    Default Pressure Washer Indoors?

    I've been using this big pressure washer that my landlord lends me for reclaiming all summer in the back patio of our building. Winter is coming fast and I need something I can use indoors. Anyone know a pressure washer or alternative I can use in a second-floor one-bedroom apartment? Noise isn't really a problem.

    Thanks,
    jr

    Honestly, nope. You kinda need to use a pressure washer to relcaim your screens fully. You can try using a regular hose for awhile, but ultimately you will just lose screens much much faster, as emulsion will not be forced to leave the party, your screens will gank up faster, etc.

    Our cheapie electric pressure washer cost about $75, you can get a hose and adapter to hook it up from the sink to the pressure washer for a few bucks too.
    But, DO NOT forget the hearing protection - I use ours in a small 6x6 space and always put on the construction/shooting range type headphone ear protectors.

    if it is gas powered, you could get a long hose. leave the unit outside on the patio and just run the gun into the bathroom to reclaim.

    Does the adaptor require there be threads on the faucet? Because neither of my sinks(bathroom/kitchen) have threads, but I might be able to work something onto the shower. Thanks for the advice.

    I use this guy:



    Karcher 1300 PSI Suitcase Pressure Washer from Overstock.com

    hooks right up to the faucet with the adapter. nice and small for storing it too.

    I'm no plumbing expert, but I do know that the sink faucet I'm using has threads - they were covered though. I had to remove the cover with a pair of pliers.
    The adapter had threads. Shower heads will have them as well. remove the head, the threads will be exposed. You may not need an adapter if going straight from the shower head.

    Will your landlord be cool with the shower getting all inky and emulsion-y? Even with the best intentions, that tub will get stained and stuff. Just a heads up.
