PRESSURE WASHER TERMINOLOGY

PSI: Pounds per Square Inch. The unit of measure for water pressure. Also used for air pressure, hydraulic pressure, etc.

GPM: Gallons Per Minute. The unit of measure for the flow rate of water.

CU: Cleaning Units. GPM multiplied by PSI. GPM x PSI = CU

Bypass Mode: Allows water to re-circulate within pump when the gun trigger is not pulled.

Allowing the unit to run for more than

two minutes without the gun trigger pulled could cause overheating and damage to the pump.

Detergent injection system: Mixes cleaning solution with the water to

improve cleaning effectiveness.

Water Supply: All pressure washers must have a source of water. The minimum requirements for a water supply are 20 PSI and 5 gallons per minute.

PRESSURE WASHER

OPERATING FEATURES

PRESSURE ADJUSTMENTS

The pressure setting is preset at the factory to achieve optimum pressure and cleaning. If you need to lower the pressure, it can be accomplished by these methods.

1.Back away from the surface to be cleaned. The further away you are, the less amount of pressure will be applied to the surface to be cleaned.

2.Rotate the nozzle at the end of the multi-adjustable spray wand to widen the fan spray.

The wider fan spray will minimize the pressure on the surface to be cleaned.

DO NOT attempt to increase pump pressure. A higher pressure setting

than the factory set pressure may damage pump.

HOW TO USE SPRAY WAND

Your pressure washer is equipped with a multi-adjustable spray wand with both high and low pressure settings. The high pressure setting is for cleaning and rinsing, the low pressure setting is for applying detergent/cleaning solutions or cleaning solutions to surfaces.

When using the high pressure

setting, DO NOT allow the jet-like spray to come in contact with unprotected skin, eyes, or with any pets or animals. Serious injury can occur.

Risk of injection or injury to person.

DO NOT direct discharge stream toward persons.

For high pressure operation, pull back the nozzle of the multi-adjustable spray wand as shown in Fig. 9.

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.

READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL WARNINGS BEFORE STARTING UNIT

When using the high-pressure setting, DO NOT allow the spray to come in contact with unprotected skin, eyes, or

with any pets or animals. Serious injury can occur.

Your washer operates at fluid pressures and velocities high enough to penetrate human and animal flesh, which could result in amputation or other serious injury. Leaks caused by loose fittings or worn or damaged hoses can result in injection injuries. DO NOT TREAT FLUID INJECTION AS A SIMPLE

CUT! See a physician immediately!

NEVER fill fuel tank when engine is running or hot. Do not smoke when filling fuel tank.

NEVER fill fuel tank completely. Fill tank to 1/2" below top of tank to provide space for fuel expansion. Wipe any fuel spillage from engine and equipment before starting engine.

NEVER run engine indoors or in enclosed, poorly ventilated areas. Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, an odorless and deadly gas.

NEVER carry pressure washer with engine running, turn engine off and allow it to cool before carrying pressure washer.

DO NOT let hoses come in contact with hot engine muffler during or immediately after use of your pressure washer. Damage to hoses from contact with hot engine surfaces will NOT be covered by warranty.

NEVER pull water supply hose to move pressure washer. This could damage hose and/or pump inlet.

DO NOT use hot water, use cold water only.

NEVER turn water supply off while pressure washer engine is running or damage to pump will result.

DO NOT stop spraying water for more than two minutes at a time. Pump operates in bypass mode when spray gun trigger is not pressed. If pump is left in bypass mode for more than two minutes internal components of the pump can be damaged.

If you do not understand these precautions, please call 1-866-4SIMONIZ (1 866 474 6664).
