Now that we’ve covered the two main topics of this writeup, we’ll quickly go over a few accessories that we offer for our pressure washer setups.
Pressure Washer Tips
Pressure Washer Tips most often come in four main degree settings with standardized color coding. Starting from the highest and safest, the 40° White Tip has the widest fan pattern and is used for pre-rinsing dirt and mud from the exterior of the vehicle, as well as for rinsing off soap residue after washing. The 25° Green Tip is for more aggressive surface cleaning with a slightly tighter spray pattern, but it is still suitable for use on vehicles at a safe distance of 18-24 inches away from the surface. The Green Tip can also be used to clean siding, decks, and other areas around the outside of your home or garage. The 15° Yellow Tip is even more aggressive with a tight spray pattern, mainly used on metal and concrete surfaces, or to strip sealants and paint from wood surfaces - it can damage some types of wood. Always test this tip first, and use it from a far distance if you are going to use it on a vehicle. The 0° Red Tip delivers an extremely powerful pinpoint stream mainly used for cleaning concrete or removing weeds from sidewalks. It can cut through wood and remove paint from your vehicle, so it should NOT be used for cleaning your vehicle - not even to attempt to remove road paint.
Swivel Extension Pressure Washer Wand
Our Snub Nose Handle is great for how compact and easy it is to hold and use, but in some instances you may need more length on the Snub Nose Handle, such as reaching up into an engine bay, roof, wheel well, or connecting to our Undercarriage Cleaner. This is where the Swivel Extension Pressure Washer Wand comes into play as a great addition to your pressure washing setup. Manufactured by MTM Hydro Parts, this 20-inch pressure washer attachment has a secure grip area, slight 15° bend, and 1/4" stainless steel quick connect fittings at each end for no risk of rust or corrosion for the life of the tool. The Swivel Extension has maximum ratings of 4100PSI, 10.5GPM, and 300°F water temperature, so it will more than handle both of our pressure washer options with ease.
When combining our Undercarriage Cleaner with the Swivel Extension Pressure Washer Wand and your pressure washer, you have the perfect setup to blast away dirt, mud, and debris from the underside of your vehicle. The Undercarriage Cleaner uses four 45° jets along with wheels, a stainless extension tube, and a rolling swivel to let you pressure rinse underneath your vehicle. The four jets distribute the pressure evenly, so for example, if your pressure washer is outputting 1600PSI, each jet will output 400psi of water pressure. By rolling the tool back and forth under the vehicle, you can reach and clean hard to access areas like frame rails, exhaust, suspension components, and anywhere else that dirt, grease, salt, and other contamination may build up - even on most lowered vehicles with low ground clearance.
