Can a big surface washer (21"+) be run by a 5.5 machine? What are the factors I need to know when making a decision like this?
Some will, some won't. you can always test to make sure, but that takes time and I just soon hook to the tank and be done w it and eliminate worry. Also, what if someone in the house decides to use the water ti wash dishes, clothes, shower, etc....then they cut the flow to your machine. EVEN after you tell them they cant use the water.How come? I got the impression somewhere along the way, most outside water spigots are something like 6 GPM. Is this incorrect?
Every machine should bypass to prevent that.You should always be hooked to a buffer tank no matter what size pressure washer you are using. Otherwise, you let the machine run in bypass for a couple of minutes while you're scrubbing a gutter or talking to a customer and then you're replacing seals in a pump.
