More specifically, all of the attachments and tools that are required for you to properly use this electric pressure washer are outlined and delineated with clarity. To set up and use this electric pressure washer, the only thing that you need to do is plug it in, and then you need to take the hose attachment and attach it to your garden hose water line.

When you have done that, you can then turn on the garden hose water line, and water will flow directly into the electric pressure washer. As that happens, all of that water will flow through an elaborate system that increases and enhances the pressure of the water that is flowing through the electric pressure washer.

All of the water will then flow out of a large hose that is connected to a nozzle.

To make use of the water that is flowing through the electric pressure washer, the only thing you need to do is take that nozzle and hold down the trigger. From that, water will spray out of the nozzle and onto the surface that you are pressure washing. But, what really makes this electric pressure washer great, is the fact that there are five different spray tips that you can attach to this nozzle.

Each one of those five different spray tips is designed for a particular pressure washing task and a particular water pattern. For example, there is one spray tip that sprays water out in a straight line, similar to the “Jet” setting on a garden sprinkler.

There are other spray tips that spray water in a less direct and concentrated manner, so that a larger surface can be pressure washed in a shorter period of time. Since these different spray tips are designed for different kinds of water patterns, it allows you to pressure wash many different kinds of surfaces in whatever manner that you require.

On the front of the electric pressure washer, there are various buttons that allow you to adjust the features and settings of this electric pressure washer. One of these settings is that of being able to adjust the overall pressure of the electric pressure washer.

There are two pressure settings that you have access to; you can set the pressure to 1450 PSI, and you can adjust the pressure to 2030 PSI. With these pressure settings, you can use less pressure for simpler pressure washing tasks, and more pressure if you are dealing with an especially thick mess that low pressure is simply not ideal for cleaning.

Each one of the different features and facets that were mentioned above has been designed in a manner that allows you to easily understand how they work and what they do. As you would expect, this makes it very easy to actually use the electric pressure washer for all of your pressure washing tasks.

With the power that this electric pressure washer offers, you are capable of pressure washing many different surfaces and just about any kind of mess. Much of this is due to the exceptionally powerful motor, which gives you two good pressure options. But, the spray tips that Sun Joe has included are also a key factor in giving you the power that you need to wash with speed and efficiency.

If there is a single flaw with this electric pressure washer, it’s the fact that some of the components aren’t nearly as durable as they could be. Some parts of this electric pressure washer are made from a rather flimsy plastic material, which is easy to break.
