Well, I made a mistake this year already. I forgot to go over my pressure washer when I put it away last fall, today my wife got a call for a pressure washing job so she figured she would save us some time and go start the job before I got home from work. The bad news is a bolt holding the pump tp the motor was loose, I got there grabbed the hose and starting working on the deck. 15 minutes later two more bolts left loose and the water started flying...Good news is the warranty is still good for 2 more weeks, I hope. Now I am in the process of making a schedule for all of my equipment so I don't miss any the next time.
