You have probably seen pressure washers at your work site, mechanic shop or even your local car wash and have thought how nice it would be to have the convenience of one at home. More recently you may have heard that several people have bought them to use at home and so now are considering buying one but before you do, it is probably best to first look at some reviews for pressure washers as, today there are a very wide variety of types and models with differing amounts of pressure being attainable.
The ones that you had probably originally seen at work or where ever, were more than likely gas powered pressure washers but now there are also electric pressure washers available and whilst not so powerful, are cheaper and still capable of fulfilling all the tasks you may have for one around your house. The best electric pressure washer solutions can attain pressures of up to 2000 psi which, although not as high as the 2300 to 4200 psi that the gas powered washers can provide, are still a far cry from the 10 psi that you were previously getting from your hose attached to a faucet or even the 40 psi you may have got if you attached a spray gun to that hose.
Apart from the obvious help a pressure washer can afford to the washing of the car, it can also help when it comes to cleaning the sidings or the regular chore of washing down the driveway and even help on those rare occasions when your gutter gets blocked. So there is no doubt that even the smallest of these pressure washers can be of assistance around the house and so are perhaps worthwhile having, a heavy duty gas powered one may not be the ideal solution for your home. This means that instead of having to pay the $299 plus for a powerful gas version, you may only have to pay between $70 and $270 for an electric one but remember, the gas powered ones were mainly designed for industrial use and so were built to withstand heavy usage whilst the smaller electric ones may not have been and so, although you may well want to save money by buying an electric one as you believe that one of those will provide you with enough power to make all the tasks that you will put it to, easy; you may want to look at the reviews and choose an electric one that has been found to be durable, even if it is a little more expensive and thereby saving you having to buy a new one again next year.
Both electric and gas pressure washers are becoming popular as household equipment and as their popularity grows, so will the number of models available and so if you buy one this year or even next, studying a review of many of the washers that are available can both save you money and ensure that you buy one that is capable of doing all the tasks that you have in mind for it.
