Pressure washers are grouped according to the type of energy they use. They can be gas, electric, diesel, petrol, ultra-high pressure, hydraulic high pressure, and high pressure steam cleaners. There are also special low-pressure washers and cleaners for specific types of jobs.

The �pressure� comes from water jets that are pressurized at 100-200 times the air around us. This measurement is called pounds per square inch, or psi, typically 3,000 � 5,000 in most pressure washers. Water is taken in through a standard hose, the pressure is increased through the pump and the water is expelled. The high pressure loosens the particles from the surfaces you are cleaning. In addition to the pump, pressure washers has various standard parts and accessories designed for the job you need to do. Ideal Tool supplies and repairs these parts, including:

  • Water inlet
