For example, if you select a nozzle with a narrow sprayer (a low-grade nozzle), you'll get more pressure in PSI on the sprayer, but in a smaller area. With a wider sprayer (a higher-grade nozzle), you'll get less PSI but more coverage. Rotary nozzles (sometimes referred to as turbo nozzles) can have up to ten times the cleaning power of a normal pressure washer nozzle. They offer powerful washing with circular motion, when rotating zero degrees at high speed.
Because it rotates with a small diameter, it provides superior blasting power. These nozzles are used for stains or persistent dirt, for preparing paint, removing paint, cleaning walls and much more. The rotating cover cleaning nozzle is a novelty on the market. This nozzle also uses a zero-degree nozzle, but its rotating action enlivens the water jet so that it is less aggressive on the surface being cleaned.
The rotating deck cleaning nozzle is ideal for cleaning more delicate or porous surfaces, such as wood, where deep cleaning is needed to remove dirt, but if applied too much, it will damage the surface. If you're working on a surface that you've never cleaned before, first try a 40° pressure washer nozzle in a place that doesn't get in the way. When you see the PSI rating of a pressure washer, that maximum rating was reached with the 0° spray nozzle. It goes without saying that you should wear closed-toed shoes when using a pressure washer, and be very careful that the 0° toe never touches any part of you or anyone else.
A simple nozzle change could turn your less powerful pressure washer into a high-pressure cleaning machine. Nor should you use this pressure washer tip in particular on painted surfaces, coatings or wood, as it can easily remove coatings and damage softer materials. The trick to choosing the right pressure washer nozzle or tip is to find the widest nozzle you can use that still cleans the surface effectively. This means you can quickly clean larger areas with a higher pressure level, as you get pressure and coverage.
It should be noted that moving away from the surface with a nozzle of a certain grade reduces the pressure on it even more. Choose the right nozzle and almost no matter the PSI and GPM of your pressure washer, you'll get the cleaning you want, because the nozzle is what creates pressure in the pressure washer. The yellow nozzle of the 15° pressure cleaner works great for difficult stains, such as mold and mildew, on PVC fences. The quick-connect nozzle is actually how pump companies want you to adjust the pressure and flow of your pressure washer.
Today I'm going to show you how to match the nozzle of a pressure washer (also called a spray tip) to the cleaning surface to ensure quick and complete cleaning without damage. Use a red 0° nozzle only to reach high areas, such as ceiling lights, where the additional pressure gives you better access. Most pressure washers have an integrated detergent tank or allow a hose to be connected directly to a detergent container.
