Pressure Power Washer help


I was wondering if anyone has any experience with pressure washers on this forum. It is a Honda motor, Comet pump and Pulsar unloader valve. Im basically not getting any pressure out of the wand.

everyone is saying its the unloader valve, but I dont see what could possibly go wrong with it after I took it apart. The bottom of the valve contains a ball but no spring? Can anyone explain the operation of an unloader valve.

Im thinking it somewhere in the pump, but again I cant see what could go wrong? IM thinking I have a clog somwhere maybe but I dont know. Could I be losing pressure in the wand? There isnt any signifigant water leaks, just a drip here or there.

The washer was working fine last season. How could test the parts to see if theyre working correctly.

Thanks

Pressure Power Washer help


Have you pulled the water inlet screen and cleaned it ?
Usually it is located right were the garden hose is attached to the the unit.

A dirty screen will not provide adequate flow to the pump.
