    I am looking at this model .. and it looked great until I saw the water 5.7 LPM .. it seems not enough when most other types and brands of water Pressure pumps use far more water to clean with .. even the most small cheaper models .. Why is this ?? Is it true more water flow the better ?

    When you operate the unit with no power applied, it dribbles out at a rate that is definitely below natural hose pressure. When the power is on but with no head attached to the lance, it also dribbles out, but at a slightly higher rate. However when power is on with a high-pressure head attached, it goes full-blast.

    So the key here is not so much the flow rate, but how the selected head that you attach concentrates the water. The included black power head that is intended only for cleaning concrete DOES IN FACT REMOVE PAINT FROM CONCRETE, and with extreme ease too! It makes the pressure more than powerful enough to do so - you would never use the black head to clean your car because it will literally strip the panel.

    The included yellow high-pressure head is used for car cleaning or more delicate concrete cleaning, and the included blue low-pressure soap head sprays the water out without any degree of pressure that would clean anything off (since it's intended purpose is to disperse diluted soap, not to blast things).

    I would assume that the low flow rate contributes to an overall water saving, but this unit is definitely no slouch when it comes to heavy duty cleaning duties.

    Thanks for your answer, I am on a rainwater tank supply, so it does help .. I like the simplicity of moving it around with the big wheels... Where as the other standup types are harder to handle..
