Hose reel for pressure washer
Achieving high pressure washer performance
Good pressure washer performance requires a good water supply, and best way to achieve this is with a good quality hose reel. A premium quality hose reel for pressure washer will undoubtedly improve the efficiency of the machine.
High flow rate
Using a low budget hose reel for a pressure washer will result in underperformance. A good domestic pressure washer, such as the Stihl RE90 may require an input of over 500 litres per hour. This requires a hose that is capable of allowing enough flow.
Gardena hose recommended
At Mincost we endorse Gardena hose reels for a pressure washer application. It's simply the best hose available. The Gardena hose is strong and durable, and is much less likely to allow restrictions whether on or off the reel. A simple hose upgrade from a squashed, kinked, twisted, low budget hose will improve pressure washer performance considerably.
Cheap hose will restrict flow
A poor quality hose pipe that collapses and kinks when in use will restrict the flow. When rolled on a drum, the hose could be flattened or twisted. Each kink or twist will reduce the flow to the pressure washer.
A restricted flow reduces the water supply to the pressure washer pump. Once this happens the pump will often cavitate – there is a vacuum where there should be water. You may have noticed the output fluctuating and sometimes reducing to a dribble - this is the result of cavitation. It’s not good for the pump, or your temper.
