Just a seasonal thought

Hands up all those with pressure washers?
Have you remembered to fully drain them before you put them away in the shed
/garage? ( pipes off turn on side to remove any water/detergent/whatever)
Probably a good time to check!

It cost me a new one a few years ago because I didn't get the last of the
water out and and it split the outlet connector - uneconomic repair

cost me a replacement s/h valve block for mine, since then I obey the rules
and run the water out of it. The instuctions say disconnect inlet hose and
open outlet and run for 20s to remove water.

Last night I drained the caravan water heater and the water flush for the
crapper... also the pipework (cost a busted shower fitting couple of years
ago).

10 minutes job but well worth the trip to Ma and Pa's to sort it.

I'm horrified.
You leave important things like tools where they can get cold and damp?
What do you have central heating for?

Bruce has a 3 phase steam pressure washer(got it as part of a deal with some
3 phase woodworking machinery) which he did exactly the same thing with, so
when he went to use it the following year, all is did was leak a large
amount of water everywhere. Cost him 100 or so to put right.

Nope, but I'm thinking of getting one.

Eh? This is the time I've year I'm more likely to use the thing, to
slosh the encrusting salt off. Rest of the year mud can stay, the rain
will wash it off over time.
