It's not the equipment that makes a difference... It's the knowledge of water flow and chemistry.

Most homes washed in about an hour cleaner than the folks using high pressure and spending all day to do it.

Lowering pressure is done with changing tips. And yes I get the full 8gpm at 100psi.

Are all of those nozzles low pressure? If so, what is the difference between them? I viewed the youtube link. How do you get the water to the second story of a house with that pistol type wand?

Yes, all are low pressure tips. The differenc is the angles. We reach 2nd and 3rd story heights with the 0 degree tip.

This video demos the 0 degree low pressure tip.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NoU_t1p4Qs

This one shows me washing one without a gun or tips at all... Just a ball-valve.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZ9SWMmMX2k

Thanks for the info. Is the ball valve with a garden hose and using house water/pressure or is it attached to your pressure washer? I've tried a ball valve with a garden hose and it won't reach the top of our 2 story house.

That's on the pressure washer. Down-streaming soap.
