Question

Can this washer use bleach

I am interested in purchasing a pressure washer that can handle bleach as a cleaning agent. My 2 story home is white vinyl sided, and gets mildew + dirty. Have found that it takes bleach in order to remove/kill the mildew. So, I am only interested in a washer that can handle bleach. Thanks

This cold water pressure washer has a downstream detergent/chemical injector so bleach won't harm the pump. You can apply bleach, but it will be in a diluted concentration. The water to bleach ratio will be 15 to 1. The bleach would be applied using the low pressure detergent nozzle then washed off with a high pressure nozzle. Northern Tool doesn't carry pressure washers that will handle bleach traveling through the pump(for applying/pressure washing at high pressure) or units that would apply bleach in a higher concentration(all units will produce a 15:1 water to bleach ratio).
