Pressure Washers – Rent or Buy?

Pressure Washers make short work of many cleaning projects.

  • Home, private owner use Pressure Washer from Lowe’s, Home Depot, or similar home improvement stores cost between $300 to $500.
  • Good, commercial grade Pressure Washers can be found for less than $1000.

Frequent causes of problems with Pressure Washers are old fuel, loose electrical connection, or the water pump.

Most private use pressure washers are built with a pump designed to last from 30 to 40 hours before the first operational problem happens. Then the bearings go out, and it locks up.

Unfortunately, the cost of a durable replacement pump is $150 to $200, and then there is the cost of labor for replacing the pump, and any other repairs to your pressure washer.

Of course, if clients just want to replace the failed pump with another one designed to only last 30 to 40 hours of use, we can do that too.
