SurfacePreparation
Before starting any cleaning task, it is important to inspect the area for objects that could 
create a hazard. Remove any objects from the work area that could be tripped over, such as 
toys or outdoor furniture. Ensure that all doors and windows are closed tightly. 

WaterSupply(ColdWaterOnly)
Only draw water through the unit. For use with cold water supply only. Water hose must 
be at least a 1/2” (13 mm) in diameter. Flow rate of water supply must not fall below 2 
GPM (gallons per minute) [9.1 LPM (litres per minute)]. Flow rate can be determined by 
running the water for one minute into an empty 5-gallon (19 L) container. The water supply 
temperature must not exceed 104°F (40°C).

ASSEMBLY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Working with detergent ensures a quick soaking of the dirt, and allows the high-pressure 
water to penetrate and remove the dirt more effectively. Always spray detergent on a dry 
surface, do not pre-soak area. Wetting the surface first dilutes the detergent and reduces 
its cleaning ability.

To apply detergents you must be operating at low pressure. This provides a gentle 
application of detergent, with the pressure equivalent to the lowest garden hose. The  
high-pressure setting is used for cleaning; you cannot apply detergents when working at 
high pressure. Always test detergent in an inconspicuous area before use.

CAUTION
Onlyusecleaningdetergentsrecommendedforpressurewashers.

WORKING WITH DETERGENTS

1

Engage gun safety lock. 

Attach the low-pressure spray tip (black) for 
soap application.

2

Turn on the pressure washer. Pull trigger to operate unit. The liquid detergent will automati-
cally mix with water, and be discharged through the nozzle. Apply detergent to a DRY work 
surface, from bottom to top.

Gently pull detergent containers out of storage position, and fill with detergent. Push 
containers back into storage position.

Allow detergent to remain on the surface for a short time before rinsing. Do not allow 
detergent to dry on surface.

Rinse with clean water under high pressure. On a vertical surface, rinse from the 
bottom up, then rinse from the top down to avoid streaking. Hold nozzle 6-8” (15-20 
cm) from the work surface, at a 45° angle.

WINTERIZING AND LONG-TERM STORAGE

OptimumWinterizingProcedure
Winterizing your pressure washer will help protect and prolong its life. We strongly 
recommend you follow the below steps using Pressure Washer Antifreeze (039-8602-0). 
This will keep the internal parts lubricated, protected from rust, and prevents the pump 
from freezing.

1. Connect the pump saver hose onto the adaptor and quick-connect coupling.
2. Depress button on top of pump saver container.
3.Continueuntilfluidexitsthepressurehose.
4. Remove the hose from pump inlet.

QuickWinterizingProcedure
If you cannot do the Optimum Winterizing 
procedure, you can still protect your 
pressure washer from winter damage by 
doing the below:

1. Disconnect all water connections.
2. Turn on the machine for a few seconds, 

until the remaining water in the pump 
exits. Turn off immediately.

3. Do not allow high-pressure hose to 

become kinked.

4. Store the machine and accessories in 

a room that does not reach freezing 
temperatures. Do not store near furnace 
or other sources of heat as it may dry out 
the pump seals.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Connections
Connections on pressure washer hoses, gun and spray wand should be cleaned regularly 
and lubricated with non-water soluble grease.

SprayTipsOnly
Clogging of the spray tips causes the pump 
pressure to be too high and cleaning is im-
mediately required. You can clean the spray 
tips by carefully inserting a needle, or a thin, 
sharp instrument (i.e. paperclip) into the tip 
to rid it of deposits.

WaterFilterScreen
The pressure washer is equipped with a wa-
ter inlet screen to protect the pump. If the 
screenisnotkeptclean,theflowofwater
to the pressure washer will be restricted 
and the pump may be damaged.

1. To clean inner water screen, remove 

quick-connector and remove the filter 
screen from the pump inlet.

2. Rinse screen until it is free of debris  

and blockage.

3. Replace screen and quick-connector im-

mediately to prevent any foreign matter 
from entering the pump.
