Customer Question

I have the 2600psi 160 briggs pressure washer. about 5 years old. the pump is about 1/4 pressure. It went up and down on pressure but now it is only what is coming from the water pressure with full volume volume. could o rings be bad already?

Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. It sounds like it could be the o rings try seals around the piston , but if your getting water out of the nozzle with no pressure it's not in by pass mode etc . It definitely sounds like a seal issue

Was it stored in a shed or outside where temperatures could reach freezing or below freezing ?
