The Ratings for Pressure Washers
When you start looking at pressure washers, it becomes clear that there are a lot of numbers and many differences between all of them. What numbers are truly important? Is the horsepower important? What about the pressure generated? There is a number that can provide you with a good comparison between machines regardless of whether they are electric or gas, and that’s cleaning power units or CPU.
So how do you calculate the cleaning power units? It actually is fairly straightforward and can be calculated readily to compare two units that otherwise might look the same. There are two numbers that you will need to calculate the CPU and all pressure washers have these numbers. The first is the pounds per square inch, or PSI, which is the pressure generated by a pressure washer. The other number is the gallons per minute or GPM.
When you multiply these two numbers together you get the cleaning power units. With this calculation, a machine that has a lower PSI could actually have a high CPU because the GPM is higher than the other machine you were looking at. The CPU is equalizing numbers to do comparisons between pressure washers so you know just how much cleaning power each machine has.
Options For Pressure Washers
While getting the right pressure washer with the right cleaning power units is important, that is only part of the story. You will have specific applications to use your pressure washer for, and there are some accessories that will help to make the job fast and effective. Things such as using the right nozzle can help with the job at hand. There are also extensions and telescoping wands to help reach places that are out of reach of the normal length. You can also get dirt blasters that rotate to help remove stubborn dirt and debris. And there are other specialized accessories to help with other cleaning needs.
Pressure washers are used every day in Rockland, Brooklyn, Orange County, White Plains, Norwalk, Westchester, and the surrounding areas to keep equipment and vehicles clean and ready for action.
