My white vinyl home was looking dirty, in particular on the sides that are close to trees. There was a greenish buildup on the siding in these areas that was in need of a good cleaning. I thought about renting a pressure washer but liked the idea of having one around the house that could be taken out and used anytime something needed cleaning so I headed down to my local Lowe's hardware store to see what they had on hand.
There were several models to choose from, both gasoline and electric, each varying in price according to pressure rating. Since I only planned on using a pressure washer for household projects and in particular washing the vinyl siding on my home I decided to go with the Task Force 1600psi electric model that is rated at 1.5gpm.
This model made not have been as powerful as other models but I am pleased with how clean my siding looks and the smaller model should save on water consumption too. I think that I made a good investment with my money on this product.
