Question

How do you convert (to compare) PSI to horsepower?

I borrowed a 3.75 HP power washer from a family member and would like to purchase one of my own but I don't know what to buy as I can't compare HP to PSI. Please advise. Thank you

We recommend considering cleaning power as a useful way to compare units. Cleaning power is typically calculated by multiplying PSI x GPM (gallons per minute). For example, our 2500PSI residential power washer delivers water at 2.3 GPM, for a cleaning power of 5750. Additionally, consider all of the design features. For example, Generac power washers were designed to use a horizontal engine so that the pump is easily accessible. They're also well balanced and easy to maneuver. Keep in mind you will be moving this unit in and out of the garage or shed and all around the yard. Storage is another important element. Buying a unit with a smaller footprint like ours means that it won’t take up as much space in the garage or shed. We hope these considerations help you in your buying decision.

Probably no pressure washer will remove the paint from cement. Paint bonds to all the tiny holes on cement and is very difficult to remove. A zero degree tip would probably remove it, but may also chip and flake the cement too. If you applied a commercial graffiti remover first then pressure washed it with a 15 degree tip, it might work.

The factory set pressure for the unit is 3000 PSI, but due to the variation in engine speed, which is customer controlled with the throttle control, the PSI range can vary. The unit will also come with 5 different nozzles, a 0°, 15°, 25°, 40°, and a soap applicator nozzle, each designed to tailor the stream of water to the job. The 0° red nozzle is the high pressure nozzle, the 15° yellow nozzle and 25° green nozzle are medium pressure nozzles, and the 40° white nozzle is a low pressure nozzle.

The engines for the 3000psi Power Washers are manufactured to our specifications by a partner overseas. The units will come with a factory warranty, and can be serviced by any dealer in our nation-wide dealer network. With proper maintenance, you can expect years of reliable service, but based on all of the different environmental and operational factors involved, we are unable to put an exact time frame on life expectancy of the engine.

The pumps on our power washers are not metered, as it is a direct suction from the tank through the pump. Meaning, the concentration of the cleaning agent does not change as it goes through the power washer, and the mix rate in the chemical tank will be pulled through the high pressure water stream, staying the same through the spray gun.

The 3000psi Power Washer does not have an automatic idle control, but they do have a manual throttle control. If you run the engine on your power washer for 3-5 minutes without pressing the trigger on the spray gun, circulating water in the pump can reach temperatures above 125°F. The thermal relief system engages to cool the pump by discharging the warm water onto the ground.

If detergent is not necessary for the job being performed, the detergent siphon hose does not need to be attached. You will still want to ensure that the water supply hose and the high pressure hose are correctly attached before each use.

Only soaps made for pressure washers, or liquid auto soap, should be utilized. You want to ensure that the soap is not a bleach or acid based soap as it could damage the pump. Always make sure to put the pickup tube in clean water and flush the system after each use.

The distance the unit will spray will vary on factors such as the nozzle utilized, and the speed at which the manual throttle is set. When selecting a power washer, the most important thing to consider is cleaning power—the output pressure (PSI) multiplied by the water flow rate (GPM). The higher the cleaning power, the more effectively it will clean. This unit has a cleaning power of 8,100.

The siphon hose will connect directly to the pump as described in the Assembly section in the owner’s manual. The filter end of the siphon tube must be properly submerged in the detergent container or tank being used.
