messagePressure hose - karcher- extension
Posted by muffins78 January 12, 03:58PM

Hi Iím hoping someone can help please? Iíve been looking at pressure cleaners for our garden - and itís quite a big area, both back and front. The Karcher K4 seemed to hit the spec apart from the hose length which is only 6 meters.

I can see you can get extension hoses but they are pricey, largest I could see was 20 m. Our back garden extends to 150 ft (itís shared garden).

I saw a karcher hose on a reel (25 m) which was less expensive, and the reviews Ďonlyí said that it could be attached to a pressure cleaner - but the spec doesnít confirm that (I donít think so anyway). Do you think an ordinary garden hose could be connected? Iíve got two (one for front and back of building which are the correct size in terms of the reach I need with the cleaner)? They are not sturdy big hoses - given the length of the garden I had to get a lightweight ones - so I wasnít carrying the weight all the time.

Normally we get someone in to clean our paths and walls etc., but Iím happy to be hands on and see this as an investment - but at the same time donít want to be spending lots of the other leaseholders money incorrectly/unwisely.

Thanks for any help smiling smiley

I might have had it wrong. Being looking on YouTube. Is it that the 6m hose is attached to pressure washer to do the cleaning - and that a separate hose is connected to the water supply? Therefore I can use my normal hoses?

If so, great, but spent hours looking things on today smiling smiley

Yes. Use a normal garden hose to supply water to the pressure washer. Of course you have to move the washer around the garden to within 6m of the areas you want to clean.

Of course you'll also need an extension for the electric power cable.
