If you have at least 3/4 inch supply line you'll be ok.
I feed my water into my tank, so the machine never starves for water.

Northstar Expert
It may not need a separate pump to run properly. The NorthStar Pressure Washer requires a constant 5 GPM minimum coming into the pump. If your tank can gravity feed 5 GPM or more, you don't need a pump. It you are less than 5 GPM you would need to use a pump.

This NorthStar pressure washer will requires approximately 5 gallons per minute from an auxiliary water source to prevent damage to the pump. If your setup will still provide a constant 5 GPM, it will work. As there will be some vibration, we recommend using flexible hose instead of rigid for plumbing.

Northstar Expert
For Short Term Freeze Protection:
1.) Drain water from feed tank.
2.) Drain water from the heat exchanger by extending the high pressure hose straight. Place the end of the hose at a level that is below the pressure washer. Remove the spray gun from the hose. Disconnect the plumbing that connects to the heat exchanger inlet. The water will flow out of the heating coil. This will protect the coil from freeze damage.
3.) Open both water inlet ball valves and remove the cap from the water filter. This will drain the pump and water inlet plumbing.
For Long Term Storage and Freeze Protection:
1.) Attach a feed tank or bucket to the water inlet (feed tank). See Installation section for Attaching a Water Feed Tank instructions.
2.) Fill feed tank with 5 gallons of RV antifreeze.
3.) Run the pressure washer in cold mode until RV antifreeze comes out the water outlet. Make sure excess antifreeze is disposed of safely. RV antifreeze will save the components from freeze damage and keep them lubricated.
4.) Disconnect spark plug cable. Make sure the engine start switch is OFF.
5.) Disconnect the battery and store it indoors.

This pressure washer requires the rerouting of the easy start valve so it discharges back to
the feed tank. This will aid pump priming on initial start up.
