Pressure Washer Applications – Think Outside the Box!

When it comes to pressure washers, most people think of washing cars, equipment or buildings. In reality, there are hundreds of uses for pressure washers that most people don’t realized exist. By “thinking outside the box”, a single pressure washer can be used for multiple applications in order to save water, money and time.

Heavy equipment/truck washing is probably one of the first applications people think about. With the right tip, a pressure washer can cut through tough mud, oil and grease to clean up even the messiest jobs.

With the little rain we’ve had this season, it’s hard to imagine how we’ll dig ourselves out of this pickle but there are simple solutions that residents and small business owners can implement now that will dramatically help the individual and the overall community to save a gallon here and there.


– Install low flow aeration devices on all faucets and sprinklers to minimize excess water.

– Tightening the nut on water faucet.

– Use a simple hour glass shower timer.

– Use a pressure washer whenever possible to dramatically decrease water usage.

– Change filters on air conditioners.

– Change ice machine filters.

– Use a greywater filter on washing machines to divert water to plants and shrubs.
