Q: Model AR118 seems to be exactly what I am looking for to help with mold problem in bathroom. Is there a hose connection adaptor that can be connected to the faucet in sink? Would make it the perfect pressure washer for in-home use....
Thanks
Jim Davis

by James Davis from South Carolina on June 06, 2014

A: We don't recommend using a pressure washer in a confined space- a normal garden hose puts out around 30 PSI, so this unit, even though it's small in size, is putting out 50 TIMES that amount of water every minute. I'm worried that it would do more harm than good.

There are adaptors that will let you attach a garden hose to your faucet (it's how you would fill up a waterbed). Then you could use a garden hose spray head to get a strong spray without blasting the grout out of your tiles, or hurting yourself with the back spray.

Q: I have this unit and want to buy a aftermarket foam lance. What type of a brass fitting/type will I need to buy to use the foam gun with this exact model?
by Chris on March 21, 2012

A: Since AR has very unique fittings, you will have to purchase an AR brand foamer attachement.

Unfortunately we do not carry an AR foamer or any foamer that would work with the AR brand pressure washers.

Q: WILL A WATER SUPPLY FROM A GRAVITY FED DRUM WORK WITH THIS UNIT NEED TO WASH BIKES AT THE TRACK THANKS BOB
by BOB on February 25, 2012

A: No, more than likely it will not. This machine not only requires at least 2 gpm's of water coming into the machine, you also need about 40-50 psi going to the machines intake in order to get proper operation.

Your best option would be to look into purchasing a Karcher brand machine. After initially priming their machines, all of Karcher's pumps have the capability to accept water from a tank with minimum psi and gpm's.

I am posting a link to all of the Karcher machines we carry:

Q: Hi Bill!

I am in the designing and bidding process of modifying my heavy equipment service truck with a pressure washing capability.

I need you to find me the right model (please!)

It has to be electric powered(I have an onboard generator), medium to low pressure, but most important..... weather proof.

It will be mounted to my truck and exposed to the elements 24 hours a day. And a model that is easy to drain (freeze proof) would be a big plus.

What do you think sir? can you find me the perfect one?

by Anonymous on October 16, 2011

A: Unfortunately we do not carry any pressure washers that are fully weather proof, especially in an electric version. Your best option, from what we offer, would be to purchase either a Kranzle or DirtKiller brand electric pressure washer. Both of those brands use freeze proof pumps on their machine.

I am posting a link to both brands below:


Kranzle

DirtKiller

Q: Having trouble finding an electric that will work on a low pressure gravity feed. Seems some will not work at all, only on hose pressure. What models would be good for this?
by Ron from New Jersey on September 22, 2011

A: The only brands of pressure washers that could do what you are looking for is either Karcher, Kranzle, or Dirkiller. All other brands of electric pressure washers will NOT be capable of this. This AR machine will NOT do what you are looking to do.

I am posting a few links below to these 3 brands of products we offer:

Q: Is the unit (AR Blue Clean 1500) "new" or "refurbished"? Also, what is the warranty period and who supplies the warranty coverage?
by Tom from Pennsylvania on July 25, 2011

A: All pressure washers we offer are completely brand new, direct from the manufacturer. We do not even offer "refurbished" or "reconditioned" machines on our site. This model comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty. Any issues with the machine within that period would be handled by AR directly.

Q: I like the AR Blue Clean 1500 psi and I wanted to know if it can be mounted on a wall with the bracket that is attached? can I add a 50 foot hose and if you have them what is the cost?
by Monti Joines from Maine on June 15, 2011

A: In most cases you could mount this, but would not be a pressure washer I would deem suitable for mounting, it just does not have the power to add on long extension hoses. If you wanted to do something like this, I would suggest going with the AR610 or 620. None of these though are really meant to be put on a wall, but with the correct bracket could be done.

