Hello! My name is Grady Johnson, I’m a professional painter, and today I represent expertvillage.com. Okay, now we're going to talk a little bit about cleaning up the pressure washer. Now, this is rental unit so I want to be sure that everything is in place when I take it back. Now, the first thing I did was I grabbed these hoses and disconnected them from the couplings and stretch them all the way out, just like when we did when we first setup for painting. Once I have my hoses all stretched out, then I want to go ahead and make sure that my wand tips are back. I see I only have 2 here. There's one on the end here. Go ahead and pull that out, put it back in place. Now, I'm looking here and I should have 4 tips that I started, but I've only got 3. I know what it is. I left that other tip in my pocket from when I was doing the chlorine work. This is going to happen to you a lot. Especially, when you do chlorine. This isn't a tip you use a lot, so often will end up in your pocket. If you forget where it is, it's probably in your pocket. Put that back in place, do your final check. 1, 2, 3, 4. That's ready to go back. Move your wand out of the way, and then you want to go ahead and coil up your stinger. Now, I pulled that out of my chlorine and then I made sure that it wasn't all clogged up or anything with any trash. I try to return it the same way I found, so if it has gotten messed up, go ahead and clean it out a little bit. Well, that's all there is to it except for rolling up these hoses. This is everything that you need to know whenever you're cleaning up a pressure washer.
