The black knob on the top of the pressure washer pump is an unloader valve. The pressure can be adjusted by turning that knob. You can also effectively decrease the pressure by using a different nozzle with a larger orifice.

It's called the unloader on p. 21 of the manual. You can read the direction into increase or decrease on its top.

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).

The NorthStar Pressure Washer will require 20% pressure over the rated pump pressure. The manual states that your hose should fill a 5 gallon pail in 100 seconds to accommodate this pressure washer.

Running the engine without using the pressure washer causes a heat buildup and will cause the pump to wear out faster. The time that the engine is running without spraying should be as short as possible. By relieving the pressure in the line every 30 seconds to a minute when not using the pressure washer will allow cooler water in the pump. The unit weight is 97 lbs.
