Questions & Answers for "FREE SHIPPING - NorthStar Super High Flow Gas Cold Water Pressure Washer - 5.0 GPM, 3000 PSI, Honda Engine, Belt Drive, Model# 1572042"

Question

GPM issue

Obviously this monster requires minimum of 5 GPM from a spigot or external water tank to work or else pump cavitation will occur. According to the manual, it states that "If the water supply available does not meet the above time-to-fill requirements, the nozzles will have to be downsized to #3.0 nozzles. Failure to downsize the nozzles will result in cavitation and damage to the pump. To order NorthStar #3.0 nozzles, part number 38531."

I have read time and time again that going to a much smaller orifice nozzle can cause the pump to over work and possibly cause damage. Is this a special pump that will allow a size #3.0 nozzle and have NO ill effect on the pump what so ever?? We are going from a factory supplied #5.5 nozzle to a #3.0.

The purpose for down sizing the nozzle is to keep enough back pressure on the pump to prevent cavitation. It is better for the pump to provide the proper amount of feed water. In a situation where that is not possible it is better to down size the nozzle then to allow cavitation.

Question

Can the pressure be lowered on this pressure washer from the 3000psi to 1500psi for use on more sensitive objects, such as houses?

The pressure on the NorthStar Pressure Washer can be adjusted somewhat with the knob that is located on the pump. By using a different pattern nozzle, the pressure can also be adjusted for more sensitive objects.
