I have an Alto pressure washer for which Iâ€™ve had two pressure hoses, both of which abraded and punctured after a couple of fairly brief periods of use, presumably due to vibration. This in spite of considerable effort to prevent hose/tarmac contact.
Can anyone answer any of the following questions?
Is this a common problem with pressure washers?
Do Alto machines have a poor record in this respect?
Is there any way to repair punctured pressure hoses?
Is the hose/washer connection a standard fitting common to various makes or is it necessary to purchase a hose specific to the manufacturer?
If the fittings differ, do any of the currently popular machinesâ€™ hoses fit Alto - I donâ€™t see Alto products around these days?
I think Alto is of Danish manufacture. This model is a DIY machine rather than professional type but quite powerful. RRP was c.Â£190 when purchased some 5 years ago.
