Low pressure coming from the water shaft is the first sign of a failing water pump. Water pumps fail quicker than any other part of the machine. The amount of use can cause them to break or burn out. You can easily fix this issue with a replacement pump. You will need to find the right part for your pressure washer. Pressure washers have two styles of pumps. You need to determine if your washer uses a triplex or axial pump. The axial is less durable and produces less PSIs than the triplex. It is typically found on low-cost models designed for the homeowner. The triplex is made for the professional cleaner. It is crafted with higher-grade components. Your replacement must match the correct model. You need to verify that you have the correct PSI as well. If you select a model with too much PSI, you may end up causing damage to the water shaft. Once you have found the correct pump parts, you can replace them on the pressure washer.What brands of water pumps are available?
There are many brand-name models of pumps available on the market. They include:
- Annovi Reverberi
- Briggs & Stratton
A pressure washer will produce anywhere from 40 to 45 PSI. Most models would never exceed 60 PSI. The normal setting for your washer should be at 50 PSI.
