Color Coded Nozzles
Typically, nozzles are color coded to indicate what degree of fan spray they produce.
0° – Cutting Nozzle
It delivers a concentrated stream that can gouge or cut. It can cut stubborn stains from concrete and other hard surfaces. 15° – Chiseling Nozzle
Working at a 45° angle, this nozzle works like a scraper, stripping paint, grease and grime from hard surfaces.
25° – Flushing Nozzle
The most commonly used nozzle for cleaning dirt from siding, sidewalks and metal furniture as well as for wet sweeping leaves.
40° – Wash Nozzle
Its wide spray allows you to wash and rinse a large area fast. It is usually safe with most surfaces, including aluminum siding, windows and vehicles.
Other nozzles to consider:
Soap Nozzles – Low pressure chemical applications.
Turbo Nozzles – Increases impact pressure by more than 10x’s that of conventional nozzles
Sewer/Tube Cleaning – Reverse jets on the fixed and rotary nozzles; pull hose through the tube or sewer line and blast debris from line or tube walls.
Rollover Nozzle – Nozzles on opposite sides for positive change from chemical applications to high pressure rinse
High/Low Variable Angle – Push/pull between high and low pressure; simply twist to adjust from zero to 80 degree spray fan pattern
