A Great Add-on
A great add-on to my Karcher pressure washer. It drained all the water off the top of my pool cover in exponential time!!!

Suction Hose Doesn't Alway Suck
Southern California Drought drove me to the Karcher brand since it was the only power washer able to pull water from a portable source. Priming water to the PW was a small nightmare. Took a long time and was not always consistent if sometimes an air bubble would keep it from working at all.

Following these 2 tricks I found online made it easier to prime. (These tricks should have been in the manual.)

"The purchase experience at Pressure Washers Direct was great. Fast shipping. I would have purchased the inlet filter from here too, but at the time of purchase, they didn't carry it."
