Bucket Test

  1. Grab a 5 gallon bucket
  2. Disconnect the garden hose from machine and any accessories that came with it.
  3. Turn water all the way on
  4. Use a stop watch to time how long it takes to fill the bucket. (the bucket should fill or be close
  5. to full in 60 seconds. 4-5 gallons per minute is the target.)
  6. If you have too much pressure and the bucket is full in 50 seconds or less, turn your water
  7. down at the faucet until you can fill the bucket at the target rate (4-5 gallons per minute)
  8. Reattach hose to machine and try going through the start up process again.
