How To Winterize Your Pressure Washer

Winterizing an Electric Pressure Washer

Electric pressure washers are easier to winterize than gas pressure washers. You only have to protect the pump and not the fuel tank. Just follow these simple steps:

Run your pressure washer with clean water to flush detergents out
Turn off your pressure washer and disconnect it from your hose.
Spray the handle to release any pressure. Remove the hose, wand, and attachments.
Attach your pump saver to the water inlet and turn the knob on the bottle to the open position.
Turn on the pump with the power switch/lever until liquid comes out of the pump pressure outlet is a 100 percent pump saver solution.
You’re done!

Winterizing a Gas Pressure Washer

Gas pressure washers require a few additional steps than electric pumps because you need to secure the fuel.

Check engine and pump oil and replace if pressure washer has 10 hours or more of operation.
Drain or remove old gas, with a pump or disconnect the rubber hose.
Add fresh gas. with gas stabilizer into the fuel tank and run the pressure washer to circulate it through the engine.
While running the stabilizer through the engine flush out the pressure washer by running clean water through the detergent tank
Turn off your pressure washer and disconnect it from your hose.
Spray the handle to release any pressure. Remove the hose, wand, and attachments.
Attach your pump saver to the water inlet and turn the knob on the bottle to the open position.
Pull on the cord several times with the power switch/lever in the OFF position and until liquid comes out of the pump outlet is 100 percent pump saver solution.
If you Live In Warmer Climate

No matter your climate, you should consider using these steps if you don’t intend to use the washer in the next 30 days. By doing so, you protect the stability of your fuel and keep the seals from drying out.

Winterizing your pressure washer is a great way to ensure its longevity.

Other Pressure Washer Maintenance Issues To Consider
———————————————————-
There are three other items that you should consider staying on top of, they are:

Replacing the spark plug [gas models- replace yearly or after 100 hours of use].
Changing the engine oil [use 10w-30 oil].
Changing the pump oil [use 30w non-detergent oil].
Check, clean, or replace the air filter.
