A pressure washer’s water filter helps prevent debris in the water from entering the pump where they can damage or decrease performance. The water filter helps minimize damages and extends the life of your pressure washer.
A pressure washer operating at low pressure is typically caused by dirt in the pump. Spending a couple of minutes to rinse out the debris caught by the water filter will help your pressure washer from dirt build up and run at its best performance.
Over time, your gas-engine pressure washer’s water filter might need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. To continue protecting your pressure washer’s pump, replace the water filter.
