Questions & Answers


can it feed from a bucket or do i have to hook it to a garden hose?

Asked by sl August 4, 2018

I use the sprayer from all sorts of freestanding water tanks: 250-gallon square IBC, 120-gallon round water, 50-gallon water barrel. (I'm too cheap to sign up for $150 a month city water when rain falls free.) As long as the water tank stands a couple of pallets or hollow blocks higher than the Ryobi sprayer, spraying works if the water hose between the water tank's spigot and the Ryobi's input is short. (My hose is just 6ft. At 50ft hose length, even the best, contractor-grade hose won't work for this, I already found out.) Another interesting thing I just discovered yesterday out of necessity (spraying my house roof), once the water is moving and spraying is on at ground level, the siphon effect will remain and water will keep flowing, and spraying will continue after I climb a ladder, lifting the Ryobi sprayer and its nozzle gun ABOVE the tank it gets the water from. So we are spraying the roof panels of a one-level house that we stand on - from a water tank down there just a foot above ground by this means. Gotta love the siphon effect...

what type of extension cord do you use with this power washer?

Asked by bonitaguy November 19, 2017

Hi, Bonitaguy- For 25ft length, you'll need a 14 Gauge extension cord. For 50ft, you'll need a 12 gauge. 100 Ft. is not recommended. We hope this helps!

Will it clean mildew & fist from mobile homes?

Asked by Jo September 28, 2017

You cannot use BLEACH with this machine or the 1,900 psi machine. This information is in you manual, section 10.

How noisy is this model compared to the gas powered models?

Asked by Mdaley21 November 24, 2018

I found the Ryobi 1600 Electric Pressure Washer to be much quieter than the gas powered models. My neighbors agree.

How complicated is assembly?

Asked by Tara July 30, 2018

it's pretty simple and quick

What maintainence is required for this equipment?

Asked by Bluke September 29, 2018

Pump Protector. Oils insides for storage.

How do i put soap into the pressure washer

Asked by cxa0395 December 12, 2018

The unit comes with an attachment hose to add liquid soap to the water stream.


Asked by LEO June 26, 2019

Hi, Leo- This pressure washer is on the lower end of the PSI spectrum, so it's good for washing cars if your paint is in good condition. We do recommend taking the following steps to protect the paint: 1: Use the widest spray nozzle you can. (This unit comes with a 15 degree nozzle as the widest. The Home Depot also offers wider options.) The wider the fan, the less abrasive the water will be. 2: Test on a less visible spot on the car to make sure. 3: Start farther away from the car and adjust your distance as necessary. We hope this helps!

can this be used on composite wood trex and railing?

Asked by joie February 3, 2019

Yes, I've used it for exactly that purpose. You may not have to use full power or back the wand away from the deck not because Trex can't handle it but because you may not not pull power to clean it. Remember this is an electric pump with maximum power of 1600 psi so I might be worried if you were using a 2000 psi gas pump but this model will be fine.

can i use this safely to wash my rv roof?

Asked by woody May 29, 2020

Hi Woody Sure, it should be just fine. However, use a low pressure or general spray tip nozzle (with caution). We hope this helps. Best Regards Thank you for contacting RYOBI, we apologize for the delay in response.

Perfect for beginners, and for any cleaning for the house. You can wash your car and clean sidewalks really quick. Easy to storage and doesn't take much space at all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great product
So easy and powerful! Ive used many different power washers and this is by far the easiest. The only complaint is after a while your hands get so tired, but my husband fixed this issue by placing a ziptie loosely around the handle so you can hold the sprayer. It worked like a charm!

Full size power in a small package!
Customer review from logo
I've always owned and used gas-powered pressure washers but they are heavy, cumbersome, and require a lot of maintenance. I decided to take a chance on this electric version by Ryobi and boy was I surprised... in a good way!!! It's great for around the house jobs and you can set it up and be using it in less than five minutes! It's so versatile and has plenty of power to get the job done. Thus far, I've cleaned my dingy concrete driveway, front and rear patios, sidewalk, windows, siding as well as my cars and boat. I seem to eagerly find a new project to use it for every week! I highly recommend this pressure washer and know you'll be as impressed and satisfied as I've been. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Easy to set up and go!
Customer review from logo
I bought this to clean my driveway and sidewalks and was hesitate given the size that it would not get the job done. I was wrong to doubt this RYOBI product! I used it for almost 5 hours straight and it did not give me any problems and cleaned everything I needed it too! The turbo wash attachment saved me a lot of time and I would still be out there if the attachment wasn't included! The only complaint I have is the tube out of the box easily gets tangled but it did work itself out towards the end of my job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This little powerhouse works great for removing mildew. I live in the coast and battle the green slime on everything. It does a great job on the fence too. I LOVE how easy it is to carry around and how small it is for easy storage. Wish I had bought it years ago. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.
