Compact, easy to use with self-priming
18 October 2017
Extremely compact and easy to use. Enough pressure for most domestic jobs. The machine comes with three nozzles - fixed fan jet, rotary and high-pressure detergent. Does not come with a water hose but most local hoses can be used.
The manual could be a bit more informative but the Bosch helpline and support is very good for any technical issues.
The self-priming works very well. I use it to pull water from a tank which is about 20 metres away and which requires the hose to be raised to a height of about 3 metres before it can be dropped into the tank. The way to prime the machine is to connect one end of the hose to the machine, drop the other end into your water source (reverse order also works), turn the power knob to the on position and repeatedly press and release the trigger till water flow starts. Once the pressure is built up, then you can press and release the trigger as per your requirement as the water pressure in the hose pipe will be maintained as long as no air enters the system. I use a normal hose, without a filter or a non-return valve, to pull water from a tank or any non-pressurized water source.
