Before starting up your ma-

chine please check it care-

fully for any defects. If you 

fi nd any, do not start up 

your machine and contact 

your Gerni  distributor.

Especially check:

 The insulation of the

5  Fields of application and 



5.1 General 

Effi cient high presure cleaning is achieved by following a 

few guidelines, combined with your own personal experi-

ence of specifi c cleaning tasks. Accessories and deter-

gents, when correctly chosen, can increase the effi ciency 

of your pressure washer. Here is some basic information 

about cleaning.

5.1.1 Detergent and foam

Foam or detergent should be applied onto dry surfaces so 

that the chemical product is in direct contact with the dirt. 

Detergents are applied from bottom to top, for example 

on a car bodywork, in order to avoid "super clean" areas, 

where the detergent collects in higher concentration and 

streams downwards. Let the detergent work for several 

minutes before rinsing but never let it dry on the surface 

being cleaned. 


It is important that the detergents do 

not dry up. Otherwise the surface that has to be cleaned 

can be da maged.

5.1.2 Mechanical effect


In order to break down tough layers of dirt, additional 

mechanical effect may be required. Special wash brushes 

offer this supplementary effect that cuts through dirt (es-

pecially by car washing).


background image


5.2  Typical fi elds of application

Below you will fi nd a description of a lot of cleaning tasks which can be solved by a pres-

sure washer from Gerni in association with accessories and detergents.


Accessories ‘Click 

& Clean’ 

Cleaning method


Car nozzle, 
auto brush, 
underchassis  nozzle,

Foam sprayer, 

Neutral car wash

1. Apply neutral car wash with the foam sprayer. Always start from 

the bottom and work upwards. Let neutral car wash act for at 
least 5 min.

2. Wash the car with the car nozzle, which has been optimized for 

quick and gentle cleaning of enamelled surfaces (the jet is wider 
and not so sharp). Start at the front of the car and work back-
wards to avoid water from penetrating by the door mouldings. 

3. Use the brush for removal of traffi c fi lm which is not removed by the 

nozzle. If the car is very dirty, apply neutral car wash again. 

4. Attach the undercarriage nozzle and clean undercarriage and 

wheel arches.  

5. Remove water from the surface of the car with the squeegee on 

the car brush. Make sure that all grains of sand etc. have been 
removed before using the squeegee. Wipe with a wash leather 
where the squeegee cannot reach.

Rims, alu-


Rim brush,
auto nozzle,
 alloy cleaning agent

Apply alloy cleaning agent with an automizer. Let it act for approx. 

5 min. and wash with the rim brush. For steel rims, use neutral car 
wash. Use the foam sprayer and wash with rim brush.

 Be careful!  The high pressure jet may damage the tyres. 




fl oors 
and other 
hard sur-




neutral detergent,
 Patio  Cleaner

Wash towards outlets or the like. On surfaces with moss or al-

gae you may start by applying Neutral detergent with the foam 
sprayer. Wash before the soap dries. Another more effective and 
quicker method is to use the Patio Cleaner. Thus you will also 
avoid splashes.



Wood Cleaner
Garden brush

Apply Wood Cleaner and wash before the soap dries. 
NOTE: Use the garden brush to clean off the dirt.








neutral detergent,
 Patio  Cleaner

Same method as for fl agstones, but be careful - bad joints and 

wood may be damaged by high pressure. You may choose only 
to use the Tornado


 nozzle. Adjust the distance (pressure) to the 

quality of the joints and the wood. Patio Cleaner can also be used 
on vertical surfaces. 



Underchassis  spray 


Wash the gutter with the nozzle. Always wash towards     

downpipes. Beware not to spray under the roofi ng.


of drain 
pipes etc.

Tube cleaner

Push the tube cleaner approx. ½ m (to mark) into a tube or drain 

and activate the trigger of the spray handle. The nozzle opening  
turning backwards will pull the cleaner through the tube. The 
 nozzle will break down the „plug“ and fl ush the dirt backwards.





Mount the water/sand blasting equipment and rust and paint   

is effi ciently and quickly removed. Beware not to damage the sur-
face to be sandblasted.





 PR nozzle

brush, neutral de-


Wash with high pressure and maybe a brush. You may use neutral 

detergent to remove moss and algae.





 PR  nozzle, 




 nozzle, multiangle 
adaptor, degreaser

Rinse the worst dirt off with the nozzle. Apply degreaser with 

the foam sprayer and let it act for approx. 5 min. Wash with the 
 nozzle. You may use the multiangle adaptor for hard to get at 
 areas to avoid splashing.

6  After using your pressure     


6.2  Winding up of elec-

tric cable and high 

pressure hose 

ways be carefully  wound 


1. Wind up the electric cable 

on the appropriate hooks. 

A built in clip secure the 

cable (1).

  The lower hook can be 

turned to release the 

electric cable. 

2. The high pressure washer 

comes in two models: A) 

with hook for storage of 

high pressure hose (14) - 

B) with a hose reel (13).

6.1  Storing the washer

The machine should be sto-
red in a frost-free room!

Pump, hose and accessories 

should always be emptied 

of water prior to storing as 


1. Stop the machine (turn 

the start/stop switch 

(1) to position “


” and 

detach water hose and 


2. Restart the machine and 

activate the trigger. Let 

the machine run until no 

more water runs through 

the spray gun.

3. Stop the machine, unplug 

and wind up hose and 


4. Place spray handle, 

 nozzles and other acces-

sories in the holders of 

the machine.

Should the machine by 

mistake be frozen, it will 

be necessary to check it for 




Frost damages are 

not  covered by the 


6.3 Storage of 


The standard accesso-

ries (spray gun (f), spray 

lance (a), nozzles (b) foam 

sprayer (c)) can be stored 

on the pressure washer.

The nozzle cleaning tool (d) 

and a Click & Clean brush 

(e) can also be stored on 

the  product.

electric cable and the high 

pressure hose should al-

WARNING! Always dis-

connect the electrical plug 

from the socket prior to 

maintenance or cleaning. 

To ensure a long and 

problem free working life, 

please take the following 


 Wash out water hose, 

high pressure hose, 

spray lance and accesso-

ries before mounting.

 Clean the connectors of 

dust and sand. Make sure 

that no sand or dirt is 

blocking the movement 

of the button on the Click 

& Clean spray lance.

 Rinse the detergent 

spraying attachment after 


 Clean the nozzles.

Any repair should always 

be made in an  authorized 

workshop with original 

spare parts.

7 Maintenance 

7.1  Cleaning of water 


fi lter

Clean the water inlet fi lter 

regularly once a month or 

more frequently according 

to use. Carefully loosen the 

fi lter with a pair of pliers 

and clean it. Check that it 

is intact before re-mounting 


The inlet fi lter must always 

be fi tted inside the water 

inlet pipe to fi lter out sand, 

limestone and other impuri-

ties, as they will damage 

the pump valves.

CAUTION: Failure to fi t 

the fi lter will invalidate the 


7.2  Cleaning of nozzle 

A clogging up in the noz-

zle causes a pump pressure 

which is too high. This is 

why cleaning is required 



1. Stop the machine and 

disconnect the  nozzle. 

2. Clean the nozzle.



The cleaning tool 

(11) should only be used 

when the nozzle is de-


3. Flush the nozzle back-

wards with water.
