As Seen on TV: Water Jet

Spring cleaning often requires a heavy duty cleaner, like a pressure washer, but they can expensive. You could spend a fraction of that amount on the Water Jet, which promises to turn your garden hose into a high power washer.

Would it get hosed in our As Seen on TV Test?

A common spring/summer project that requires a power washer would be that pesky dirt on the aluminum siding or the vinyl siding from the winter. You're going to need something high powered to get that clean.

The Water Jet claims to turn any garden hose into a high pressure washer. So, how do you do it? It's pretty simple, you would hook it up to your hose like a regular spray handle nozzle. It comes with a little washer and you put it on, and it comes with a valve where you can regulate the amount of pressure, and you just simply open it up.

It does appear to remove dirt from siding. It did a nice job doing removing most of the work. Obviously, if I had a power washer with 2000 to 2400 PSI, it would have done a better job.

It didn't do a bad job for the relative amount of pressure coming out the end of the tip. The WaterJet actually comes with two nozzle tips. The one I just washed the house with is more of a wide angle. Then we have another one which is more of a jet stream, and it does a pretty good job.

Another claim of the Water Jet is that it's so powerful that you can use it to get to those hard-to-reach places, I have a bunch of debris behind my backboard, and the water jet does good job removing debris behind there.

Here are my thoughts on the Water Jet, first and foremost, it does not turn your water hose into a high pressure washer.

What it really does, is it gives you a more sophisticated squirt nozzle. For $20, it's really a pretty nice thing to have around. So while I don't agree it turns your hose into a pressure washer, it is a nice thing to have around and we're going to give it the partial thumbs up.

I think the Water Jet would be perfect to wash your car, boat or wash that debris off your deck.

I paid $20 for mine at Walgreen's, they're in a lot of stores and all over the internet. For more information, just click on the Big Red Bar.
