With the winter and cold here, you need to know how to properly prepare and protect your Landa pressure washer from the freezing and colder temperatures. Without proper winter maintenance and preparation, a pressure washer can be seriously damaged and even break.
At Crown Cleaning Systems, we’re always here to provide guidance on equipment maintenance and more. So, follow these simple steps to make sure you and your pressure washer are ready for when the cold winter weather hits.
How to Store Your Washer
Ideally, you should try to keep your Landa pressure washer in a room or area that is heated. This will prevent any potential freezing of left-over water that still may be in your washer. Since water expands when it freezes, this can cause the pump and other parts to break.
While it may be tempting to leave it in an outside shed, cold winters like we get here in Cleveland will always bring freezing temperatures and cause potential issues for your machine.
Preparing Your Pressure Washer for Winter Hibernation
Piggybacking off the above tip, if you either don’t have a heated area for your washer or will not be using it over the winter, the first thing you should do is fill your float tank with antifreeze (once it is empty of course). Then take off the wand tip and continue to redistribute the antifreeze through your washer until there is nothing left in the tank.Doing this will ensure that your plumbing and pump do not freeze over the winter.
Check your oil levels and add any oil to the engine if needed. Be sure you also add a bit of fuel stabilizer and let the motor run for a few minutes. This will make running your engine in the summer or spring for the first time a bit easier.
Detach the gun and hose, and your Landa pressure washer is ready to hibernate over the winter months.
