Questions & Answers

Q:Will this clean mildew off of my deck?
by|Mar 26, 2018

Answer This Question

A:  Yes, but if you use the high pressure one you will ruin the wood. It's a matter of balancing so I suggest the lower or adjustable nozzle so it isn't as high and it should work great. And just keep it moving... You will be amazed how things look when your done.

    A:  Dear Home Depot Customer, in general our K2 electric pressure can remove mold, but be sure to test an inconspicuous area before you start. Different types of wood react differently to water pressure. Start with the Vario Power Spray wand on a low setting and then turn up the pressure until the mildew starts to come off. The K2 does not produce an excessive amount of pressure, so it is a good choice working with wood. Hope this helps, Karl, Karcher Customer Care Team

      A:  Yes.

      by|May 5, 2023

        A:  Yes, this can be used to clean mildew off perfectly

          A:  Yes also good for cleaning mold off walkways and tire dirt off of vehicle wheels. Very easy to use, I am pleased with the washer.

            Q:Does this pressure washer work from a 5 gallon bucket water source

            Answer This Question

            A:  Dear Home Depot Customer, while it is technically able to draw water from a standing source (like a bucket), we generally would advise one of our K3, K4 or K5 pressure washers instead. You need a bit more power to effectively use an alternate water source, so we recommend a K3 up to K5 model instead of a K2 for this purpose. Hope this helps, Karl, Karcher Customer Care Team

            by|May 5, 2023

              A:  Np. this will not work from a 5 gallon bucket water source.

              by|May 5, 2023

                A:  As is, the draw hose for the soap dispenser is very short, so no. If you bought an extension hose yes. I fashioned my own soap holder with an old bicycle water bottle and holder. Took some self tapping screws and mounted it to the side next to the wheel and it works great.

                      A:  Dear Home Depot Customer, yes, the wands (Vario Power and Dirtblaste) from your older Karcher model should work with K2 Ergo. Hope this helps, Karl, Karcher Customer Care Team

                        Low shelf life
                        I used it for two years and it broke, straight after warrantee. The part that broke was a control head (heavy duty plastic piece) that developed a crack, which nullified the water pressure and rendered the unit useles...a replacement part after shipping would cost half of what a brand new unit costs. I used it for light duty work and kept it in good shape. Absolutely ridiculous. For what it's worth, while it was functional, it worked as expected.
                          Small but mighty!!
                          Was at first not sure of the performance of the unit but it has a lot of power behind it, working for a cleaning company myself and being familiar with Karcher product I decided to stick to what I know , good product to own very happy.

                          Don't buy
                          Bought this 2 years ago and it now won't work. I thought buying Karcher was a quality brand - very wrong.
                            I'm in love with this thing
                            First, Karcher had a sale, so we got a nice price. Second, the package arrived quickly. Third, the set-up was simple and easy to understand. Finally, even though this unit is one of the lower power models, it has already been pressed into service and passed every test with flying colors. I've cleaned my driveway (years and years of dirt and mulberry juice, gone) and the roof of the greenhouse (wow, you can actually see thru it now). I look forward to other applications (including prep for an outdoor paint job and cleaning my BBQ grill). The K2 is certainly not a heavy-duty model, but the portability and function are perfect for a homeowner's needs. Highest recommendation.

                            washer nozzles not working
                            I bought this about a year ago but I have not been able to use it as I have been disabled and could not use till this month and we found a lot of things wrong. 1st there were leaks all over and could not get them stopped. 2nd the high pressure nozzle does not work . I had to buy metal connectors as the connectors could not be tightened.

                              The pressure washer was easy to assemble and is light weight, should be easy to use.

                              Cool looking and easy to use
                              Our old one burnt out from years of use so it was a no brainer to buy the same brand. It was easy to choose one on the website with a little help from customer service.

                              This is the second Karcher electric pressure I have owned, and I liked the first one so much that I bought a new one after the old one had failed after five years.
