Pressure washer pump recommendatons

I would like to buy a new pump to attach to my motor ( Honda GC 160 ) The output shaft is 3/4 inch. The old pump was rated for 2 5 GPM @ 2200 PSI. I don’t believe I will be using the system heavily. I’d like to buy a pump that is intermediate quality. I don’t want to buy dirt cheap because they won’t last long. I am willing to spend a little extra because you get what you pay for.

I trust I have provided enough info. If you need more, please let me know.
Can anyone make some recommendations? Are there some specific features I should look for? Thank you for your input!

This forum is primarily for professionals, but if you’re looking to upgrade a bit you’ll want to sell your current unit and find another used one with more GPM.

Thanks. The old pump is off and I was just using the figures as a starting point. I don’t know if the motor size would limit GPM in any way. If you say I can go larger on the GPM spec, I am willing to do that. I do appreciate your response.

There are cheaper pumps out there but this one should have enough quality to get you by.

Hello. I am hoping to up the strength of a machine by adding another pump in line. I have a job to do and it’s a bunch of tile flooring around a house. The tile is very old (1930’s) and the grout missing large chunks everywhere. I’m hoping twice the power will let me really get it cleaned up nice.

You don’t want that high of PSI.

I agree. I wouldn’t want to remove, repair or replace any sort of pump myself. That is best left to the professional mechanics.

That’s sounds awesome more power = more clean.

Yes, my thoughts exactly. But Mr. Samsquanch told me I don’t need that much power. This is all very contradictory.

They’re messing with you.:laughing:

Bottom line, professionals generally go for higher GPM and are happy with 2500-3000psi. Wanting to blast grout out between tiles goes against every fiber in our being.

Oh, and no…you can’t piggyback pumps for more PSI.
