Don’t know your bar from your flow rate? Here’s all you need to know about the technical features of a pressure washer.
How does a pressure washer work?
Pressure washers connect up to your garden hose and use electricity to power a pump system, which then accelerates the water at a high pressure. Despite being a lot more powerful, they actually use less water than your hose, making them incredibly efficient.
Power – A pressure washer’s power is measured in watts. More watts equal more power.
Flow rate – Flow rate is measured in litres. The faster the flow rate, the quicker the water comes out.
Pressure - Rated bar is the average pressure a pressure washer will reach while you use it. Higher pressure is best for tough jobs, while light jobs are better suited to using less pressure. Max bar is the maximum amount of pressure that a pressure washer can reach, although it is unlikely to able to reach that level consistently.
