Save Big When You Invest in a Pressure Washer
It is common for a consumer to assume that a pressure washer is not good for the environment and that the best way to clean their home or business is with a good old-fashioned water hose. This is not generally true. Keep reading to learn more about how a pressure washer can save you money, time, and water, and then contact Geyser Equipment at 951-509-9269 to learn about your options in pressure washers, pressure washer accessories, and much more.
Pressure Washers Use Much Less Water
The truth is that a pressure washer uses a lot less water than a hose does. How? Because the pressure forces water out of a small hole. On average, a pressure washer will use two gallons of water per minute. How much does your typical garden hose use? 20 gallons per minute.
Not only does a pressure washer use less money on a minute-by-minute basis, but it requires fewer minutes to clean, which saves even more money. Consider that a garden hose offers about ten pounds per square inch (PSI) of pressure, and if you add a spray nozzle, you can get it up to 50 PSI, while a pressure washer can offer 2000 PSI or even more – all while using only a few gallons per minute.
Finally, if you add a light detergent to your pressure washing mix, you will end up using 80% less water than you would have used with just a garden hose.
Save Money on Water
Of course, the biggest savings is on water. With drought conditions across the country and water restrictions in place, many municipalities are raising the price of water. When you are getting as much as 50% more pressure with 80% less water, it is not hard to see the potentially significant cost savings of a power washer.
Save Time Using a Pressure Washer
Do you want to spend minutes cleaning your driveway or hours? Do you want to spend half a day cleaning the exterior of your house or get it done in no time flat? Hoses do not produce enough pressure to get the job done quickly, while pressure washers can remove just about anything, including oil, gum, and more.
You Get Better Results
You will use less water and get the job done more quickly, but neither of these would matter if the result was not at least as good as it would be with a hose. The good news is that this is far from true – a pressure washer can get the surface much cleaner than a garden hose.
