Cool PWH2500 Power Washer Problems

I bought a PWH2500 power washer last fall (2005) and used it probably two hours after DevilBiss sent me the replacement power sprayer handle. After that I havent used the washer until approximately one week ago. I was washing my deck in order to refinish it. The power washer was working perfectly for about 5 straight days. Today I started it up and water started coming from the sides of the quick connect wand where the quick connect nozzles attach. The nozzles now seem as if they are loose in the quick connect socket at the end of the wand. Any suggestions?

Sounds like O-rings are bad or missing..

Smile You hit the nail on the head!

I went to Lowes & took a look at other washers quick connect nozzles and you are right! They had an 0-ring inside of them. Mine must have blown out at one time or the other. I am learning more about the washer a little bit at a time!
Thanks for your reply and take care.

Use stopcock grease, or other non-petroleum grease on the O-rings.. It won't react with the rubber as regular grease will..
