pressure washer pump recycle project?


Hello, I saved this home model electric pressure washer from going to the dump..it worked fine, cleaned my patio,but then suddenly the hose popped loudly(glad my face wasnt near it)its broken at the top of the hose at the connection to the gun..been thinkin.. so we are building a small cabin next summer in remote Alaska..could the pump be worked into the plumbing somewhere.. I was wondering about water pressure from the holding tank..i dont know..just thinking..I dont like to throw stuff away just because a part is broken..definatly not buying the $95 replacment part..what can I use it for?

Land fill, if it's plactic throw it in the recycling bin. It has no use for a water supply system.

I use pressure washers for hydrostat testing on water or heating lines. They'll take a line from static pressure to 120psi in a heart beat. If fact a good one will peg a 300lb. gauge and pull a 2" solder joint apart! Just saying.....
Why not take your hose to a custom hose shop and see if they can make you one. I had a hose for my old car made for $25, dealer wanted $275
