Best Electric Pressure Washer Wands and Extensions

A lot of people purchase a pressure washer and then feel a little disappointed by the fact that it will not reach all of those “hard to reach” areas of their home. For instance, perhaps you purchased a 2000 psi electric pressure washer feeling that you could wash the pollen off your home, and then you realized that it wasn’t quite strong enough to reach the second story. This does not mean that you need a new pressure washer. It simply means that you may want to upgrade your wand.


What to Look For in a Pressure Washer Wand

One of the most important things you need to look for in a wand is how much it weighs. An extension wand is designed to help you reach areas that you would not normally be able to clean with a standard wand. This could easily mean that you spend a lot of time holding it above your head, spraying high up areas of your home. You would not want to have to hold something that was heavy in that position. Along with this, maneuverability should also be a primary consideration.

How easy it extends and how easily you can control the spray settings should also be something you learn about before you purchase. Most pressure washer wands and extensions are easy to use. They connect easily, they adjust with a slight twist in one direction or the other, and in some cases you may also want to consider having a wand that can have other attachments added to it, such as a gutter cleaning kit.

The type of material it is made of should be considered. If you have a hot water pressure washer or you use a lot of detergent, you may want a stainless steel wand. If you purchase a telescoping wand, most are going to be made of aluminum. The standard, cold water pressure washer wands are made with a variety of materials and work fine.

Choosing the Right Type of Wand

You need to choose a wand that works for your pressure washer. This is not always easy considering there are such a large variety of wands, extensions, and pressure washers. If you have an electric pressure washer that is rated for 1600 psi, a gas pressure washer wand that is rated for 4000 psi may not be the upgrade you are looking for. In this case, you may want to look for an extension wand that is designed for the pressure washer you own, such as a wand that the manufacturer of your pressure washer recommends. A lot of pressure washers use only the wands that hook up or connect using a specific connection style. At any rate, it is always important to check with the manufacturer before you purchase an extension wand.

Beyond that, you will discover that there are wands that telescope out to reach even higher, there are foam lances for use with detergents, wands that have a pivoting nozzle, and wands that are designed to clean a flat surface. Each of these different wand types are great for cleaning certain things. Before you purchase, you should have some idea of the job you want for it to be able to do.

With any luck at all, even if this does not show you the exact wand you want, you will find the one that would work the way you want for it to.
