Discover how Hotsy high pressure washers save on water usage
There are many benefits to using power pressure washers as opposed to a traditional garden hose. Among the major benefits is the ability to cut down on waste water. With the ever-increasing price of water and the growing need to cut back on usage, now it's more important than ever to improve pressure cleaning efficiency.
Hotsy pressure cleaning equipment saves water in two ways. First, our pressure washers use less gallons of water per minute. The flow of water out of the typical garden hose faucet is 8 gallons per minute. When you use a standard spray gun, you can reduce the flow from 8 gallons per minute to about 5 gallons per minute. In doing so, the pressure of the water increases from 10 PSI (pounds per square inch) to 50 PSI.
When you reduce the flow of water from 8 gallons per minute to just 5 gallons, you automatically increase the pressure. The more pressure you have, the stronger the stream (up to five times stronger with a garden hose spray nozzle), which means faster, more efficient cleaning. The faster you clean the less water you use—it's that simple.
Now, when you choose a Hotsy pressure washer, you can increase the PSI by leaps and bounds over a standard hose. The average pressure washer uses 2 to 3 gallons of water per minute. The pressure washer pump creates intense pressure—generally about 1500 to 2000 PSI
This high-pressure water stream quickly and easily blasts away dirt, grime, and debris, greatly reducing the time needed to complete a cleaning job. When you complete the cleaning job quickly, you use less water. When you increase the pressure and reduce the gallons of water used per minute, you save water. A Hotsy pressure cleaning system can reduce your water usage by at least 75 percent or more!
