Nilfisk C110 Pressure Washer

12
Posted 26th Mar
Hi All,

Finally got round to unboxing my pressure washer as per the title... nothing flash, just a cheap 'Nilfisk C110 Pressure Washer'.... My only issue is, is that it doesn't come with a pipe to connect to a tap which will then feed the machine with water...

Therfore could anyone advise me on which is the correct one to buy, I.e. inlet pipe and tap adapter please? To fit a regular garden tap (Round screwy looking end).

I dont have a water but or anything like that... Just a outside garden tap.

I noticed Nilfisk have their own 'Inlet' pipe... but seems overpriced for what it is... and not enough sellers to make the pricing competitve... not paying £50 for an inlet pipe!

Thanks in advance!

Buy a hose pipe and use that to connect to it
Just use a standard hose as recommended above. Hozelock or similar fittings

Something like this

One thing to bear in mind is avoid the cutoff or stop connectors

If you mean your outdoor tap has a threaded end, then all you need is a threaded connector - then a quick-coupler to connect to it. A hose inbetween and another quick-coupler to connect to the pressure washer (if it's the quick couple type and not just a push-on pipe.)

So:

I just used B & Q as an example. You don't need "Hozelock" which are usually pricey - any old tap connector will do. If you can afford it though, I would recommend the brass ones as they don't deteriorate as much.

If your tap isn't threaded, you'll need one of these instead:

You just push it onto the tap, and tighten the thumbscrew.

Good advice about the stop connectors. Reduces flow by 30% apparently and i have that pressure washer and they are very hard to connect to the inlet...about to get a different connector. Saw mention of a blue b and q own brand by a couple of people.

This is one bit where I saw it..only found as I have to wrestle connector on. rmsmotoring.com/for…10/ I guess the plastic bit inside would restrict flow...I only notice as on private water supply so pressure isnt great to begin with!

Exactly what I got, hose pipe and the two connector (£7 in total) to connect from my new pressure washer to kitchen tap

I also believe they allow the pump to momentarily run dry unless you pull the trigger on the gun to get water flowing through to prime the pump then turn the machine on

Thankyou everyone!
