Pressure Washer Nozzles Choosing Guide

Pressure washer nozzles are an important part of a pressure washer and they can help you complete a variety of cleaning tasks. In this pressure washer nozzles guide, BISON–a professional pressure washer manufacturer in China–will discuss everything you need to know.


How to choose the right pressure washer nozzles?

The use of pressure washers requires nozzles to customize the spray pattern. With a universal nozzle, different nozzles can be selected for cleaning tasks depending on the job requirements. Each nozzle can produce a different spray pattern for different cleaning purposes. 

The red nozzle creates a 0 degree spray pattern and is one of the most powerful nozzles, but requires great care when using it to ensure that it does not cause any damage to the surface being cleaned. It’s rarely used because its spray convers to little area (and the force is so high that it’s unsafe to use on many surfaces) that it takes a long time to clean anything. In some cases, it can be used to remove very tough lumps on construction equipment stuck to dirt or rust or, at the correct distance, to remove tough stains on high-strength concrete.

The yellow nozzle (15 degrees) produces a 15-degree wide spray pattern and is ideal for aggressive cleaning, such as cleaning garage floors or removing stains from concrete. used to prepare surfaces for painting. Used from the proper distance, it does an excellent job of removing tough mud and grime.

The green nozzle (25 degrees) produces a 25-degree spray pattern and is suitable for general cleaning purposes such as outdoor furniture, brick patios, sidewalks and decks. The most commonly used nozzle tip in the home. Great for boats, cars, patio furniture and driveways. Because it creates a nice wide layer of water, it cleans larger areas faster.

The white nozzle (40 degrees) creates a 40-degree spray pattern and is best suited for cleaning delicate surfaces that are easily damaged, such as house siding or soft stucco walls.  Low pressure, ideal for fragile surfaces like windows and shutters.

The black nozzle (65 degrees) produces the widest, softest stream of all the nozzles and can be used to apply detergent or rinse soap. By choosing the right nozzle for the job, you can easily perform a variety of cleaning tasks while ensuring that your surfaces are not damaged.

what makes this tip nozzle special is that not only does it have the widest angle(~65°), but it also has a larger orifice. It requires a larger orifice to reduce velocity, which increases pressure in the hose. The increased pressure draws the cleaner into the lines so that you can lather up surfaces for easier cleaning.

Spray with a lower power nozzle and watch the dirt fly away before cleaning.

Different types of pressure washer nozzles

pressure washer nozzles guide

0° red nozzle tip – Maximum blast

  • It’s rarely used because its spray covers so small an area (and the power is so high, making it unsafe to use on many surfaces) that it takes so long to clean anything.
  • It can sometimes be used to remove caked-on, very tough dirt or rust on construction equipment or tough stains on high-strength concrete at a decent distance.
  • The turbo nozzle mimics the red-tip force but is much more helpful.
  • Don’t use this nozzle on soft surfaces (wood, siding, cars).
  • Homeowners should rarely use this pressure washer nozzle.

15° yellow nozzle tip – Medium stripping

For preparing painted surfaces.

Used at the correct distance, it does a great job of removing tough mud and grime.

25° green nozzle tip – Gentle cleaning and lifting

Probably the most commonly used nozzle tip in the home.

Great for boats, cars, patio furniture, and driveways.

Because it creates a wide sheet of water, larger areas can be cleaned faster.

40° white nozzle tip – Minimum Spraying

Low pressure, ideal for delicate surfaces like windows and shutters.

65° black tip – Soap nozzle

The soap tip nozzle is unique because it has the widest angle (~65°) and a larger orifice. It requires a larger orifice to reduce velocity, which increases pressure in the hose. The increased pressure pulls the cleaner into the lines so you can apply soap to the surface for easier cleaning.

Before cleaning, spray with a low spray nozzle, and watch the dirt fly away.

Special purpose nozzles

Rotary/turbo nozzle

  • One of the most valuable nozzles is because it combines the power of a 0-degree nozzle with the spray area like a 25-degree nozzle and adds pulse action by rotating the water jet at 1800 – 3000 rpm.
  • When the spinning nozzle hits the surface, it makes a cone shape (it spins the jet so fast it looks like a cone, like the orange safety cone from the tip of the nozzle)

Adjustable/variable nozzle

  • Ability to quickly change 6+ modes – 0 degrees, 15 degrees, 25 degrees, 40 degrees, built-in soap and rinse settings.
  • Save time on cleaning jobs such as household dirt and mold from decks, concrete, and siding.

