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.
by Mike, Product Expert
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: Hi i am looking for Ar118 model my country voltage 220 volt can you advise me .

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.

The only problem is with the house adapter.. It does not seal and leaks.. So I bought the optional brass fitting that solved the problem... Someone from quality control should look into this problem. I'm sure that I'm not the only one with this issue..

Best Ever
I, a 67-year-old woman, look for something small that works. I don't need all the big bulky equipment. Something small and light-weight that works. My prayers have been answered. This is the best thing I have found in a longtime.

I own a concessions business, and I have trucks, trailers, and tents to wash. I don't need a fire hose to clean my things. I did power wash my deck and front porch with just water to see how it works. Beautiful! If you can't tell, I do love my new power washer.

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 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.

Very Good Washer
It done a good job but the second time I went to use it the water coupler would not screw on.
Dolores Recommends This AR Product
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Dolores,
I'm sorry you're having problems with the coupler. If the threads aren't lined up properly you will only get a couple turns before it jams; the same if there's a piece of dirt in the threads. Keeping the hose and connector level, and wiping out the threads may help attach the connector smoothly.

To save your knuckles you may want to get a set of Quick Connectors for your garden hose. Ours are brass and good quality, but you can also find less expensive plastic versions at your local hardware store.

If the coupler is faulty you may want to call the folks at AR Blue Clean directly, toll free, at 866-235-5112 for help under the Factory Warranty. Please have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them.

Still Evaluating!
We like the small size of the machine, but it leaks at the hose connection point, and we haven't been able to remedy that.

We only used it once, but it was a pretty good leak, and we had to keep towels under it.Next time we use it, I hope we can figure out how to get the connection to seal better!
Pam Recommends This AR Product
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Pam,
You may want to try wrapping the threads in teflon pipe tape for a better seal. The tape is available in grocery and hardware stores for around $1.

You won't need to use a lot- just once and a little bit around the threads and pull it tight so it thins out, the thread the hose on. The tape fills up any little spaces in the connector.

If the pipe tape doesn't help, then please give the folks at AR Blue Clean a call, toll free, at 866-235-5112. Be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them- they will ask for it.
