ET handyman question- Pressure washer

  1. Need to buy a pressure washer for my house. Mostly to clean the brick walkways and concrete around the pool.

    Is this one adequate for basic home use? Is it powerful enough to clean the walkways?

    (The reason I picked this one is b/c I can get it free with some of my AMEX reward points, but don't want to get it if it sucks)

    Thanks in advance.
  2. that's more than what you need for cleaning masonry walkways. i rented another model with similar specs and it worked very well on my brick patio, even without detergent. in fact, 3000 psi is overkill; i have an electric 1700 psi model now and it's fine.

    dewalt makes high quality tools.
  3. Use that at a steep angle, as in not perpendicular to the deck. Otherwise you may dislodge any loose grout that may exist. On a flat contiguous concrete deck...knock yourself out.

  4. Thank you very much for your help.
