Question house powerwash

Hi All!
I need power wash vinyl siding on my house. What machine I should rent or buy:
1750 psi, 2000 psi, 2200 psi or 2500 psi? I know that high pressure can damage siding.
In the same time I want a sufficient pressure to be able to clean it.

Thanks a lot.

Greg: No matter which pressure you choose, you have already mentioned not to over do it. In addition, look into a product similar to JoMax for siding. It will help in removing stubborn dirt, mildew, etc. You won't have to use full power to rinse it down. Also, check into an extension wand when you rent your washer.

I agree with Larry's recomendation of using a cleaner. IMO it is always better to let the cleaner do the majority of the work.
