In this clip we're going to show you how to hook up the wand to the hose, and the hose to the pressure washer. There's these one-step snap little clip, little washer. Let me show you that again. The hose fits in there snugly; you release the little washer on there so it clips right in there. It also does the same thing at the pressure washer. If you notice here, we already have the hose hooked up so that's where the water intake enters the pressure washer. And here we're going to hook in the clip on the bottom, make sure it clicks, that was good. And also check the hose, make sure your hose, it's very important there's a lot of pressure coming through this hose. It's important to check the hose, if it shows any signs of wear, get rid of it. This is my machine, so it's a new hose that I have. Normally, you can rent these pressure washers and they normally come, the hoses are pretty much pretty good.
