    Default Air Compressor Stuff

    Does anyone know if they make an air compressor attachment that would allow you to power wash your house? The air compressor I purshased has two sizes of attachment chucks, and the "other" size is the same as the el-cheapo electric power washer which is why I'm wondering. The el-cheapo died and I'm trying to avoid having to buy another gizmo. I have stripped the el-cheapo down and have all the fittings, etc. but of course it is powered by a now-defunct electric motor. I'm wondering if I can replace the electric drive with air. My air compressor does 90 PSI.

    I found this, but it is in the UK:

    They have similar items here, they don't work very good. I would just find another motor if you want a pressure washer.

    The motor in your pressure washer is compressing the water to a higher PSI.
    Injecting air from a air compressor is not the same thing and you would not be happy at all.

    Thanks for the info! So my idea to save $300 on a small pressure washer won't work
