What's the difference between a pressure washer and a power washer?
Pressure washers and power washers are similar. The main difference is power washers use heated water to clean while a pressure washer does not. A pressure washer is ideal for household use on surfaces like brick and concrete. It is less abrasive on surfaces than power washing.

What is the range of PSI available within Electric Pressure Washers?
Pressure washers use the force of water to clean a surface. Water pressure is measured in pounds per square inch or psi. The PSI rating will help indicate how powerful the water stream will be. GMP or gallons per minute is used to measure cleaning power as well. To get an understanding of the overall power of the washer, multiply PSI by GPM (PSI x GPM). Within Electric Pressure Washers, the highest PSI is 4000 PSI PSI. At the Home Depot, we consider up to 1899 PSI light duty for vehicles or outdoor furniture. Medium duty, which is recommended for fences or patios, is between 1900 - 2799 PSI. Heavy duty is 2800+ PSI, which is recommended for driveways or to strip paint. We also carry commercial pressure washers, which are considered to be 3100+ PSI. Check out the product with the highest review count, the 2800 MAX PSI 1.3 GPM 14.5 Amp Electric Pressure Washer.
