3 quick steps to put your electric pressure washer to rest Now turn on the pressure washer and hold the gun for 2 minutes to spray the water.

Storing the pressure washer Store the pressure washer in a cool, dry place free from dirt, grime and moisture.
If the motor ran and ran properly and you used the pressure washer without water flowing into the system, it can definitely damage the pump, require a flow of water, or damage seals, gaskets, and other components. If not, the pump may need to be replaced.
Keeping Warm You want to keep the pressure washer in a place where it does not freeze. If you do not unscrew the pump cover, the high pressure pump can freeze and burst if the temperature drops below the freezing point.

Although it is possible to start a pressure washer without water, it is not recommended. The pump has the task of drawing water from the supply line and pushing it out through the nozzle. The pump is designed to work with running water. Water helps lubricate the pump and keeps it cool.
