Karcher pressure washer no pressure. There are a number of reasons why pressure washers might be lost, and these problems either need to be fixed or prevented in the first place if possible.

Try making sure that the high-pressure hose is not kinked, leaking, or has any clogs inside it whatsoever.

It’s also important that your garden hose isn’t kinked or is blocked in any way as well. Be sure to turn on all water sources, including sprinklers, fire hydrants, etc.

And this may include even checking to ensure you didn’t forget to turn something certain types of machinery off, like pumps for example, so that they’re not running during watering hours.

These machines also tend to suck up a lot of water as opposed to letting it go through their system without anything leading to more wasted natural resources by having an abundance of drain yards where the water eventually makes its way back out into nearby rivers, streams, and lakes.
