Weather – How it Affects Your Power Washer
At Rhinowash, we understand that business doesn’t just stop when the weather gets freezing. We also know how difficult it can be to motivate yourself to work when it’s cold, wet, or windy outside and all you want to do is stay warm indoors.
But what do you do if your equipment also decides to take a snow day, and won’t work in the cold weather? In this blog we explore the different ways the winter weather can affect your power washer, and how we can help.
Common cold weather issues
- Frozen Water
If your water supply isn’t insulated and isolated, it may become frozen which would stall any use of the pressure washer until the water pipe thaws. In especially cold winter days when temperatures don’t get above freezing, this could mean your pressure washer could be out of use for days.
- Frozen Machinery
Without proper protection, pressure washers are vulnerable to frost. This can cause water in the pipes and components to freeze and burst which can be very expensive to fix. As a result, any jobs that require a pressure washer can be brought to a standstill.
- Frozen Accessories
In sub-zero temperatures, unprotected gun-hose and wash-lances freeze and are often unusable for hours until they thaw, which commonly results in costly repairs.
How can we help?
We understand that all of these issues are prevalent in many pressure washers on the market. That’s why we designed ours to be extra-resistant to sub-zero temperatures.
Our pressure washers can be sealed away in insulated and weatherproof enclosures which keep them safe from the most significant cold temperatures we might face, as well as any accidental damage from mishandling.
We also have automatic frost protection to save you costly frost damage to hoses and lances. All of this ensures that you can keep your business up and running smoothly, even over the winter period.
