    Luck of the draw I guess. Washers and O rings seem to get consumed on mine, and they are a Karcher specific size, in fairness, Karcher are cheap and quick with their bits.

    My last one finally let go by blowing its pump casting apart.

    I use the following attachment;

    http://www.autobritedirect.co.uk/sho...oducts_id=1725

    I pressure wash first to remove loose dirt.
    Snow Foam car and leave to dwell.
    Wash with m/fibre mitts, use 2/3 per car to avoid grit (then put in washing machine before next use).
    Pressure wash off again.
    Dry with m/fibre cloths, 5/6, and again wash before next use.

    I bought it as a group buy on the FiatForum. I use it with their own brand of Snow Foam. I swear by it, quicker and better results IMO.
