NOZZLE SPRAY PATTERNS

Red 0° Nozzle
This is a blasting nozzle. It delivers a very concentrated stream of water. Care should be used to avoid gouging wood or damaging fragile surfaces. Uses: Removing weeds from sidewalk cracks, stubborn stains and chewing gum from concrete, masonry, aluminum and steel, caked mud from equipment and cleaning lawn mower undersides

Yellow 15° Nozzle
This is a chiseling nozzle. The spray should be directed at a 45° angle to the surface and used like a scraper to remove paint, grease and dirt. Uses: Surface preparation (removing peeling paint and mildew stains), cleaning gutters and downspouts and bugs from trucks.

Green 25° Nozzle
This is a flushing nozzle. With a narrower spray pattern than the 40° nozzle and with more concentrated spray pressure, this nozzle is best suited for flushing dirt, mud and grime. Uses: Wet-sweeping leaves from walks, curbs and driveways, cleaning stable floors, washing swimming pool bottoms and cleaning barbeque grills.

White 40° Nozzle
This is a wash nozzle. It's wide spray pattern disperses the water pressure over a large area and is recommended for rinsing and moderate washing. Uses: Washing down aluminum siding, cleaning windows, washing vehicles, spraying sidewalks, driveways and patios.

NOZZLE SPRAY PATTERNS

The orifice size of the nozzle determines the operating pressure of your machine. As a rule of thumb, the smaller the orifice, the greater the restriction of water flowing through the machine. This causes the pressure to increase.

Use the table below to select the properly sized nozzle for your machine.
Determine the nozzle size by matching the operating pressure (PSI) of your machine to the Gallons Per Minute (GPM)
