THERMAL PUMP PROTECTION
If you run the engine on your pressure washer for 1-2
minutes without pressing the trigger on the spray gun,
circulating water in the pump can reach high tempera-
tures. When the water reaches this temperature, the
pump protector engages and cools the pump by dis-
charging the warm water onto the ground. This thermal
device prevents internal damage to the pump.

CLEANING TIPS

Pre-rinse cleaning surface with fresh water. Place de-
tergent suction tube directly into cleaning solution and
apply to surface at low pressure (for best results, limit
your work area to sections approximately 6 feet square
and always apply detergent from bottom to top). Allow
detergent to remain on surface 1- minutes. Do not al-
low detergent to dry on surface. If surface appears to
be drying, simply wet down surface with fresh water.
If needed, use brush to remove stubborn dirt. Rinse
at high pressure from top to bottom in an even sweep-
ing motion keeping the spray nozzle approximately
1 foot from cleaning surface. Use overlapping strokes
as you clean and rinse any surface. For best surface
cleaning action spray at a slight angle.
Recommendations:
• Before cleaning any surface, an inconspicuous
area should be cleaned to test spray pattern and
distance for maximum cleaning results.
• If painted surfaces are peeling or chipping, use
extreme caution as pressure washer may remove
the loose paint from the surface.
• Keep the spray nozzle a safe distance from the
surface you plan to clean. High pressure wash a
small area, then check the surface for damage. If
no damage is found, continue to pressure wash-
ing.
CAUTION - Never use:
• Bleach, chlorine products and other corrosive
chemicals
• Liquids containing solvents (i.e., paint thinner,
gasoline, oils)
• Tri-sodium phosphate products
• Ammonia products
• Acid-based products
These chemicals will harm the machine and will dam-
age the surface being cleaned.
RINSING
It will take a few seconds for the detergent to clear.
Apply safety latch to spray gun. Remove black soap
nozzle from the quick coupler. Select and install the
desired high pressure nozzle. NOTE: You can also stop
detergent from flowing by simply removing detergent
siphon tube from bottle.
