If you want to see the assembly and explanation of all the parts, click below for that video I put up a few weeks ago. In today’s video, I’ll show you how the Pressure Washer works on different surfaces.
There are five included nozzles that store in the back of the unit. 0 degree Orange nozzle delivers a high pressure pencil point jet stream best for small, concentrated areas to remove tar, grease spots and caked mud. The 15 degree yellow nozzle is for intense cleaning on hard surfaces – to strip paint, mildew stains and rust from steel. The 25 degree green nozzle is good for home siding, brick patios, wood siding and driveways. The 40 degree gray nozzle is good for cars, trucks, boats and patio furniture. The black soap nozzle is for cleaning using detergent at a low pressure. The nozzles snap on to the spray wand easily. Just pull back to remove.
The unit has a GFCI plug which will prevent electrical shock in wet locations. It’s a great safety feature. To use the unit, plug it in. Attach the garden hose to your tap. Push the other end in and turn the adaptor counter clockwise to tighten. Make sure it’s not cross threaded to avoid leaks. Turn the unit to On and you’re ready to use the pressure washer.
I’m using the yellow nozzle to clean vinyl siding and it did a great job. Just took the mold right off. It also took the caked on dirt and mold from the side of my house effortlessly. I don’t know when the last time this siding was cleaned, it’s been that long. It will take time to do all of the siding but it’s easier than scrubbing by hand and cheaper than hiring someone to do it. If your house is higher than one story, you will have to get on a ladder to reach the top of your house. Moving the pressure washer wasn’t too bad. It has two wheels that make the move easier. The cord and hose might get in the way while moving so you have to be watchful of that.
When I used the green nozzle on this concrete wall, it didn’t work well. Here I tried the yellow nozzle and it worked great. It also took a little bit of the old paint off the wall. I might have gone over the same spot one too many times.
As you can clearly see, the yellow nozzle did an amazing job on my walkway. It’s nice to see the actual color of my walkway. It really shows the effectiveness of this Sun Joe pressure washer. I got the most use out of the yellow nozzle because everything I cleaned had caked on dirt and mold that hadn’t been touched in a very long time. With it’s total stop system, the pump shuts off when not in use to save energy. I didn’t find the pressure washer to be loud.
The gray nozzle is gentler and worked well on my patio furniture. I washed off the table and chairs very easily. You can see all the dirt is gone.
On aluminum alloy car wheels, I used different nozzles and none of them took the caked on dust off. It probably needs soap and a good scrub. However, the newer dirt came off using the gray nozzle.
Bird poop I’d rather not touch came off easily. This is baked on sticky tree sap that usually has to removed by hand with goop. It came off nicely with the pressure washer and saved a lot of time and effort. I find it’s easy to clean off dirt from my planters with the gray nozzle.
This pressure washer has many outdoor uses. It worked really well on the concrete, siding, car and furniture. It’s a good value considering the price and many uses. I hope you found this review helpful. Subscribe for more reviews of products you use at home. Thanks for watching.