Q: Moving to a house on the water with a boat house, need something small to wash the bird droppings from the deck . Will the little 1500 unit do the job.
Thanks a bunch

by Bill Ducz from Florida on May 07, 2011

A: Yes, this would be fine for something like that. Worse case, you would have to add a little detergent from time to time.

Q: Is this unit powerful enough to remove grafitti with paint off a wooden fence? I have kids who keep using my fence as an art canvas, and need to find something that will pull the paint out of the wooden fence.
by Cindee Zentz from Colorado on May 05, 2011

A: To do a job like this, you really should use a gas pressure washer. More than likely you would want to use a rotary/turbo nozzle as well. Removing paint from wood can be a little tricky as well. In most instances you may end up damaging the wood, so you have to be real careful and you may not be able to get all of it.

Thanks,

Q: Can an extension cord be used or is it limited to the 25 foot power cord it comes with? How will this unit work for cleaning of a ski boat?
by Jeff from Idaho on April 04, 2011

A: Using an extension cord is not recommended with electric pressure washers. However, if the situation requires you to do so, you can use a 25' cord as long as it is an outdoor rated 14 gauge cord. You may increase the extension cord length up to 50' but then you have to increase the size of the cord to a 12 gauge cord.

AR is famous for their high performance pumps, and even in this economical hand held unit they put in a pump that's a step above most units in this price range.

The pump has 3 stainless steel plungers that are more durable than the typical wobble plate pumps on other units in this class.

If that wasn't enough to earn our top spot, there's also a new lineup of AR Blue Clean accessories to make your cleaning projects even easier.

Not What I Was Hoping For
The idea is great but the utility is bad. I have several other larger power washers so I thought having a smaller one would be great. The problem with this one is the hose connection. It is difficult to connect and it leaks water which trips the switch so that the machine cannot be turned on. Very frustrating. Also, all the parts are plastic and not well made. I would just stick with a little larger, more reliable unit.

Ana,
I apologize for the issues you are having. I would recommend reaching out to the folks at AR since the unit is still under warranty. They can be reached at 866-235-5112

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Ana,
Hello, This is Tom from Blue Clean Customer Service. Ana mentioned the garden hose adapter leaked when the connected to the garden hose and 118. The leaking problem was likely due to having the two adapters connected backwards. The clear adapter has Metric threads and must be screwed onto the water inlet on the 118. The blue/black adapter has garden hose threads and must attached to the end of the garden hose. If the clear adapter is screwed onto the end of the garden hose, it will leak as Metric and garden hose threads do not match and therefore cannot create a watertight fit.

It is unfortunate that Ana did not contact Customer Service at 866-235-5112 as we could have corrected the leaking problem and she would have had the chance to see what a great power washer the 118 truly is. :>)

Nice For The Price
This is a nice little pressure washer. Most of the pieces fit nicely on or in the unit, so it packs up really well. The thing is tiny, lightweight, and extremely portable. The power cord and the hose are plenty long, too, so you can get where you need to wash without any trouble.

There are two things I don't like. The clear adapter to convert the European hose threads to US threads sticks out from the unit, so you can't really leave it attached without possibly breaking it. It's also the... more

I Love The Compact Size.
I love the compact size. This is my third pressure washer and the biggest problem I had with the *other two *was the bulky size ... I had to drag them over uneven land and they had very little ground clearance. I have only used the AR Blue Clean one time, but I think it is just what I want.

I was going to take my older but working pressure washer apart and rebuild it into a much smaller unit like the AR Blue Clean machine, but when I saw your machine I decided it was not worth the effort.... more

I bought it to wash my sailboat at he dock. Sailboats collect lots of spiders, and their droppingsare hard to remove on the non-slip deck. This machine did the job. The service for parts was great, I would recommend it to any one for small jobs.

Good Pressure Washer
Needed something that wouldn't take up a lot of space yet do the job I needed. This product does it.

The only thing I don't like is that the water hose filter/adapter is plastic and it takes a wrench to take it off the hose after using it...definitely something that could break easily!
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Plastic Hookup To Hose
