Blue Clean 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer w 3-in-1 Nozzle
Nice Little Washer
I was looking for a washer that wouldn't burn out my well. This has enough power to do my sidewalk, driveway, lawn furniture and more. (We have hundreds of yards of concrete & I ordered the additional attachment for large jobs from the mfg. It was at my home in 3 days and It works like a charm.) I've read the other reviews regarding the power. I might be crazy, but I just plugged it into a regular outlet and It's fine. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the odd arrangement on the unit if I want to use a cleaner with it. It might be nice to have a container piggy backed on the machine that you can just put your cleaner into and it's siphoned into the machine vs. the short hose that draws from a container. If someone doesn't have the unit, what I mean is that there's a piece of short plastic (I think it's 15" long) and it's located on the lower backside of the washer. It gets pulled out of the unit and then you have to put the end of the tube into a shallow pan/bucket that has the detergent in it. The hose is too short to stick into a bottle of detergent and have it reach the bottom of the bottle. Plus, if you move the washer, you have to move the detergent along with you since it's separate. Not sure if that's clear or not, bottom line, it's annoying. If you're just using water, there's no issue.
Haven't Even Used It Yet And Am Worried
Thought this is what I wanted, but just took it out of the box since it has finally warmed up. Wish we had been told in the demonstration that you could not use an extension cord and the only GFI outlets I have are in my bathroom! How is that supposed to reach anywhere? Certainly not very good reviews on this and too late to send it back. So very disappointed and a waste of money. What on earth has happened to the QUALITY in QVC?
Surprising Little Work Horse
I was in need of a pressure washer, so I gave this one a chance
Assembly was straight forward, although I found the instruction manual to be small. I mean that the pictures and instructions are small and difficult for my 55+ year old eyes to read, but I read the manual from cover to cover prior to assembling.
After assembling according to the instructions, I did not have a lot of faith in this washer. However, after running it for eight straight hours, I was really surprised. This little washer cleaned like a pro. It cleaned my gutters, outside furniture, outside carpet, Barbecue grill, patio, carport, driveway, riding mower, generator, and washed my car and truck. It never even acted like I was over working it.
I like the three position nozzle. It made switching between spray patterns easy. Just be careful. Do not point the two high pressure nozzles at anything soft as it will damage soft items.
Overall, I am very pleased with this little work horse. I tried my best to overwork it, but it hung in there quite well. The only complaint I have is the storage location of the handle and trigger. That could have been made either different or better.
The one thing I would tell any one that buys one. READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL. There is some important info that must be followed, or you may be unknowingly damaging your machine.
I bought a year ago only used it 4 times and it is not working anymore it just sputters the water out.I am very disappointed in this product.
Went to use this on our boat for 2nd time ..Had not used it since tried it out when I bought it .( stored in a dry garage.).... Hi strong smell of electrical.part. would not work after about 5 mins ..just stopped l.. will not work at all now ...Warrenty not much good either..Should last a bit longer than 2nd use and only a few days over 12 months ...Do not waste money on unit ...
Little machine big impact
I must say when I received the box, I was skeptical. It looked too small to do the job. I was very pleasantly surprised! I had to clean my driveway and the sidewalk all the way around my property and this machine did a nice job with very little effort. The only downside, if it has one, is that the water hose connection leaks a little, but not enough to make me send it back.
best customer support ever
I had sent this power washer to my mom and finally had a chance to put it to together for her on a recent trip. Very lightweight unit and parts seemed to be high quality, but unfortunately the unit would cut out after turning it on. This is where my review comes it. I called the customer support number for this product and the technician quickly determined that I had a GFI plug issue and said to keep the unit for parts and to email the purchase information to him for a replacement unit. I di that and got an email right back saying a new unit was being shipped out. I have bought items on line for years, but have never encountered better customer service! Above and beyond. If there is a problem, this company makes it right without any hassle.... OUTSTANDING!!!
Very low pressure
I bought this last year and just tried to use it this week. My water hose has more pressure than this washer does. I wish I could send it back.
Skip the blue clean
I bought this in March & did not use until early June, due to our New England weather. My largest complaint is the length of the nozzle that fit's into the soap dispenser - it's very short (& you have to insert this nozzle into the washer fluid) which is frankly ackward to try & keep the short nozzle in the fluid to wash whatever your item is! I have a small house, and wanted something non-cumbersome. I would have returned this, had it not been I purchased this item in March and did not first use it (to test it) until June, nearly 2 months later. One note to manufacturer - you should not have to buy an 'extender' with this washer as a accessory to use it - make the washer nozzle longer for the consumer's use. Expected more for the $119.00 I spent!
Excellent little power washer
I purchased this last year, normally we would have to rent a power washer when we have to re-stain our deck and re-paint our picket fence. I was very skeptical when I saw this, but I had a car accident a couple of years ago and I am limited as to what I can do and I thought that being so light weight this may be something I could handle and it sure was. It was light, easy to move, and the power, while not as much as a large power washer, did the job quite well. We also are on well and septic and the large power washers would burn out our well pump, this did not even effect it one bit. I give this five stars and I am not sure why others did not have the good pressure with this machine but our experience was very positive.
Solves a lot of outdoor problems
I bought this so I never have to rent another power washer again. Although yardwork is not my favorite, this sure helps.
It's small so it doesn't take up much room in the shed. Used it to clean patio furniture and deck of boat. I didn't want something that would take the paint off an object or cause wood to splinter up. We were pleased with it.
