Taking good care of a machine doesn’t just mean that it’ll last longer, it means it’s also safer! Keep yourself and other users safe by regularly inspecting your pressure washer for compromised components. While you are at it, be sure to check HOSES FOR DAMAGE!

High-pressure hoses contain a wire braid that can become damaged over time. One of the major reasons hose failures happen is because the integrity of the wire braid has been compromised. When this happens, a burst hose can occur. Keep yourself and other users safe by following these simple tips below:


1.) Use the properly rated hose for your machine!

2.) Avoid running over your hose with a vehicle!

3.) Put your hose away properly to avoid excessive kinking!

4.) Avoid dragging your hose across the ground. The friction can wear the rubber off of the hose, exposing the wire braid!
