This is the first in a full series of videos and posts about pressure washers and power washing.  We’ll be updating often. In this video which is the FIRST in the series, Doc talks about what size pressure washer is right for the average home owner.  Keep in mind, that if you follow these guidelines, you should never want MORE power.  We’ll be posting links and updating.

Video Here:

Pressure washers and understanding psi vs gpm as well as some pressure washing tips.
Think of PSI…. as the CLEANING POWER of the unit.
Think of GPM… as the CLEANING VOLUME of the unit.
If you NEVER want to feel like you need MORE of either around the house, then go with 3000+ psi and keep your GPM at 2.5 or higher.  Again, the one used in the video was actually lower than that and has NO ISSUES cleaning any type of surface.
