    This is probably a silly question but if you were to connect your petrol washer to an outside tap does the pressure hose fit on to a standard fitting or do you need a different connector .

    Sorry you lost me on that one as a garden hose is completely different to a pressure washer hose.


    You connect the garden hose to the inlet of the pump if it takes a direct tap feed that is but some don't so you need to draw water from a buffer tank.

    The pressure washer hose goes to the outlet of the pump that should be included in the washer you get surely?

    Thanks Smurf, as i said in my opening post i am new to this and have just received my first pressure washer. I bought it from Jetmac but i got 2 pressure hoses with it and it was advertised as only getting one so i thought it must be for the supply (obviously i had my blonde head on).. It did not mention it was a barrel fed machine but i will give it a whirl when i get home.
    Thanks again and be prepared for some more stupid questions Lol
