If you own an industrial or commercial pressure washer, you likely rely on it to keep your facility clean and well-maintained. However, like most machinery, ever the best high-powered pressure washers will need occasional repairs and maintenance once in a while.
If your industrial or commercial pressure washer is leaking, it can mean that there is an issue with one or multiple, seals on the pressure washer. You should stop using it ASAP until the seals can be replaced. A professional can inspect it and identify the seals that need to be switched out.
2. Reduced Pressure
You need your high-powered pressure washer to be working at maximum efficiency to properly maintain your facility. If there’s a noticeable drop in the water pressure, it likely means repairs are in order. This could be due to dirt in its pumping system or a faulty nozzle that needs to be replaced.
3. Pulsating Water
Your pressure washer should be issuing a steady stream of water while it’s on. If the water is pulsating, it often is due to an issue with its inlet and discharge valve. This is because while in use, this valve can often become clogged with some of the debris removed during the pressure washing process. Cleaning the inlet and discharge valve will likely take care of the issue.
4. Overheated Pump
Sometimes, your commercial or industrial pressure washer can suffer from pump overheating or cavitation. This happens when there’s insufficient water being supplied to the pressure washer and can be easily fixed. Simply refer to the owner’s manual to determine the volume of water per-minute your pressure washer needs to function at peak performance levels.
5. Too Much Pressure
When your pressure washer is running harder than normal, it’s often because the water you’re using is too hot, which is why it’s best to always use cold water rather than hot water. However, if you’re using cold water and it’s still happening, it could be because the sun has heated up the water running to your pump, or there’s another mechanical error that requires repairs.
