Pressure Washer Hoses By PSI
How to choose a pressure washer hose
Pressure washer hoses are not one-size-fits-all products. Finding the best hose for your application depends on a few factors.
Length & Diameter
Pressure washer hoses most commonly come in three diameters. 1/4” diameter hoses are usually reserved for low-PSI pressure washers in the sub-2700 PSI range. 5/16” diameter hoses are typically mid range, supporting 2700 to 3200 PSI. 3/8” diameter hoses are for heavier duty machines and can support up to 5000 or more PSI.
The length of your pressure washer hose should be determined by need. If you are able to keep close to your machine, you can get away with a shorter hose. Longer hoses are needed when you plan to clean an area far away from your pressure washer.
Connection Type & Material
Every pressure washer has a connector at each end. One end connects to your pressure washer while the other connects to the pressure washer wand. Check your pressure washer to see if it has a male or female connection and whether it screws or snaps in.
The material your hose is made of will determine how durable it is and how easy it is to use. PVC is a common, inexpensive material that does not bend or flex well, causing frustration for some users. Rubber hoses are more flexible but are heavy and can scuff pavement and floors. Polyurethane hoses are braided with steel and bend easily without leaving marks.
Pressure washers function with a high level of pressure running through the hose. It’s important to choose a hose that is capable of handling the pressure outputted by your machine. Using a hose that isn’t rated for your pressure output can cause damages and injuries. The Power Wash Store has hoses rated for these PSIs:
