At a busy car wash, your General pumps will get quite a workout through consistent daily use. Having high-quality hoses for your pumps will prolong their life and make their work more efficient and effective. And even with the best pumps installed, you’ll need to repair them occasionally, so having a solid repair kit on hand, or at least knowing where to get one, will be very helpful.
A few things to consider when purchasing and stocking high-pressure hoses for your General pumps include the hoses’ temperature tolerance, length, chemical tolerance, and pressure capability. If you use both hot and cold water, as many car washes do, the hoses you purchase and stock should be able to handle both without losing integrity. Likewise, the hoses need to match and be able to handle the PSI that your pumps put out—using hoses mismatched for pressure creates a dangerous situation and can damage the pressure washer in its entirety. Making sure your hoses can handle the cleaning chemicals you use will help keep the carwash safe and the pressure washer in good repair. And, of course, having hoses that are long enough will boost the efficiency of your washers and, thus, the pumps themselves.
Finding and choosing a repair kit for your General pumps is simpler than it sounds, as repair kits for all different models of pumps are made and sold separately. All you need to know is the make and model number of your pump, and the part or parts that need to be repaired or replaced. From there, a repair supplier either in-store or online will be able to provide you with exactly the repair kit or kits you need.
