This cold water pressure washer includes a thermal protector which keeps the pump from overheating when the trigger on the gun is not pressed. The thermal protector will protect the pump for a short amount of time(30 seconds or less). If you won't be pressure washing for longer than that amount of time, it's necessary to shut off the pressure washer/engine.

Question

How effective is downstream chemical injection vs. direct injection

Our B.Q. grill is used inside a screened in porch( F.G. mesh). Grease smoke accumulates on screens. How effective will downstream soap injection be for cleaning the screens and frame work? What about in other uses?

This cold water pressure washer features a downstream chemical injector. Downstream injection is very effective. The soap/chemical/detergent is applied at low pressure and rinsed/cleaned off with high pressure. It takes a little longer to apply the soap using a downstream injector than upstream, but it also uses less soap/chemical. When using an upstream injector, the soap/chemical runs through the pump which can speed up deterioration of the metal and rubber parts of the pump. It's necessary to run fresh water through the pump and rest of the pressure washer to clean the chemical out of it. Also, upstream injection will use more chemical than downstream. Both types are very effective ways of applying your soap or chemical, it comes down to how fast you need/want the chemical applied.

Honda approves up to 10% alcohol with the GX160 engine. But, would still recommend non ethanol fuel or a fuel stabilizer formulated with an ethanol protectant.

This unit comes with a downstream chemical injector. Chemicals or soap can be applied by using the low pressure nozzle while the pickup tube is submerged into the agent that is being applied.

Parts for the NorthStar Pressure Washer are manufactured in various areas. For example, the Honda engine is manufactured in Thailand and the Comet pump is manufactured in Italy. Any items that are not manufactured by NorthStar are tested to their breaking point to determine if they will provide the quality of service that the NorthStar products demand.
