Prevention

  • During operation, touch only the control surface of the washer pump. Keep children away from the washer pump at all times. They are too young to recognize the hazards of this product.


WARNING RISK OF FLUID INJECTION.

What can happen:

  • Your washer pump operates at fluid pressures and velocities high enough to penetrate human and animal flesh, which could result in amputation or other serious injuries. Leaks caused by loose fittings or damaged hoses can result in injection injuries. DO NOT TREAT FLUID INJECTION AS A SIMPLE CUT. See a physician immediately.

Prevention

  • Never place hands in front of nozzle.
  • Direct spray away from self and others.
  • Make sure hose and fittings are tightened and in good condition. Never hold onto the hose or fittings during operation.
  • Do not allow hose to contact muffler.
  • Never attach or remove lance or hose fittings while system is pressurized.

What can happen:

  • Injuries can result if system pressure is not reduced before attempting maintenance or disassembly.

Prevention

  • To relieve system pressure, shut off engine, turn off water supply, and pull gun trigger until water stops flowing.
  • Use only hose and accessories rated for pressure higher than your washer pump's PSI


WARNING RISK OF INJURY FROM SPRAY.

What can happen:

  • High velocity fluid spray can cause objects to break, propelling particles at high speed.
  • Light or unsecured objects can become hazardous projectiles.

Prevention

  • Always wear approved safety glasses.
  • Wear protective clothing to protect against accidental spraying.
  • Never point lance at people or animals.
  • Always secure trigger lock when lance is not in service to prevent accidental operation.
  • Never permanently secure trigger in open position.

WASHER PUMP TERMINOLOGY

PSI: POUNDS PER SQUARE INCH, the unit measure for water pressure, also used for air pressure, hydraulic pressure, etc.

GPM: GALLONS PER MINUTE, the unit measure for the flow rate of water.

Bypass Mode: In bypass mode, the pump is recirculating water because the trigger of the spray gun is not pulled. If unit is left in bypass mode for more than two minutes.The water pressure will rise to a dangerous level and could damage internal components of the pump. Any damage to pump due to these causes will not be covered under warranty.

CAUTION
Do not allow unit to operate in bypass mode for more than two minutes at any time. Overheating of pump can cause damage to pump.

Thermal Relief Valve: In an effort to prevent extreme damage, pumps are equipped with a thermal relief valve. This valve will open the temperature inside the pump rises too high. This valve will then release a gush of water in an effort to lower the temperature inside the pump. Immediately after this occurs, the valve will close.

Chemical Injection System: Mixes cleaners or cleaning solvents with the pressurized water to improve cleaning effectiveness.

Water Supply: All pressure washers must have a source of water. The minimum requirement for a water supply is 20PSI and 5 gallon per minute.

WASHER PUMP OPERATING FEATURES.

PRESSURE REGULATOR

The pressure setting is preset at the factory to achieve optimum pressure and cleaning.If you need to lower the pressure,it can be accomplished by these methods.

1. Back away from the surface to be cleaned. The further away you are,the less the pressure will be on the surface to be cleaned.
CAUTION Do not attempt to increase pump pressure. A higher pressure setting than the factory set pressure may damage pump.
2. Reduce the speed the gasoline engine (RPM). Slow the engine down and the water pressure will go down with it.
3. Change to a nozzle , This nozzle delivers a less powerful stream of water and a wider spray pattern.
4. Adjust the pressure regulator on the pump . Turn the pressure regulator knob counter-clockwise to lower pressure. Once you have finished using your pressure washer, return the pressure regulator to it's original position by turning it clockwise.
CAUTION Do not try to turn pressure regulator knob past the build-in stop or pump may be damaged.
