1. The Rotary Spray Nozzle
Roto nozzles are a great way to increase your cleaning effectiveness. A roto nozzle is a zero-degree nozzle that when put under pressure will start the tip spinning and give you a 25° spray pattern in a circular
pattern. The key to this tip is to learn how to use it as well so that you know what kinds of surfaces to use it on. Although this tip will speed up the process it can also do damage if used improperly on the wrong types of surfaces. The roto tip works best to clean concrete or to de-mud something that has excessive dirt or grease.
Always test surfaces before using this tip. Also always start this tip in the downward position to keep from damaging the internal parts of the tip.
2. Water Broom
Water brooms are an accessory that you can add to any pressure washer. The water broom allows you to clean a large area with a spray bar and casters with nozzles. You need a pressure washer that ideally
