Which is the Best Pressure Washer

There seems to be a sweet spot when it comes to pressure washers.  It’s a combination of cleaning ability, price, quality, reliability, and the over feeling that you have MORE THAN ENOUGH power to clean anything you want.  There’s nothing worse than spending $300 on a pressure washer only to find out it’s just weak or not doing the job you want.

Personal Note From Doc…

I have NO LOYALTY when it comes to pressure washers. I can buy and use any brand I want.  I pay for them, I use them, I review them. PERIOD.  I have NO CONNECTION to Simpson.  I STRONGLY suggest you follow my EXACT ADVICE when ordering the units and the accessories.  If you do… you will be 100% pleased with the performance you get.  Made in the USA, and it’s about ALL THEY DO.  They even make their own water pumps for their units. ”  Doc

Both Models Below CLEAN roughly the same.

It’s more about a few features and the amount of HOURS you put on them.

Pressure Washer Choice #1

This unit has a GREAT price (around $380 delivered to your door) and is the perfect unit for the AVERAGE homeowner.  If you use a pressure washer a few times a year, for only a day or two at a time, you’ll get years and years out of this unit. Has TONS of power and is Docs top pick. Comes with the Honda GC190 premium residential engine. 3200 PSI – 2.5 GPM One Year warranty. Add 2 years warranty for about $30 

NOTE: This unit sells out quickly

Testing and reviewing two pressure washers.

PSI vs. GPM. What matters most?

When choosing a pressure washer, PSI and GPM are both equally important. The PSI refers to the amount of pressure produced and GPM refers to the amount of water flow. Each pressure washer is designed to have the correct combination of PSI and GPM to have the most effective cleaning experience for your needs.

Imagine PSI being a “stripping” action to blast off the grime with force on the surface you’re cleaning and GPM as the “flow” to move/rinse the dirt and grime off the surface.

PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) refers to

  • the amount of cleaning pressure the machine can produce.
  • the amount of cleaning pressure the machine can produce.
  • the amount of cleaning pressure the machine can produce.

GPM (Gallons per Minute) is the amount of water that is coming from the machine.

We often measure this PSI/GPM combination to create Cleaning Units (CU.)

Cleaning Units (CU) is the result of multiplying the PSI by the GPM. Cleaning units gives us a measurement of machine performance (efficiency) to compare one pressure washer to another.


Pressure washer A has 3000 PSI and 2.0 GPM = 6000 Cleaning Units

Pressure washer B has 2000 PSI and 3.0 GPM = 6000 Cleaning Units

The difference? The rinsing power is greater in pressure washer B than the stripping power. Meaning, Pressure washer B will clean (rinse dirt away) faster  than pressure washer A.  Although the CU is the same in both pressure washers, the higher the GPM, the faster the job will be finished.
