Pressure Washer problem


I didn't realize I did it but last time I tried to start my pressure washer, there was a huge up-spout from the discharge side of the pump. I guess I accidentally broke off the soap suction "T" and now water is shooting out. How could I go about fixing that without putting on a new pump? Do you think JB Weld would work or should I try to tap it and put a new screw in attachment in there? Thanks for the help.

Pressure Washer problem


You may want to post a picture, or at least a make or model number; otherwise, it's anyone's guess. Like most mechanical devices, there are part sources, so barring something real unique, JB Weld would not be my first choice. Have you used it previously this summer? Is it possible that it froze over the winter? Reason I ask is that they do typically have a replaceable freeze plug.

It is the nipple that broke off. I will put a picture on tonight. Thanks for the recommendation.
