Hi. I'm scratch building a pressure washer using a Comet BXD2831G pump. If I don't plan on using any type of detergent, is it OK (or manditory) to plug the detergent intake to keep it from sucking air? I would use a short piece of hose over the intake with a screw in the opposite end. Also, is it possible to set the pressure by ear? If so, what should I listen for? Thanks for your help!


No need to plug the injector because under pressure (internal force/pressure) keeps valve shut. It only opens when large nozzle (black tip) is used lowering internal pressure causing siphon effect. Some chemical injectors have a thumbwheel ... Comet GXD2527G Pressure Washer Pump

Hi, I have a one year old karcher k.2.360, which has worked fine up unitl now. However, when I tried to use for the first time in several months, the detergent feed doesn't work.

Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2 months and it started leaking oil from the pump during use. Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely because I was using quick connects on my garden hose coupling and that was restricting the water flow making the pump overheat. They said never to use quick connects on the garden hose unless the opening is at least 5/8". Does anyone make such a quick connect? I hate having to screw the garden hose o

Hi, I have a Karcher K3 pressure washer. 18 months old, used maybe 6 hours total. For the past 3 hours of use the compressor/pump seems to cycle audibly but pressure at outlet hose seems constant, hence I did'nt worry. Now it does not start with switch on. I now hear a buzzing sound from the unit. The unit was last used 6 weeks ago.

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.
