We do not have a rain cap available for this hot water pressure washer. It can be covered when not in use to keep debris out, but cannot be used while the burner is running.

Turning the unloader valve will lower the pressure. While we do not test the minimum PSI, there is a flow switch in the burner that requires approximately 500 to 1000 PSI to in order to run the unit.

Is there a different Battery size (group) that will work with this unit?

The product manual asks for a 12 Volt, minimum 18 Amp/Hr. Automotive Battery (Group 75) -
And the diagram has the Battery post on top.

This NorthStar pressure washer will work with other 12 volt battery groups. Any 12 volt battery that has a minimum 18 amp/hr. rating, top post connections and fits in the 11-1/8”L x 7-3/4”W x 10-1/8”H battery compartment will work.

NorthStar Gas-Powered Wet Steam pressure washer will maintain the 2.5GPM no matter the temperature being used. The unit does not generate steam, it simply heats the water hotter than boiling and it turns to steam when the pressurized water hits the air.

You can use a water tank instead of a hose. Be sure the supply coming in is 1 GPM more than the output of the pressure washer, in this case 3.5 GPM.

A steam nozzle is designed to be used with higher water temperatures. The steam nozzle is to be used to clean objects that should avoid excessive moisture.
