trim, and delicate objects such as flowers and shrubs. Before spraying, check the item to be cleaned to assure yourself that it is strong enough to resist damage from the force of the spray. Avoid the use of the concentrated spray stream except for very strong surfaces like concrete and steel.

Operating unit with water supply shutoff without flow of water will result in equipment damage. Operating the pressure washer with water supply shutoff will void your warranty. You should never run this pressure washer for more than 2 minutes without pulling the trigger to allow cool water to enter the pump and the heated (recirculated) water to exit.
