I would think that if you are starving a pressure washer, it would make air bubbles.

If I don't purge the water hose before starting the washer, it stops until the air is worked out of the pump.

Every 28 inches of water column will make 1 psi. You may need to raise your tank. Can you add air pressure to your storage tank?

I like using rotary nozzles. Have you tried them?

I never have less than 20 psi going to my pressure washer, so I can't say what happens with low pressure going to the pump.

Does your 1/2 inch pipe deliver 3 gallons per minute? Most pressure washers use less than that, 2 + gallons/min. Try increasing the pipe size.

Take a pump and boost the water pressure before goes to the pressure washer and see what happens.

Thanks all for the advice. I am kinda tied with my water supply as its all plumbed into the house system unless I can get some sort of large storage tank and an auxilary pump. I will have a look on Ebay regarding booster pumps, I may be able to get a 1000 litre tank that I could use as a reseviour.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Have you got a way to try it closer to the house (normal water pressure) first? Was using mine just with a 1000 liter tank about a meter off the ground (only gravity)... Is there a screen or some type of filter at the input connector that may be restricted?
