Now is the time you are probably thinking of getting your pressure washer out of storage. Whilst it has possibly not been in use over the colder months, it is very important to check for any possible damage before use.
Here are a few examples of what to check for...
Fuel/ oil leaks
Have a good look over your pressure washes and have a look if you can see any oil or fuel drips. The residue may feel slightly sticky to touch and be discoloured. If you do happen to find any fuel or oil leaks it is important to clean it off and keep a close eye on it to check that this isn't a continuous problem. If however this continues it is important to seek professional advice and get it repaired.
After you have connected your pressure washer to the mains water supply, closely inspect the machine to see if there are any leaks.
After you are confident that your machine does not have any sort of leakage, it is very beneficial to check over the rest of the machine for any damage.
Check that the nozzle does not have any debris left on it. If it does clean it carefully, to clean out any backlog of debris flush it with water and rinse away.
On the spray gun have a look at the trigger. Check for any cracks or damage that may affect its use. Check that the connection where the hose attaches is secure.
It is vital to be observant for any cuts, cracks, leaks or bulging caused from general wear and tear and kinking. Replace the hose if any of these issues affect your machine.
