How hot water can I use with my AVA?

AVA's pressure washers are designed to handle a variety of cleaning tasks, but they are not intended to function as hot water washers. Therefore, it is essential to adhere to the recommendations not to use water hotter than 40 degrees Celsius. Understanding why this is important can help extend the lifespan of your pressure washer and avoid unnecessary problems.

Effective cleaning without extreme heat

The maximum temperature of 40 degrees Celsius is more than sufficient to tackle most cleaning tasks. This is especially important when dealing with grease-soluble grime. Using hot water may be tempting, as it can appear more effective at loosening grease and oil residues. However, this can lead to unwanted consequences. For particularly challenging tasks, AVA offers a solution that doesn't require hot water. You can use a suitable detergent to replace the need for high temperatures. By combining this with the AVA foam cannon, you have the opportunity to use precisely the soap needed to clean effectively. This provides a gentle yet powerful approach to cleaning without relying on extreme heat.


What happens when you use water that's too hot?

Using water that is too hot in your AVA pressure washer can have serious consequences. First and foremost, it will result in reduced lifespan for your device. The higher the water temperature, the more wear and tear the pump will experience. This can lead to costly repairs or the need to replace parts of the device earlier than expected. There are also risks associated with using hot water during cleaning. Even if you can adjust the water temperature to your desired level, the intake of cold water in the same household can cause the pressure to drop and the temperature to rise. This can happen quickly and unnoticed, and before you know it, you may exceed the recommended limit of 40 degrees. When this happens, the pump may stop working, requiring a service to reset the pump and restore the device's functionality.


To maintain trouble-free and long-lasting use of your AVA pressure washer, it is crucial to adhere to the recommendations regarding water temperature. Avoid using water above 40 degrees Celsius and instead, make use of suitable detergent and the foam cannon to tackle even the most demanding cleaning tasks. By following these guidelines, you can be sure that your AVA pressure washer will continue to deliver impressive cleaning results for a long time to come.
