Questions & Answers


What is the soap ratio?

Asked by Pressurewashers October 22, 2020

Hi Pressurewashers, Thanks for your question. The RYOBI 1,600 PSI 1.2 GPM Electric Pressure Washer RY141612 has a soap ratio of 20:1. Thanks for asking! - Eve

Can't find it stated, is this a brushed or brushless motor, and what kind of pump is it? I assume...

Can you add. Cleaning chemicals to unit?

Asked by Eric October 10, 2020

No. You should only use the siphon tube attached to unit for pressure washer fluids.

Can I use an expandable water hose?

Asked by Lauren October 6, 2020

You're better off using a 5/8 inch or thicker conventional hose. Expandable hoses have fittings with small openings and a rubber cord to help contract when empty and those will bottleneck water pressure and cause cavitation.

Can you add multiple sections of hose to the wand?

Asked by Justwondering October 1, 2020

No. Sorry.

Does it work on stucco, or does it take the stucco off?

Asked by YoMama September 26, 2020

I suppose you can , it comes with different adapters depending on the strength you need.

What is the actual working PSI? 1600 PSI is the maximum PSI. What does it mean working PSI?

Asked by blaze September 22, 2020


is there an area to add the bleach? or is it water only?

Asked by Ljd September 15, 2020

Do not run bleach through a PW, it will rot the seals of the pump. If you must use bleach, apply it with garden sprayer, then pressure wash. The best mix is 60% water, 30% bleach and 10% laundry detergent. Never, ever mix any other cleaners with bleach/choline.

What type of threading does this hose have? 1/4", M22-14, M22-15, etc?

Asked by Andrew September 14, 2020

Call Ryobi tech support.

Will it clean the second floor windows

Asked by Marie September 13, 2020

No need to be about a foot, 12 inches or less.

Washer Great, Hose Sucks
Hose burst next to the machine on second use after purchasing less than a month ago. Went off like a gunshot. The washer is great for what I need it for, but having to turn around and buy a new hose so soon makes this ‘exclusive deal’ not so great.

This pressure washer is amazing. I wanted something small but powerful and it did not disappoint. It melted away years of algae, dirt and mold from my deck like butter on a hot biscuit!

Great While It Lasted

Bought the previous version of this (all green shell) in March 2017. IT is now 6 months outside of the 3 year warranty and it has filed on me. I didn't even use it any more than a couple of times a year to do my driveway and porch.

just the job

This is just the job for small(ish) areas of brick pathway. It may be slower or less efficient than a "professional" level washer but I think people wanting to use it one or two times a year will be happy. A big virtue is its small size. We ahev nowhere in our garage to store a power washer but this can be carried down to our basement for the winter.

Has as much power/flow as the ar2n1 I ordered to compare, and its smaller, lighter and cheaper. The PWMA certification is credible. Neither the ar2n1 nor this Ryobi RY141612 have as much cleaning power as I thought they would, but with the turbo tip this is adequate for my needs, just takes longer to clean things than I would like. AR2N1 says 2050, but working pressure is only 1700.

So Much Better than I expected!
Customer review from logo
Bought this pressure washer to clean outside walls and doors of mini storage where I'm their maintenance supervisor. Was really really concerned about my inexperience and the small rocks in the walls of blgs... Was surprised at how easy it was to operate and switch tips, to working with cleaning chemicals. Never used a Pressure washer before. I would recommend this one to anyone that has doubts or fears of using one. Not a single rock off the 1st bldg, I started on fell off the walls. Thanks [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great Review - Not Paid
Quality :

I bought this pressure washer today after watching some reviews on youtube. We wanted to wash our paver patio and outside basement stairs. This small power washer did just the trick. It works well and although I have only had it for a day so I can't vouch for how it will perform over time, one of the youtube reviewers (also not paid for his review) has had it for 2 years and it is still going strong. I have not been paid for this review. It is all based on my own experience. The pressure was just right and the pressure washer is so easy to navigate and I just really had fun using it.

How Did I LIve Without It?!
Customer review from logo
I always believed power washers were a waste of money. Not even sure why because I'd never used one! But I had a basketball backboard (fiberglass) that was covered in 20 years of mold and assorted gunk. We were planning to replace but I thought maybe I'd give this power washer a try after a blogger I follow mentioned how much she liked it. AMAZING. The backboard looks brand new! Then I tried it on my driveway (which I didn't even think looked dirty). The difference was stunning. Then I hit a cedar fence with it and the boards look first day new again. Easy to use with clear directions. How did I ever live without it?! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
