Q: I have a Simpson 3100 psi pressure washer that came with the 1/4 hose and a wand. Neither of these are very good. I would like to outfit my washer with an extended 18 foot wand a 50 foot hose and a standard wand to replace the one that came with it. I would like to go to a 3/8 hose and quick connectors. Can you recommend what I would need to purchase to make this happen. Thanks!
by John Whitfield from North Carolina on September 22, 2012

A: We definitely will have what you are looking for. You will want to purchase the aluminum version of these telescoping wands if you are looking at spraying detergents thru them. The fiberglass wands cannot draw chemicals thru them.

As for the a replacement 50ft high pressure hose, I would recommend you look at either model # 29.0122 or MH5038QC. Both are good quality 3/8" hoses with quick connect fittings. You would need to purchase adapter part #'s D10088 and D10037 for your pump and trigger gun connection to be compatible.

We carry a 2ft spray wand that accepts interchangeable quick connect spray tips at the end. This wand is a model # AL248-C. You can locate these products on our site by simply entering the model # in the search box on the upper right hand side of the website.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Q: I have a craftsman 580752400 PSI 2800 GPM 2.5. Can I use one of these wands on this pressure washer? I have a 2 story single family home what is your recommendation if I can use one of these wands?
by Jeremy on March 22, 2012

A: Yes, you could definitely use any of the telescoping wands we carry with your pressure washer. If you want to be able to pull detergent thru the wand, you will want to purchase the aluminum version. The fiberglass versions cannot draw detergent thru them due to the size of the inner hose that is installed
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Am I correct in reading your Q&A, each wand(fiberglass and aluminum) is made for rinsing OR soaping down the house? Is there one that will do both? If not, will the regular wand on the pressure washer be good enough for rinsing?
Thanks

by AJ from Virginia on September 24, 2011

A: The fiberglass version of these telescoping wands can only spray high pressure water. The aluminum versions can do both, pull detergent and spray high pressure water.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: What extension should I purchase for a 3000 psi / 2.7 gpm pressure washer if I want to apply detergent with the extension? I'm looking to do the second story soffits on my home.
by Mark from Virginia on July 30, 2011

A: I would suggest that you purchase the 18' Aluminum version model DLTG18A. You can only apply detergent thru the aluminum telescoping wands because of the 5/16" hose that runs thru the middle of the wand. The fiberglass versions use a 1/4" hose and you cannot apply detergent with those models.

I would also recommend that you purchase the wand belt model D20015 for use with this wand. The 18' and 24' telescoping wands can be a little difficult to keep steady when fully extended. The wand belt keeps them stabilized.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Why is the pressure loss an issue with 18ft extension wands? At this height, the loss should be about 10psi (to push the water to that height), so even at 1800psi one should not notice any difference. Even my garden hose works that high (on my roof, two story house).
by Mike from Illinois on July 15, 2011

A: Unfortunately these wands really do not work well with less than about 2300 psi. With a garden hose, you are pushing water thru either a 3/4" or 5/8" diameter hose. On these telescoping wands, there is a 1/4" hose that runs thru the center of the wand. Since you are drastically lowering the volume of water you are pushing vertically, there would be a major loss of psi when using 2000 psi and below.

We have had customers try to use these wands with psi ratings lower than 2300 psi and they simply are not satisfied with the performance.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Will the DLTG18 work with a Karcher 2300 psi pressure waher wit a 6hp tecumesh engine? Also is there an adapter for gutter cleaning? If not, what extension wand should I consider?
by Joe from New Jersey on May 04, 2011

A: I would not suggest using this wand with your pressure washer. You are going to be a pretty good loss of pressure. These are capable of performing with at least 2500 psi, but even that much can see a diminished amount of pressure.

My suggestion would be to look into a high pressure soap shooter. This would be a nozzle to connect into the end of your wand and can shoot soap and water high distances.

Thanks,

Does A Great Job
I was able to clean the second story without going up and down a ladder. It made my 2nd floor and gutter cleaning really fast. It is heavy but if you think you can handle it I would get the 24 foot for that little extra reach.

I purchased the 18' and could of used another foot or two in places but the 18 did get the job done. It is a lot faster than using a ladder but even with belt I was hurting the next morning when I got up. It is a workout but the best way of dealing with the project I... more

This wand works great and came with all the necessary connections for my new pressure washer, but this can be very heavy and difficult to use with the second telescoping section extended.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive

Got 2nd Story Clean But ...
With this extension I was able to reach the 2nd story and successfully clean the vinyl siding. There was very little drop in pressure even when fully extended.

However, as noted in the other reviews when fully extended it is a major struggle to handle even with the belt. I had to stop multiple times to rest my arms and was definitely sore the next day.
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use

An Exercise In Futility. A Big Disappointment.
I have used power washers for 25 years.This extension wand is almost impossible to use when it is fully extended. It is impossible to maintain a constant distance from the area to be cleaned so it is either too far away and it doesn't work or you are too close and it destroy the surface of what you are cleaning.

It was a complete waste of money and an exercise in futility. This is a product that appears to be a great idea on paper and terrible in reality.
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Very Difficult To Manuver

Gerald,
18 feet is almost 2 stories high- that's a lot to maneuver, especially under pressure. Users need a fair amount of physical strength to control the pole at full extension.

Packaging
When I finally received my wand, the package looked like it had been run over by a truck. The UPS guy said that was how he received it. I think you can do more as far as packaging.

As for the wand, it does save us time by not having to have a ladder. Will recommend to others.

PWD RESPONDS: This item ships directly from the manufacturer- we will be happy to pass along your advice about the packaging.
