Maintaining Your Pressure Washer Pump

Pressure washers have become an integral part in many South African business’ cleaning supplies. Its use extends to cleaning vehicles, building exteriors, concrete surfaces and even roofs, etc. Depending on the strength of the pressure washer, it can remove dust, grime, dirt and even loose paint from surfaces. Good quality pressure cleaners from leading brands like Cat Pumps will last for a very long time, when used and maintained properly.

Your washer’s high pressure pump forms its main part and requires regular maintenance to keep it working at its optimal best. One of the great benefits of working with pressure washers is that its maintenance is incredibly simple and only requires a few easy steps. These include primarily changing the oil frequently and making sure to keep the pump free from any contaminants. It is recommended to do this after at least every fifty hours of use, or once a year.

Cleaning the Pressure Washer Pump

There are always small impurities from the water that could enter the pump and subsequently damage the pumping mechanism. Even though there are screens that work to block impurities from entering the pump, tiny contaminants can still find its way inside. To effectively clean the pump, first turn on the inlet water supply. After this, remove the spray gun’s spray wand.

After the engine has been started, squeeze and hold the trigger until you notice a consistent water stream. Maintain this stream for several minutes, allowing all the dirt to escape and then connect the safety latch, attaching the gun’s spray wand again.

Regular Maintenance of Your Pressure Washer Pump

There are various other maintenance aspects that need to be taken into account in the upkeep of your pressure washer. Before each use, make sure to:

  • Verify oil level;
  • Inspect the pressure hose and spray wand;
  • Check the water screen; and
  • Clean the garden hose.

After each use of the pressure washer, be sure to empty the water from the pressure hose and pump after flushing out any detergents that were used.