Foam cannon

  • Traditionally used for washing boats, cars, windows, and more.
  • Typically has plastic, stainless steel, and brass components.
  • Adjustable nozzle to control foam output.

How to choose the perfect nozzle for your cleaning job

how to choose pressure washer nozzles

Before starting to pressure wash any surface, follow these four steps:

  • Use common sense when selecting nozzles
  • Start with a wider-angle nozzle
  • Keep your distance at first. Start far away, slowly approach
  • Always test on a small area of the surface.

If this is your first-time pressure cleaning, you’ll quickly notice how intuitive it is. You don’t want to damage the surface naturally, so keep your distance. When you’re comfortable, move a little closer, making sure to avoid damaging the surface.

If the surface is stubborn, move the spray closer to the surface first, as distance is one of the easiest way to adjust the effective pressure. If that still doesn’t work, change to a more robust nozzle, and when you start cleaning again, be sure to start 4 feet from the surface, approaching as above.

Nozzle care

Clean the nozzle with a pin before each use.

Changing the nozzle on the gun wand is very simple:

  • Lift the retainer to release the old nozzle (if still in place)
  • When installing a new nozzle, lift the retainer, insert the new nozzle, and remove the retainer to secure it.
  • After installation, verify that the new nozzle is working correctly.


So, let me summarize it for you. When choosing a pressure washer nozzle, the key is to choose the one that best meets your cleaning needs. Only by choosing the right nozzle can you maximize the effectiveness of our high-pressure cleaning machine and save valuable time at the same time.

First of all, if you are cleaning in areas that have never been cleaned before, it is recommended that you try using a 40° high-pressure washer nozzle at the beginning. Find a spot about 2 feet from the surface and spray the water, then slowly work your way closer to see the effect. If you find that it’s a little far away and still doesn’t feel clean enough, try changing to a smaller nozzle and continue operating as before until it feels better and can’t cause damage to the surface.

Of course, if you feel that you have used too much force, the items to be cleaned may be damaged. At this time, you need to stop quickly, move a little away before starting cleaning, or change to a nozzle with a larger mouth.

Pressure washer nozzles - Everything you need to know FAQs

Black 65° nozzle tips have the most expansive fan to give you comprehensive coverage. Many people use it as a soap nozzle.

It requires the lowest possible pressure to get rid of anything, yet it creates a sustained foam that sprays the cleaner thoroughly over your car.

The purpose of the nozzle is to restrict the water flow from the pressure washer. The more limited the flow of water, the higher the velocity, resulting in more force or pressure from the spray.


Each nozzle has its own specially designed spray pattern. It’s not just a different color or shape to suit the style. A particular color or shape corresponds to a specific spray angle and water flow intensity. Knowing the differences between each type can save you from creating more problems than you already have.

Your pressure washer nozzle may be made from a variety of materials, including:


Plastic: Most home pressure washers have sturdy plastic nozzles. They’re not as strong as other materials but are cheaper and won’t rust.

Brass: Brass is more expensive than plastic but also stronger. It’s less costly than stainless steel, but it’s also weaker and less resistant to chemicals. 

Stainless steel: The stainless steel nozzle is strong and provides additional protection from chemicals, which is excellent for commercial pressure washers that need to use chemicals in their equipment. 

The following types of nozzles are not suitable for cars:

  1. a) 0° nozzle (red)

The 0° nozzle produces the most powerful straight water jet that can cause severe damage. It has minimal coverage and is rarely used by homeowners.

However, some people use red nozzles to remove debris from concrete and solid surfaces. It can get close to hard-to-reach areas, and it can also be used to clean construction equipment.


  1. b) 15° nozzle (yellow)


The 15-degree nozzle tip has a broader spray pattern than the red 0-degree one but still delivers maximum spray power. So it’s perfect for cleaning dirt off bricks, sidewalks, and cement.

Washing with the yellow tip is also a preparatory step for painting and staining surfaces. It will give you the best results when you keep a distance of 4×4’s, but you should be careful.

Most of the nozzles are interchangeable, and many are not. If your pressure washer has a set of quick-connect pressure washer nozzles, you can safely use them on your machine. If you’re purchasing a new nozzle or kit, you’ll want to ensure it’s the right size or connection for your machine. For example, two standard quick-connect sizes are 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch. You can check your pressure washer’s owner’s guide to find out which size you need or check the nozzle that came with your washer. The size should be listed on the nozzle.

If you use a too-small nozzle, you could damage your pressure washer’s engine. You’ll also find that the stream is stronger than you expected. If you use a too-large nozzle, the stream will be weaker than expected.
