When cleaning the outside of a structure, a concrete pathway or a brick patio among other things, an electric hot water pressure washer speeds up the process. Putting the operator in control of a high-powered jet of hot water, electric pressure washers are designed to be safe despite the incredible force behind the water. Different units of variable power are available depending on the application. Some hot water pressure washers are steam capable, good for the toughest cleaning jobs when grime, paint or other materials have to be gotten under to fully clean.
Electric Hot Water Pressure Washer Specifications
Electric pressure washers differ from each other with regard to pressure, water flow, horsepower, pump type and other specifications. Motors feature typically 1.5 to 5.0 horsepower. Water is pressurized between 1000 and 4000 PSI, while the tools have a max water flow rate ranging from 1.5 to 4.0 gallons per minute. Electric pressures require up to 230 volts which entails a larger circuit.
A 50-foot hose adds mobility when cleaning with the pressure washer, while the extra-long power cord with GFCI increases range and safety precautions. A quick-connect lance, spray gun and several angled nozzles come with most pressure washers. Units with steam capability can heat water up to 250 degrees F. Both the water temperature and the pressure may be adjustable.
