5 Creative Ways You Can Use An Adjustable Pressure Washer

Water makes up about 71 percent of the Earth’s surface, and it’s the ultimate source for having fun. No, we’re not talking about swimming or water balloon fights, we’re talking about having a blast with your pressure washer!

An adjustable pressure washer gives you the ultimate power, of fast-moving water. Sure, you can clean things with it, but why stop there?

For those who like thinking outside of the box, we’ve created a list of the top creative ways you can use water to turn work into play. So take a look. You’ll learn new ways to use your pressure washer, you never even thought of before.

Adjustable Pressure Washer Safety

Adjustable pressure washer injuries are completely avoidable, as long as you follow these tips:

  • Never aim the wand at a person
  • Wear protective equipment
  • Don’t work at high heights
  • Have situational awareness
  • Get the right nozzle
  • Be aware of electric shock

All you need to do is follow the simple safety tips above, to let the fun begin!

1. Perfectly Peeled Potatoes

Peeling potatoes is a pretty boring task, right? Well, now with the help of your pressure washer, you can turn the once boring task into an exciting project.

Here are the steps you’ll need to take:

  • Put potatoes in a crate outside
  • Stand back from crate
  • Pressure wash potatoes
  • Inspect potatoes for skins
  • Pressure wash again if any skins remain

First, you’ll want to put the potatoes in a crate, or a container with holes. The main idea is that you’ll want to put them in a container that can drain the water, while also keeping them off of the ground.

Next, stand back one to two ft from the crate. After turning the pressure washer on, begin evenly spraying it over the potatoes. It’s amazing how quickly the water can rip the skin off of each potato.

Go back and forth over the potatoes until it looks like all of the skins are off. Once you think you’re done, turn off the pressure washer. Pick up each potato to double-check the skins.

If any of the skins remain, simply pressure wash again until they’re completely off. Voila! You now have perfectly peeled potatoes, using water!

2. Scale A Fish Super Fast

There’s nothing fishy about using a pressure washer to scale a fish. Now, the tedious process of thoroughly cleaning your freshly caught fish only takes a matter of minutes.

Here are the steps you’ll need to take:

  • Put a cutting board on the ground outside
  • Place your fish on top of the cutting board
  • Turn on your adjustable pressure washer
  • Hold the fishtail with one hand
  • Begin spraying the fish

Once you have your fish on the cutting board outside, you’ll want to hold the fish’s tail firmly in one hand. If you don’t hold the fishtail firmly enough, you could wind up sending your fish flying across the yard.

Next, begin spraying water on to the fish scales about 6in away from the fish. Completely scale the entire area around your hand before you move up to the middle of the fish. You’ll want to take your time as you evenly cover all of the fish scales until you finally get to the head.

Once you’re done with one side, flip the fish over and begin the process again for the other side. Now, you can keep your hands relatively clean, while speeding up your scaling time.

3. Bye Bye Leaves

Fall leaves are beautiful to look at, but they’re deadly for your grass. If you don’t want to spend all day raking up your leaves, or pulling out your cumbersome leaf blower, you can pressure washer leaves instead.

Here are the steps to take:

  • Put pressure washer in your yard
  • Make sure your family members know to stay out of the yard
  • Walk through your yard and pick up any tools or toys
  • Turn on your pressure washer
  • Aim the nozzle at leaves

Your adjustable pressure washer is going to be loud, so you might not hear someone walking up behind you. That’s why we suggest letting your family and friends know exactly what you’re doing, so you don’t get any surprises.

Next, walk through the yard to make sure there aren’t any toys or tools that you don’t want the pressure washer destroying.

Once you’re positive the yard’s clear, you can begin moving the leaves with the water. In a matter of minutes, you’ll be able to see your beautiful green grass again.

4. Be A Fruit Ninja

So far we’ve been telling you ways to use your pressure washer to help cut down the time it takes to do difficult tasks. However, you can also use your pressure washer for fun projects like slicing open a grapefruit.

Here are the steps to take:

  • Wash the grapefruit
  • Go outside with the grapefruit and pressure washer
  • Hold the grapefruit down with a heavy object
  • Get the nozzle right up to the grapefruit skin
  • Begin cutting with water

To hold your grapefruit down, you can try using a cinderblock. Gently put one end (not the middle) of the cinderblock over the grapefruit. Now, with the fruit wedged in place, you can begin spraying, right up against the skin of the fruit.

It’s oddly satisfying being able to cut your fruit with water. You’ll need to use a zero degree red tip on your pressure washer to make sure that you slice the grapefruit without destroying it.

5. Bonus Project

If you think slicing open a grapefruit is fun, you can try carving a pumpkin next! To get the best results, we suggest drawing on your pumpkin first with a sharpie.

Next, you can begin to slowly trace over the sharpie markings with your pressure washer. Before you know it, you’ll have a fully carved jack-o’-lantern.
