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:

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.

Missing Parts
Pretty disappointed. I received the electric Power washer and the wand Assembly was missing. Parts 3, 4, 5.The Adjustable spray nozzle, Turbo Nozzle and gun. In the manual a part referenced as a lance adapter is missing.

The manual is miss-numbered so in essence I have nothing past the trigger included.

Great Power Washer
Use it on my 26' Sea Ray Sundancer boat, fits in the stern compartment easily with no problem. does a great job.

The spot where the power cord wraps up needs to be larger to accommodate the long power cord. I used the area where the high pressure hose is to be wrapped up, to wrap the power cord.

Great Little Machine
I read the reviews on this machine after having a terrible other pressure washer. I pressure washed the grease off of a 35 year old tractor so I could paint it.

I had a little trouble with the quick disconnect but I resolved that issue with a little thinking. But after that it has been a pleasure to work with it

Works Well
I did not have any problem with the assembly. Washer worked very well for my sailboat and fits in my dock box. Fittings require a little finessing as they are plastic. But no leaks. Careful not to force anything:)' Already threw out the hose inlet and replaced with a $4 brass one. Works fine.

I didn't find it very noisy at all. I like the "on demand" that comes along with electric pumps. You can leave the pump on and ready while your scrubbing those tough spots.

Thomas,
I'm glad you like your pressure washer, but I'd like to remind you that page 6 of your Owner's Manual says "NEVER allow the unit to run with the trigger release off for more than one minute. Resulting heat buildup will damage pump". The unit depends on water running through it to keep it cool.

The "auto off" function is great for changing wands and re-positioning the electrical cord, but leaving it without water running through it for longer than that will shorten the life of your pressure washer.

Turning the unit off when you walk away is a good habit that prolongs the life of your electric pressure washer.

I Like It A Lot
I work at a boat rental shop and we are running it all day long. Having this power washer at work makes life a lot better- it is a bad ass little dude. It takes the dirt off the boats but leaves the paint on, it is so easy to use.

It works from a pump in the lake no problem... it is great little power washer- thank you.

This thing is noisey and it says 1500 psi but I doubt that very much very underpowered and weak!!!

Jason,
This unit comes with a 1 year Factory Warranty, but before you call AR toll free at 866-235-5112 to arrange for service or replacement, please make sure the unit is getting enough water.

Pressure washers are designed to work on city water, not wells. They work best when you have a 5/8" or larger garden hose supplying water.

Please also make sure that you have tried turning the spray adjuster on the end of the wand. The spray will be weaker in the wide spray position than it is in the narrow spray position.

If you wind up calling the folks at AR, please have the serial number of your pressure washer handy in case they ask for it.

Jason,
The 118 comes with two lances: an extension lance and an variable spray lance. Both lances must be connected to create a high-pressure spray. Contact AR Blue Clean Customer Service if you have any questions. Email: info@arblueclean.com Phone: 866-235-5112 8-5pm M-F.

Great Little Pressure Washer!
This is a GREAT pressure washer for most household chores. We live on a small ranch and it is plenty big enough to clean off our deck boards, clean out dirty horse troughs, and wash off concrete.

Unless you have fairly heavy duty jobs this unit will fit the bill. Very light and super easy to hook up. Only drawback.......the hose connection/filter is plastic so I am VERY careful when using it to make sure it doesn't snap off. Other than that - 5 stars +.
Pros: Light Weight, Price, Easy To Use, Quiet
Cons: Durability

So Far, A Solid Performer
Having been burned by failures and defective-as-received units from Karcher, McCullough and FAIP, I decided it was time to try a different supplier.

This model looked like it would do the job, and for once it looks like I got the good stuff.

It's much quieter than the others, it doesn't sound like the motor is overloaded, the spray pattern is consistent, and it's obvious that this manufacturer spent their money on the guts instead of the casing.

It may not look like much, but... more

Perfect For Cleaning Equipment
I volunteer for an organization that lends some medical assist equipment to those in need short term. Cleaning and sanitizing 50-60 pieces was so much easier and completed in a very short time.

The unit I used was donated by two friends, and after using it I bought one myself for home use. Great little power washer.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Fast
Cons: No Telescoping Wand Available For Gutter Cleaning
