Hi my name is Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village. Today we are going to talk about the proper use and maintenance of a pressure washer. As I mentioned earlier the pressure washer that we are using today is of a industrial grade. As well as the hose that came with this pressure washer is a industrial grade as well. This is a stainless steel braided and case hose. It is very, very durable and it is capable of holding four-thousand psi. Smaller units that you might find at do it yourself warehouse or home improvement warehouse. I have a smaller hose that is not capable of withstanding as much pressure. Mainly because they are braided nylon hose rather than a braided steel. They are smaller in diameter because they are not carrying as much water in there and as much pressure. But this one is a heavy duty hose yet it is stainless steel and somewhere in the range of a hundred dollars.
