Water Cannon Pressure Washers


Water Cannon Pressure Washers



A Water Cannon pressure washer typically has several features that enhance its functionality and versatility. Some common features include:


1. Adjustable Spray Pattern: The water cannon usually allows you to adjust the spray pattern, ranging from a narrow, concentrated stream to a wider fan-like spray. This adjustability allows you to tailor the water flow to different cleaning tasks.


2. Flow Control: Many Models have a flow control feature that allows you to regulate the water flow rate. This is useful for controlling the intensity of the water stream based on the cleaning requirements.


3. Pressure Adjustment: Most offer pressure adjustment capabilities, enabling you to increase or decrease the water pressure as needed. This feature is particularly handy when dealing with delicate surfaces or when a more powerful stream is required for tough cleaning jobs.


4. Quick-Connect System: To easily attach and detach the Water Cannon from the pressure washer wand or hose a quick-connect system is often incorporated. This allows for convenient and swift changes between different nozzles or attachments.


5. Ergonomic Design: Water Cannons are designed with ergonomics in mind, providing a comfortable grip and easy maneuverability. This ensures that you can comfortably handle the water cannon for extended periods without fatigue.


6. Durable Construction: Given the demanding nature of pressure washing, Water Cannon's are typically built with durable materials such as stainless steel, aircraft aluminum or heavy-duty guage steel. This ensures longevity and withstands the high pressures and harsh conditions associated with pressure washing.


7. Safety Features: Some models may include safety features such as a trigger lock to prevent accidental spraying or a muffler heat guard to protect your hands during use.


It's important to note that the specific features may vary depending on the type and model of the Water Cannon. Visit

Leaking unloader?

 Leaking unloader? Check out those Banjo Bolts.

 

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to replace an unloadervalve with broken inlet banjo bolts on a General Pump TT9071 wall-mounted electric Water Cannon pressure washer:

1. Safety First: Before starting any maintenance or repair work, ensure that the pressure washer is turned off and unplugged from the power source. Also, release any pressure from the system by pulling the trigger on the spray gun.

2. Gather the Tools: You'll need a set of wrenches, pliers, a replacement unloader valve, new banjo bolts, thread seal tape, and a cloth or towel.

3. Remove the Old Unloader Valve: Locate the unloader valve on your pressure washer. It is usually attached to the pump. Use a wrench to loosen and remove the nuts or bolts that hold the valve in place. Be careful not to damage any surrounding components.

4. Disconnect the Inlet Banjo Bolts
: The inlet banjo bolts are the fittings that connect the water inlet hose to the pump. Use pliers or a wrench to carefully loosen and remove the banjo bolts. Be cautious as they may be corroded or tight.

5. Replace the Unloader Valve: Take the new unloader valve and carefully position it in the same location as the old valve. Tighten the nuts or bolts to secure the valve in place. Make sure it is properly aligned with the pump.

6. Install the New Banjo Bolts: Apply a thin layer of thread seal tape to the threads of the new banjo bolts. Insert the bolts into the inlet ports on the pump and tighten them using pliers or a wrench. Make sure they are secure but not over-tightened.

7. Check for Leaks: Once everything is in place, turn on the water supply and check for any leaks around the unloader valve and banjo bolts. If you notice any leaks, tighten the connections further or reapply thread seal tape if necessary.

8. Test the Pressure Washer: Plug in the pressure washer and turn it on. Pull the trigger on the spray gun to release any air from the system. The pressure washer should now be ready for use.

Remember, if you are not confident in performing these steps yourself, it's always best to consult a professional or contact the manufacturer for assistance. Safety should be the top priority when working with pressure washers or any other machinery.

Unloader Leak

1/22/2024

How to Locate a Leak

 

  • 1. **Safety First:** Before starting, make sure your pressure cleaner is turned off and disconnected from any power source. Ensure the washer is cool to avoid accidental burns and wear protective gloves for safety.
  • 2. **Inspect the Pressure Washer:** Start with a visual inspection of your pressure washer. Look out for any obvious signs of leakage like puddles under the unit or dripping water.
  • 3. **Hose Inspection:** Inspect the hose for any signs of wear, crack, or cut. These are common areas where water can leak. Also, check the connection points between the hose and the pressure washer. If the leaks are coming from here, it might simply be a case of tightening up your connections.
  • 4. **Check the Pump:** The pump is another possible source of leakage. Pumps can often leak due to worn seals which can be replaced if needed. If the pump is severely damaged, you may want to consider replacing the entire pump.
  • 5. **Inspect the Gun:** Check the spray gun, particularly where it connects to the hose and the nozzle. Reattach or replace these parts if you see water leaks.
  • 6. **Examine the Connections:** Finally, examine the water connections on the machine, including where water enters and exits the machine. Hot water washers typically have seals which can wear out over time leading to potential leak.



  • If you've followed these steps and are still having trouble locating your leak or if the issue persists after replacing the necessary part(s), don't hesitate to contact a professional or  customer service for further assistance. Remember, when dealing with equipment like a hot water pressure washer, safety should always be your main priority.

Why Use 93 Octane Gasoline?

 

Using 93 Octane Gasoline


**Importance of Using 93 Octane Gasoline in Water Cannon Pressure Washers with Overhead Valve Honda Engines & Issues with Ethanol**


Using the correct type of fuel for your pressure washer is a crucial element to ensure its optimal performance. This tutorial will explain why it is recommended to use 93 octane gasoline in your Water Cannon pressure washer fitted with an overhead valve Honda engine, as well as address the problems associated with ethanol.


**Why Use 93 Octane Gasoline?**


1. **Improved Performance**: Higher octane gas like 93 octane can better withstand high compression before igniting, which is optimal for engines like those found in Water Cannon pressure washers that run at high compression ratios. Improved compression leads to more power output and better engine efficiency.


2. **Protects Engine**: Additionally, use of high octane fuel helps prevent 'engine knocking' or 'pinking', which is premature fuel ignition in the combustion chamber. This is crucial to maintain the health of the engine and to avoid damages.


3. **Enhanced Lifespan**: Regularly using 93 octane gasoline can also help in extending the life of your engine. By reducing 'knocking' and running more efficiently, your engine will experience less wear and tear over time, leading to a longer engine life.


**What's the Issue with Ethanol?**


Ethanol-blended fuels are common, but they can create problems when used in engines like those in Water Cannon pressure washers:


1. **Decreased Performance**: Ethanol contains less energy per gallon than gasoline, which can result in decreased performance and reduced fuel economy.


2. **Potential Damage**: Ethanol is a solvent and can loosen debris lodged in fuel systems, leading to clogs. It may also cause corrosion in the fuel system, leading to further engine damage.


3. **Water Attraction**: Ethanol attracts moisture. This can cause phase separation in the gas tank where water saturates the ethanol and sinks to the bottom of the tank, leading to serious engine problems.


To ensure the performance and extend the lifespan of your overhead valve Honda engine, it's advisable to use 93 octane gas and minimize the use of ethanol-blended fuels. Always refer to your engine's manual for the manufacturer's recommendations on fuel types and proper usage.
