GPM is more important than PSI. Use the correct chemicals and low pressure with high GPM is the key.

Thumbs up

You need a 4.0 or even a 5.5 gallons per min. to do any kind of commercial job with a pressure washer.
Tips with larger openings will get you the right pressure for the job.
Call Bob at Pressure Tek, he's one of the best in the pressure washing business...
