    2100psi of water pressure

    I wouldnt let it near my car, apart from the paint coming off the panels would be battered to death aswell

    thats the sort of pressure they use in industrial drain unblocking equipment

    I dont think it would harm the car. I would be more bothered about calling the fire brigade every sunday to get you off the roof

    I guess as long as the nozzle is adjustable the high pressure wouldn't be too much of an issue, and with a 7.5ltr/m flow rate snow foaming the car would be like an Ibiza foam party.

    Where does it say 2100psi or is that the equilivaent to 150 bar ?
    150 bar would be ok to use on the car wouldnt it?
